4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Our experience started with a lovely lady concierge organising all our activities (as it was a short stop over). Lobby nice and clean and bar was also nice. Bedrooms are nothing special tbh but clean and tidy and we had a good sleep after a long flight.

Had a last minute business trip in this part of Houston and found the property through my IHG app. Everything was great about my visit...check-in, parking, getting to my room, and great sleep! I'd definitely recommend staying here as I will be planning on it.

Needed to go to the Chinese Consulate for visas in Houston. Selected this hotel as it seemed to be a good value and close to both the Chinese Consulate and the Galleria. We hit a home run for the money. Room was excellent, though I wish I would have asked for a better view. The bed was comfortable. Everything was... More

5 stars for location and value. But not a '5 star' hotel. It is modest and clean, sufficient for a business stay. I would not enjoy for vacation, as it faces freeway and there is not much exterior ambiance. The lobby is clean and well decorated. The valet and parking staff were prompt and courteous always

This was our second visit to Crowne Plaza. From the moment you drive up, check in, open the door to the room, we were not disappointed. This staff definitely works as a team. Clean, convenient, friendly. We do NOT like driving in Houston and they provide a shuttle service to and from our favorite restaurant Goode's Seafood! They have very... More

Great comfortable beds, love the room, large and very comfortable beds for 2 adults and 2 children, elegant room, elegant lobby. The kids loved the choice of breakfast options. Great staff. The location is idea of business travellers, for personal travel, it works very well. Price was excellent too at the time we needed a safe, comfortable place to rest.

Staff was awesome. Hotel was in the middle of everywhere we needed to go. Walking distance to Lakewood church. Hotel offers complimentary shuttle which is nice. We would definitely stay at Plaza again. It was very clean and staff very professional.

I stay there almost every week and love to go back every time.
