2 nights here to take a quick look at Tampa. Generally the hotel was nice and the pool area was good, with sun nearly all day. We loved the Mojito bar and restaurant. Staff at reception were all very helpful. Plenty of complimentary parking. I think I was upgraded as we ended up in a suite. However, the Cabana suites... More

This a renovated property, and it has a very art deco feeling. It is close to airport and within 15 mins of downtown and st pete. Restaurant is overpriced, but that is par for the course in these style of properties. Try to get the bay view, otherwise you will only see the parking lot.

Stayed here in March and enjoyed a spacious room, clean linens and kind service. The A/C unit was very loud in the room, which did interrupt my sleep, but the bed was incredibly comfortrable and that made up for it for the most part. The shower was huge and clean. Indulged in room service and the breakfast was quite good:... More

We stayed one night as a stopover between London and Key West. We had a courteous welcome, stayed in a clean, modern, spacious room and enjoyed the restaurant and bar. The Crowne Plaza is very close to the airport, so well located for our purposes. It's not really a holiday destination hotel. It's surrounded by roads and doesn't offer spectacular... More

Very clean, large rooms. Thin doors relative to outside hall noise. Good internet wireless throughout hotel. Free on-site parking. Easy walking distance to mall. Pool not really heated, but this is Tampa so who cares most of the time. As it turns out, breakfast potatoes are always orange and purple in addition to white, not just for Halloween. Front desk...

The name Crowne Plaza evokes elegance, but this hotel falls just a bit short of expectations The lobby staff were polite, the décor was fine if rather bland, the restaurant was clean but overall, that little bit of luxury that puts this brand over the edge was missing. Perhaps it was the woodwork in my bathroom that was rotting, or... More
