Ask about the back roads to get around International drive and up to I-4 so you don't have to be stuck in traffic.

Clean & modern

This hotel is completely up to date with tasteful decorations. The mini-suite room was well appointed and a comfortable place to return to after a day of sightseeing. The hotel is not a typical mega-hotel like found in other Orlando locations. It's human sized and thus easy to get around. The location is perfect too. I would happily return here.

Great getaway!

Our stay at the Crowne Plaza was nothing less than perfect! The staff was courteous & pleasant & the rooms were clean & cozy. Another bonus was it's close proximity to a variety of restaurants, malls, and to all the parks. We will definitely be back!

Disney Vacation

The hotel wasn't too bad, nor the location. Bad thing is that if you go to Disney is not that close by. There aren't many food choices around, go to Kissimmee to have better food selection as well closer to Disney. But food could be pricey either in downtown Orlando and Kissimmee. Renting a car is a MUST!!!

All I needed/wanted and a bit more

It's was comfortable, quiet, convenient, excellent location, and the staff , from management to the valet , was attentive and helpful. I mention the valet because he gave a personal assist with our transport to a go Cart recreation location and gave us insight to the location through his personal experience there. Pablo, the shuttle driver was arranged for us, made special efforts for us. At check out , the desk attendant gave us the advantage of the VIP services the hotel offered which gave us coffee for our ride to the airport and reduced our total for our amenities we charged during our stay. We had no designs on returning just because we wanted to go elsewhere for the next vacation. However, Orlando has so much to offer and now we have a place to stay to ensure a fantastic experience. We didn't rent a car because a friend was supposed to join us but cancelled. The Crown Plaza Orlando made it very easy for us without a vehicle. Clean , comfortable room, good food when ordering room service, and extremely quiet. I can't say enough good things about my trip to Orlando and crown plaza universal
