The location was excellent! Close to the parks & restaurants. Hotel parking was terrible, but that's to no fault of the hotel.

Great weekend get away with my sister

When we arrived to the hotel we were greated, our bags were taken out of our cab for us and helped us inside. Our room that we were booked for was currently being serviced on so they set us up with a new one right away. The staff was all great and we had a good time. Personally my favorite thing about this place was their outdoor seating and fire-pit. It was very relaxing to come back to and just sit outside and enjoy the weather. Back home we were getting snow and it was 20 out and in Fl it was a great 67!! Will defiantly be going back and would highly recommend this place to anyone

Expected more

The person that checked us in was curt bordering on rude. Thank goodness the others we spoke with at counter were friendly.The room set up was poor. No flat space to prepare coffee. The chair barely fitted in the room. Fan in bathroom not working. Slow drains in sink and tub. Staff at restaurants were really nice.

Uncomfortable bed & gnats. Otherwise fine.

The beds were worn- typical rut in the middle. Gnats in the room were annoying- I hope they were gnats! Work out room had several broken treadmills and seemed worn. Family oriented hotel. Nice staff, good location.

Great choice for a mini vacation

I haven't been to Orlando since I was 7 and now that I am 23, i enjoyed this experience like if I was 7. The Crowne Plaza is conveniently placed. You have restaurants within walking distance on International Blvd., theme parks minutes away, other attractions like Ripley's Believe it or Not and family fun places as well. The hotel was clean and great and very understanding. I will certainly come back to this hotel. Down part is no complementary breakfast as promised.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

About a 5-10 minute drive to Universal Studios. About a 2-7 minute drive to wet and wild. Hotel provides shuttle bus service to select theme parks at no extra charge.
