            Asked the person at the front desk if they gave me the triple A rate she said no. Gave me a free breakfast that I already paid for on line. Room had spider wed's in the window, also found ants in the bathroom. 1st time staying at a Crown Plaza, don't think I would stay again.

            Convenient location within walking distance of major attractions and restaurants.

            It is complicated to reach by car if you are not familiar with Richmond's road system.

            This hotel was in a great location for my visit! Whenever we needed more towels the staff was really friendly about getting them to us.

            Check out staff was not as friendly and we had to pay for parking....

            The location was great. We wanted to be able to walk to restaurants for dinner and the bars at night. We also wanted to have a view of the James river. The room was very neat and the beds super comfortable. I had read reviews complaining about thin walls, but I did not experience this. We had neighbors but only knew it after seeing them enter their room. Our room was very quiet and I felt as though we were the only ones on the floor. There are so many great restaurants within walking distance and we were not disappointed with any. The staff was super friendly and accommodating. Kenya was there 2 of the 3 days and she was very helpful. I also enjoyed the proximity to Maymont park. We went to lunch at Sullivan's and then took a stroll through the park. The weather was perfect and the park was beautiful. I intend on revisiting this beautiful city.

            I had read in past reviews that the spa was non functioning and that a manager had commented saying it would be fixed but it wasn't during our stay months later. I have a hunch it may have been ignored. The pool was on par, but it would have been nice to have used the spa. Additionally, on the day we were to check out, we were awoken to the knocking of a cleaning lady. This happened two more times before we checked out at 1030. I felt rushed to leave and wish the cleaning staff had waited until 12 to start the cleaning of our room since checkout wasn't supposed to be until noon.

            The confort of the room and spa. The location downtown. Quietness

            The food served at the cafeteria

            We stayed at the Crowne Plaza to break a long driving trip from Charleston, sc to Philadelphia. It is about 6 hours from Charleston leaving only 4 hours more to Philadelphia. We have stayed at other hotels in Richmond in other years. We liked the hotel very much, particularly Ed the van driver who took us to a re3stuarant of our choice. We also liked the breakfast very much as well as the free overnight parking which was very important to us with a fully loaded car.

            We were unable to adjust the heat to make it lower and it was at 74 while we prefer sleeping the high 50's or low 60's
