Guest Reviews

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 284 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great for work and exercise My stay was overall above average. The room was comfortable and practical. The highlights were the quality of the bed, the size and cleanliness of the gym, and the reliable internet. Areas of improvement were the cleanliness of the bathroom (lots of hair) and the concierge service/knowledge at the front desk. Also, any kind of guide for the television would be appreciated. Overall this was a good, not great stay. October 7, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Baton Rouge Crowne Plaze For the status of a Crowne Plaze over a conventional Holiday Inn, if I stay in Baton Rouge again, I'll take the better hotel at the Holiday Inn. I might even drive to Kenner and stay at the Airport Crowne Plaza for a quieter night. October 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful stay! The renovations are great! Can't wait to see what you guys do to the concierge level. Mary Jane and her staff are the best of the best!! October 6, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LSU game weekend The location is not far from the stadium which makes it convenient and time saving. The staff was friendly and our room was very comfortable. There is a Mexican restaurant in the parking lot so you do not have to drive anywhere for a nice meal. Will stay here again in the future I'm sure. October 2, 2014

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice, comfortable, quiet rooms Just a comfortable feeling came over me once I entered my room. The decor was very pleasing. The bathroom was efficiently arranged, but I could have used more lighting there. The bed was comfortable; however, my rating was average for quality of sleep because I have back issues and only my sleep number bed provides the maximum comfort for me. September 20, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent All Around All pro's No con's I travel extensively in this country and to a lesser extend abroad. I can truly say that the entire staff of the Crowne Plaza, in Baton Rouge, LA, are the best that I have had the pleasure to come in contact with. From the desk clerk to the bellman, the reservation manager, the concierge, the restaurant, and bar employees, everyone does an excellent job to make my stay as pleasurable as possible. Could not ask for better. Thank you Crowne Plaza for all that you do. September 15, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Remod job Hotel interior being renovated. Almost complete. Nice job! September 2, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by job interview I wish I knew the property was under construction and that work started in the early am until 10pm. I was first put in a room directly above the construction. Upon returning from dinner at 8:45pm I called the front desk and requested a room change. They sent up a bel hop to help with the move. We were move to the 4th floor in a separate wing of the hotel. I had a good nights sleep but didn't understand why they were using rooms directly above active construction. The staff was very pleasant and efficient in correcting the situation. August 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Service Great service for a last minute reservation. Very accomodating and pet friendly! August 29, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Best Hotel Breakfast I stayed at this hotel for a week on business. Breakfast was the best hotel breakfast I have ever had. The rooms were clean and comfortable. I did not use the gym but it was very large and well equipped. August 25, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rocky Mountain Elkss Foundation Everything about our stay was just what we hoped for.. This visit from New Orleans was a fund raiser. When traveling in the near future, Crown Plaza will be on our agenda. We would highly recommend the C P to all my business associates, Although this was only an 80 mile trip , when we travel to other parts of the country C P will be on our list for our stays.. August 23, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great experience Although remodeling was in progress we had a great stay with great service from the staff. We had a dog and he also enjoyed the stay. Very friendly staff. August 23, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Remodel The rooms need new carpet and new air conditioners. There was a problem in two rooms with air conditioners. The carpet is worn and needs replacing. One room had a cigarette burn in the carpet. August 19, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Traffic noise created a problem for sleeping! The room was facing the highway and did not have the proper windows to keep the noise level down. As a result we left at around 2:30am. That is not good!! August 18, 2014
