Crowne Plaza Kitchener-Waterloo, Kitchener, ON

I spent most of the week at a pension and benefits conference in Kitchener.  It was held at the Crowne Plaza Kitchener-Waterloo and that's where I stayed from Tuesday evening 'til today.

I had a king executive room:

No tub but a HUGE shower!

To get to my room, I had to take an elevator to the fourth floor .... then walk down a hallway ... then take another elevator to the seventh floor.  It was ($180 plus taxes for Tuesday night and the conference rate of $144 plus taxes for Wednesday and last night).  My bed was comfy.  You can self-park ($12/night) or valet-park ($20/night) ... we had free parking and I parked it myself.  The parking building is behind the hotel (not attached).  I parked my car while it was still light ... I wouldn't want to do it at night (it's down an alley) as it seems creepy.  There was a fridge and microwave in the room.  WIFI was free and a bit slow.  I lost it yesterday so used my Internet stick instead.

Our conference was on the second floor.  When we booked the conference in the spring (I'm on the committee), the conference rooms were supposed to be renovated but they weren't.  They were okay, just kind of dated.

The hotel is downtown and there are lots of restaurants within walking distance.  There seems to be a mall across the street ... it looks old and I'm not sure if it's even open (I Googled and couldn't find a link for it).
