“Crowne Plaza is hit or miss, this one kinda hits.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2012

This Crowne Plaza is equatable to a Comfort Inn Suite. The rooms are a good size and clean but it's very busy and a bit noisy. The restaurant food isn't that good. Also, it's hard to park, even in the middle of the afternoon, we circled around twice at 3:30! We paid $149 per night so reasonable but there are probably better deals.

We stayed here four nights. The location is good, the free shuttle to Universal was nice, I liked the bar and the young lady that greeted us and checked us in was very professional and nice. In fact, the entire staff was nice. This is by no means a bad hotel, it is just a little worn and I think rating it four stars is a real stretch. Our room was cleaned well each day but the bathroom walls had all sorts of stains on them as did the carpet. You will also know all the names and personal details of your next door neighbors before the night is over (bring earplugs). The place is loud. But, if you did as we did and bid a reasonable price, it's a perfectly acceptable place to spend a few nights in Orlando.

Stayed one night, and liked the hotel very much. Great value for the price and location. A couple miles from Universal and very close to Wet and Wild. The Premium outlets are close too. The Hotel has an upscale feel and the room was clean. It ws nice to get the upgrade to the Executive level with my Priority Club Gold. Had a King bed on the 15th floor with a nice big bathrood, flat screen, and a little sitting area.

The gym was nice very adequate for a hotel gym. 2 eliptical machines that didn't work and about 6 treadmills. It had free weights, a couple bikes, and a universal machine.

The pool was a little small, but nice.

I would stay again.

Had a reward night to use at the Universal property, had a great experience with the check-in process. Recieved a complimentary upgrade and club lounge access. The room on the 15th floor was large, clean and had a hot tub in the bathroom. Parking was free if you self-parked.Would return again.

Room Tip: high floors are best

Attended a meeting at this hotel and it was all fun. The Room was great with enough day light that I love. Even though this is'nt really a meetings hotel, I think the team did a great job. With different groups inhouse, they had to organize buffets all around and they managed that efficiently.

The staff is very pleasant and helpful. The bar is one place to hangout if you are not at the Universal Studios.

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floor give you a great view!!
