This is a big place! A little difficult to negotiate the entry - there are driveways to nowhere if you don't pay attention - but wow! The Crown Plaza is the destination for executives and families accustomed to the best. Wonderful staff, comfortable beds, great food, too. I think we'll stay a few days and work from here!

Nice hotel with an exceptionally friendly and accommodating staff. They really stood out. Restaurant on site and it was quite good. Clean comfortable rooms. Great executive floor. Plenty of parking. Nice quiet location and only minutes from the airport. I have stayed at the Crown Plaza Cleveland Airport in Middleburg Heights many times. This hotel is much nicer and is...

This is an older but solid hotel. Our room was clean and quiet. We stayed on the 3rd floor and all the way to the end of the hallway. Less foot traffic there and away from the elevators. The shower had a nice strong spray and plenty of fluffy towels were provided. I liked the curtain clip provided to keep...

My husband and I just stayed at the Crowne Plaza Cleveland South in Independence, Ohio.

We came to this hotel looking for safe place to stay. Check in was easy. Rooms were super clean. There isn't a free breakfast but for the rate we got for the hotel it was ok. There is a restaurant attached to hotel and close by food locations. It was overall a great stay.

1. I requested a room that would be as quiet as possible since I was traveling with a 1 year old and 3 year old. I have no idea if this occurred or not, because I have no idea if property was filled. My guess is that it was not, because half the parking lot was empty. What was frustrating...

This hotel is a cheap 2 star trying to be a 3.5 star..... but needs to try harder. The lobby and lounge look really nice, but the hallway was creepy and dingy, the doors were a hideous shade of brown and thin as a board.

Wedding plans cancelled with 2 weeks remaining before reservation! Hotel was directly requested to refund by Travelocity and refused for two night stay costs. I personally never do business with chains that handle service requests like this. It will obviously show up in many other service accommodations other than this if you do!

Hotel was in great location. Hotel was very clean and besides being older, it is very well taken care of. Loved the pool and hot tub. The staff were great. Only downside is the parking. you either have to park at the bottom or the top of the hotel.

A friend and I stayed here so we could see a concert in Cleveland. It's only about 15 minutes away from downtown so the location is perfect. The hotel was clean and the beds were comfortable.
