Excellent Stay


January 17, 2015


Was here for business and had an excellent stay. Was greeted with an immediate room upgrade on check in. The front desk staff were very friendly and professional.

The room was spotless and very well furnished. The bathroom was one of the cleanest I have experienced.

If you are a plane enthusiast (I am) a river view room gives a phenomenal view of the landing and take off patterns of DCA.

Wonderful stay overshadowed by excess charges and customer service run-around.


January 16, 2015

My three day stay was wonderful. I loved the hotel's location and appreciated one of their weekend promo rates. I enjoyed food at the onsite restaurant and the calming spray scents I always get at the Crowne Plaza.

When I checked in, I was told I would receive free parking because I was a platinum member and they gave me a parking card in addition to my room key. The final bill under my door and when I checked out looked accurate; however, days later my credit card showed an additional $60 parking charge. I originally parked on the street adjacent to the hotel because parking is free on weekends, but I decided to use the parking lot only because the lady that checked me in said it was free due to my hotel status.

I called the hotel to inquire about the charge and was told they no longer gave free parking to platinum members and the charges were valid unless I had written documentation of free parking claims. I was told the practice was in effect for almost a year so I was extremely confused and angry as to why I was offered free parking in the first place. I was also angry that neither the bill under my door or the rep at checkout informed me of the parking charges.

After 10 minutes of going back and forth with the representative and then 3 follow-up calls, I was told there is nothing the hotel could do because the accounting department is closed for a week due to the holidays and the parking lot is actually owned and operated by another company even though the parking lot is attached to the hotel. The manager said I needed to handle the dispute with the parking company even though I never had any dealings with the parking company directly or knew anything about the parking until finding the charge on my credit card.

One of the hotel managers finally offered to credit my card $60, but I am still waiting to verify the refund.
