Great value for the price!

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: would like a thicker comforter.
The front desk staff were excellent! The pool was wonderful and the location was perfect for our needs. I would stay here again in the future.

The Crowne Plaza Hamilton is great value for your money

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
After a very long drive and an early morning arrival we were treated with dignity, respect and understanding by the check in staff. They were very kind and even offered to help us find a restaurant that was still open at such and early hour. The room was clean, quiet and cozy. The bed was firm and the pillows were fluffy. We would recommend this hotel to anyone who has a stop over in Hamilton.

The hotel room was very clean and updated. The bed was extremely comfortable. The staff was very helpful and friendly and gave us great recommendations for dinner. Breakfast was good, but their restaurant was not open due to remodeling.

Close to downtown core

I booked the hotel for a night so I could go out on the town safely. Staff was friendly, room was clean. Only complaints would be that they forgot the chicken on my ceaser, but I can attribute it to my mumbling.

Bad neighborhood and unpleasant staff

We came in after dark and the neighborhood was enough to have me concerned (and I'm in the Detroit area regularly!). The hotel desk staff was snippy and unhelpful. Someone had spilled a bucket of ice in the elevator and no one bothered to clean it up. Something in our room started leaking in the night and when we woke up the carpet was soaking wet. When I mentioned the leak on checkout the front desk didn't so much as apologize. Don't stay here!

Nothing special. Just ok.

This hotel was very conveniently located to the James Street Art District in Hamilton. Other than location, and a friendly staff, it was "average" in most repects.

great staff

Pros: Free Internet, security was great
Cons: Nothing close
We were in the area coming back from visiting African Lion Safari. The hotel was great, great security, etc. Unfortunately, there was nothing open near them - not much to do during the afternoon within walking distance. We were able to jet out in our car though and get dinner and a movie. It may be different if there was a festival going on.
