Holy Cow, this is absolutely the worst hotel that I could have imagined staying in for this trip to Houston. When choosing a hotel, I am quite selective and my experience has told me that Crown Plaza hotels are generally nice. I was wrong, horribly & terribly wrong. The first night, I was tired, so I was able to ignore the fact that the staff was rude, the room was less than satisfactory and the advertised amenities were absent, however, upon returning to this dump for the second night, I was less than pleased to discover that my already substandard room had been cleaned by someone that forgot to replace the towels after taking the dirty ones and left no ice bucket. (The ice situation is already a disaster since the one on this floor is broken as is the one on the floor above me.) I decided that it was time to get help from the front desk so I headed downstairs in one of the death trap elevators. (Pictures to follow.) Once I was able to gain the desk agents attention, (she was watching something incredibly interesting on her phone in the back room) she told me that I would have to wait until morning when a Manager arrived to get assistance with my concerns. I suppose I will use the blow dryer to dry off in the morning after my shower so I can talk to the manager.... that is convenient, isn't it? So, if you have a preference for a quality hotel, I would advise that you not book here. You might be more comfortable sleeping in your car. Based on my experience showering in your car would be just as easy as it is here at the Crown Plaza. (If you are in your car it would certainly be easier to get ice!) Lackluster and inconsiderate staff, shoddy facilities, death trap elevators and advertised amenities that don't exist are solid proof that IHG Hotels do not enforce any sort of quality standards and do not monitor the quality of the properties that display the Crown Plaza name. That being considered, once I have successfully dried off with the blow dryer in the morning, I am going to see if I can hang a Crown Plaza sign on my shed and book reservations through IHG for a profit. I actually feel like my shed is just as nice, if not nicer than this Crown Plaza location.

Bad experience during my travel to Houston. Since the first day too many issues with the room. Many of the nights there was no hot water even worst there was no cold water in the morning. Definitely I will avoid choosing the hotel next time!!!

As mentioned in many reviews the Plaza needs a renovation. They’re working on it. We were lucky to get renovated rooms. Well done but also still a way to go for the whole place. Highlight of the hotel for me were the breakfast omelets cooked to perfection by the lovely lady cook. Worth mentioning is that this hotel is very popular by patients visiting the nearby hospital for cancer treatments.

I have been going to the Crown Plaza River Oaks in Houston for over two months straight and their shuttle Service is absolutely phenomenal. The drivers are so caring and helpful. The best experience out of the entire hotel! Leo treated us like family and was always on time and very accommodating!! Unbelievable service
