Barcha -

We thank you for looking into the Crowne Plaza's "new" Fiesta event. Sorry you folks didn't come away with what you anticipated - but glad you took time to share the details. Sounds to us like there are many kinks to be worked out - and that the C.P. folks aren't an overly friendly bunch of people. We'll steer clear - and maybe(?) try the dinner-show at L.B.'s "El Mexicano" (which is also reportedly MX$650/pp).

We agree with the gist of your posting (re: ACA and a lack of cultural entertainment). For some odd reason, those who pull the strings "just don't get it"! It would seem that, in light of the recent catastrophe on the Yucatan, now is an opportune time to for ACA's promoters to (re-)establish some of what's missing or been lost along the way. The former (more public) Fiesta Mexicana would be a start. [Something generally affordable!] Nonetheless, our tentative plans have us dining at Las Brisas on a Friday night (we actually enjoy their Bella Vista restaurant - food, ambience, & view - though it is a tad on the expensive side); and, if their El Mexicano restaurant is then open (and offering the dinner/show), we may decide to try it out (instead of Bella Vista). [Heard that the views from El Mexicano are equally stunning.] As for the Crowne - at US$65/pp, they can keep it - IMO.

Buenas Tardes, all ...

The funny thing is that we went to Crowne Plaza because I am a priority club member of the hotel, and I stay at their LaGuardia airport location in NY at least 10 times a year.

As a matter of fact even if I fly out of JFK I will stay at the CP at LaGuardia every time.

It has always been a wonderful hotel with excellent service.

You just never know.
