I was very skeptical about staying at the Crowne Plaza in Cinci due to the fact that I found very limited review on this property. I was pleasantly suprised. Upon our arrival, the first thing that I noticed was that the grounds were very clean and attractive. I was pleasantly greeted at the front desk and check in was quick and efficient. I must say however, that I was disappointed in the size of my room. It felt very claustrophobic (King Bed Leisure Room). When I opened the door there was a small entrance way/closet area and then you were right inside of the room. (definately not worth $139 plus tax per night). Upon getting situated we decided to walk around the hotel and grab a bite to eat. As it was pretty late (almost 11p.m.) we thought that we would have to go out for food but we were graciously accomadated in the hotel restaurant by a gentleman named A.J. He made us feel very welcome and told us to order anything we would like off of the menu. I was also pretty suprised by the menu selection and prices, which were pretty standard and not overpriced. The food was good. A.J. also asked us how we were enjoying our stay and I advised A.J. that my only complaint was the size of my room. A.J. immediately took action without telling us and came back to our table with keycards to another much more acceptable room. All we had to do was move our things. A.J. had taken care of everything else. On the next day we enjoyed the lunch buffet at the hotel. The staff was very accomadating and friendly. The only thing that I would suggest is a little more training with housekeeping. We wanted to take a nap prior to attending the Jazz Festival but were unable to do so because our room was not cleaned until 5 p.m., after we had returned from taking in the city. The following day, our room was serviced earlier. However, housekeepiong only made the beds and replaced the towels. The sink, tub and toilet were not cleaned. Nor was the room vacuumed. However, overall, the staff was great. We had the opportunity to meet the hotel Manager and the Chef. Kudos to the staff (and especially A.J. that went out of thier way to make sure that we had everything that we needed or wanted. We were told that this particular property was previously a Clarion Hotel but had just been purchased by Crowne and had just gone thru a major renovation. The rooms were tastefully appointed and very clean. The public areas (pool, restaurant, bar, computer center and lobby were always clean and welcoming. When I am in the Cincinnatti area again, The Crowne Plaza will be my 1st choice for hotel accomodations.
