This is a delayed review, stay was during January 2019.

First stay at this Crowne Plaza, but I do like the Holiday Inn city center more, which is not far from this hotel. This hotel is rather dated and rooms would need a make over to keep up with the newer properties around town.

Arrival service was fine, and and the front desk was very courteous and upgraded me to a junior suite. Housekeeping did a great job in the overall cleanliness of the room, and I appreciated their evening turn down.

Breakfast was on the second floor and the seating was spacious. There’s also a large variety of breakfast choices, including some local favorites.

It’s also easy to walk around this part of town but might need 15-20 mins to walk to nearest subway station.

Overall, the hotel is in a good location only a 5-10 minute walk to the nearest subway station (currently Dongfeng Square, but another one is under construction nearer to the hotel). The hotel is very central and there is tons of stuff near the hotel. The room itself was a good size and the bedding was comfortable, though there was some noise with the construction outside. The bathroom was large and well apportioned. I had a chance to have breakfast at the restaurant which was ok but not stellar. The best part were the Chinese rolled pancakes but other items were not at the same quality.

The rooms were okay, do not recall that it was as spiffy as shown in the pictures here but nothing to really complain about. Best thing about it is the toiletries - they gave Borghese toiletries which were really nice.

Breakfast was so-so - the dining room was not heated. For a 4-star hotel this is not acceptable but I find it a strange norm in China for public areas in hotels to be unheated - even in the larger international chains. The Crowne Plaza is feeling its age and looking a little worse for wear. Location-wise we didn't explore much but there are eateries nearby which made it convenient to find food.

We stayed here on 2 separate periods within a week in end Dec 2019. We were here for 1 night upon our arrival in Kunming and the last 2 nights of our 1 week holiday in Yunnan.
We were very impressed with the service level provided during both occasions. For the first night, during check-in, we were told by the reception staff that although our room is supposed to be non-smoking, they just want to ensure that we are fully comfortable with it, especially in terms of cigarette odour. They offered to bring us up to the room for us to evaluate. Although we eventually took up the room even though there is a very, very faint cigarette odour, we were impressed by the efforts of the staff to ensure we had a comfortable stay. During our second stay, we got a different room which did not have any odour at all.
The room is very pratically decked with huge and comfortable beds to accomodate the 3 of us in a family. There is just one minor point to highlight. There is a transparent glass panel looking into the shower cubicle from the room, with a blind built into the glass. The blind can be completely or partially shut or left completely opened with a magnet on the frame. The blind in our first room was not able to be shut completely, leaving small gaps, which is not so convenient for a family with grown-ups.
Service level is impeccable, extending beyond that which we received during check in. Our requests were all met in a timely and accurate manner.
The location of the hotel certainly got a "10 out of 10" rating from us. It is just a walking distance to what must be the major shopping and entertainment belt of the city. There were no less than 4 huge shopping malls there, including a pedestrian-only street, lined by scores of shops and malls. And for food, restaurants are aplenty, including a China food street, with all sorts of local delicacies on offer.

The hotel is in a good location. 5mins walk to a subway station and big shopping malls. We booked a club room but we didnt find a club access worth paying extra for. Food presentation through out the day was not great and the club looked very dark in the afternoon. Staffs in the club couldn't speak english well. Coffee the in club was not great. The place lacked of the atmosphere and looked tiring. Breakfast at main restaurant was not so good. Some staff coughing without covering her mouth and staff didnt understand when you just want to order a simple Espresso. When we made use of Platinum elite drink voucher at lobby bar, we ordered a beer and first lady said No Beer.... But how is it possible that a hotel doesnt have a beer? After​ waiting and asking for other concierge staff to sort it out, they could bring us beer..... We were confused.
Anyway, it was an ok one night stay.
