Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by nicolas75flyertalk Tiny rooms, dated hotel but great staff
King bed room on Executive level / high floor are really tiny (less than 28 sqm)
Armchair (the room is so small that it nearly touches the bed)
Television set with large selection of cable channels (but no international channels).
Very small bathroom with fridge like light and tiny bathtub. TempleSpa amenities. Damaged mirror and faucet.
View over Downtown's buildings
Partially renovated, but still feels dated.
Quiet from outside noise (but you can hear the elevators)
- Convenient location
- Very friendly staff
- Pleasant restaurant (good basic food, very fast service)
- Good breakfast
- Bar surprinsingly living in the evening
- Dated hotel
- Small rooms
Good value, but do not expect thrilling experience.
If you stay in Houston, do not miss the Ménil Collection, one of the world's best private contemporary art collections (and Renzo Piano's building is superb). The collection is less than 20 minutes walk from the hotel (you can also rent a bike at a shared bike station).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gweniemc Extremely comfortable bed, very clean, friendly staff
We have stayed at the Crowne Plaza many times.
We love the comfortabel bed, spacious room and we especially
enjoy the friendly, helpful staff.
It's always nice to have shuttle service to and from Minute Maid Park where we always go for Houston Astros baseball games.
We also like the room service avaible until midnight.

I am a frequent guest and have never had a bad stay in this hotel. The most important thing is the hospitality of the staff; they are all wonderful and work very hard to make your visit as great as possible. I recommend this hotel to anyone who in in the downtown Houston area for work or fun.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ExtendedFamily Excellent Service
Every staff member at this hotel goes above and beyond - from housekeeping (including turn down service) to the restaurant Team to the Front Desk Team to Security to the Managers and GM.
The service makes this hotel a wonderful place to stay - highly recommended in the Houston downtown area!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jlatsha thank you to staff
The room was fine, and the gym, although small, was well-equipped and clean even with headphones that actually worked in treadmills that also were in good condition. Didn't get to use any other amenities. Took the free shuttle to the ballgame, and there seemed to be a little confusion and waiting for that but I might be exaggerating because I was hungry and anxious. But other staff was great. I took the stairs to the gym and got turned around and wound up in some non-public space when a staff member very patiently led me where I needed to go, even though I'm not sure he knew either. I also left some paperwork in the room and the maids picked it up and did not discard it. Thank you! I really needed that paperwork - and it was sent fedex to me the minute I called to ask about it. Overall a really good stay - thanks!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by conferenceattendee13 Excellent, cozy place to stay during conferences
I loved staying here for the conference I went to recently... It is a nice hotel located not far from the conference center and just beyond the "hustle and bustle" of the mainstreet and downtown areas. Very nice, cozy, and quiet hotel. What really set them aside from other hotels I've stayed at was the friendliness of the staff and the service. Everyone here was incredibly nice, friendly, and accommodating. The only downside was that the room amenities and facilities were a tad out-of-date and in need of renovation; other than that everything was in working order. Definitely great value and I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Supreme1 Comfortable room and great service
I had an absolute ball during my two day stay. The staff were very professional and courteous. My room was very comfortable - I had everything I needed. The hotel was in a perfect location for me to navigate around Houston. I enjoyed the free gift that was left for me. I would not hesitate to stay at Crowne Plaza when I travel.
