“Dated Decor - Just OK”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2006

I stayed at the Crown Plaza Lake Placid during mid August 2006. Check in was quick and easy. Our room was ok, but the decor in the room and through out the hotel is dated. The balconies are small. Our first morning, the shower was very cold. That was fixed that day, so there were no more problems after that. Breakfast was included with our package and it wasn't that great. The food here is average. There is an indoor pool that's open from 9am-9:30pm. It's usually crowded with kids unless you get there soon after it opens. The bar area is updated and nice. Drinks are about $5.50 a pop. There is a new suite section of the hotel. I would have rather stayed there than in our room. Overall, this hotel was ok. Very sub-par to something like a Marriott. I probably would not stay here again.

Some of what I have heard is true for the Crowne Plaza..... The rooms are still small and bathrooms are nothing to smile at. A lot of things were pretty neat, I mean the view was wonderful.....outside. The great rooms were pleasant. We were there for seminars and they were WONDERFUL at hosting them and setting up and cleaning up along with our meals that were provided in our weekend, and accomidating our group's needs
But there was a smell of urine at the end of a hall by the olympic rooms....like a busted pipe..........was HORRID. I can understand the maintence and renovation and all that goes with it but still the stentch was ........yuck!
So ditch the smell and i agree that the last meal we had in the dinning area closest to the front door, sure could use some pepping up (the other meals were in the nice dinning hall and were great)..... and please get some better paintings on the walls the food paintings were not relaxing and pleasing to the eye, they had bold bright colors and ...... food????
oh though i have to say that the staff behind the counter and the staff at the bar and the waiters (who out classed the waitresses) in the fancy dining hall were great.......but watch out for some of the other guys..... either waiting 20-30 mintues for a couple sandwiches(with impatient kids in tow) or hearing some young male worker complain about his job with some unapproved of language in front of my kids.

I enjoyed the Crown Plaza very much I found that the décor was very nice and relaxing and that they had many facilities in the hotel to enjoy. I also found the rooms to be very comfortable with the nice beds and the refrigerator/microwave. However I found the staff to be a bit sarcastic with their little snooty comments that they told me when I inquired about the tennis facilities. As well, I found that some of the staff in the hotel gets in your personal business to often which I don’t appreciate because it isn’t any of their business. As a result I recommend the hotel it you have a special diet and want to bring in food into the hotel, however, don’t talk too much to the hotel staff because they can get quite rude and sarcastic.
