As a woman travelling alone on a 4 day business trip, I found this to be a great hotel. Staff was friendly and helpful. I felt safe both in the hotel and in the neighborhood. A free shuttle to the airport is available. The hotel was spotless, bed very comfortable, linens and towels all of good quality. The room had... More

First time here. I'm usually a Holiday Inn customer but was very pleased. Kudos to Nasra on the front desk who bumped us up to a suite and free buffet. However they still haven't fixed the Key thing and I kept returning for a new key. Lots to do in Old Towne including Restaurants,pubs and walking or boat tours. It... More

I stayed at this property last month. At check in, I was given keys that did not work. The front desk was understaffed. When I went back for new keys, I had to wait about 20 minutes. On the upside, I was given a river view room, which I had not initially reserved. The room itself was good. Comfortable bed,... More

My most recent stay here shows that reinvesting in the rooms makes a huge difference. The hotel bar/restaurant was quite a surprise, lots of local beers on tap, nice range of good food and not a per diem crusher. The front desk staff seem bored, but the place is a decent place to stay and grab some food. Breakfast is... More

Food was excellent. Great selection and choice of breakfast foods. Clean, bright and great service. Was served by a waitress named Senait who was very efficient and friendly. Try it, you will like it. Randy McDonald

I often stay at the Crown Plaza Old Town and the morning restaurant manager Nancy is always a pleasant face and insures excellent service. She often goes out of her way to insure that each guest is taken care of.
