I've been a guest at the Crowne Plaza (formerly Radisson) Hotel for more than 20 years. Most of the time I've been booked into the Annex, a 5 story building across the plaza from the main tower. Whatever minor complaints I might have are completely overridden by the cleanliness of the place, the friendly (like family to me) staff, the excellent food (especially the breakfast buffet) and the easy access to the World Trade Center with its fine selection of restaurants. There seems to be something going on all the time in the convention center or in the ballrooms of the main tower, which just makes each stay more interesting and fun. Just one thing was an issue on the most recent visit. The shower controls in Annex room 369 are really messed up. The water would alternate between scalding hot and barely warm, and the cold water handle operated as both a cold water control and a shower shutoff valve, even though there is a separate control for that function. Very strange! Over all, I highly recommend the Crowne Plaza, now known as Plaza Suites and Hotel.
