    the rooms were clean and very nice. no fridge in the room though. The bathrooms were small but it helped that the sink was outside the bathroom. A mirror in bathroom would have been helpful. the property itself was nice, but nothing special. There's a nightclub in the hotel and the noise from the music (especially the bass) made it very hard to sleep till well past 1:30am when I finally fell asleep. the workers were very nice and did what they could ..

    Where do I start? I stayed for a 4 night business trip. The first night was fine, clean room. When a business associate arrived, she was given a Cabana Suite. BEWARE of the Cabana Suite. It has an external entrance. For safety reasons, I traded room with my female associate. Big mistake.. The room had holes in the couch (I couldn't believe the condition of this room). It should have been taken out of circulation until repaired. There were several large unknown stains on the carpet and the smell ... Read more

    My boyfriend booked this hotel for my birthday because he has had great experiences at other Crowne Plaza hotels. Unfortunately, this one did not live up to the reputation. The sheets were literally like paper. They were too small for the bed which supposed to be a king but was clearly a queen. The staff was not friendly or helpful. The bar/lounge became a local nightclub on the weekends so parking was impossible and the lobby was filled with young partiers until the wee hours of the mornin... Read more

    We were there for six days and never had any major issues. There was one issue with our booking (requested a king bed and was booked for two double-beds), so they put us in a cabana to make up for it, which was awesome. The breakfast is a little pricey ($30 for 2 people I believe) and one of the elevators was out of service the whole time, but it wasn't really a big deal. However, the bed was VERY hard. It may have been brand new, but almost no give when you sit or lay on it (but the pillows wer... Read more

    Up to date and clean hotel. Room had no fridge, very small trash cans and shower stall only. Room we had was not really designed for a family vacation stay but we made it work. Very clean, Mojito restaurant downstairs is really loud when they have something going on at night. Could hear the music from the 6th floor in our room. They also shut down the parking lot in the front for valet which is a bit confusing getting turned around if you are unaware. Pool area was very clean and we basically ha... Read more

    Welcomed promptly and well. Suite was clean & everything worked. Lights not bright enough in the bathroom. No tub in bathroom and I couldn't switch to a room with a tub. Mark was very helpful & could have gotten one the second night. I have stayed in hotels hundreds of times through the years & this is only the second time this has happened to me so I didn't think to specify a tub. Maybe should be a question on the on-line check in form?

    I recently stated at the location for a work trip, and had a pleasant stay. The manager was very helpful, the shuttle drivers were great, the pool is nice, and the room was clean and updated. The only think that I found frustrating is the lack of microwaves. Everyone on my floor had a mini fridge, but we had to share a microwave that's located in the lounge near the elevator. I'm sure this is probably because they expect guests will be eating most meals out- but if you're there for a longer stay... Read more

    Had a very nice room on the 11th floor. Make sure you face the front of the hotel. The view of the bay and bridge was incredible, I couldn't keep my eyes off it. The furnishings were a little more upscale than average and the decorating was very attractive. The location is very close to a lot of things and there is a shuttle bus but I didn't use it so I don't know how far it goes. Generally although it is close to nice shopping it's a half hour or more to better beaches, the casino or busch gard... Read more

I stayed here while attending a Christian Education conference for 5 nights. We had a group of 47 people and the staff did a wonderful job of accommodating our needs.

    I wanted to make special mention of Marc at the front desk. We had a couple of issues with our reservation and were expecting to just accept it and move on. When I casually mentioned it to Marc he immediately took responsibility to resolve. This hotel and the brand in general should hope that all of their staff members are as attentive as Marc was. I will absolutely stay again.
