The meeting space is great, food was good and guest rooms adequate. The hotel seemed very short staffed. Common areas are dirty. Lint was on the floor though my entire stay and the elevators were filthy, especially in the conference area. The stairway railing were full of dust. They served coffee in paper cups at breakfast. I would expect glassware...

Attended a conference here and overall, the facility was very nice. Room was clean, although the sheets never quite fit the bed. The sheets were smaller than the king sized mattress so kept coming off of the corners because they could not be pulled all the way down. Had several meals as part of conference, and most of them were...

Visited here recently and was extremely pleased. The hotel was very clean and the staff was very pleasant. The bed was comfortable and most important to me was it was quiet. Although the hotel was very busy the rooms were almost sound proof. Another plus was the large parking lot that was well lit. I would recommend a stay here...

I really liked the conference rooms at the Crowne. I really appreciate that some rooms have comfy couches instead of the boring setup. The grounds are beautiful with lake vista and waterfall. There is plenty of free parking too. I sampled the food over 3 days. The food was Ok but not very impressive or presented in an appealing manner....

Nice room, quiet but breakfast was too expensive for what they offered. No omelette station. Nice staff though. The conference center is across the walkway ramp. Weddings galore there too! The GPS tells you to go to Holiday Inn, which is connected by walkway, but Crowne Plaza is the next street over. The Front desk did not have any bandaid....

The hotel has been improved since Crown Plaza took ownership, in terms of room decoration, lobby and breakfast, but not enough. You expect better quality and service from Crown Plaza. The location is great and the parking is free and close to the hotel.

This hotel is a nice conference center hotel. The grounds are beautiful and well kept, the facility clean and the rooms handsomely suited for an individual or family.

I stayed at this hotel with a 6 year old and 18 month old as part of a "sesame place" package.

However, we thought the hotel was an impressive business center that wasn't really kid-friendly...
