Hello! I was actually at this very hotel last weekend (July 19-21) for Pokecon! This was my first time staying in a hotel for a convention and overall I thought it went well.
We had gotten to the hotel at about 11:30 and signed in once we walked into the doors. Unfortunately, we had to wait 4-5 hours to get our room prepared. Still, Pokecon distracted us long enough so it wasn't too bad. Friends of ours already had their room ready when we got there so we ended up setting our stuff in their room because it was too hot outside to sit at my car. As for the appearance of the hotel, it looks amazing both inside and out. Not to mention that it was a somewhat comfortable environment to wander around in.
The bed was so comfortable I didn't even want to get up in the morning. Also the A/C was lovely especially with it being so hot outside. However, I recommend updating your map around the hotel because my boyfriend and I wondered around outside trying to follow it. None of the locations on the map are accurate which was really annoying. We ended up having to order pizza from Papa Johns. Thank goodness for deliveries! The bathroom was fairly well and pretty much the entire room was lovely. We had a king-sized bed with such a large living space. No noisy neighbors! Though it was a little weird to walk out of our room and a bottle of beer was sitting on the A/C.
Well, every interaction I had with the staff was fair. They treated us like guests, which is always nice. I especially appreciated it when we ordered room service in the morning and the nice man who brought us our breakfast let us know about the breakfast buffet they were having the morning after. If we didn't know, we probably would have starved on the way out of Louisville.
I thank you for giving us such a lovely stay at your hotel. Other than being treated rudely by others staying at the hotel for being con goers, it was pleasant.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ndfan13 Outdated and disappointed
The room I had was outed. The carpet was dirty. The furniture was old and straight out of the 70's. TV barely worked and the Wifi was substandard. This is not what I would expect a Crowne Plaza to be at all. Maybe an old Holiday Inn would better describe this place.
It's worn out.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mossUK Excellent customer service
I needed a room to wait for my son who was coming in on a flight that evening. I called a bunch of the hotels near the Louisville airport and chose the Crowne Plaze because of the very kind and helpful woman who answered the phone. She helped me look at what other rooms were available in the area and I thought that was such good service that I chose the Crowne Plaza. During the evening I had to run out to the drug store and got completely lost on my way back, not being familiar with Louisville at all and literally being in the dark. I called the front desk and they helped me navigate back to the hotel! They completely saved me from what could have been a terrible experience. I am very grateful for the professionalism and courtesy of the Crowne Plaza staff. Besides the great customer service, the rooms were great, the pilows were wonderful, the bath products were heavenly and the pool was very pretty. And the airport shuttle collected my son and delivered him to the hotel for me, so that was very convenient. I am a huge fan and will be a repeat customer.

When I booked the room it said free breakfast but when I got there they did not have free breakfast, no fridge in the room and no laundry! I was suppose to stay 2 weeks but couldn't because they didn't have the stuff I needed and wanted. I had to switch hotels

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by garlic1 Quiet, clean and comfortable room.
First time staying at the Crowne Plaza Louisville Airport. Extremely satisified with ambience, staff, room comfort and cleanliness. The only dissatisfaction experienced during our 5-night stay, was our room keys would quit working. We had to get new room keys at least three times throughout the week. Perhaps a faulty batch of room keys? Regardless, we will definitely come back here for our next trip to Louisville, KY.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by GBrum Nice and comfortable
We enjoyed our stay except for the room service and dinning room hours. It is advertised that in room dinning is open from 11am-11pm this is false and should be corrected. The room service charges are crazy. Add 20% plus 2.95 and it does not include gratuity. This is way over priced.
Kim at the front desk was fantastic and the other staff were very friendly. We enjoyed the pool and the area. We will stay again.

Horrible experience. Room was big but that's about it. Old furniture, very dirty , sleeper sofa not for use but if you like to sleep on springs...it's perfect . Very loud at night . Asked for extra bath towels..got it one hour later ..hand towels !!!! Bartender at the lobby bar very unpleasent..asked for glass of white wine , he said taht he's not going to open one for me because they closing in 10 minutes.. fine.. People at front desk realy didn't care if you are IHG Rewards Club Member...just "live me alone" attitude .. well, weather was nice for a change..we got some sunshine outside because inside was really cloudy and unpleasant ...provided by Crowne Plaza Hotel in Louisville . Thank you ..will not be back .

As always Crowne Plaza hotel and staff were great. What bothered me is I bring children with me and if I am very tired I sleep soundly. The secrurity latch above the door handle was gone and all that was there were the three holes. That is normally my comfort that I will hear someone trying to get in before they can do so and do harm to one of the children.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JJ0630 Extremely loud A/C unit
This hotel was impossible to get a good's night sleep. I am not sure even ear plugs would drown out the sound that the fan made when the air conditioning unit kicked on. I had read other reviews complain about the same issue and I should have booked somewhere else. It sounded like a helicopter landing in my room every time the unit's fan kicked on.

My stay was excellent in that the room was fresh and clean. The staff seemed to go out of their way to make me feel at home. I would recommend the Crowne Plaza to all, for their business and pleasure needs. Only a few minutes from the airport and a direct route to downtown Louisville.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EricInMo Great and comfortable stay
My room was huge, especially considering it was just me staying there. Maybe it's my membership in Priority Club but I definitely was staying in an upgraded room. It was on the 7th floor and I had a distant view of Churchill Downs and Six Flags. While I could see planes passing by outside, the noise levels were minimal and never once interrupted my sleep. Everything was spotless and I will be hoping I get to stay in the same room should I ever go back (I’d tell you the number but can’t risk you stealing it if I’m there at the same time#.
The only cons I could come up with were the noise of the AC and the shower. The AC can be a bit startling when it first comes on, especially on warm days when it's hard at work. In the bathroom, the shower took a few attempts to get going on my second night there. When I pulled up on the nob on top of the faucet, nothing happened. Some patience and a few more attempts eventually proved to be key.
Plain and simple, it needs a remodel and maybe needs to figure out what image it wants to portray. Don't get me wrong, it's a very nice and clean property and you'll feel comfortable staying there. It just feels like it was great when it first opened and no one ever bothered to update it.
Great food, staff and prices. I didn't spend more time there than to eat and run but absolutely no complaints. I also didn't explore the area around the hotel for any other options #although it didn't look like there were many others) and I really didn't need to.
They accommodated my request for an early check-in, as well as a room on a high floor, and were just generally friendly and helpful all around. The front desk and bellman always set the tone of my stays and these were all better than I had hoped for.
Easy to spot and easy to get to if you're driving. If you don't have a car, they have shuttles that seem to run fairly regularly from the airport and with a $9.99 minimum for a cab, the shuttle is worth the wait.
My criticisms of the hotel are really negligible and I hope they don’t deter anyone from staying there as I would absolutely recommend you do if you’re in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sfeb location of rooms
We were there for a conference and the only thing I wish I could have changed was the location of the rooms. The hospitality rooms were at one end of the hotel and the rooms were a 'hike' from them. The rooms we booked were from blocked for the conference. When there is a conference blocked why aren't all the rooms blocked close together? Our experience with the hotel and all areas of comfort were great! Right off the expressway and close to the airport. Thanks for the cleanliness.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Rjader Property Damage
My car was hit and whomever hit it did not leave any contact information. Security was called, pictures were taken, and a report was made. After 72 hours, I called the number they gave me, and they could only send me the report. There was no mention of reviewing the cameras. I called back the next day and then they sai. the camera angles were such that it did not lend them in seeing who hit my car. The lady also said there are signs posted everywhere stating that the hotel was not responsible for damage to personal property. So, now I'm paying for the damage to my car. I was parked right out front, in the circle. I guess there are no cameras out front? Really? I am not happy. Watch where you park and car owners beware!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Chavez61 A bit disappointed
I have stayed at this property four times hoping it will be a better experience. Each time they have put me in a room near the vending machines, on the side of the building next to the airport runway, or next to the elevator. The air conditioner did not work during my last stay and there was a water leak in the wall.
I really like the property an wish they could place me in a room that is a bit more quiet so I can get some rest. The front desk folks that I dealt with were not very welcoming.
The restaraunt employees are outstanding.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Vinylslinger Very Unexpected!
I had stayed at this hotel 15 years ago when it was named something else. It used to be a dump. Great Bones but desperately needed a renovation. When I stayed a few weeks ago for Vinyl Fest, I was blown away by how much had been done to the entire facility. Being part of the convention, we used all of the hotel. From the awesome pool to the Banquet rooms, they have friendly staff there to help you find anything. A big plus is the life guard at the pool. How can you possibly tell your children not to go swimming? The beds and room were very comfortable and all this for around a hundred dollar bill. This is the only place I stay when I'm in Louisville.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by docsb Comfortable bed and average service
The renovated rooms are good with comfortable bed. The UPS planes taking off from the airport after midnight make sure the we do not get a good night sleep.
The restaurant service is average at best and expensive for the quality and service provided. The room service provided by them was disappointing.

The staff are very pleasant and work with you if need be.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ellie1 A great place to stay
After staying at a few hotels this year, this was by far my favorite!
I asked for a quiet floor and got just that. Two things stood out to me: 1) The pool. What a treat. Loved the indoor/outdoor pool space and that there was a life guard on duty. The pool is quite large for a hotel. If you need to just get away for a while on a mini vacation, this will do it. 2) The little coffee shop/snack shop. It was run by a very nice, friendly person. Good coffee. Got a lovely fresh fruit plate for a great price. Thank you for the stay!

we had room 193 and we loved it cause it was extra roomy and it had a refrigerator. This was a big help to us! It would be nice to have microwaves for heating up food when you cant afford to eat out all weekend! BUt the bed was very comfortable and service was great. When we needed a set of wire cutters to clip off a needle that was stuck in my daughters pageant dress, we went to the front desk and they had some there in 5 minutes! We didnt know what we were gonna do and you guys came through for us! Love your hotel. 2 years in a row for us! We will be back!

Excellent location nearby airport with good food and nice rooms. The downside was that the elevators closest to the lobby kept conking out and we were on the 6th floor which caused quite a hike up the stairs or a long walk around to the other elevators with a long wait there.
