Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ExampleJackie27 Not Impressed
I stayed there on the night of March 25th so I could attend a one day seminar the next day which was conducted at one of the Crowne Plaza meeting rooms.
Issue 1: The food from the restaurant. I ordered a club sandwich after arriving at the hotel in the afternoon. After biting into it, I chomped down on a mysterious hard thing. I don't know what it was, but it was gross. Gristle? A seed? What would either of those be doing in a club sandwich? More quality control in the restaurant, please.
Issue 2: Room cleanliness. I found a hair in the sink (a rather long one) and also a couple of hairs in the bathtub. Unacceptable in my view. More quality control over cleaning staff needed here.
Issue 3: I stayed on the first floor and had shutters in my room in lieu of windows. Light from the parking lot brightly shown through all night. I don't think shutters in a hotel room are a very good idea unless they are specifically designed to keep out light. Perhaps the Crowne staff will find it necessary to hang curtains and drapes in their rooms like everybody else does.
Issue 4: Internet connection in my room did not work at all, or was way, way slow to the point of making me just give up. Could not check my work email.
Issue 5: There were literally about a thousand junior high school kids there participating in some sort of mock United Nations thing. They pranced up and down the halls knocking on doors, talking WAY too loudly, occasionally running and basically just engaging in garden variety mannerless rude kid rude behavior until about 11:30 at night. Obviously the parents didn't care and I don't exactly think the staff made appreciable efforts to keep them quiet, either. But really, there's only so much the staff can do about this. But, this review is about my overall experience so it's appropriate to mention here.
I won't stay there again unless made to by my boss.
This is the second time I wrote this review, Crowne did not post it the first time because I mentioned the superiority of their competition by name. I have not done that in this review, so to the Crowne staff I'd appreciate a little equity in that you should post my review just like you did everybody else’s. That's the least you can do given my less than stellar experience at your hotel.

I reserved a room and stayed at Crown Plaza so I could get a good night's rest for a one day seminar the following day. Upon checking in I was greeted with the surprise of 1000 middle schoolers staying there for there conference with a curfew of 11:00. Enough said!!! The bar was the only escape.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by rik0123 Really disappointing - noise control!!
This could have been a decent stay and we were really looking forward to it.
Pool area very nice and rooms were nice.
The main problem was with the lack of control and discipline over the supposed 1200 kids running wild with some convention (YMCA, staff told us). Really crazy and unbelievably loud. Running up and down the very noisy stairs...screaming in the rooms and hallways, banging on doors, adults adding to the noise, not reducing or controlling it.
Hotel staff was helpless... Really a shame. Not that the kids were there, but that there was little to no effective control and certainly a deep lack of respect for the rest of the people staying at the hotel.
I think the hotel staff was not so happy about this, either, but that should not be the problem of their guests. As a minimum, we should have been warned this was coming.
Restaurant service at night pretty weak, in the morning very good.
No recognition of priority status.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RADII A lot of problems at this hotel
Very slow checkin process.
WIFI is terrible very slow or never works.
noise of running water in rooms
telephones in rooms do not work
hot food on dinner buffet was cold
eggs on breakfast buffet were like soup
shuttle drivers have a negative attitude
many guests had similar complaints
sent letter to sales manager and got no response
over priced for what you receive
only good thing is location
A HOTEL TO AVOID IF POSSIBLE

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 MATTS STAY
I wish to state just a few things. Front desk needs a little fine tuning on who does what. When you call for getting the shuttle, I had it happen twice to get transferred to different people, just to let me know if the shuttle would be coming to the convention center. When you are there in person, they seem to be not a eye to eye contact . Always seems like your a burden when you ask them something.
Room was good. When you have a rollaway bed in a room with two beds already, I would think common sense would mean you would leave a pillow for it. As good people, we just took some from the main beds, but seemed very odd to do that. I have stayed at other motels for the same show, and never had that happen. Also, would suggest, that when you do this in reservations, to add more towels to cover the people staying there.
Restaurant was probally your best asset. We had a waitress named Toni that took care of us for the meals we ate there. Best service we had. We ate at the Crab shack and other locations, and your staff member out performed. Her hospitality made relaxing for a meal a home comfort so to speak. Please make sure she gets the pat on the back, as she represented your motel better than the clerks, cleaning staff, and shuttle drivers..Might I suggest make her part of HR as your motel needs some improvement.

I was awakened at 6:00AM by the noise of water/waste flowing in the a pipe in the wall between the bedroom and the bathroom. I assume it is drainage from the room above mine. I was on the ground floor. I also hear it in the evening.
I wil not stay thee again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tlbw31 Fantastic time!
We recently stayed at Crowne Plaze for my daughters birthday. We rented a suite for the party. Not only did our guests have a terrific time in the lovely, well equipped suite but the fact that all our guests (even the ones who were not overnight stayers) swam and were treated warmly and as though the hotel really cared about their comfort and enjoyment. The pool was clean and relaxing. The room was spotless and inviting. There were 2 bathrooms so guests didnt have to share one teeny one. There were 2 wet bars, 2 tvs, lots of seating space and we slept like babies. Everyone was comfortable and happy. We will 100% be staying again soon. If you have a large group, I recommend the suite over 2 small rooms. We had room for 6 to sleep as well as the comforts of home. Thank you Crowne Plaza!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by baba3 great place to stay
we stay here because of the sos show at the convention center, overall this is a great place to stay the rooms are big to make it roomy,,they are clean and comfortable.
having the restaurant in the building really helps.after doing a show you don't want to go out and search for a restaurant. so that is a connivence.
the one fault we have with this is the parking , there is not enough, you can have three stay to a room and they each get a parking space if they each drove, meanwhile someone gets left out to park way beyond,that is a bother to me since both hubby and i have a hard time walking to get to the hotel and yes handicap is always full
but will continue to stay there because i like it overall

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Elvislives12345 Front Desk
We stayed one night. There was Cheerleading competion going on that weekend. All night long we heard people laughing out loud and running up and down the hall on the first floor, This was not to far from the front desk. I told the person about this, when I checked out the next morning. She said I should have called the front desk. I told her I did not want to wake up any one in my room. I thought the front desk should listen for these things. Instead having a guest tell them. Also you should have a continenal breakfast. Thanks

Room gets a low rating because the internet didn't work right or not at all.
Staff gets a bad rating because they lied about the internet, we had several people staying there and all were told they were not having a problem with it we all knew better.

I enjoyed the room and bed. I did not like waiting 30 minutes to get served my meals at the restaurant. Free Breakfast or not the wait was too long. The front desk was very friendly and helpful. The shuttle service was excellent too. over all Good stay. Later descovered I could have been offered a daily news paper as a priority club member but was not asked or reminded.

Was a great overall experience. The staff made it tops as they were always polite and accomodating. Never a day went by without at least one of them greeting me or asking how everything was. This included the front desk staff, the housekeeping staff and the restaurant staff. This was my first trip to Lousiville and if I ever return the Crowne Plaza is where I want to stay!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by any1 Awlful room
Our room was on ground level which was good but had shutters on windows which let the lights from outside in parking area blast thru and the sounds from airplanes blast thru too. No sleep for us. Tryed to put towels over but didnt help. You def need to do something different. Should we stay there again or send someone there we will diff, inform to ask not to be in that area.

When we fly out of Louisville we stay and leave our car and they shuttle us to the airport, always great service!
We have been going to the New Year's Eve celebration for the past 12 years and always have a great time. The package is great and the service! The only I would ask is better pillows in the rooms.

My husband planned a wonderful New Years Eve party for the both of us. The food was delicious, casino was a little small but if you got there early like we did we had a great seat at the Rowlette wheel. Had a lot of fun gambling but not really losing any real money. We were seated with a lot of friendly people @ table #2. It was a Nice getaway for us!!!!!!!! Thanks and will be staying there in the future!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by USNDoc Nice rooms, staff not so much
The rooms are very nice and the hotel was quiet. I had no issues except a rather slow internet.
However, the attitude of staff was not acceptable. Even with only a few people waiting in line at the front desk, it seemed like it took forever. I am really used to faster service. Staff seemed rushed and not that willing to help. I asked for a non-connecting room and was told by the desk clerk that she "didn't have that information".. however the one right next to her did.... hmm...
At breakfast, the wait staff seemed completely unmotivated. I even didn't get a second pass by for coffee and there were only a few people in the restaurant.
I stayed here because I attended a conference. I doubt I would honestly stay here if I had not been.
