Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 110040999 Good and clean.
The hotel is experiencing changes so it's kind of noise and the restaurant is very small for the breakfast and I got a room close to the emargency stairs, so, it's not the best room to be (even when I'm gold on Priority Club). But the room was always clean.

Couldn't believe you didn't have Telemundo or Univision channels when we are the biggest "minority" in this country. Shame on you. Also, two luggage movers was too little for the amount of guests. You need to post a sign on them that guests should not hog them until after they have finished checking in.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ABS25 Not a Crown Plaza experience
I stayed 6 nights. The check in started with a smile and complimentary drink coupons which were given because the hotel is going through a major refurbishment.
Unlike any other hotel I visit, including the ones of the Hilton chain (there I am Gold, here Platinum), I did not get the regular upgrade rather was placed on the PC floor, which supposed to be the same as other floors only quieter, and had no lounge access .
The room itself is OK with plenty of power sockets (which I crave for in so many hotels) however, no power socket is other than the American one. It would be great if around the work desk they placed a European/global socket.
Breakfast is quite good, with an omelette bar and fresh fruits and the rest of the standard hot breakfast items. The breakfast awarded to Platinum members is continental and for a full one you would have to pay.
There is an open pool which I did not try as it was a bit chilly for an outdoor swim, however the Gym was a favourite of mine. It has few aerobic devices (treadmills, elliptical and a bike) a set of dumbbells (up to 50 lb.), and one combination device. There are tiny towels, water and no mattresses (??). I was told that the Gym will probably be refurbished too although the modest size will remain the same.
They provided a small fridge for a fee of $10, which I did not care paying for but it seemed a bit petty to aske payment for. I also got a warning that since I sent a package to the hotel, on my name, that starting the 5th package they will charge me for it…
Since the hotel is under refurbishment, the breakfast room and bar are located at a horrible outdated room and the noise coming from the work being done ensures that a late morning sleep is not an option.
I would not recommend choosing this hotel before the refurbishment is completed (end of summer 2013) and hope that by the end of it, it will be more at par with other CP hotels around the world.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gp53 Our date night
We have date night on Fridays and quite often like to stay somewhere besides home.
When we stayed at the Crowne Plaza we were more then happy with our choice. The room was beautiful the servise was wonderful and the value was great.
We plan to make this our date night place to stay in the future.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 3142 Significant Construction Underway
Whilst I would normally recommend this hotel, have stayed at it many times, and find it convenient for business, I found the construction that is currently underway a significant inconvenience. The temporary bar and restaurant were not up to the standard that are normally provided, and indeed one normally expect at a business hotel.
I will go back, but will be careful to check the state of the refurbishment before making a reservation.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by nikkinel01 Noisy Construction, smelly rooms, and unfriendly help
Needless to say I was expecting great things from staying at a Crowne Plaza, I will never make that mistake again!! Construction on rooms is going on at the hotel on different rooms which is completely understandable and we were connected to a room that was having construction done which again understandable (if the hotel is full). However, we were not warned of the next door constructions and when the workers arrived at 8am to start drilling and hammering it made me jump from bed as it sounded like someone was breaking into my room. After settling back down from this abrubt awakening I noticed a strange odor in our room. This odor never went away (I am assuming it was from the construction next door) and became worse over our visit (5 days). Additionally, our ice machine was broken and even though the front desk was informed on multiple occasions, nothing was fixed.
As I stated earlier, I would not have been mad if the hotel was full and they stuck us next to a room under construction and we would have been forwarned. However, not only were there pleanty of rooms availabe on several floors, I later came to find out that someone was moved from our room (and comped for breakfast) an hour before because of the construction and smell and yet we were put right back into the same room with no warnning.
When I went to check out the next day I informed the front desk of all the issues we had and he proceeded to make me feel like it was my fault for staying in the room.
And as if that wasn't enough, there was a drink charge on my room for alcohol I never purchased. When I questioned the manager about this he said I tried to put it on someone else room and they changed it back because I was the only person with that last name in the hotel. When he showed me the reciept it was a different room number, same last name, and a males name. (I am female#. After being told I was trying to get out of it and arguing with him for 10 min he finally took the drinks off my bill. And there was another person with my last name in the hotel staying two doors down from me as he was part of our group #and he later told me the drinks were his and he didn't understand why they switched them to my room).
This was easily the worst experience I have ever had at a hotel. I am not big on writing reviews however I felt that this was necessary considering the experience I had. I would highly recommend finding a different hotel.
