I stayed at the Crowne Plaza on New Years Eve.
The hotel is a bit dated but clean. The lobby is a beautiful old restored train station with tons of personality. The hotel part is a glass and steel rectangle without any.
I felt it was overpriced. It was NYE so I can understand a higher rate, but Pensacola isn't that great for NYE. The hotel is located directly across the street from the civic center and an easy walk to the main commercial area downtown (15 - 20 minutes).
The staff isn't very friendly. They didn't really make any attempts to ask if they could help us out finding our way around town. The map they provided was a bad photocopy of a bad map of the city. They weren't unfriendly, just not hospitable.
Unless downtown or the civic center is a big part of your visit to Pensacola, I'd seek a better value elsewhere. You'll need a car in Pensacola anyway so you're going to be driving no matter what.
