"Great Hotel But Parking Is Ridiculously Expensvie!"
This hotel is really nice, clean, and great food, but the overnight parking is outrageous and it isn't mentioned in the hotel description on here.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not what I expected"
When I first arrived I was given the wrong room however I didn't realize it until the next morning. The staff quickly corrected the mistake and switched my rooms. I feel that all rooms should be equipped with a fridge. I am a diabetic and I carry medication that needs to be refrigerated and the room I was initially put in did not have a fridge so I […] had to leave my medications out. I also feel that the location of the hotel was out of the way and not necessarily in a good neighborhood. I also felt that the room I stayed in, the room I had reserved, has small and did not match what I was paying for it. I've stayed at other hotels and paid the same amount for a room the size of a small apartment. I expected a much bigger room for what I paid. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just a night close to downtown"
Overall my stay was fine, although the air conditioner barely blow any cold air when I has it set at its coldest. The shuttle service to and from downtown was a plus. And the room was big and clean..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Went here for Valentine's Day with my girlfriend and the stay was amazing. I bring a up flashlight to hotels to check the room before I get comfortable and this hotel room was perfect no unseen stains no dirt everything was spotless the staff was wonderful and room service was fast and friendly. I have nothing bad to say about this hotel except you […] can't open the balcony doors so you don't jump. Would recommend this place to anyone staying in the Orlando area close to downtown and the am way. Amazing stay Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Don't Use the Bathroom"
Extremely strange to have an open air window from the bedroom to the bathroom. After an incredible night out, I got to have my girlfriend listen to all of my bowels the next morning. Unfortuntately, I had to listen to hers as well. Extremely embarrassing. I cannot for the life of my understand why someone would design this, extremely uncomrtable circumstances. […] Avoid the suite unless you have been married for 20 years and are used to being embarrassed. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect overnight stay"
We were in downtown Orlando for business and extremely exhausted from driving up from Miami. The hotel was very clean and our standard room with L shape coach was very spacious. We left our iPhone somewhere from valet to the free shuttle they offer every half hour. The valet woman found it and brought it to where we were. When we left messages about […] checking the room the hostess called back promptly. The area has a Salvation Army next to it, but our business partners always put all their guests in this hotel and I can see why. We didn't eat there so can't rate food service.

"unexpected stay in Orlando"
My girlfriend got re-routed to Orlando on a late night flight. So I drove from Tampa and needed a room and wanted one near downtown Valet was great; Put my car upfront while I took a quick shower. Came downstairs to go to the airport and it was right there. We were given a suite, which was a free upgrade and pure luck. Granite countertops w/ stools, […] nice kitchenette and living room. Bedroom was a good size. The negative about the bathroom was the "cowboy" doors and an window type opening w/shutters. It had a shower and a tub and was clean.We called the front desk to get a cab and instead of calling one for us, they gave us the cab phone number. Breakfast was included in our room and was decent.

"A/C was not working"
We called at the front desk twice A/C was not working. According the person at the front desk it was already set (heater) and can't be change due to cold me weather temperature. If they give assigned you a room facing to the highway get prepare to hear noises like cars and the train.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great spot for Bowl game"
Room was very nice, the L-couch was great for watching TV, napping, and the it was a pullout sleeper as well. The free shuttle left every 1/2 hour and would take us anywhere within a couple miles of hotel, this was GREAT since cabs seemed a little expensive in Orlando. Shuttle drivers were awesome and very courteous, even gave us suggestions on places […] to eat. Front desk staff was very helpful -- I was trying to print my boarding passes for an early flight and another person was using the complimentary workstation (for a very long time), I told the front desk and they let me use one of their computers at the desk (not in use) to print out my boarding pass -- very helpful!! The pool looked great, but we didn't use it. And the bar had a delicious BLT. All in all, a very nice stay and I would definitely stay here again if I wanted to be downtown Orlando.

"Good overnight stay"
The hotel was easy to get to, although the valet parking was expensive as typical, there was a shuttle to all of the downtown sites. We did wish it ran later given the late night city life. The only issue was after a new years celebration, we called to confirm breakfast and were told it ended by 10am. Woke up earlier than desired to find they had it […] till 12! The restaurant staff ignored us after we let them know we were using a breakfast coupon that was part of the hotel package purchased. Good hotel, bad cafe service.

"Walking Distance to Amway"
This hotel was very close by to Amway Center which was our main reason for staying. But the noise from the very close by freeway was ridiculous, We were on the 12th floor but the noise made it seem like we were smack dab next to the freeway. The hotel needs thicker windows (hurricane proof).Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Average hotel, great location."
First I would like to say that I've stayed at this hotel once before and it was a nice experience. This time around, not so much. I understand that there was an event going on and the staff tried to accommodate everyone in the best way possible, but I got a room on the 2nd floor with a broken ac unit. It took me literally 3 times to call the front desk […] before they sent someone up. When the maintenance guy came up, he opened up the unit and said it was frozen and that we should leave the ac at 75 until it worked again (Assuming that we were the ones who turned it all the way down). We were without ac for the whole 2 days that we were there! How uncomfortable was that? VERY! The hotel staff should've checked all the ac units and made sure they are put back at a certain degree before new guest arrive. I asked for a new room and was told that every room was booked, which is understandable, so they offered to not charge me for 1 of the 2 cars for the 2 days that i stayed there. Couple days later, I checked my bank statement, they still charged me for both cars for both days. Therefore, I will not be staying at the Crowne Plaza Hotel again.

From the moment we pulled our car up to register I knew this was going to be a great visit. The valet drivers were very courteous and engaging. The front counter staff were equally as friendly. We were taken to our room that was absolutely gorgeous with it's upgraded furnishings. The view was of I-4 and surprisingly, the traffic noise was not an issue. […] The housekeeping staff were friendly and very accommodating as well as the dining room staff. Needless to say, we will visit this hotel again and most definitely recommend to our friends and relatives. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice Hotel, minutes from the Amway center"
It was a very nice experience and the room with the L shaped couch in it was very nice and spacious as well! There is a nice restaurant downstairs and they also offer a complimentary shuttle anywhere within a 3 mile radius which will easily get you to the Amway center or the bar scene on wall street or orange street (where there are about 30-40 different […] bars/clubs.

Plan to have parking issues, there is not an obvious way to enter the parking lot. Only after being confronted with secured arm will you realize that you need to reverse go back to the entrance, get out of your vehicle and ask someone to open the gate for you. They'll want a lot of personal information prior to granting you permission. the whole time […] your car will be idling blocking the passage of other vehicles. I personally witnessed this with every vehicle that attempted to park Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

The room and cleanliness was great however the service was far from acceptable. The front desk gave us brochures for local food places. We ordered pizza from Paninos over the phone and paid over the phone with a credit card. When the pizza arrived the delivery man said we did not pay yet and wanted the credit card again. The delivery guy then took a […] picture of the credit card with his phone claiming he needed it to process payment. We called Paninos and they would not help us. We called the front desk and they said they couldn't help us claiming they were management and still couldn't help us. How can you give us brochures for places in town that do business the way Paninos did? The so called guy at the front desk was not helping us and refused to give us the number for the hotels corporate office. Needless to say we were very very upset with the service and what happened. Will never stay at another crowne plaza again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Crowne Plaza Orlando - Downtown DearJon, We are trurly sorry to hear fo the experience you received regarding the pizza company and hotel service while trying to resolve the issue. Unfortunately, we do not have any connection with the payment when it comes to outside vendors, but we kindly provide brochures if inquired about one. We have spoken to our team to ensure if this occurs again, we will certainly handle it differently. Panino is one of our best recommendation for pizza and we have never experience this before. Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback and we do hope to have you stay with us again for a better experience. Regards, Catherine B. Assistant Director of Guest Services

"Nice Staff, Loud Room, Convenient"

"Nice Hotel, Great Location for Downtown Activities"
After reading some past reviews about noise I was a little concerned after booking my reservation, but, it was not a problem (so don't let it interfere when deciding if you should stay). We were put on the second floor with our room being one of the closest facing the highway and across from the vending/ice machine area (thinking all the time we're […] in for it) but much to my surprise noise really wasn't an issue (you could here people using the ice machine). It was busy when we went to check in, the design of the lobby made it crowed and awkward as people come off the elevators and have to walk right through the check in line. Everything is just like the pictures. Staff is friendly and attentive. Bar, restaurant (small in design, like lobby) . I had experienced a small problem with the ice machine, when I went down to let the front desk, the maintenance man was incredible, he came back up to the floor all the time apologizing for the inconvenience and that I would most certainly have my ice..lol...wish I had gotten his name... he really deserves recognition. Oh, and I did hear a train late at night but is was so faint, I thought it was on the TV. We normally stay on I Drive when in Orlando, (which is alot) and I have to say . this hotel..although not crazy about some of its design, is worth the stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice hotel, toilet was broken though"
We arrived late, and went out on the town before using the room. Upping getting back around 3am, we found the toilet running continuously. I had to jiggle the handle several times for it to fill correctly. We did not want to swith rooms at 3 am, so we just dealt with jiggling the handle. Also, at 945am we got a knock at the door for our parking fee […] of $15. Not a pleasant way to wake up, after going to be at 3 after messing with a toilet that ran non stop!

"Where do I even start..."
A limit of characters isn't enough to explain my horrible stay at the crowne plaza. If you like ghettos, this is the hotel for you. There was a homeless man sleeping against the parking lot fence, it's literally a block from bad areas. Take away the bad area, and our stay was still a disaster, they offered multiple beverages on their specialty menu […] and didn't even have the correct ingredients to make them. There was hair in our shower upon arrival, and the toilet paper was never replaced, even though there was an empty roll left. It's right by amtrak stations, so if you enjoy train horns blaring at 2am you have it here. The balconies you see in the picture aren't accessible, it's for show. The hallways smelt of some odor I can't describe, and the pool isn't as described either. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
