Just a few years back, the Crowne Plaza was the (in)famous Executive West, sister hotel of the now razed Executive Inn across the street and the Galt House downtown. They claim to have spent $26 million renovating it to become the CP, but the bones of the old hotel haven't gone anywhere. Prior to renovations, the ExWest was a funky, retro treasure of 70's medieval glory. Now it's a rather bland remake. The rooms are nice, and the front desk and bell staff are great. The food and beverage underwhelms tremendous however. The Blue Horse restaurant and bar is reminiscent of a mediocre airport Holiday Inn, not a Crowne Plaza. Heck, the old Golden Targe Tea Room, Derbyshire Room and Boozeseller Lounge of the Executive West days were more appealing than things are now. Food and beverage definitely needs a tune-up here. The meeting facilities are among the largest in Kentucky and are nice. Still, the place has some work to do to get on its A-game.
