We stay at the Crowne Plaza a few times each year for various reasons. For cyclists, it is only a few blocks biking from the end of the Seattle-to-Portland ride. For those attending events at the Rose Quarter Stadium or Memorial Colesium it is only a 5 minute walk. The convention center is also an easy 5-10 minute walk, as is the Lloyd Center shopping mall. It's also right on the street car line that takes you into downtown (and the part it's on is part of the free zone!). The hotel really has a lot to offer for the price: a pool area with big windows that satisfies the kids and the adults; a great little gym that has cardio machines, small circuit unit, a full free-weight rack & bench, and even stability balls and a kettlebell; a small food market; rentable bikes; an outdoor basketball court; and a restaurant with surprisingly good food, often locally sourced. I wanted to write this review today because, as I said, we've been coming here for several years, a few times each year, and the service, while never poor, has been merely okay. This last visit was like a whole different crew!! Every single time we had an interaction at the front desk it was like staying at a Westin property: super professional, and very engaged and pleasant. The restaurant and room service staff were also improved. In fact, one of the servers who had taken care of us the night before went out of her way to welcome us back in the morning, though we weren't in her section. Good job, management, for such a top-to-bottom improvement!
