Great location


23 July 2014

Our first time at a Crowne Plaza hotel...we usually stay at Holiday Inn or Holiday Inn Express. We were very impressed by the little upgrades in the bathroom and appreciated a real cup for our coffee in the room instead of a paper cup. The hotel is very nice and within walking distance of the board walk and Kind Street...and the shuttle takes you to the metro station! Very satisfied with our experience. We will stay there again.

Good Experience


23 July 2014

Everything was great, except 2 items I will mention:

1. There was a faint smell of cigarette smoke in the room we stayed. Especially the bathroom.

2. Not the hotels fault, but I wish there was a swimming pool. This obviously was not a deal breaker.

Very clean facility ; depending on room fantastic views of the Potomac river and some of Washington DC's landmarks.

Short walk to King street and the riverfront !

Shame, what seemed like a great value turned out to be so much hassle


21 July 2014


I recently stayed at the Crowne Plaza mostly because of convenience to my work. But that's pretty much where the benefit of choosing this hotel lies, and I probably will do everything in my power to not choose it again. The receptionist was kind and helpful, but immediately upon getting on the lift, I knew that it might be a mistake. The lift I chose smelled of old wet dog with formaldehyde, it was nauseating. I thought it might have been a fluke, but it turns out, all the lifts have that permanent smell, all the time.

The beds are incredibly uncomfortable, to the point where before you even lie on them, they have a concave aspect, as if they have been overused and provide barely any support. And this was in fact the case.

The hotel bar is tired and not welcoming, but the prices are fair for a bottle of wine.

While this alone would have normally made me question whether returning to this hotel, the instance that it cinched my decision was the night of Thursday July 17th, when at 3am the fire alarm went off, and of course, all the residents fled downstairs (regardless of whether I called downstairs to ask what was going on, but received no reply). I went downstairs, and after a significant amount of time, we were told that it was a false alarm, and to go back to our rooms - never mind that the alarm kept blaring till way past 4am, and it was impossible to get any sleep/respite. But even more infuriating was the fact that we received no compensation, no response, no apology from the management. I find that this is ghastly customer service, and collectively with all the other negatives, I can safely say I will not be returning.
