Nice Place

I was really surprised when we got this hotel for the price we paid. Well worth the money, and I recommend getting a room on the James River side; the views are very nice.

A"hot"stay.

Our stay was ok but not great. The hotel was in a nice location for all downtown events, bars and restaurants. The staff was very nice. We had a free shuttle to where ever we needed to go in the downtown area. This helped to save a bundle on cab and parking fees. Our shuttle driver "John" was the best. Now for the negatives. The room was hot when we arrived so we turned down the heat to the lowest point. We left for the day and came back and the room was still 79 degrees. We called the front desk and they sent someone up to reset the unit. It still didn't work. I couldn't sleep that night because it was so hot. The covers on the bed were not the cleanest. I found a hair and a stain. Luckily I had brought my own blankets so I just used those. (I always bring my own blankets for that reason). The crown Royal was not the best place I have ever stayed but it worked for us because we were only there for one night
