My partner and I stayed at the Metro Crowne Plaza this past weekend. It was nice, but not what I expect from a Crowne Plaza. It was more like a contemporary Holiday Inn Express. Think, Target or Ikea contemporary. The Internet requires a cord which is kind of a pain if you want to use your computer in bed. The website states marble bathrooms, which is what most Crowne Plazas have, this just has the standard tiled bathroom, thought the vanity has a kind of cool faucet, which is to the left side and kind of makes it odd when washing your face.
Both light bulbs in one desk lamp were blown and the lights over the bed turn off at random. Over all this was a nice hotel though, however if you are looking for more luxury, I would recommend either the Allerton crowne plaza or the Intercontinental.
