Our son got married in Dayton and we and our guest stayed at the Crown Plaza. The staff the weekend of the wedding were very friendly and helpful. We had the rehearsal dinner and Breakfast at the Crown and the food was very good. The rooms could use a little updating, but overall a very nice hotel.

It was lovely staing in your hotel. Everything was spotless. Being in Dayton in April for the IHC and staying in your hotel is a tradition for our family.
Your staff was very kind and gracious.

It is a little dated; however, the desk associates, housekeeping staff, valets, and restaurant staff where outstanding. I couldn't have asked for a better get-a-way weekend.

My stay was in conjunction with a reunion group and I can honestly say that I have never been to a hotel where the staff was more friendly and helpful. Service with a smile is not just a slogan; it seems to be a way of life with your employees. Thank you for all your help in making this the best reunion ever!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rebecca O Limited hotel options in downtown Dayton but the staff makes the stay!
Despite limited lodging choices in downtown Dayton, I was impressed with the friendly and knowledgeable staff at the Crowne Plaza. They went out of their way to make recommendations, help with luggage and valet services.

Although the room was comfortable and clean, our experience with the hotel staff was not what we expect from a good hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Earl39 Above and beyond great service from Jeff K.
We arrived via motorhome and had a issue with the step. Jeff K. went above and beyond to help us temporarily fix and then permanently fix the step into the motorhome. We were not only able to use it again but did not have to worry about losing it on the way back home. Thank you Jeff for the great, friendly service. We really appreciated your above and beyond service. Thank you!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JJCSR CONFORTABLE BED/ROOM. STAFF VERY FRIENDLY/HELPFUL
THIS WAS OUR FIRST STAY IN DAYTON, OHIO AND WAS PLEASED WITH OVERALL EXPERIENCE. THE EVENT WE ATTENDED WAS AT THE CONVENTION CENTER ACROSS THE STREET, THE COVERED WALKWAY TO BOTH THE CONVENTION CENTER AND THE PARKING STRUCTURE WAS AN ADDED BONUS. SINCE IT RAINED ALL THREE DAYS WE WERE THERE. THE UNIVERSITY WAS ANOTHER DESTINATION WHILE THERE AND WAS A 5 MIN. DRIVE WITH NUMEROUS EATERIES IN THE VACINITY AS WELL.
BED COMFORTABLE, BREAKFAST BUFFET AND COFFEE WAS EXCEPTIONAL. IF THERE WAS A CON THING IT WAS THE CRAMPED BATHROOM. BUT GIVEN THE OVERALL EXPERIENCE, NO BIGGIE.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LordWebb77 Great Option For UD Parents' Weekend
We stayed at this property last weekend to attend Parents' Weekend at our daughter's sorority at the University of Dayton. It is a very nice property with excellent and attentive staff. If you have a car, I recommend that you use the valet service as cars are parked in a garage across the street. Valet service was very prompt. Also, there is a restaurant at the top of the hotel which had an excellent jazz trio at night, very friendly wait service, nice wine list and views of the city. Our room was nice with a very comfortable bed. They also had a very nice breakfast buffet which was quick and a nice change from the long waits we have experienced at other Dayton breakfast spots. It is a short drive to the UD campus, and this is now our go to hotel in Dayton when visiting our daughter at college.

We stayed at the Crowne Plaza just for a Friday night getaway. We were very pleased with all aspects of our stay. We highly recommend the Crowne Plaza to anyone.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 12th Floor Visitor Staff was Great - Hotel is Dated
I travel for work so I am comparing against 30-40 hotel visits annually all in a similar price range.
Parking - The hotel is inner city so parking challenges are to be expected. The parking is a block away. You have access via covered overpass. The valet was friendly and responsive.
Room - Dated and showed signs of wear. Wallpaper peeling, older AC/heating unit that could use a filter change. The room was clean and their were plenty of fresh linens and towels. I hate scrambling for the extra wash cloth or towel. Not an issue here. Appliances were new and quiet.
Amenities: The top floor had a nice dining area with a great view. Plenty of rooms for hospitality or meetings. Not much of a social area but we found a couple couches on the 1st floor and were able to hang out there and have a few without any hassle from the staff. Standard workout room and office area. Vending on our floor; however, limited to snacks. If you want a bottle of water you have to truck down to the lobby shop.
Service: Very good. Responsive and friendly in all aspects. Never even encountered the cleaning staff, but the room was clean and restocked when we returned in the afternoon.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DMSterling Good spot for downtown
If you've ever the need to be in Downtown Dayton, this place is right across the street from the Convention Center (and has a tunnel between). While I'd put it on par with most Crowne Plaza's, this one is great for location. Service was very good and the staff very helpful - van drivers picked me up at the Airport and ran me around town (good since I just don't have the winter clothes and we got about 4 inches while I was there). Rooms have been redone recently to match the new updates - though baths are on the small side (a little cozier than I like). The restaurant and bar were great - located on the top floor it offers a nice view around the city and a nice atmosphere. Well planned out, even when there was a fairly large gathering, the 'other' side of the bar was still pretty quiet and relaxing. This one also features a club floor (9th) - a VERY welcome amenity for us that travel a lot. Wine/beer/snacks 5:30 to 7:30pm, great breakfast in the morning.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Theo999 Incredible staff
Sarah at the front desk is amazing. I had a problem with the credit card that I was using and she was extremely helpful and patient while I worked through the issue.
The front desk was also curtious, and very helpful. You do have a stellar staff all around.
The morning breakfast staff was also amazing. Their level of service was above and beyond.
I forgot to mention at the front desk that the smoke alarm in room 711 was not attached to the wall. It was missing its hardware. You might want to check that. Also the toilet paper holder should be replaced. It didn't always hold the roll which meant that it hit the floor more often than not. The grout in the tub could use a little help

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Gogogo14 TV and refrigerator problems
The workers are excellent. Especially those in the restaurant. They are proactively engaging and I appreciate that. The TV had to be reset 2times during my stay, and the refrigerator froze everything. I put into it. That was very aggravating.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Thankful! Surprise Birthday Celebration
During our stay we celebrated the birth of the Matriarch of our family. I wanted to ensure we were available for last minute emergencies, surprises and to assist with set up. Our room was clean, comfortable and offered a great view from our floor. Bell crew were helpful with transporting materials and requests. Banquet staff were quite helpful with serving food, assisting family, and being patient during presentations. The presentation of the room was fabulous. Pretty decorations, good use of space and quality of food. We sincerely appreciate it. Only the best for her!!!

The elavators need some refinishing of the wood panels due to scuff marks and rough luggage handling. As a first impress in them it sets a bad example for an otherwise good experience.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BLA1234 Just Ok
I reserved a room with a king sized bed on a Wednesday night. I arrived after a long drive at 9pm, and was told there were no king sized beds left. How does that happen? They shouldn't let you reserve something they don't have. They offered me two queen beds for a reduction in price, which was a fine compromise, I suppose. But I don't understand what the point of reserving a particular room is when it's not available when you get there. Location was good and room was acceptable.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by bls116 Very noisey
We stayed one night at the Crown Plaza in Dayton for a wedding. The room was average as far as comfort. Upon returning from the wedding and going to bed around 11:00 pm our room was VERY NOISEY. We were all located on the 11th floor and the music from the lounge on the 13th floor was ridiculous. You could hear every word to the songs and the bass pounding and pounding. Somewhere around 1:30 AM you could then hear all the chairs scraping across the floor and the vaccum running as it was clear they were cleaning for the night. I did not call to report it because I knew what it was unlike getting a guest to quite down. I told the front desk at checkout and they apologized and said they don't put anyone on the 12th floor on the weekends for that reason. I told them they would not be getting a "10" from me and one clerk asked how they could make me happy. How do you get back a night's sleep. They should have offered some kind of credit back, but I wasn't going to ask for it. I was not the only room in our party to not sleep well that night. Also we had breakfast the next morning in the restaurant and although the waitress was very, very nice and accomodating it took FOREVER to get our food from the kitchen. Clearly there was not enough help. The quality of the food was not that great.

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

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.
