I recently stayed at the Crowne Plaza for a business meeting. Upon check-in, I was upgraded due to being a IHG Rewards member and I had a very nice 8th floor room overlooking the marina, but that is not why I was there! My first priority was to log in to a business meeting online and I found out 15 minutes before my meeting that the internet in the hotel was not working. The front desk told me just a few minutes earlier to navigate to their wireless connection and click on Terms of agreement. I continued to try throughout the afternoon and evening and was continually prompted to enter a log in and password though the front desk continued to tell me that I didn't need to do that. This continued into the next morning and I never did get online. I finally gave up completely since I had to go downstairs to the meeting room for my conference. This was when things really deteriorated so please note that if you ever need to book a meeting or other event at this facility, be certain to inquire about other meetings that might be going on simultaneously. As is turns out, just on the other side of a thin dividing wall of our meeting room was a lively group that spent the entire morning not only whooping and rejoicing, but also singing and clapping their hands! Our group of higher education administrators and scholars were unable to hear our presenters despite having amplification. To say the least, the entire experience for us was a complete disaster!
