The Crowne Plaza Kensington has a modern and clean lobby when you enter, and I was greeted by friendly reception staff.
The room was done to a nice standard although was quite cramped overall (as you expect in London). The only issue this caused was having to move the bed when accessing the mini bar and amenities tray!
The bar/restaurant was closed when we visited so the Club bar was being used instead. This was a glass fronted room with large TV; unfortunately the bar had already been well-used by other guests and the floor was filthy with food people had dropped and staff had not had time to clean up.
As well as the great location just a couple of minutes from the tube station, the staff were friendly and attentive. I would be happy to return.
