We were VERY pleased with the responsiveness of the staff. We had some issues with A/C in guest rooms, but the hotel staff reacted very quickly and professionally to make appropriate accommodations.

The event and catering staff - while dealing with the loss of a couple of staff members - was WONDERFUL! Our wedding planners said they have NEVER worked with such a great group of folks.

You were WONDERFUL! Wish I could give you more than 5 stars. I tried but the system wouldn't allow me to do so. I have definitely been recommending you guys to corporate associates here within ExxonMobil, friends, family and other associates.

Excellent venue in all respects. Their event manager Jamie Cooper is fantastic to work with. She is very responsive, on the ball and will handle whatever you throw at her.
During the actual wedding she was excellent and made sure that everything flowed smoothly.
We could not be happier with the service provided by her. We don't hire a wedding coordinator and didn't need one.

The rest of the hotel was great too. The food was very, very good (the crab stuffed fish is to die for) and the staff overall was courteous.
Front desk was awesome, even addressing our guests by name after having met them only once.

Crowne Plaza Downtown and their level of service to us was priceless! From the first meeting, to the moment we arrived to our Bridal Suite after the reception was and absolute dream.
This is was what really made a difference: In the middle of the year before our wedding, the Event Coordinator changed. In some cases, that is a recipe for disaster. Well, Crowne Plaza made sure that all of our previous suggestions were honored and that really provided us with piece of mind. Great job!

Crowne Plaza Houston- Downtown was an amazing place to have a New Year's Eve reception. Victoria Jenkins was my contact person and she was flexible, worked with my budget and was very helpful for those nice special things a bride needs.
Secondly, you cannot beat the catering! The food was amazing, just perfect! The guest raved about the amount, taste and quality of the food. I am a very satisfied Mother of the Bride.

Crowne Plaza Houston Downtown's service was amazing! The Event Coordinator, Victoria, is so helpful and accommodating. Everyone was very professional. The food is incredible. Things get so crazy weeks before the wedding and Victoria always responded to my numerous emails and requests. She was a lifesaver! I couldn't have asked for anything more. Everything turned out perfect! I didn't have to worry a bit! We received so many compliments about the food and how beautiful the set-up was. I can't imagine having our ceremony/reception anywhere else. They were incredible!!

The food was delicious; all of our guests loved the salmon. We also really liked this venue because we felt like their prices were very reasonable. We didn't feel like they tried to nickle and dime us for everything. I would highly recommend the Crowne Plaza Downtown.
