Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Travelin' CEO Clean and comfortable with an excellent restaurant.
I've stayed here 4 weeks in a row and have been completely satisfied by the friendly and helpful staff. Barbara, a server in the restaurant, exudes a positive and uplifting attitude every day.
The chef prepares attractive dishes, each presented in an attractive and stylish fashion.

Lighting was like a cave in bathroom, very little and placed very low. Other than that all else was good.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by y0ug0n0w Welcome Train Enthusiast!!!
If you love the sound of freight-train rumbles, long whistle-blows, and train-brakes then this is the hotel for you. Several freight-trains (long and heavily-laden ones) pass this hotel daily (and nightly). The train-tracks are within feet of the building and run the entire length. If you do not fall into this category consider an alternate location or ask for a room that is opposite the tracks and on a higher floor - this might help.
Do not take this review incorrectly - please - this hotel is well appointed, cute, and without the trains would be a place I would return to. Given that I like trains but not when they seem to run through my hotel-room I am not likely to return to this particular location for a night's sleep.

I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. Simply put, my husband and I had the most wonderful stay, and we did not want to leave! I've never experienced a more friendly staff, and the surroundings are simply enchanting. Kudos, Crowne Plaza, for the job you're doing!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bahrainjude Wonderful Hotel, great location and great service
Upon arrival I was greeted warmly by the staff. The luggage service was excellent. The staff was very knowledgeable about the area and sights to visit. Directions with a map were provided. The lobby seating area was very comfortable and large. The character of the former Train station had been kept. The location in the historic district made it accessible to a variety of things to do. It is also convenient to the beach. The bar was lovely and very comfortable. The service was excellent. We were made to feel right at home. I will return.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CEB1 Great time during our stay for wedding
Staff friendly, informative and attentive to needs. We asked for a room away from the noise of the trains and in room party people. We were pleasantly accommodated. Nice piece of history attached to the hotel - ask if you are interested. We came for a wedding and were able to spend time reconnecting in many comfortable common areas of the hotel. Would definitely stay again if we were to visit Pensacola in the future.

Our stay was relaxed and enjoyable. The proximity to the ocean, Gulf Breeze Bridge, great dining (The Fish House - recommended by staff) exceeded our needs. The hotel rates were great for the location and comfort.
The hotel parking is a little weird due to the fact that the property was once a railroad station.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cgar103150 THANKS
We stay here during an emergency health issue at Sacred Heart Hospital. The hotel was in a good location to the hospital. It was clean and comfortable. Plus they gave our son a medical discount which was very much appreciated. By the end of our stay the staff was very concerned and went out of their way to inquire about us and helped in any way they could. It is highly probable we will be returning in a few weeks and will definitely stay again. I recommend this hotel to any one who is looking for comfortable hotel in a great location in downtown Pensacola. Right off the highway. Easy to find. Internet is free and fast. TV good but without pay per view. Food good. Bar is excellent with great service. I would recommend asking for a higher floor if noise is a problem and not a room next to the railroad tracks....that was a bit noisy but my grandchild loved watching it from the 6th floor.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Andy 55 Poor experience and a lousy value
The workout facility was poor. Both treadmills were defective, room not particularly clean. We had AC problems in both rooms. Ice machine was out of service on the second floor for our entire stay. Staff was essentially non responsive or helpful with any resolution. We checked out earlier than planned...rooms were above 80 degrees!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kaptain Kirk Dirty and rude
I can't believe this hotel makes the claims it makes and charges as much as it does. It's supposed to be one of the nicer hotels, and it fell far short of that.
For some reason, check in took nearly 20 minutes. Not in line, at the counter. They kept saying sorry for the wait, but never fully described what the problem was.
After getting into the room, I noticed one of the pillow cases had a large brown stain on it. Which wouldn't have been too big a deal, except when I called the front desk, I was told it would be changed when they could "get around to it". After finding a towel that was also dirty and about an hour later, I had to walk both items to the front desk myself. There was no apology from anyone. Just a "here's your towel".
I booked this room as part of a block of rooms for my 20 year high school reunion. I'm including that info because what ensued later in the evening was completely unjustified. After the evenings events, I was accompanied by four old friends back to my room. After approximately 15 minutes, we had a knock on the door. It was security saying there was a noise complaint and this had better be they're only warning. I apologized and expressed my concern that the walls must be paper thin. After all, we're not kids unaware of our decibel levels. However, I explained my friends were leaving shortly and we'd keep it down. 10 minutes later, right as my friends were getting up to leave, I received another knock on the door. I answered to the same younger security guard telling me this time that I was to be "evicted". I pleaded my case explaining that my friends would leave with them and I would go directly to bed. He looked to the other older security guard for a response to which he said "It's your call". That's when he then told me that I had to leave.
We were not doing anything illegal. We were not "partying". We were not rude to the security officers. Yet, I was still told I had to leave for being "too loud".
I've stayed in numerous hotels and been involved with some debaucherous activities and never been kicked out. This was not even close to one of those times, yet I was asked to leave.
The decision came down to an eager young security guard to flex what little authority he has.
The next day, when I spoke with management, they said I would still be charged for my room. They were told I was warned of being evicted, which was not true. Not once did I get upset with anyone, even though most people would have. I feel I was mistreated and will never waist my money on a crowne plaza hotel again.

If you stay in this hotel, and you are a responsible adult, your experience will be flawless. That is, unless you are mistaken for a rowdy crowd of college kids.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bywaterbrewery Not bad if you can't be on the beach
I love the location, quite near to old town/downtown. Quiet, even if our room was directly across from the elevator; didn't hear anything. The pool could use some shade, such as umbrellas or awnings, as it was quite hot and boiling. Breakfast service was quite slow, as they were shorthanded. Otherwise, just what we expected, and we really loved the renovated old train depot. Neat!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Joe B C Nice folks, older property, near to railroad and traffic
We usually stay on Pensacola Beach, This hotel has decent drive time to the beach and this hotel has easy access to great dining and to downtown. The staff is personable and excellent. The rooms were decent but very noise ridden due to traffic noise and the train traffic that comes right by/next to the hotel with whistles blowing into late evening and again beginning in early morning. The fitness center is old and minimal which was a great disappointment. We stayed in a suite which was decent but which had a second floor with a circular stairway but no elevator to that upper (bedroom) floor. So you have to drag your stuff up and down. The bed and pillows were comfortable. We did not use the eating facilities as there were many great restaurants nearby.
We will probably use this property again.

The hotel is located in downtown Pensacola, FL, which is convenient for whatever you would like to do. The beach is 15 mins away. There are great seafood restaurants nearby. Customer service was great!

We enjoyed the historical setting of the former L and N Train Station. Also staff were very friendly and helpful. While this hotel is not on the beach, it is minutes from the bridge to Gulf Breeze while also having quick access to Pensacola's restaurant and shopping district, the marina and Seville Quarter. Very good value. We will stay here again.
