Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Debbie513 Great Stay and Excellent Service
Overnight leisure stay. Staff provided hotel van for those of us attending a local concert. Bedding was very comfortable. All staff that we encountered very knowledgeable and very friendly. Rooftop bar/lounge offered live entertainment, which was great! All in all, I would recommend this hotel and will plan to stay again when I'm in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Danbert Best IHG hotel I've ever stayed
The facility was very clean and convenient. The service from the front desk was extremely friendly. I really felt like a rewards member the way I was treated. The bed was extremely comfortable and the pillows were so good we inquired with the front desk to know where I could get some for home.

Stayed Saturday, decenber 28, 2013
Room smelled very bad,, bad air quality. Midnight front lobby desk team not friendly.
10am front desk team very friendly.
Superior restaurant team; very friendly day and night, and very responsive and accommodating. Great entertainment in lounge at midnight. Breakfast buffet was kept hot and very clean.
Elevator, very worn looking, full of gashes and chipped wood.
Encountered valet that clung waiting for tip
Overall, hotel needs a very deep cleaning, needs to be aired out, probably, an extensive duct work cleaning..and new leadership and training of the late night desk shift.
I would probably stay someplace us, but believe this is the best you'll get in downtown dayton

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GaryBee Crowne Plaza, Dayton
In my opinion, Crowne Plaza is by far the best hotel in Dayton. The rooms are modern, clean and spacious, and the beds are extremely comfortable. The staff couldn't be more friendly or helpful. It's the little things that make a difference. This is only hotel I've ever stayed at where you can plug your cellphone into the reading lamp by the bed, and it was the first time that I got a thank you note from housekeeping for leaving a tip. The restaurant on the top floor has spectacular views and is open till midnight. I found the food and drink to be very good.
Excellent value for the money. I've stayed at this hotel often and have never had a problem.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by maospt Sold out hotel to much to handle
This hotel is in need of some updating. During our weekend at the Dance Master's weekend, the hotel was sold out. The restaurant did not have enough staff to accommodate the amount of people. When the room was cleaned, the staff left their duster in the room. The elevators ran super slow, especially at peak times. It just didn't seem there was enough staff to accommodate the sold out hotel. I will commend the valet upon our arrival who was very nice helping with all our dancing items.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jesicajns No heat or hot water
We stayed for 2 nights and the first night we froze as the heat in our room didn't work. The next morning there was no hot water when we called to get someone to fix our heat in our room we were told they were out of hot water cause a lot o people were there ummm it is a hotel. They came to fix the heat but it still continued to blow cold air. Then on the 2nd night we had no washcloths and called for them to bring some they never did we actually had to call back down on Sunday morning. We were there for a dance connvention that we attend every year but I am seriously considering a different hotel for next years stay

12 floor security is amazing. Hotel locks the elevator and you must call to get it unlocked before 06300. Stay at your own risk.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by hdad99 Great Service
My favorite part about my stay at the Crowne was the great service. The room service was open til midnight the night of my arrival, making the fact that I hadn't eaten a non-issue. The folks at the front desk made me copies of a handout a needed for a presentation that afternoon. They were fast and the cost was cheap. The room service supplied me with as many coffee pods as I wanted. Everyone was as friendly as can be.
The temperature controls in the room were not completely easy to understand (seemed to be controlled by the thermostat AND the blower). The candy in the vending machine was way too old (fool me twice, shame on me). The walls weren't thick enough to mask the baby crying next door and there was a weird hum in-or-behind my wall. Still, that sort of thing generally doesn't keep me awake, so the little things that bothered me were just that: little.
The conference facilities we used while there were very nice (comfortable, well-lit, clean, pretty, etc.). I don't know who was in charge of the food for the lunch and dinner I had as part of the conference, but I could say it was mostly good. The salads were a bit wilted. Otherwise, it was good-to-very-good.
If someone were to ask me if this would be a good place to hold their next conference and house people, I would say YES.

I stayed at the Crowne Plaza for a wedding and was greeted by excellent service from Robert and Eric. Upon finding a problem with our room, the staff immediately corrected it, assisted us in switching rooms, and compensated us for the inconvenience. Robert, Eric, and John were particularly great. I look foward to staying here again in the future.

In most cases I thought Crowne Plaza hotels have free breakfast, but you only give discounts for government workers or former government workers. How about teachers who taught people for decades how to read, write and do math? I highly believe we deserve a discount or a free breakfast.
So many teachers had sacrifice their time, energy, and monies to help students in this country and around the world to be nation builders, care for children not of their own, but making a difference in so many lives. Remember if it wasn't for a teacher, where will you be?
Don't forget about us.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by process1 Slow
Our stay overall was not bad, but some things to note are the following:
There is not a complimentary breakfast of any kind and if you eat in the restaurant be sure to have plenty of time because they are slow to take order, slow to bring food, and slow to get you the bill, not to mention there are pricey!
To keep going with the slowness is the elevators. There are 3 elevators but you will still wait from 5 to 10 minutes for the elevator.
and for the final slowness: The tub/shower took about 8 hours to drain all the water out!!
If you are in need of a hair dryer... well it is in a bag on the back of the bathroom door.. typically it is attached to the wall. Also the bathroom does not have enough lighting.
The perk side of things is that the complimentary shuttle service will take you anywhere you want to go which is really great!
this hotel doesnt have an indoor pool or hot tub/spa.. that would be a great addition for them since the weather is a bit cool there

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Daytonvisitor Great Room, Mediocre Food
Had king-sized room at conference rate. Very nice view. Room very clean and nicely appointed. Very comfortable bed and pillows. Desk, small fridge, chair, ottoman. Comfortable climate control. Definitely recommend hotel itself.
My main complaint is food at hotel. In room coffee provided was mediocre. Breakfast at hotel restaurant was very poor, with processed potatoes and sausage and tasteless bread. Food provided for meeting was mediocre at best, and sometimes not edible. The good news is a the hotel is just a few easy blocks to the Oregon District's excellent restaurants. Definitely look Thai9, The Roost, and Lily's Bistro for amazing dinners. Go to the smoked burger place at the corner of Fifth and Jefferson for an amazing, southern lunch of pulled pork or brisket.

I was on a 2 week assignment in Miamisburg and had to leave the hotel at 6am in the morning so consequently the restaurants and continental breakfast werent available. THe front desk manager went out of his way to ensure i had breakfast every morning. Every employee from the valets to concierge attendant were exceptionally customer oriented. My room was very comfortable and the amenities were good. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Soccerdad45881 Comfortable and clean.
Don't stay on the 12th floor on weekends. The band on the 13th floor sounded fine, but I was trying to sleep...Some of the public areas were dirty, mostly the parking garage entrance areas. Our room was spotless and well equipped. The gym was nice and clean. Ask of the employees that we encountered were helpful and polite.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by latida Didn't do at all what they said
When I made the reservations 3 months earlier, I asked for a first floor room for 4. When we got there, they gave me a 7th floor room. I mentioned it was supposed to be the first floor, he checked, and none were available. We made reservations for 4, and only had 3 of each size of the towels. Went to take a bath the first day, and there were hairs (not ours) in the tub (wasn't cleaned properly#. Went to turn the heat on, and we had to shut it off in less than a minute, we thought we were burning up the place. The burnt smell was so bad, so we had no heat also. To drive into the hotel, the big pillars are very close to the car #not much extra room). When parking in the ramp, the ramp is HORRIBLE, very tight corners and I hope to never be on it again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MarkCo Very disappointed
On a two-and-a-half day business trip to Dayton OH, the meeting representatives had recommended that we stay at the Dayton Crown Plaza. Since I flew into Dayton, I used the hotel shuttle and called the day before travel to advise the hotel that I needed the shuttle. I had to talk to 4 people to make arrangements. Not inspiring.
On the day of travel I got lucky because the shuttle had to drop someone off at the airport and this was my chance to get to the hotel. There was no record that I needed to be picked up. The driver was rude. My colleague who arrived at the front desk at the same time had to take a cab. Conclusion: do not count on shuttle service.
Hotel staff did not seem informed about my meetings and I had to find my own way. I used the restaurant late at night (around 10PM ) for dinner. It took an eon to get my food. Conclusion: the restaurant does not work.
My room was OK, the bathroom is just small enough that you cannot fully open the bathroom door.
Food during the meeting (for which I personally paid) was dismal (I was still hungry when the meal was over) and very expensive. Conclusion: this hotel does not provide good value for the money.
Overall conclusion: don't go to the Crown Plaza in Dayton. It is better to rent a car, stay and eat where you want, and then attend the meetings that you need to attend in the Convention Center or at the Crown Plaza.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DT25 Awful experience
I was very disappointed in my overnight business stay at the Crowne Plaza in Dayton, OH. First, I had to utilize whatever minimal plumbing skills I had to fix a nonflushing toilet by making an adjustment in the water tank. Second, the complimentary shampoo and lotion in the bathroom were previously used. Third, I did not receive a wake-up call when I spoke to the front desk the night before requesting one. The first two issues are simply gross and disgusting for lack of better descriptors. The third obviously ruined my morning, rushing me around all day not allowing me to buckle down and focus on my tasks that needed to be completed that day. I did not complain about the nonworking toilet or previously used toiletries to the front desk. However, when I did bring up their missed wake-up call, they did not acknowledge or even apologize for missing it. My administrative coordinator, who books my business trips and those of others in my department, has added this Crowne Plaza location as a place to NOT use in the future.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rob103 Front desk staff was great and room very clean
I enjoyed my stay here this week and would of given them I high rating but we could never get served in their restaurant. It was a neat restaurant and lounge on the top floor of the hotel but when we attempted to eat their for lunch the staff was to busy talking with each other to help us. I had to flag one down to request a table and then we sat there 10 minutes and they never brought us a menu. There was only one other table with people eating. The three staff working stood near the front talking to each other while other customers waited to be seated. We final left and I told the staff as we were leaving we would have loved to eat but they never serviced us. Several of the other people who could not get waited on left with us. The next night I tried the bar and it was 10 minutes for the bar tender to make a very weak double gin and tonic.
Everyone else was great and I will stay here next time in town just will not attempted to the restaurant or bar. I even over heard one of the catering staff members in the elevator tell some guest not to eat at the restaurant, now that is bad.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tomcliett Almost Perfect
I loved everything about this hotel except the valet. The rooms and desk staff, the wonderful rooftop bar, the mints on my pillow... all great. As a frequent business traveler, I valet a lot. This is such a simple piece I have never actually seen it executed poorly until this weekend. No one was EVER there to get my car. I always had to drop my keys off at the front desk. Calling to have my car brought around was a tragedy of errors that usually left me with plenty of time to contemplate life on the curb.
Great hotel, sort out how valet works and you will have it all.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ConfrenceCrawler An OK stay
I have stayed at a number of IHG family properties including many other Crown Plazas and of all of them this was the least appealing. This is not to say that there was anything that was drastically wrong with the place. It is just a little bit run down and in an area that is a little bit run down. The food was OK but not great, the room was OK but not great... you get the idea. One bright spot was the staff. All of my staff interactions were great and that goes a long way. If you have to attend a conference at the Dayton Convention Center this is where I would stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Marken Poor Breakfast buffet
Over all our stay was very good and we enjoyed the time we were there. The only problem was the breakfast buffet which had a lot to be desired. We ate there three mornings and everything was cold such as eggs, meat etc. The first morning there was cold cereal on the table but no milk for it. We had to ask the waitress for it. Also no juice was available and had to ask waitress for it and there was a charge. Also there was no bread or rolls and if you asked for toast there was a charge for that too. Most buffets don't charge extra for these things and is included with the buffet.

Check-in was swift and smooth, parking validation was smooth, though finding the garage takes a bit of know how - a cursory search of the Dayton Crown Plaza's webpage did not have anything about parking. Room was quiet and comfortable. King size bed was a great night's sleep. An overall wonderful experience.
