Used to live in Pensacola and had to come back for a few days. I chose this hotel because I knew it was centrally located to many of the highlights of the city (beaches, downtown attractions, restaurants). It used to be a Hilton Hotel and some other things, but is now a Crowne Plaza. The lobby and bar areas have a nice atmosphere and feature the historic nature of the train station it is built on. I was upgraded without asking to the concierge floor (14 and 15th at the top of this hotel). The room was nice and had quality bedding and was tastefully furnished. Cleanliness was fine as well.
Here's the downside-I noticed a little packet with a sleeping mask and earplugs on the bed. Thought that was interesting and nothing more-that is, until it was time to sleep. The room walls are paper thin and you can hear normal conversations and all of the TV shows your neighbor is watching. Additionally, trains run past several times during each night and because of the downtown location, blow their horns for several seconds as they cross nearby intersections. I've never had to use earplugs in a room before, but used these both nights of my stay. So if quiet is important to you I can't recommend this hotel.
