June 2008!! We had a graduation at the National War College and a family reunion to attend in the DC/VA area. I went on priceline and for $70.00 a night I booked three rooms for 5 days. (Quite the savings from booking any hotel in that area directly.) We stayed at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Old Town. The staff from the front desk to housekeeping to engineering at the hotel were outstanding. A+
First I checked in and traveling with my elderly parents I wanted them in a king room/hanidcapped accessible. AND I wanted the other two rooms as close as possible to my parents room. Front Desk Clerk, Jason, said he would do everything possible to make that happen for us. AND HE DID. We were all on the 4th floor, 401 (me) 403 (sis) (these were adjoining rooms, so awesome) and Mom&Dad 404 (king handicapped)!! A+
The rooms Jason secured for us were awesome. Brand new plasma screen t.v.'s as well as other fab amenities. The beds were so comfortable. Plush bedding with plush duvets. They even have the Sony Dream Machine radio next to each bed along with a CD (compliments of the hotel) to play at bedtime called "Sleep Soundly"!!! Also they have a guarantee on wake-up calls, if they forget, your room is FREE. (They never forgot our calls)!
We ate lunch one day in the restaurant on the 2nd floor and it was delicious. The service was wonderful. The waiters and waitresses were very attentive.
My sis' remote for her tv did not work. She called the front desk and in minutes engineering showed up with a brand new remote.
Housekeeping, Maria R. was very generous in all our calls for extra towels and pillows and blankets (we had the a/c going).
Conceirge, Tom, secured us dinner reservations. And when we would ask for directions to any sight they would print off mapquest for us.
They have complimentary coffee and cookies going all the time in the lobby as well as a free laptop/printer for your pleasure and use. I used it to print off my Southwest boarding passes.
All in all we had an awesome time at the Crowne Plaza, Old Town. A+ to everyone.
