Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SmithsIntl Dissapointed as a Platinum guest
The inside of the hotel was recently renovated and has a wonderful atmosphere and charm to it, but that is where any charm ended. We were visiting our daughter at Fla Tech and a cold front had come through the area so the hotel was visibly slow. As Royal Ambassador Platinum members we enjoy an upgrade to a suite when available, but know that with IHG they only offer a one level upgrade . The upgrade we were offered had a small balcony facing another building but with a sliver of ocean view off to the side. The room was clean and recently renovated but small. With the hotel being so empty we asked if a suite upgrade was possible as we would be in the room working quite a bit over the next few days, but were told it was not an option as a platinum upgrade...only for another 100 dollars per night.
The bartender on the first night made an amazing margarita but the following day they were completely different made by 2 other bartenders. Each bartender seems to have their own recipe. The dinner pork chops were good and the lunch crab cake BLT was excellent but the wings at the bar were overcooked and the smoked fish dip tasted like it was scooped from a tub of premade dip.
Overall the stay was average.... very bland just like the fish dip. We won't be staying again

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nika00 Gorgeous, Newly Renovated, Excellent Staff..Divine Cuisine
It was an absolute joy to stay here. I was extremely shocked by the consideration from all staff, everyone was so attentive and made my stay that much more enjoyable. The food preparation was divine, I am a foodie and look at each detail and they hit it on every mark. The Chef is a fabulous man, i was able to meet him a few times as he came out to see how we had enjoyed the food. None of it was over bearing, just enough genuine consideration that made the trip extra special. Everyone who i ran into was enjoying there stay just as much. As for the room, all the convince, large refrigerator, and large spacious room. I slept well in the comfortable bed/sheets. I can't wait to come back to town and stay here again. The location is prime!! gorgeous beaches and just the same for the view from the room. Your centrally located between Eau Gallie and 192. I love this area! Thank you to all who made my stay one to remember.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dlight Great room
I had placed a special request when reservation was made, to be as close as possible to my children and grandchildren, and I gave the name. Upon arriving I asked at the desk, again, if I was close to them? I was told yes, they had the request. My room was as far removed from them as it could get....another building...had to go walk on outside around building, take elevator down to first floor(or walk the stairs), over to main building and get an elevatotor in that building and go up. That is nearby??? I could not have been any farther away!!!! No one even acknowledged at check in that it was not close, or they could not accommodate my request.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Petrollaw Awesome staff and accomodations
I have been staying here for 13 years, awesome staff, disappointed with restaurant quality, it deteriorated significantly, signature seafood chowder watered down with less ingredients, menu selection used to have delicious variety including creme brule, no more, additionally IGH rewards club promoted but restaurant is not even in the IGH dining rewards network, what's up with that????
New years party was okay but given jazz night band variety, for new years they could have had an even better band, food quality was okay but was probably catered out based on the number of guests but food used to be better when prepared by hotel staff in the past.
Other than that, it was a great room upgrade and a good time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dino312 New Years eve bash
The package deal was perfectly priced, much better priced than 2012, wish it came with breakfast. However I do have2 or 3 complaints we didnt like... the dance floor was way too small for all those people, couldnt even get out there. The dinner could have been better, meaning.. the salad wasnt good.. spinach leaves.. thats it, but its just salad I guess.... and main course ( prime rib), smallest Ive seen and thin, needs to be thicker. Also the Bar, if its a cash bar, which this was, need to have more top shelf, I drink rum and there was NO Captain Morgan !!! the spiced rum you had doesnt even come close!!! and you charge more for that than what I pay for Cap't Morgan !!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JoePD New Year's Eve Party
The food served was average but would have been probably better if it was served hot. The Ballroom was very crowded, but bearable. The music was provided by a band that had knew one type of music, I guess . It would have been nicer if the Band had, or played a wider variety of music.
The event OrganIzer should decide what age group the party is going to be tailored too, or make pleasureable for a larger age group.
The wide screen TV was a very nice touch.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by B.brown711 Great New Year's Eve.
My boyfriend and I spent New Year's Eve here and it was amazing. Even with a booked hotel it was quiet and peaceful, we never would have known it was that busy. The breakfast buffet was excellent the fruit was fresh and perfectly cut. He was able to walk right down to the beach and do some morning fishing while I slept in the comfy king sized bed. The spa was slightly over prices but worth every penny. I have never been so relaxed. The staff was very kind and helpful. Overall an amazing stay and I would recommend to anyone looking for a night on the beach.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ray Cap Our stay was a good one with one glitch!!
The room and sevice was excellant. We signed up for the Christmas brunch as I was looking forward to a nice medium rare Rib roast ,which was the fetured item on the menue. We made our resavations for 4 p.m.. By the time we sat down to eat they were out of the roast, instead the supposedly served filet mignon, which was cooked fine but had absolutly no flavor. Extrermely disapointed!!!!Other than that the stay was fine.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Rlgr Disappointing
Having a choice of two decent hotels in the area for my family and needing 10 rooms. We went with this hotel bc of the extra amenities. But they said the air conditioners are noisy, rooms are mildew smelling, and the bathrooms look like they are in need of repair....disappointing since this is a hotel that was completely redone after hurricanes several years ago and under went a 2 year remodeled.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by AaroTravel Beach & Go
We are beach people. So there's an automatic plus. The service will get you a key to your room, but that's it. The rooms do not have great views of the beach, only the suites facing the beach do. Even though they were less than have full, we were put in a side view room as close to the street as you could get. From the pool and the beach, I could tell the view didn't get much better. Who goes on vacation to sit in the room anyway? It would have been nice if they would have tried. We were flat out denied. My wife has been a travel agent for 17 years and we have stayed all over the world in the past 25 years. So I am saying from experience, we were lied to. That's not good customer service, but if you want to stay on the beach with a pool, bed, & bath, it still works fine. It’s run like a full service resort with no service.

I have stayed hear before and always enjoy the staff, location, and room. With the renovations completed about a year ago, the lobby, rooms, and common areas are even better. I look forward to staying here on my next visit to the Melbourne area.

My wife and I have stayed at the Crowne Plaza Melbourne-Oceanfront numerous times. This was our first stay since the remodel was complete. The hotel was already great, now it is awesome. Had drinks and appetizers on the deck - love the new furniture and got introduced to Dobel Tequila by Simon! Beautiful Hotel, highly recommend, had a great stay.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by casey46504 Not Set up to handle guest and events together.
During the stay there were several events going on at the hotel which made for a crowded situation. The dining room was closed off to guest leaving only the deck area to eat at which was accessed by walking through the swimming pool area, then walking through one of the events with those people looking at you like you were invading their territory. As their event continued on, they started expanding from their event area into the deck dining room area, again crowding out the guest staying at the hotel.
After dinner my wife and I wanted to walk the beach, however the only area to access the beach was right through the middle of one of the events, again with the people in that event giving us dirty look for walking through “their area.” Coming back into the lobby after our walk the lobby was extremely crowded and loud.
We left the property for a while, upon returning we found no parking spaces available on the north or south side of the hotel, but in turn had to park in the overflow area across the street. My opinion is that event parking should be across the street with guest parking in the adjoining parking lots to help with ease of carrying luggage, also considering at some point those for the event will be leaving that night and the group that was there when we were there were very loud when they left. Again parking across the street would help cut down on the noise level for those staying at the hotel. Leaving the next morning there were many parking slots open from the event people the night before again making it frustrating having to haul our luggage up the three flights of the bridge to get to our car in the overflow parking. Overall not a well thought-out way to integrate guest and special events, especially when you are taking away amenities such as the inside dining room from guest…

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BEbm Great wedding
We picked the Crowne Plaza because they had a beautiful outside deck that rests delicately against the ocean. Our guests loved the view-even on a cloudy day.
The hotel has renovated the building and the new colors are bright, light and "happy." All rooms have a refrigerator and microwave, The ballrooms are also very modern.
At first, I hated the idea of a ballroom reception, but after viewing the Crowne, I loved the idea of the ceremony and cocktail party on the deck outside and then using the ballroom for the reception. It was a great change of scenery. I had 80 guests (all out of town) and had plenty of room for the cake, DJ, photo booth and dance floor in the smaller ballroom.
Lauren, the wedding coordinator and Allie, in guest services were wonderful. VERY organized and answered all my questions very quickly.The wedding packages are not only affordable, but all the packages offer tons of food. Lauren will work with whatever you want, so if you want to change the menu slightly, she will get it done. We had a few minor changes three days before our wedding and Lauren was right by our side to make sure everything was completed.
As I mentioned Allie, in guest services, she was a wonderful help with planning the guest rooms, gave us updated guest lists often and was extremely professional if any issues occurred (only one very minor room issue and the problem was quickly solved). I would also like to mention the Bartender that week (Arty, I believe) he bought my husband and I a round when we first arrived at the hotel.
The Hotel is located in a wonderful community. I was beyond happy having my wedding there, so were my guests. My guests flew from OH & WI and they had tons to do. they relaxed on the beach, took surf lessons, went to the Kennedy Space Center, went golfing, etc..

My husband surprised me with a Staycation at this beautiful hotel in an oceanfront suite. (Room 575) It was GORGEOUS!! The views of the ocean and sunset were amazing. The staff and played along when I made reservations for brunch. See my husband also threw me a surprise party disguised as brunch at the hotel too! Everything was perfect! Staff was respectful, food and bloody mary bar were fantastic! I highly recommend the rooms at this hotel AND their onsite catering!!! The Crowne made my husband look awesome!!! :) And he really is just awesome.. :) Thank you everyone!!!
Also- get a rewards card if you don't already! It just makes sense.
