Crowne Plaza Hotel Virginia Beach -Town Center
Ranked #59 of 109 Hotels in Virginia Beach
Reviewed May 28, 2009

While in town for a friend's wedding, I stayed 3 nights at the Crowne Plaza with friends. We had two double beds and a cot. I wasn't expecting much from the cot, but it was another double bed unto itself, which was great, despite making the room a bit of a tight squeeze. One of my first experiences in the hotel room though was finding a booger -- yes, an unmistakable one -- in a folded towel. I was pretty horrified but the front desk was friendly and graciously replaced the towels (the rest of which were booger-free, thank goodness). The maid service left something to be desired in that she didn't give us replacement toilet paper the first day, and showed up way too early (9 am) to actually clean up the second day.

The pool area looks a bit old and tired, and the hot tub had a low water level and was not very hot, but it was clean enough. If you don't have a car (most people will I imagine), there is a Wendy's and a 7-11 within walking distance, though it does require crossing a fairly busy road with no crosswalk. Room service food was okay, but arrived quickly, and the guy who brought it up was very nice. My top praise for the Crowne Plaza, though, is reserved for the breakfast buffet at the Tines. There was an omelet bar, waffle maker with toppings, grits, sausage, bacon, eggs, sausage gravy, fruit, cereal -- I could live the rest of my life eating nothing but this breakfast buffet. I ate it 3 days in a row and it was definitely one of the high points of my trip. :)

The wireless internet was also very nice and easy to use.

Yes it a little older but still quite nice.
Only had two small problems but didnt need to mention till checkout.
(water dripped in the tub a little annoyingly, and room temp was a little cool, but tolerable. WIndow unit didnt heat at all).

You can tell this hotel hasn't been updated in quite a few years but they have all the amenties that you would expect from a nicer hotel. Free Wireless, nice linens, bar, restaurant, pool, fitness center downstairs, and the staff was nice and friendly. I booked on Hotwire and got 2 nights for far less than any other site. Of course I didn't know which hotel I was getting at the time, but for the location and star rating, it was a great deal. I can see why this hotel would use Hotwire to sell their leftover rooms...the rooms are straight out of the late 80s....along with the moldy tile in the shower. I mean, the room had been cleaned to the best of the housekeepers ability, but you can only do so much with something that is old. Either way, its a decent hotel, but if you are going to pay 150 dollars a night for a hotel of your choice, I would definitely choose the Westin or Hilton Garden Inn over this hotel.

Was looking for an above average place to celebrate New Years Eve with a loved one , upon booking the reservation and inquiring about an upgrade , we were given a suite with a luxurgious king size bed and a two person Jacuzzi right near the bed ! The hotel was centrally located , with shuttle service available , so we were able to go out on the town and enjoy the evening , without worrying about having to drive , or wonder how'd we get back ! The hotel staff was excellent and the room that we stayed in was definitely above average , very clean and also very comfortable , plenty of clean towels , very quite !

Located near the Towne Center renewal area, this hotel is a bit older,but has been renovated.
The linens are excellent & the bed is very nice. The room has a fridge,micro and sofa bed. I did find the housekeeping lacking because they forgot to clean some areas of the room and I found hairs in the nice,fluffy towels.
The front desk crew was responsive and did listen & gave me some extra points.
I was disappointed that there was no flat screen TV, and that the room fixtures (esp in the bath) were old & showed it.

Recently stayed here for a few days. Conveniently located 10 mins from Norfolk International Airport.

Check in was a breeze. Rooms are spacious, with microwave and little fridge, very quiet in the hotel, which is a bonus. The King size beds are so comfortable that you will get a great night's sleep.

There is a small bar in the lobby which has a basic menu - food is good although a little on the pricey side. Coffee pots in the lobby til 10.00am is a very good idea.

5 mins from Pembroke Mall and 15 mins from Oceanfront. All the staff very pleasant and helpful. Would stay here again.
