IHG Hotels & Resorts has recently celebrated the opening of its latest Crowne Plaza hotel in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada.
This new addition, named Crowne Plaza Saint John Harbour View, is a significant expansion of the Crowne Plaza brand in Canada, following a comprehensive conversion and renovation process.
Strategically located just minutes from Saint John Airport and within easy walking distance to the heart of downtown Saint John, the hotel offers guests a unique blend of coastal charm and stunning views of the bustling port city. Crowne Plaza Saint John Harbour View is designed to cater to both business and leisure travelers, featuring 135 premium guest rooms that blend comfort with productivity, over 5,500 square feet of meeting space, and a fully-equipped business center.
The hotel doesn’t just cater to human guests; it’s also pet-friendly. Additional amenities include a heated indoor pool and hot tub, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and an arcade for entertainment. The on-site restaurant, Harbourvue Horizon, offers a culinary celebration of local and international flavors, perfect for everything from intimate dinners to casual gatherings.
Guests staying at Crowne Plaza Saint John Harbour View will find themselves conveniently close to popular local attractions such as The New Brunswick Museum, Rockwood Park, Tin Can Beach, and the Reversing Falls, among others.
