        The staff were very nice and accommodating. The breakfast buffet was delicious and offered plenty of options.

        The bathroom fan came on every time you turned on the light switch in the bathroom. It was extremely annoying, especially if you did not want the fan to run. The fan for the heater ran continuously, even when the thermostat was set to the "auto" function and a temperature was selected. It was loud and, again, annoying.

        Nothing, really

        Staff not friendly, no decent food, prices very high for this kind of service and goods, do not like the neighborhood, the whole city is not tourist-friendly -- no information. It is not tourist place at all.

        Thought the tap room was nice and the bar person was very nice.

        A little hallway noise. I was given a handicap room unbeknownst to me but didn't bother changing. It should have been brought to my attention at checkin

        The hotel was comfortable, but it just wasn't as nice as I assumed it would be for the money. Would not stay there again, nor would I recommend it to anyone.

        We were bumped from our room due to a "flood from a broken pipe" which may or may not be the truth as told to us by the manager. The alternate accommodations provided were 30 minutes in the wrong direction of downtown, where we had an early morning meeting. Due to no longer being on the Metro line, we had to call a cab for transportation to our meeting. The cab never showed, and we were 20 minutes late for a very important client meeting--all because the Crown Plaza failed to provide rooms that we had reserved in advance. We are extremely angry at the Crowne Plaza Alexandria and will never attempt another stay.

        The room with a view was worthwhile, convenient location close to airport & Alexandria, the bed was comfortable and the pillows were soft. The bartender was surprisingly warm and welcoming.

        When I first came in the staff seemed like they had more important things to do than to greet myself and my lady. Not so much as eye contact. There were no other customers, and after standing there for a few moments, we had to greet them. While we were staying there, a protest took place in front of the hotel over discrimination against Syrians. What kind of place is this? The hotel looked older and more drab than I expected and did not seem to live up to its colorful photos. The $20.00/night parking pass was not mentioned with the booking information. There are other hotels in the area which would have been a lower price for what would seem to be a better experience.

        Food,bar, room size, cleaniness

        The process of getting in my room, I was at front desk way too long. I already had a reservation booked online I even brought my laptop with me to prove that I did. They said they had a different order number that I had but I still came up in system. A line was building behind me while she was playing on computer. Then I was asked for credit card to pay for it again and the deposit for more money that they claimed was for damages. I ended up paying cash for a room I prebooked days ago because they couldn't use my card for everything. About 10 mins later I finally got my room key. I was so frustrated, that took way to long. I was relieved with all my heavy bags on me when I got to my room and passed out on comfy bed.

        The shuttle bus was not able to pick us up from the center of town after midnight. We called at about 1:00pm and I was told that the driver had gone home for the day:(

        Cleaness, close to the river. Alexandria is a very nice neighborhood.

        The shuttle from / to the airport is not properly dimensioned, I had to wait 1 hour to get it. Marriott and Sheraton have multiple shuttles, while Crowne shares just 1 with Holiday Inn.

        We had the Breakfast Plan, which was an OUTSTANDING breakfast buffet. The buffet staff was excellent, courteous, attentive and we would highly recommend it!! Our room had a gorgeous view of the Potomac River, with a beautiful landscape of lights in early morning and evening. We intend to return most definitely.

        The young lady at the front desk who checked us into the hotel about 11 am was less than welcoming, and less than helpful. We had five pieces of luggage, which is quite a bit to handle, and we had to beg for a luggage carrying machine (on rollers) to help ourselves up to our room. We finally found a machine outside the hotel at the curb. This young lady made no effort at all to assist locating any machine, or personnel to help. She is not an asset to this beautiful hotel. All other staff was helpful and courteous.
