The Crowne Plaza Oklahoma City is a three star hotel located eight miles from downtown. The hotel advertises itself as a convenient suburban location. Guests will find both business district attractions like the Ford Center and family attractions like Frontier City to be within 10 - 15 minutes drive from the hotel.
The hotel caters primarily to mid-scale business travelers and family travelers. The building is a little older, and as a result the hotel is in the midst of undergoing an extensive floor by floor renovation. They appear to be starting from the top, but for updates on progress it is best to call the front desk. Typically the front desk can also accommodate requests to be placed in one of the renovated rooms. Travelers in the updated rooms do not seem to have many complaints, and the view from the 7th floor rooms is highly prized.
The Crowne Plaza Oklahoma City has a nice pool area, with a hot tub available. There is a health club and a business center in the lobby. The breakfast buffet is sometimes free and sometimes not free - the hotel appears to be experimenting with this. Groups will likely want to take this into consideration when booking as the price of the buffet is upwards of $10 per person.
Travelers reported that using Priceline and other discounting services, they have been able to get rates as low as 30 - 40 % of the official rack rates. Naturally this is never guaranteed, but budget travelers may want to keep this in mind when looking at the hotel. Seasonal packages and event packages are also offered by the hotel, so watch for these promotions throughout the year.
