We use the Crowne Plaza monthly for a meeting of our professional society. We have anywhere from 65-120 people attend. The staff is always super helpful and our room is set up, ready and waiting for us! We appreciate the great service! And the food is good too!

This a well maintained modern design hotel reminiscent of the 70's and 80's. Despite its age it is in excellent condition and we were pleased with our room, which was comfortable with nice beds. Not fancy or "new", but well appointed. Hotel has a nice bar and lounge area, with a separate restaurant that serves a very nice breakfast buffet....

I've stayed here twice in the past couple of weeks for business, and I couldn't be happier. The staff is absolutely one of the friendliest I have ever met, and so helpful. The hotel itself is very clean and nicely decorated. I've had the pancakes for breakfast twice, and they're wonderful, and the lady who delivers them to my room...

We were visiting friends in Hickory and needed a good place to stay that would be close to our friends and would have an indoor pool for my daughter. The Crowne Plaza Hickory was an excellent choice. Although it isn't one of the brand new chains in the area, we found it to be luxuriously furnished, clean, and well maintained....

The location is ideal... staff is extremely friendly... clean and comfortable. I have stayed in every hotel chain in America and this location is of the very best. I travel to North Carolina twice a month and schedule my work so I can sleep in Hickory

The hotel is clean and convenient. The rooms are well appointed and the service is some of the best you'll find. The bathrooms were clean and in very good condition. Would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a nice, clean room at a good price.

The place is old and dated. Smells old & moldy. Room looked as clean as I'm sure the staff could get it. But the furniture looks to be from the 60s including the old phone with the big buttons. I would have stayed but when I checked mattress seams, I saw bugs crawling. Went to front desk to check out....

This hotel was recommended and there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. However, there are several other options close by that are similarly priced and in quieter locations. This hotel is along the highway and is rather noisy even at night. Also, the first floor rooms have external doors. Rates are reasonable. The room is comfortable and large. However, the...

Visited my parents over Thanksgiving, and they took us to the restaurant at the Crowne Plaza in Hickory for Thanksgiving Dinner. The service, from the time we walked in the door, until we left, was horrible. Though my father had made reservations, we still waited 30 minutes to be seated, all the while watching groups the same size as ours...

This has always been a great Thanksgiving buffet. Today was horrible. We arrived at 1:30 and all the food was ice cold. Everyone was complaining. Many having their meals microwaved. What a disappointment ! We will not return.

“Our room looked out on an indoor corrider, which I liked. I was afraid this would be noisy, but it wasn't, perhaps because we were staying on a non-busy week night. If you are noise sensitive, be sure to ask about this.”
