Decent for Business Travel

Location was decent since my business site was right across the freeway. The breakfast could really use some work for the amount they are charging.

Ok not great

The first impression is good. The lobby is very pretty and the staff is very nice and professional. The rest is not so much. The parking lot is dark. The toilet would t flush. The room was damp. The ac takes a while to cool. While the inside of the rooms is nice and outside needs a lot of work. The crowne plaza name doesn't convey what we saw. I would t stay there again other than for the location. The hotel is two blocks away from the Texan stadium.

Convience at its best

Recently relocated to Houston in the area of the hotel. It was very convienient to get to know the area. The staff was nice and gave directions and helped me get familiar with my surroundings. Easy to get around town from here.

Rodeo trip

I've stayed in this hotel before 2 times. This was our third time. We enjoy coming to the rodeo each year. This hotel is the perfect location for attending the rodeo because it's a short walk. However, the hotel is nothing special-it's been here for quite awhile. The first time we stayed our room was in one of the outer sections. It was horrible. There was water trapped under the tub liner so it was quite dangerous to stand in the tub. We reported it upon checkout thinking they might compensate in some way. Response was-OK, we're sorry. The next time we requested a tower room. It was much better. This is the only type of room I would recommend. However, this time the room was dirty (pieces of toe nail on carpet). Also, the bathroom ceiling was about to fall in. For a hotel in this great location that benefits from guaranteed Houston Texans Football & Houston Rodeo business, major upgrades and renovations should be completed.

NEVER, EVER AGAIN!

This was probably my worst hotel experience in 20 years of business travel. This property is one of the most "tired" hotels I've ever stayed in. Rooms are very dated, plumbing is terrible (showers leak and spray water everywhere!), ventilation system is loud, room / bathroom was dirty, hallways smelled like sewage, food was terrible, very understaffed everywhere... I could go on and on but I won't. Do yourself a BIG favor and stay somewhere else! This place should be torn down! I am shocked that the Crowne Plaza earned an average rating of 3? This place is a big fat 1 at best. Run away!!

NEVER AGAIN

Directions to the room were non existent. We wandered around til we just happened upon it. The room smelled like smoke even though it was a non smoking room, so did the towels. The fridge was not plugged in and all the plugs in the room were so loose that we couldnt get any of the phone chargers to work. And talk about sweltering heat. The ac was off when we got to the room. We turned it on and it smelled like a dirty bathroom. At about midnight the room next door came home. Yelling, screaming, playing loud music and setting out on the balcony drinking. Then they started walking around on the roof. We called the front desk and they sent security which only made them make even more noise. I guess at 130 am another room called and security came back and banged on the door and they finally stopped being so loud around 2am. Beer cans all over the place. We wont be staying there again.
