Reviewed September 2, 2012

Wow, so I was on a trip to TEXAS to see my grandchildren before they went back to school. Drove all the way from Montrose, PA. My husband did most of the driving. And we stopped many many times to see attractions along the way. It took us a few days but it was much more exciting.
They live just down in Sugarland which wasn't that far away. We wanted a suite in case the kids wanted to hang out with Mammi and Pappy at the hotel. I couldn't believe the price! I expected a small little suite and here was this great big old room. I remember telling Bill (my husband) that I think we had an apartment this size once, he agreed. We got there late but the staff didn't skip a beat. They welcomed us, asked me if I was a priority member. I responded that I think I was not but that I should be, did it cost extra. The girl at the counter responded with a great big smile that it was free and came with many benefits. We stayed at 2 Holiday Inn hotels along the way and were never offered this but now I can get points and be a "priority".
We had such a blast in the pool with the grand kids and went all over the city. Ben (bellman/concierge) suggested a few places we should go and even offered to take us.
Every person we met seemed so genuinely friendly. We met a tall bald manager that greeted us in the restaurant and talked to us for a bit. The breakfast staff was so nice and helpful. And every time I had a question the girls at the front desk would help.
We hope to come back soon!

Our daughter is attending HBU. Not only is this hotel super close, its one of the best rooms we have ever stayed at...especially at $100.00. Our room was a two queen suite. Its like an apartment! A small living area...NICE, with a seperate bedroom. Way better than what we expected. Love the lay out of the room and the overall hotel. Friendly staff. If you're in the Houston Baptist University area, this should be your hotel.

Crowne Plaza is the closest Hotel to Sugar Land without having to pay for Sugar Land prices. I come to Houston an average of 5 to 6 times a year. I used to stay at hotels in the Sugar Land area but their prices were going through the roof. I am glad we found Crowne Plaza because now I can stay only a few miles away and pay 1/2 the price. There are a lot of ammenities around, Sugar Land shopping, Galleria only 10 minutes away, Hillcroft with a lot of International restaurants ( mostly Indian and Middle Eastern), shopping, etc. The outside looks outdated, it's a converted Embassy Suites into a CP. The inside is different, they ugraded the place and it looks modern and clean. Large clean rooms, good service on all levels, in house restaurant, pool, etc.

Stayed here for a week while on a work trip. Large suite rooms with all required.Hotel bar very poorly stocked as regards to choice. Evening food ok but buffet breakfast poor. Hotel staff good altough one or two of them seem to have attitude problem. Hotel provide shuttle service to malls and attractions.

Room Tip: I would think rooms at front might be noisey as freeway directly at front of hotel

My experience at this Crowne Plaza has been great. Very comfortable rooms with great service from the hotel staff. The concierge staff are very attentive, always making sure that your needs have been satisfied. The restaurant offers good quality plates at an affordable price. They have a nice indoor pool. They offer you free parking, free hot breakfast, free transportation within a 10 mile radius to the hotel, and free night snacks. Mr. Edgar Vasquez (night manager), Sarai Ramos (day manager) and Emily Zelada ( concierge executive services) have made my stay an excellent one. I will definitely stay again at this hotel when I re-visit the area. It is located in a good safe location close to restaurants within walking distance. I recommend this hotel.

When we travel we like to stay in Embassy Suites type rooms because we have a child and it works best for us. Well this hotel used to be an Embassy Suites but we did not have to pay Embassy Suites prices. It was in a good location for us. Easy to get to wherever we needed to go. The staff was very nice and attentive. Breakfast was good except for the waffle sticks which were awful. There were enough choices so it didn't matter to us. We had lunch at the hotel restaurant one day and it was really good. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of pillows. I love the fact that they don't have a bedspread that we would remove anyway. Just takes up more space. The indoor pool was really nice and clean.

Someone wrote in their review that they had a problem because they were told that breakfast was free but for them it wasn't since a box was not checked off. My suggestion is that you always bring a copy of your most recent e-mail confirmation as proof of what you expect.

I recommend this hotel VERY highly!!!

My Dad thought it would be fun to have a boys only weekend.
At first I thought it was going to be pretty boring with no video games or tv and some weird awkward camping trip where I would have to learn to be a man.
It was actually pretty cool and he suggested I let other people know how much fun a 15 year old and his Dad can have.
We went to Galveston for a day and had some fun but the really fun part of the weekend was when we stayed at this Crowne Plaza. We went swimming in their pool. Then ate a huge plate of ribs and got to lounge in the room, watch tv, even ordered a movie on pay per view.
Definitely a cool hotel.
