The Crowne Plaza The Hague is a five star hotel perfectly located between the city center of The Hague and the beach of Scheveningen. Both are just a few km away. I have had great experiences with the Crowne Plaza chain and this one didn’t disappoint at all! As soon as I approached the hotel, I saw 2 towers which are connected together. The new tower opened a few years ago and still looks brand new!
The lobby area has a cool vibe with up to date furniture, cool lightning and the most welcomed staff. ‘How was your journey?’, ‘Thank you for being an IHG member, here are some cookies’, etc. I love those small things and they do make a huge difference. Initially I was booked in a twin room, but at check-in I requested a king sized bed which was fulfilled with a smile and a heartbeat.
The club room I stayed in was very comfortable and spacious with a great view of a stunning garden. As every Crowne Plaza, they offer their dedicated sleep program called Sleep Advantage with complimentary products to assure a great night’s rest. And they worked! I slept very well. Bathrooms are great featuring a large shower and bath tub. When staying in one the club rooms, all minibar items are free of charge. Great value as it also includes sparkling wine, some yummy bites and fancy red wine.
After exploring the beautiful room, I went down to see the spa area which is called the Promenade Health Club & Spa. When the doors of the elevator opened, I immediately felt the relaxing atmosphere here. The place is huge with 900m² and features an indoor swimming pool, large fitness area and sauna/steam room area. When staying at the hotel, access is free and I highly recommend spending some you-time here! You will love it! I appreciated the opening hours as well, the pool for example is opened from 6:30am – 10:30pm every day. I love having a swim before heading to bed and in the morning before breakfast. The spa definitely is one of the highlights of the Crowne Plaza The Hague!
At night, I had a drink with the lovely management trainee of the hotel and looking at the menu, the prices are pretty fair here! 7,5 EUR for a cocktail in a five star hotel is cheap and trust me, they’re good! Again, a very nice atmosphere with some soft lounge music playing all over the place. A full service restaurant, Brasserie Brut, is located right next to the bar, offering a great variety of dishes at reasonable rates. No need to go out for dinner!
The Crowne Plaza The Hague is one of the better five star properties in the area! What truly makes this hotel unique is the service they provide. They will do everything to make your hotel stay smooth and perfect. This hotel is a good choice whether you are looking for a business hotel or leisure, it will please anyone! Highly recommended and I would return in a heartbeat!
