There was a large event going on at the Crowne Hotel this weekend that sold out the rooms, and many of the attendees of this event stayed at the Holiday Inn Express hotel. We were told that shuttle services between the two hotels ran 24 hours. The drivers for the HIE worked double time, nonstop, to help the travelers move between the two hotels. The Crowne drivers did NOTHING! They had between 2-4 shuttles parked at all times, with the drivers mulling around, and when we asked them about shuttle services, their response would always be "Someone will be here soon" meaning the HIE drivers. It was rediculous!
Also, the staff inside the Crown Hotel was NOT friendly at all. They didn't smile or greet us as we walked about (where the HIE staff were bubbly and friendly to us all weekend), and when they DID look at us, they gave us very weird and snotty looks. They seemed unhappy to be working there, or at least that weekend. It made for a very poor atmosphere. Would not recommend.
