“Very pleasant and welcoming”
Reviewed 18 April 2012

The slowly deteriorating Crowne Plaza is still delightful , with a very nice lobby, although the absence of a proper restaurant is a problem. The Sports Bar is a bit noisy. There are good restaurants close by however. Fifth floor executive floor facilities are good. Very good Reception staff.
Very keen maintenance staff eventually were able to repair our difficult wardrobe door and tried to advise us on how to get quieter noise from the new air con system by allowing it to settle into a cycle. It was still a bit fierce.
Very nice outdoor swimming pool.

Room Tip: It can be busy with visiting sports teams and the elevators can be busy so it can be difficult to ca...

Crowne Plaza Fort Myers is a great hotel with a ton of meal options and amenities nearby. There's a shopping center 500 feet away...great pool...comfortable beds...and friendly staff. While this isn't the newest hotel in the area, the service and value make up for it.

Arrived at Crowne Plaza and was pleasantly welcomed to the hotel, my room was nicely decorated and very clean and quiet. Had cocktails at the bar one evening - - service was terrific; breakfast on the 5th floor attended by a lovely and welcoming woman who is very accommodating. I would highly recommend this hotel which is conveniently located near all the Bell Tower shops and restaurants and movie theatre all within walking distance of the hotel. Who could ask for more than that?

Room Tip: I totally enjoyed being on the 5th floor. If available I would suggest requesting a room there. Br...

My wife and I stayed in this hotel between March 28th and April 5th 2012. We are very happy with the staff working in the hotel and their services. We enjoyed our stay and had a great time in Fort Myers.

Special thanks to the folks for finding our iPad after we left the hotel and sending it back to us in Canada. You guys are great!

Room Tip: By the way, we recommend you to book you room with breakfast, it’s excellent.

The food you find up here at the Club Level is more of a dinner than snacks. Stacey is always so friendly. The Gym is excellent and the wings at shoeless joes is out of this world. This is a older hotel , but a diamond in the ruff.

The hotel is located within walking distance to many restaurants, bars and upscale shops. It is very close to the hospital and airport. The hotel was very clean everywhere and service was above average when I encountered a problem and in the restaurant/pub onsite. The gym is good, not great, but you will find a heavy duty, multi function cable machine in good working order, hand weights up to 30lbs only. A few treadmills and steppers round out the gym. The outdoor pool is small and very pleasant due to the landscaping and waterfall drowning out other noises. Club level has it's own small area for continental breakfast and evening cocktails. Breakfast has no protein foods at all, not even hard boiled egg. Evening has a cash bar and cocktail snacks. When breakfast and cocktail hours are over on the club floor that area becomes dark and I thought it possible some weirdo could hide out there, so that made me feel a bit unsafe. I would stay again, but I would not stay on club level, due to the lackluster food options and side room off the club floor that is dark and creepy when service is not going on.
