    Very good

    I really appreciated the shuttle service. It was especially perfect for the occasion, since we were unfamiliar with the local area. Staff members were especially nice. Although I didn't use the Internet service, it is a plus to make it available for tenants/guests.

    I really didn't like the idea of checking in after 4:00 p.m. and then having to check out by 11:00 a.m. the next day. It isn't fair to the tenant/guest. This isn't really a 24 hour deal. You're paying for a day but only getting 19 hours. I don't think the hotel should charge its tenants/guests a parking fee to park in the lot if they are patronizing and/or staying at the hotel and park their own vehicle. It isn't fair. I think the comforters on the bed could be a different color. The white just looks plain boring and a burgundy would make a more inviting color.

    The bed, it was the most comfortable I've slept in.

    I just stayed at the Crowne Plaza in Melbourne and the hotel and staff were off the chain. They were superb. The one in downtown, not so much. We had booked the room due to going to an Orlando Preds game in Jacksonville. We requested early check in due to the game, they did not accommodate us and then when we checked in at 2:00 A.M. the gave us a dirty room, then switched us to another room that had a broken glass in the bathroom and throughout the hotel room. Not a good experience at all, other then the bed.

    Good location only if you go by car - close to highway, spacious car parking for free.

    The Crowne Plaza Hotel Downtown was located perfectly for event at the Amway Center. Transportation offered by the hotel to and from the Amway Center was great. The valet service and front desk were both very helpful with local restaurants and shopping information. For a downtown event we would return to the Crowne Plaza Hotel Downtown.

    We did have a bit of a communication problem with the hotel transportation to return to the hotel. We were told to be in one location outside the Amway Center, but were told they were waiting on us at another location. We called, no answer. We had to take a cab. The accommodations were great other than the air conditioning. Our room was always warm. Air conditioner kept turning off. Had to keep getting up to turn back on. Had no way of cooling our room off. So this made sleeping very uncomfortable. We were there in early Feb. Summertime would be unbearable.

    We were originally supposed to stay at another Hotel. The other Hotel over booked for the two concerts that were a night apart. Thanks to and crowne plaza to reacting to a unpleasant experience and turning it into a pleasant one. This was a xmas present for my fiancee. The staff at Crowne Plaza are great but I do have to point out two staff members that wen't above and beyond Megan at the front desk and Kathy in parking. You have a wonderful staff and hotel. Sincerely, Vickey Baker

    Hotel building is nice. 5 min walking to LYNX central bus station who can take you anywhere in Orlando.

    Too near to I-4 highway and railway, this means noise all day, like train honking at 2am. Room balconies are all locked. Found a used towel from a previous guest in the bathroom.
