I don't normally slam in my reviews - before this one, the lowest rating I've given is a three dot (average), but this was by far the worst experience we've had. My bride and I, even though local, decided to use the crown plaza prior to our vacation to Vail because of its proximity to the airport. As the trip leader for the SCWDC 2010 Vail ski trip, I published their parking policy to my 30 travelers. The crown plaza quoted us a AARP price prior to arriving, that they reniegned on we were were there, after a great night at the Ice House - of course we were then stuck. The night manager was surly and not accomiidating.
That night, we were awaken multiple time by a very vocal working lady next door. The night progressed to her friend not paying her at 3:30, and her yelling out the door that he was robbing her. The desk staff wanted to sweep the whole thing under the rug. The three police officers understanding of the evening matched our conclusion. The excitement ended at about 4:00am. Even though I had made multiple trips to the front desk, they did not even hint at comp'ing us a part of the stay when we checked out. Here is where it gets even worst.
The policy of the crown plaza is that some guests are more important than others. We had to stand and watch the 5:30 shuttle leave. Eight of us got on the 6:00 for our 6:00 scheduled show at the airport, and the driver tried to kick us off so two pilots could get one - even though there was two seats remaining.
The place, like the afore mentioned lady has failen from grace. The interior windows had there frames pulling off the windows. We really wondered whether we were safe. This place needs cleaning up - Their managers don't care about their clients, and don't seem to be empowered to make positive changes. Another nit exemplifies the attitude, when asked about the coffee, we were told, "they are always late" if so, they managements job is to make it better. Don't stay here.
