“A Perfect Getaway!”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

We loved every minute at the Crowne Plaza. The staff was incredibly warm and friendly. The rooms were ideal. Loved Loved Loved the corner room with two balconies. Never missed seeing the beach as the pool was beautifully landscaped and a perfect temperature of 86 degrees. Music was fabulous. The restaurant was great. Enjoyed the breakfast buffet (best value) and their burgers were medium rare, juicy and full of flavor. Having a waiter serving drinks at the pool was the ultimate in luxury. Walk across the bridge to Nandos for a lovely but $$$$ Italian dinner. We will be back.

Room Tip: Corner suites are ideal - the higher the better!

This hotel which is located next to one of the intercoastals has a dark reception area that makes it look seedy. Instead of taking advantage of the light, this area makes it feel like it is in the Northeast or midwest- in other words, much darker than outside. This is a shame as the sun is a highlight for visitors from the North to Florida at this time of year.
The room was much nicer than the reception. It was spacious and clean. The room service (I had a dinner and a lunch there) could have been better. At the dinner, I had requested a salad instead of fries with my burger. I ended getting nothing. The crust of the key lime pie was poorly made and came apart when taking a bite. Took 1/2 hour for a simple order. The in-room safe was finicky. There is both a fridge and a microwave making me suspect that this hotel caters more to families, since the fridge was not stocked with any items.
The health club was also a disappointment. It was small and did not have any video hookups with the machines. There were about a half dozen treadmills and bikes, including recumbent bikes, but no ellipticals. Not what I would expect for this brand, which is a supposed upgrade from a Holiday Inn.
On the plus side, there was free internet, both wireless and cable. The wireless reception was +/-. I think that if the hotel renovates and opens up with more windows the reception would be much more cheerful.

Room Tip: Try to get a higher room which may have more of a view. My room on a low floor (at my request) had a...

Stayed 4 nights in Mid December 2012. The rooms are very comfortable and roomy and the service was great. Beds were comfortable and each room had a balcony. We had a view of the intercostal waterway and the pool...The pool area had a hot tub and a bar the served lunch and snacks. Also a water Taxi stop.
We would certainly stay there again.

Stayed here for 4 nights during a business trip. Friendly and helpful staff, clean, spaceous rooms, free fast internet connection, nice pretty big pool with a seperate wirlpool (very HOT). Beach is located just 3 minutes walk across a busy road. Quiet, slept like a baby, ok breakfast, but not much fiber except from fruits. It's located far from south beach, but if you're not heading there this is a great location not too far from the airport.

Tip - if you need to weight your suitcase there is a portable "hook-weight" that they will borrow you for free.

I stayed here for 2 nights while attending a conference in the area.
The staff is very friendly and rooms were very nice. It is a short walk to the beach.
The restaurant is quite nice. Overall a very pleasant stay.

We booked 2 rooms for 3 adults for 4 nights, Dec. 9-13, 2012. We took advantage of a promotion that with 3 nights the 4th night was free. The rooms were spacious and comfortable, especially the beds and pillows, large shower, and small kitchen area. The infinity pool is lovely, right on the Intercoastal Waterway, with its own stop on the Water Taxi route. The beach is a short walk across the street. If you don't have a car, there are no shops or restaurants within walking distance. Parking is $17 per day/$19 for valet.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor for views of the beach or Intercoastal.
