We got an incredibly good deal with SniqueAway.com so we thought we'd try the Crowne Plaza since it is a brand we've never tried. The room was clean and comfortable and we slept well. The bathroom sink area is a bit small and cramped compared to some other hotels. There was only one night stand and the other side of the bed had a floor lamp, but when we questioned it, they immediately brought one in for us. We also had an issue with a very musty smelling sofa but they tried to fix the problem with some spray. Sadly, it did not help. The front desk was very attentive. The pool was beautiful but quite cold for a heated pool. (We've been traveling through FL and had been enjoying many warm pools.) When we mentioned it, they seemed happy to know and said that the temps had been so warm that maybe it was turned down. We appreciated having an exercise room (the tvs on the equipment weren't working real well though but I'm sure if we had remembered to mention it, they would have been right on it). The breakfast buffet would have been 10.95 but was included in our deal. It was very good, esp. the hot food, but fruit other than apples, bananas and oranges would have been nice. I liked the blue velvet chairs in the lobby and Shoeless Joe's Sports Cafe was very good. For the price we paid through SniqueAway.com (unbelievably....$124 for two nights including the breakfast!) we would stay again.
