Below is my hotel reviews for the Crowne Plaza Hotel Verona (IHG brand of hotels). I stayed at American hotels because I wanted to use points for award reservations and for more modern conveniences. These hotels are not found in the city center (as most American International brands are not usually in the center of town) but they were all easily accessible, modern, clean and luxurious. I booked award reservations 4-6 months out from my arrival and found availability.

Crowne Plaza Hotel Verona – Fiera
Via Belgio 16, Verona – 37135, Italy
The Crowne Plaza Hotel Verona claims to be the only international hotel brand in Verona (per the IHG website). My stay was in May and I was very impressed. Not only is the hotel very modern but it may be the cleanest hotel I’ve ever stayed in. The rooms were spotless and even the coffee maker seemed like it had never been used. The bathrooms were ultra-modern and clean.
There is an onsite gym, pool, restaurant and complimentary wi-fi. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a chance to sample these. However, based on my impression of the hotel, I can’t imagine it to be less than stellar.
By taxi, it is $12 euros one-way from the train station (Porta Nuova Verona). The hotel is not in the city center of Verona but is accessible by hotel shuttle bus or local bus.
The hotel shuttle bus has a schedule (3 times in the morning and 3 times in evening). You may have to reserve a spot ahead of time in peak times. It drops you off in the city center.
The local bus #98 is almost outside the entrance. From the front door/entrance: turn left, make a left at the first street (Via Francia), then right onto Via Roveggia. The street you are looking for is Via Roveggia – take the bus heading northeast to go into town. This street is kind of behind the hotel – just look for passing buses and look for the bus stop which will have a map of the different buses and where they are going. From there, it’s less than 10 minutes to the city center. While on the bus, I did pass by the train station. Thus, I’m sure there is a way to take the bus from the station to Crowne Plaza but I arrived after 9:30p so I just took a taxi.
The local bus #62 stops outside the hotel entrance but I am unsure if this will take you to Verona city center. If in need, there is a Tesla super-charger station next door to the hotel.
This hotel charges a city tax. However, I can’t locate the exact number on their website. When I was there I paid around $2.24 per person per night.
Recommend (Y/N): Yes
I would stay here again and definitely recommend the Crowne Plaza Hotel Verona.
