Crowne Plaza Blue Ash was a nice, comfortable stay for me and my wife after a day at Kings Island. The bed was plush and everything about the room seemed clean and fine. The A/C worked a little too well...very cold in there.
It looks like this hotel was upgraded from a different brand and expanded in recent years. Our room overlooked a hallway, so there was no natural light in the daytime. Also, the room was inconvenient to get to. We had to ride an elevator, then go down a half-flight of stairs to reach our hallway. Not easy when you have big luggage. It wasn't all that quiet, because the pool is in the atrium, and the sound echoed through there.
The TV only offered limited channels, and some of them weren't even working (namely NBC). At least the internet was free.
The front desk staff seemed a little snooty, and it seemed like everything had an extra charge. Parking, however, was free. There is no continental breakfast, but there is a restaurant in the atrium. We chose not to eat there.
All in all, a comfortable stay. Crowne Plaza is about a half-star above what my wife and I are used to, so we'll probably just save our money and go with a less-expensive brand in the future. I will give this hotel a positive recommendation, however.
