Had a last minute overnight stay for work. I've actually been to this hotel many times for conferences etc, but have never stayed. I was looking to stay at a Holiday Inn or affiliated hotel. However with the state fair in town all my usuals were booked. So the Crowne came up in one of my searches. To my surprise they had availability and even allowed me to book at the G rate, awesome.
The check-in staff was great and acknowledged me as a priority club member. The hotel wasn't crowded, mainly due to its size. The common areas are really nice to upscale,especially for Springfield.
Now for the rooms. I stayed in a standard suite room with a king sized bed. Overall it was clean and the bed was comfortable. I will say the sheets were super crisp to the point of being a bit uncomfortable, but I can live with that. There were a few parts of the room that were dated and need updating like the mirrored closet doors and heating/cooling system.
Prob the only area I'd give the Crowne a slightly lower grade on was the bathroom tub area and sink. Both were dated, while the shower was really showing its age.
But like I said over all a great place to stay for a quick overnight or extended stay.
