Very "meh"


19 November 2014


The hotel was not bad, but it was not good, either.

The staff wasn't outright rude, but they weren't particularly friendly and were very brusque and short.

The room had a slightly musty, bad smell. Not intolerable, but annoying.

The breakfast buffet was well stocked and tasty, but there were no plates to be had, and we had to specifically ask for someone to bring us plates. We also had to flag down a waiter to get more drinks.

The beds weren't totally uncomfortable, but they were kind of hard and sagging.

You'd normally expect better of a Crowne Plaza. This place isn't terrible, and I wouldn't tell people to shy away, but it's just not very good, either.

Good location to downtown


18 November 2014


The location of the hotel was ideal. I was there to attend a basketball game at the Toyota Center and it was very close. Other relevant stores and restaurants were also in close proximity.

Parking was only $9 per night which is cheaper than most of the hotels in the area; however, it I hadn't paid attention to the website then I would not have known about the parking fee. The parking fee was not told to me at check-in.

The front desk staff were friendly and greeted me with a smile; however, when I inquired about the approximate cost of taking a cab to the Toyota center vs. paying to park, I could not get an answer. I simply asked if anyone knew how much it might be to take a cab from the hotel to the Toyota Center and no one could give me a real answer.

The rooms were adequate and clean. The water pressure in the shower was very low though. And the walls are thin; I could hear children being loud in the room next door and outside at odd hours of the day and night.

Hello mbv81, Thank you for your feedback on your recent stay. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed our hotel and location. I apologize that the agent that you spoke with at the front desk was not able to answer your question about taxi fare. We do have a full time concierge that usually answers those kinds of questions but I will make sure that the front desk is knowledgeable on the area. Best Regards, Mandy Bates Crowne Plaza River Oaks

A bit dated...needs some exterior attention


13 November 2014


The hotel is a bit dated, and you can tell this is an older property. The grounds need some attention, and the parking garage is disgusting at best.

The A/C in the room worked great, which is important to know about in Houston. I live in the Mountains of New Mexico, so I like my room about 62 degrees at night, and the A/C was successful at that task.

Attention to cleanliness in the room was good, although some of the maintenance work that has been done over the years was a bit "shoddy" at best.

Shower heads were clogged up pretty well, but otherwise, the bathroom was fine.
