Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Canadian2000 Noisy Room
This was the second time I was in this hotel. The first one was a good experience, but this one was awful. The room had so many noises I could hardly sleep! There was noise coming from the bathroom (the fan), and from the fridge, and I could not sleep at all.
I did not have the time to talk to anyone because I was very busy there.

I loved it there. I did not pay for my hotel stay so I don't know how it is price-wise compared to other hotels. But the services were excellent.

I enjoyed my stay for a training for my new career. The staff were very nice and hospitable. It was quite in the rooms and the rooms were roomy enough to stretch out in. I will go back again on my next visit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fatherofthebride13 Wedding guests were well accommodated!
Both the bride and groom's families and friends were well cared for and experienced a very pleasant stay at this Crowne Plaza. Friendly front desk staff, gracious wait staff in the dining room, and excellent care by room service combined to make our wedding weekend memorable and enjoyable. As the bride's parents, my wife and I hosted family and friends in 5 other rooms, and everyone mentioned what a wonderful experience they had. Our thanks to this Crowne Plaza for a weekend to remember!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Michael0815 Poor WIFI/Internet, old infrastructure, friendly staff
I stayed several times at this location and need to say that the staff is really customer oriented and friendly and helpful. IHG Rewards recognition is very well.
Biggest challenge is the Infrastructure and here big bucks need to be invested. The WIFI simply does not work, interrupts all the time and then you need to log in again. Un-usable, especially when the hotel is not half-empty. Landline connection did not work either and I called the front desk. They said they will call Engineering, but nothing happened. Result was that I could finish my work because of the lack of Internet connection. This is not acceptable and in the future I will be forced to stay somewhere else in the area and use this just as a back up hotel because I need to stay online and productive. It's a pitty for the friendly and courtageous staff and their efforts, which I will miss.
And the bathrooms need to be up-dated. They are from the Sixties/Seventies and even sometimes the water stopps running!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Barefoot48 Great hospitality,great service!
I have stayed at this hotel several times over the years and saw a great improvement! I come on business and don't really like the upstairs ballroom because of the access and low ceilings. On another note, the rooms that have been renovated are excellent and I enjoyed my space while there for 4 nights. The front desk staff were excellent in service and the food in the hotel was pretty good. there are lots of things to do and places to go close by and they provide a suttle. I enjoyed my stay!

Staff very friendly, and went above and beyond my needs.
King Beds with Sleep number mattress, my first time on the sleep number mattress...excellent. Room Service food was fantastic...the deluxe 14" pizza must have weighed in at 15 lbs.
great outdoor pool....and patio area...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tracys0926 Great service, food, staff, etc
Was sent to this location for a 2 week class. I have traveled a lot in the past and stayed in numerous hotels for weeks at a time. This was a nice surprise as I was not familiar with the Crowne Plaza or the area. Shuttles to and from class each day were good (back from class one driver would smoke in the little van before he picked us up and you could smell it) Shuttles if you wanted to go to store or dinner, etc were smooth. Resturant/Bar staff were great, always good attitude and the food at this location was wonderful! I did not eat out as I found no need to leave since the food and service were so good here. I had one small issue I addressed with the front desk and manager, they addressed it quickly and resolved. Busy busy location during the weeks, weekends were much quieter which made relaxing by the pool or eating outside very nice! Weather this time of year was great too!

All of the staff were great. The breakfast was great. I did have problems with the bed. It would be good to give instructions for the sleep number bed and have it on a card in the room

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SimJim Terrible Internet
Stay here one week a year on business. Do not remember having internet connection problems in the past, but this trip it was terrible. Business colleagues staying in rooms in other parts of the hotel had similar problems. I strongly urge this property to upgrade internet service. Business travelers shouldn't stay here until they do. Everything else was good to excellent.

I stayed at the Crown Plaza for a Seminar and enjoyed my stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful as well as very accomodating. The rooms are spacious and Clean. The fridge allowed us to store some groceries. The hotel shuttle allowed us to get to the grocery store easily. I will stay there again. Thank you!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sleptsogood The Best Bed In The World
I have a trouble getting a good night's sleep; my husband has had Five (5) strokes and so I usually wake up with a back ache, but not the night I slept in the Bed at the Crowne Plaza in Northbrook.
I eaten at the Crowne Plaza before and have been at conferences at the Crowne Plaza but never slept at either. Maybe I can get away and sleep there for a treat. I cannot thank you enough for the sleep experience. My husband being ill it is very hard and means that I do not have funds to do something like this, it was our 38th wedding anniversary so we were treated to this, also a friend had their wedding reception there.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 Lacking in the little things that count
I wanted to give this hotel a better rating, but it's the little things that count (in addition to the main things# where I was very much disappointed.
Here are my gripes:
1# The toilet tissue is the absolute cheapest, roughest, paper obtainable. Be sure to bring your own Charmin or whatever you prefer. Ridiculously bad.
2# There is no light immediately when you enter the room, to light up the entry foyer and the closet where you hang your clothes. The bathroom light does nothing to light up this area. You cannot see which color shirt you are taking out of the closet because there is no light at all shining here.
3) Furthermore, the light switch on the wall, when you initially walk in, lights a lamp clear on the other side of the room, on a desk near the window. If this light switch is OFF, then nothing plugged into the lamp outlets will work. So, you must keep this switch at the entry of the room ON, and turn the lamp off manually from the desk. Well, now your room is in complete darkness when you come in at night, and you must walk in darkness to the desk on the other side of the room to turn on the light, feeling for the switch in darkness.
Worst part: Because the room is in complete darkness due to the bad design of how this room is not lit up, I walked into the piece of furniture that supports the TV, and the corner of that furniture at shoulder height, with the sharpest corners #not rounded) went straight into my shoulder and the pain was excruciating. This happened twice! I'm still in pain and bruised.
This tall piece of furniture is right in front of the walkway coming into the room, so you have to jut to the side to avoid walking into it. When the room is pitch black #due to the lighting problem I described above) you too can get hurt really badly.
4) The hotel restaurant leaves very much to be desired. I had the angus burger which was awful. The sauteed onions were horrible. The BBQ sauce I asked for was not good, either. The prices on the sandwiches were fine, but when you get into the entrees, prices get steep fast.
5) The King size bed was not comfortable. But this is very subjective. So who knows. I had horrible time sleeping the 4 nights I was here. The pillows are not puffy, but the kind of things you can form into any shape you want.
The staff were great, the people who make up the rooms and clean, quite good and friendly. The hotel is kept very clean. The ammenities in the bathroom #hair dryer, pull out mirror, sink and shower with good water pressure), all very good.

This hotel was not up to the level of other IHG hotels. Check in was very slow, no Internet service, and the TV would not stay on. The vents were dirty and no fan in the bathroom. We will never stay there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bruce2 Managment and Staff service and attitude ensured a wonderful stay!
Alma, a manager, went above and beyond to make sure my stay was fantastic! My room, the partner indoor pool, restaurant and all staff were excellent. While I have stayed in just as nice accommodations, Alma and all staff that I encountered had very bright and positive attitudes that ensured a wonderful stay. In particular, Alma as manager didn't hesitate to go above and beyond in terms of service - so it is not surprising that her great attitude rubs off. Don't hesitate to stay here - you will have a great stay!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Annie1260 PROM NIGHT!!! SLEEPLESS NIGHT!!!
Up until this night this was our favorite place to stay. It was prom night and there were highschool kids there being loud, boystrous, and in and out of their room roaming the halls till 3 AM in the morning! We couldn't sleep with all the racket going on in the halls, doors slamming constantly, kids talking, screaming and laughing loudly. They had no respect for the other occupants on the floor who were trying to sleep. Security tried to get them to be quiet but shortly after security left they were at it again. I finally gave up calling for security after the 3rd time. I hope next year they make sure they know what dates are prom nights for the local schools and figure out a way to screen the reservations for prom kids and put them all on the same floor. Keep them far away from the regular members who stay on a weekly basis. They should also have more security on hand for that day to help keep them quiet. The staff did their best but couldn't stop the teenagers from disturbing the other guests in the hotel.
