Crowne Needs a Lottle Polish

The hotel was in good shape and the room was clean and comfortable. There were some things that need definite improvement however. The breakfast in the restaurant was mediocre and expensive. The WiFi signal strength in the room was extremely weak and almost unusable.The Shuttle service was so slow, we tried to use it twice and got so tired of waiting, we decided to walk.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

There are less expensive dining options up near the Convention Center. A nice walk in cool weather or very short drive.

Crowne Plaza - thank you!

Great experience! Asked for upgrade and got one to a "priority" suite, which was super clean, spacious, overlooking the James River. Staff is so friendly and accomodating. Location is central to VCU and great "touristy" stuff, too. Ended up needing to stay an extra night - NO PROBLEM. We will definitely come again!

Going back next summer

I stayed at this hotel because it was the closest hotel to kanawha park. The park has concerts on Friday evenings during the summer. I like to be able to enjoy myself without worrying about driving and looking for parking spaces. Therefore, the location was perfect being one block away from the park. I can't wait to go back next summer. Plus, the staff was very friendly and they have breakfast even though it's not included but it was good for the $12.

relaxing hotel

Hotel was relaxing. Front clerks took their time and answered all questions. They had a free washer and dryer for guests to use. The pool and hot tub was great. Close to the airport and the highways. Cheaper than most hotels. Decent place to stay.
