The amenities for the conference were fantastic. The hospitality room where we had a pot luck dinner was adequate. Too bad there was not a kitchen. The lunch and dinner buffets down stairs were elegant.The staff was most helpful. My hotel room was good, except for the dark lighting Hard to see to put makeup on, and see yourself in...

Stayed at the crowne plaza for two nights. Room was clean, beds comfortable. Air conditioning worked great. It was a little hard to find driveway at night coming from West. Location off interstate was convient. East to get to Indians game, and Cleveland zoo. Variety of places to eat are close to the hotel.

When I think of Crown Plaza I think of an upscale lodging facility. From the outside this may look ok but it certainly needs to undergo a major renovation to be considered a real Crown Plaza Hotel. The room was good sized, shower was fine, bed was ok but the furnishings were certainly dated. My wife liked the separate lighted...

This hotel is advertised as a smoke free hotel. Upon entering our room there was a rather substantial cigarette odor. Rather than saying anything, we sprayed some Febreeze throughout the room and decided to deal with it. The hotel is situated in such a manor that it is rather difficult to get to. The wi-fi, although free, was terribly spotty....

Booked the Crown Plaza off Priceline for $71/night. Great deal. Ideal location. Helpful & friendly staff. Hotel restaurant food is delicious. However, this place should be marked as a 2.5 star hotel. It's advertised as similar to a Hyatt. It's no Hyatt. The sheets were stained, the air conditioner wall unit was as loud as a vacuum cleaner, and the...

Despite being on the executive quiet floor I was surrounded by noise. The room was reasonable and the price good for the week end. There was a lack of sockets which could be improved. The realy good thing was that the fridge actually showed degrees and as usually in the USA was on too low so I could see to...

I spent one night here on the way home. The Crowne Plaza promotes itself as a 4-star experience, probably based upon the amenities available. But I would never rate it highly based upon quality. It's just a shabby outdated cheap Holiday Inn, way overdue for a make-over. There is nothing luxurious about this place. Service mediocre like making me wait...
