Help choosing 1 of 3 Hotels in Copenhagen

We have narrowed down our hotel options to 3 for our June (4 night) visit to Copenhagen. I was wondering if anyone had any feedback on any of the 3 options or their locations in Copenhagen?

1- IBSENS HOTEL on Vendersgade 23, 1363 København

2- HOTEL TIFFANY on Colbjørsensgade 28, 1652 København

3- CROWNE PLAZA COPENHAGEN TOWERS on Oerestads Blvd 114-118, 2300 Copenhagen

We know Tiffany is near the central train station and the Towers are the furthest outside the city. Although near both a metro & train stop are the Towers too far from the city center? Would the Ibsens be a better location over the Tiffany? Price wise they are all comparable & we feel they are each fairly comparable establishments. Any insight or words of wisdom?

Since I have never needed a hotel in my home city, I can only comment on location.
Crown Plaza is way out in the sticks. While it is close to a metro station, it is not in a very charming area. The hotel itself seems super nice, but mainly if you are on a business trip.
Tiffany is in Vesterbro, which use to be a sort of red light district area. There are still a bit of that left, but today it is more about bars and nightlife.
Ibsen is on a quite trendy street and close to Torvehallerne Food market. More up scale area and close to the main attractions.

We'll be staying at the Ibsens Hotel next July. I just booked it the other day. When choosing a hotel, I consulted with a friend who took the Rick Steves Scandinavia in 14 Days tour, asking where the tour group stayed in that city, and whether he liked the hotel. He said it was the Ibsens, and he loved it, his favorite hotel of the two week trip. Other hotels on his tour had the look of your typical business-conference hotel, he said, but this one had history, warmth and charm. His particular room was very large, and he loved the location of the hotel. I read Trip Advisor reviews and was very happy with what I read. Then, when I was on the Ibsens website, I learned they have a "book direct, price guarantee" policy: if you see a lower rate on any other website, you email them a screen shot of the other offer, to prove it's for the same nights and same type of room, and so Ibsens can see the cancellation policy for that offer, and also send a link to the third party booking website, and not only will they price match, but they'll give you a free upgrade to the next largest room. We were going to book "medium double" room to save money, using the hotel's official website because I'm always most comfortable with booking directly, but because of this policy, I searched for prices on third party booking sites. I found a great rate for the medium room on priceline.com, emailed the required information to the hotel, and Ibsens matched that price and we got upgraded to a large room. Rate converted to $123 USD per night. The hotel was very nice to work with in this process. All was done through emails.

Morten & Vickie thank you for the input. Exactly the kind of info I was looking for!

Morten having a local confirm the neighborhood environments surrounding the locations is priceless!

Vickie thx for the info and tip regarding the price match room upgrade policy. I didn't know that!

We stayed in the Crowne Plaza in 2014 since we had a cruise on NCL that had a nice package that included the hotel and free bus transport from the hotel to the cruise port. Taxis are expensive in Copenhagen and that saved us $$$.

Crowne Plaza is very close to a nice Mall where we found very affordable places to dine as well as a nearby commuter rail station that was easy to use to go to the main train station. Also, the train line that the hotel is on goes directly to the airport.
