"Average. No More, No Less."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Tiny room, tiny bathroom, extremely loud air conditioner, but wasn't spending a lot of time in the room. Booked a king bed and arrived at 5 pm and was told there were no kings and that it was not guaranteed. Produced confirmation showing king bed and offered a doughnut to the desk person if she could get us what we had booked. Got king bed and she got one of our donuts.

"Nice downtown location with good customer service."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
We stayed at the Crowne Plaza for a conference. The hotel staff were friendly and very responsive. We enjoyed a great breakfast buffet and Max at the bar made great drinks and was very friendly. Nice Wednesday night cocktail hour. There are so many good restaurants downtown and we got a great walk in each night in the downtown river area and bridge.
