Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 267 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mrs. K We have stayed at this hotel previously as well. The quality of our room was one of the best we have ever had. The staff is always friendly November 8, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Business Visit Hotel location was good for our purpose we booked 5 rooms for our party. Hotel is now a bit dated and in need of some modernisation for todays market. Rooms tended to be a bit noisy due to being located next to motorway interchange. Food options very basic for us. Staff friendly and accomodating November 6, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by intense road noise The road noise was off the charts. Bed was comfortable, but could not sleep from the road noise. November 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great rooms and beds Was in town for business and stayed at this Crowne Plaza. It was slightly out of the way but the price was good and the rooms were very spacious and comfortable. Would stay again when i'm back in town. November 4, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Over billed My hotel room was not completely cleaned. Also I was out most of the day and before I left went told the staff to have my room cleaned which never happened. I was over billed for my stay and have called the hotel 3 times to still have not been to connect with the billing department. Please have someone call me back. Thank you. November 3, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Just What I Needed The room is comfortable, the valet's are pleasant and the front desk were kind and courteous. I have stayed here 3 other times before signing up for the rewards program. I will stay here again. I will not do the breakfast buffet. I am glad it was complimentary as I would not have been happy if I had to pay for it. I came down expectaing to get an omelete as I don't eat pork. I would have had to pay for that ($12# out of pocket or eat the buffet #$14) which only had scrambled eggs, pork, and pastries and a tiny section of fruit. I passed and had a cup of coffee instead. November 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Spacious room and nice view I stayed at Crowne Plaza Hotel Orlando-Downtown because it cost less than the other hotels around it; but to surprise I got a very spacious room, including full kitchen, a working station/ desk with a very comfortable office chair, big bed and a bathroom with full amenities. There was a bath-tub besides a shower (with different shower heads). A safety box and a big TV were also provided. The bed was very comfortable with big and soft pillows and an aromatherapy kit was provided. The view was very scenic from my window as it was overlooking the lake. It just exceeded my expectation and was an unforgettable experience. I have also enjoyed swimming in the outdoor pool. I only wished that the pool was heated as the water was a bit cold but I was happy to be able to swim outdoor considering it was the month of October where most outdoor swimming pools are closed in other more northern states than Florida! I will definitely go back to this hotel at my next visit to the area! November 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Overall Great Experience My stay at the Crowne Plaza Downtown Orlando was GREAT!! The room was extremely spacious and clean. Being that I was there for an entire week, the room was large enough to feel like I was at home and not so much like a hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful throughout my entire stay. I highly recommend this hotel and plan to stay here on my future trips to Orlando. November 2, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great location; Above Average Room I always liked the Crowne Plaza hotels for their above average room, furniture and ammenities. This location is average for its visual appeal and ammenities. The parking lot is small, and not well designed for guests; wiht multiple dead end aisles, require driver to back up. October 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Overnight stay The suite was a great room. Friendly staff. I would avoid the breakfast. October 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Room Renovations and Layout I was upgraded to a suite, which had granite countertops, tile floor, separate shower from bath tub, kitchenette and accurate digital thermostat. Great room accommodations for this level of hotel. It had a completely separate living room from bedroom, along with comfortable desk and chair for business and a full sectional for entertaining guests. October 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Would Recommend Very nice hotel, but a little noisey with outside traffic October 27, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable, Relaxing, Clean I have stayed at this location 3 different nights. Customer Service is excellent. Rooms are spacious, well equipped, clean. Location is easy to spot, but the first time is a little confusing. Food is great. Pool is lovely. October 27, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable room, but issues I have stayed at this property numerous times. Being a sound sleeper the interstate noise and occasional train horn doesn't bother me. I feel the self parking ($15# is very expensive seeing how it's 25 feet from the entrance. The real problem was at breakfast. I did not want a very basic buffet for $16.00. I ordered off the menu, eggs benedict, my favorite. I was looked at a little odd when I ordered, my first hint. A few minutes later the waitress comes over and says "it will take awhile for your order, maybe 20 minutes." I said that's fine, I'll read the paper. About 15 minutes later the person who says he's the cook came out and said I am so sorry we can't make your order we don't have any eggs???? I thought I was on Candid Camera. He politely said I could have anything else, everything required eggs?? He said I could have the buffet. He also offered free lunch, which was not of interest as I would be out on business. Less than one minute later I hear the waitress tell another customer her "egg over lightly will be right out". She must have got the last egg. October 26, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Room and Nice Hotel This was a very nice stay but wish i had better control over the AC. October 24, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by It's Downtown, so Expect Noise Stayed here for two nights while visiting family in the area. Thumps up for Abigail and her nice smile and service. Thumbs down to the "Bite" restaurant, breakfast ends at 10:00, not 9:45- so keep the buffet warm. Thanks to the waitress who brought me cooked eggs from the kitchen. The rooms are a decent size. According to the front desk, you are going to hear traffic noise regardless of whee your room is located in the hotel. Saving grace on traffic, the mooring rush-hour slows down the traffic and reduces the noise. Good location for some fun bars and there is a lake around the corner. Some construction at the hotel, but that appeared to be maintenance. There is construction next to the hotel, but it's not too disturbing. For the price, I made it work for me. $15 bucks a night for self-parking, so look for a rate that covers parking. October 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great overall great overall hotel in downtown Orlando. Nice 3mile area shuttle. Room was comfortable however kitchenette had no dishes or silverware. October 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great location and comfort in Downtown Orlando The Crowne Plaza in downtown Orlando provides great access to all downtown locales and the interstate. During our stay we used the fitness room, pool area, dined for breakfast in the restaurant and enjoyed cocktails in the bar. All areas were clean and well staffed. As IHG members we were given a very nice cocktail reception one of the nights there and were able to connect with several other members who frequent this hotel when in town. The only disappointment I had was that when I requested a bell hop to help with luggage no one ever arrived and I had to take everything down by myself. Would still recommend as a great value and comfortable stay. October 21, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Restaurant/Bar Below Expectations Restaurant/Bar needs a total make over. Food was worse restaurant experience in recent memory for all three of use. Fries were prepared in oil that should have been tossed weeks ago. Grilled chicken breast was tough, fish and chips turned out to be fried fish sticks, calamari appetizer did not resemble calamari, cocktails were $10 in a very small glass. October 21, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Value Surprisingly pleasant stay for the price. Great accommodations. Restaurant staff seemed under-staffed for duties required (simultaneously providing room service and dining room service). October 20, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible Stay Rooms Were not clean and had to change twice. No smoking floors were abused by smokers and when I complained I was asked to move again. The front desk staff was not apologetic about the problem. I will not stay at this property again, October 19, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Friendly service and great bathroom/bed I was greeted promptly upon my arrival here, and at every point of contact with the staff (from the lounge to the restaurant to the front desk) people were attentive to my needs. The air conditioning was top notch as was the bed and shower. I would definitely stay here again. October 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good location easy to get to downtown and interstate, I chose this location often October 15, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by restaurant Was disappointed when they didn't have the staff in the restaurant to accommodate the folks they had. After all they were a host hotel had to wait for a table when you had plenty of empty tables that needed to be clean. The hostess was not helpful...she could have cleaned the tables but did nothing. I would have rated this hotel higher if not for the service of the restaurant. October 15, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Older hotel but clean For the money charged it was not a great room, the carpeting was burned, no closet and no towel rack. . October 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Service and Great Property Loved the staff and facility. I am most impressed with all my dealings with staff. They are beyond professional. October 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome Service and Amazing Rooms Crowne Plaza is one of the most welcoming hotels experience I've received. The friendly courtesy staff make sure that your stay is comfortable and stress free. Where ever there's a Crowne Plaza I will make it my choice of stay. October 14, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Very Loud Outside Noise Hope you are dead tired and a heavy sleeper. The noise from the freeway and railroad tracks next to the hotel made for quite a lot of noise. The property should consider better windows to deaden the sound. October 10, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Service in restaurant Everything about the stay was very good except for the service in the restaurant. We waited for 45 minutes to get our food after ordering. The server only passed by the table one time and said our food would be out in a minute but it took another 15 minutes to get the soup. The soup was seasoned so strongly I had to send it back. I asked the server to check in the kitchen to see if the rest of our food was ready, and if not, we did not want to wait for the rest of it. She gave an excuse that they were doing their best. She came back out with the food immediately which makes me think it had been ready and under the warmer for some time. When she brought the bill, I told her we were not happy with the time it took and that she could have kept us advised about the progress of the food being ready and as she walked away from the table she made a comment to the effect" that she did tell us, which she did not do . October 10, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Just Ok It was a great location to a venue were visiting for the night. I got the suite which had two separate a/c units and the one in the bedroom did not blow cold air. The room service which as expected to take 30 minutes actually took 90 minutes and is extremely overpriced. The parking is also pricey. Overall I might give this place another shot but I would rather try somewhere else. October 9, 2014
