Unlike the surrounding hotels that cater to tourists and kids, this hotel is primarily a business hotel which means it is quiet, efficient, and straightforward. No extra "resort" fees for parking, wifi, etc. The hotel restaurant is quite good with actual cooked food, not microwaved frozen stuff. We had a room that faced Bristol and were concerned about noise but...

I recently spent three days at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, during a staycation of sorts. The hotel grounds were very well maintained. I found my hotel room to be comfortable. The food at the on-site restaurant was delicious. Most of all, I was impressed with the hotel staff. The staff members I encountered were all incredibly polite, accommodating and eager...

I stayed here for a conference, which was well hosted by the hotel. But the real draw was the wonderful hotel! All the staff was so friendly (thank you Javier, Sam, and all the front desk people!), and the restaurant was EXCELLENT. Great food, and generous happy hour specials (late night, too), and the service was outstanding. Jeremy was our...

From the moment we walked,in Javier was more than gracious. He was so positive, so welcoming, and made our trip so comfortable. We then were able to have most enjoyable lunch in the tavern.
