We stayed at the Plaza because of its convenient location across from the Scope. We won't be making that mistake again. The condition of the hotel, combined with the lack of amenities and service, were horrible considering what they charged per night. The front desk admitted that 90% of the people staying at the Plaza were gov't contracted workers and... More

We came down recently to visit a couple of friends. I can't lie, reading some of the earlier reviews of this hotel had me a little worried. I stayed here once when it was the Crowne Plaza and it was pretty good. I stayed here recently under the new name and it was pretty good as well. No, it is... More

We were attending an event in the downtown Scope and decided to stay at this place due to close proximity to everything. We were little reluctant at first due lack of brand name but we were pleasantly surprised with our stay. The lobby decor was very impressive and reminded us of one of the hotels we stayed in the Hollywood.... More

I went to the plaza hotel a year ago. And just knew that it was a place I wanted to take my wife for our one year anniversary and I did take her on the 28th of December. We enjoyed our stay, it was just walking distance from the store and restaurants and it gave us a chance to walk... More

Our organisation used the Plaza for its Christmas function at the last minute (6 weeks notice) due to the hotel we had contracted being sold and renovated. The Plaza catering manager and staff took care of our 200 person buffet dinner with great aplomb. They really did do a great job and had another event going on at the same... More

We planned a holiday breakfast for my office on a very short notice. Angelo was able to efficiently provide a quick turn around and create a wonderful space (complete with decorations) to accommodate our office. He was extremely professional and nice. His staff was attentive and catered to our every need. I would whole heartedly recommend Angelo to cater any... More

I would not recommend this hotel for anyone to stay there its very unprofessional, unorganized, and clueless of what they are doing. We stayed at this hotel because it was a business trip for my husband, which turned out to be the one of the worst stays ever. There was a banquet for his job at the hotel, we never... More
