Crowne Plaza Hotel

I appreciated the good price from Priceline, but when I added all fees, parking, valet plus valet tips, it ended up being more expense than I was comfortable with.

Positives: Clean, quiet, professional personnel, friendly personnel, beautiful view from 15th floor and

Negatives: Parking inconveniently located so I had to pay for valet since I use crutches, TV confusing to navigate.

Crappy pay to parking, bar across street only close restaurant besides the one in the hotel. TV small and had lines in it, lamp shocked me when<BR/>I turned it off. Desk people not helpful and thought my son was not really staying there (he has tattoo's). Hotel doesn't carry information about IMAX, restaurant or any local attractions. When asked for info they said they had none and moved on to the next customer without helping us find info for food or anything. Bathroom so small I couldn't barely get dressed in it (I'm 5'9 but not huge).

Positives: Bed was very comfortable.

Negatives: Small room and no room to move in bathroom very tiny.

Crowne Plaza Hotel

When the hotel was built, my room was probably beautiful. However, it has been allowed to slip. The walls in my room were scuffed and dirty and needed a paint job. The bed spread on my bed had a huge cigarette burn hole. I was disappointed that instead of replacing a ruined bedspread, they just turned it over in hopes I wouldn't notice. This hotel is very noisy. My room faced over the street instead of the river. The traffic noise reverberated up from the street and off the buildings and into my room all night long. The windows require soundproofing, which they have not provided. I also could hear every noise coming through the thin walls and under the door. The quality of my stay was what I would have expected out of a Motel 6 or Super 8. I'm glad I didn't pay the rack rate on the room, more than 6 times what I paid.

Positives: The bed was very comfortable.

Negatives: Water spots on the ceiling. Noisy.

Crowne Plaza Hotel

The hotel room was very clean with a classical decor, which is inviting. The common areas, (including the exercise room) are currently under construction. They weren't good for my trip, but I do plan on returning there, hopefully they'll be improved by then. The restaurant food wasn't great and if it was warmer, I'd go somewhere else for dinner.

Positives: The room was nice, good decor, and free WiFi is a big plus.

Negatives: The restaurant food was okay at best, and the common areas are currently being remodeled.

I have stayed at Crowne Plazas in Phoenix, Minneapolis and Irvine. This would fall very short of those hotels. I would not stay here again.

Crowne Plaza Hotel

The parking garage was an extra charge, confusing, inconvenient, and a long walk especially with luggage. Called regarding no hot water, was told since we were at the end of the hall we would have to let the water run about 5 min first, by then the tub was 3/4 full of water. (Maybe this method explains the water stains on the ceiling?) One sink had the water turned off. It rained during our stay and I woke up to dripping from 4 places around the window,soaking the carpet. The dining room windows leaked. The beds were extremely comfortable. No pool due to renovations.

Positives: The beds were very comfortable.

Negatives: Windows leaked during rain, no hot water in the evening.

Great hotel but the room was so loud from the elevator hum and dings for each floor I didn't sleep a wink. They obviously know the room is too loud since the next morning I found a little bad w/ear plugs.

Positives: great hotel, lousy room next to elevator

Negatives: hotel empty and gave me a room that literally needed earplugs (hotel provided)

Needs maintenance on televisions in rooms. Maintenance personnel told us they are having a problem with all their televisions not changing channels as they should, etc.

Positives: Spacious room.

Negatives: Television didn't work correctly, even after they came to attempt to fix. Left to bottles of lotion and no shampoo in room.

Room nice though lots of outside street and train noise.

Positives: Location.

Negatives: Too few channels on TV, no pay for view, $6 per niter for parking even though not listed on price line. This added better than 10% to room rate.

The hotel eating area is under renovation. I am sure that it will be wonderful when it is opened again. For now, the continental breakfast was served in the bar.

Positives: The room was very clean and neat.

Negatives: The pool was not working; we could have gone to the Y; however, the time for that was quite limited. We were disappointed.
