Nice place but don't expect a shower curtain


17 September 2014


Attractive facility but the bathroom didn't have a shower curtain. Four phone calls and a personal request to the desk over two days finally resulted shower curtain. I found a housekeeper and asked in Spanish for a curtain for the tub and she was immediately apologetic and helpful -- and quickly installed a shower curtain. I tipped her and thanked her.

She was far better in service than the personnel who were superior to her.

Great people, outdated facility


16 September 2014


Had great service, but there is not much to do in this hotel in terms of entrainment. Bar and Restaurant had good food and great people.

Rooms was average, mattress to soft, but everything was clean at least. Not an exciting place to be.

On the surface the hotel looks good, but look closer and you can see it has aged and is worn out. Need some serious attention.

Average at Best


16 September 2014


I remember when the Crowne Plaza was known for its luxury and finer accommodations. Seems like my recent stays have all been 'Average at Best' when staying at Crowne Plaza. Is it me or is it that this brand name is no longer living up to it's expectations?
