Lansing, Michigan / Crowne Plaza Lansing West

November 2016, Weekday, 1-night, King corner guestroom 436

This was our first stay at the Crowne Plaza in Lansing, Michigan. In fact, I did not recall knowing this hotel is not too far from the Lansing airport the last time we had stayed in a Lansing airport hotel. I will definitely choose this hotel again the next time I have a Lansing flight, or need to stay in the area.

Platinum perks and check-in

We arrived a bit before check-in time of 3:00 p.m. The employee who completed the check-in process provided excellent assistance, and she went out of her way to meet our needs. I needed a ride to the airport around 5:00 a.m., and the hotel shuttle does not normally operate that early. She checked the schedule to see if there was an airline crew scheduled for the next morning, and was able to schedule a ride time for me that met both our needs. We received an upgrade to a king corner room (I requested this), and the 600 bonus points for Platinum members.

King corner guestroom 436

This guestroom contained a king size bed, night stands, desk and chair, soft chair with footstool, and a large flatscreen TV on an armoire. A small fridge, microwave, ice bucket, glass glasses, coffee mugs, and coffeemaker with supplies, were located in the armoire. The bed was super comfy, and the sheets were good quality.

A large vanity and a closet with mirrored doors were located left of the armoire. The closet contained two robes, along with hangers, and a folding luggage rack. Bath amenities were provided on the vanity. The towels were good quality. The toilet and tub/shower combination were located in a small room at the end of the vanity.

This guestroom has a connecting room door, which I did not realize until we got to the room. I do not know if all of the corner rooms have a connecting door. The rest of the guestroom was fabulous, and noise from the guest in the room next door was minimal. We could hear him on his telephone for a short time in the early evening, and that was all. We did not hear any outside noise from the guestroom, nor noise from the hallway. The Internet connection speed in the guestroom was good.

Pool area

There is an inside pool and whirlpool tub at this hotel. The water and air temperature was comfortable. The area was spacious and clean. There are several tables with chairs located just inside the entrance overlooking the pool. The whirlpool tub is located around the corner and not visible from the seats.

Additional seating is available outside the pool room (labeled in the photo above). The swimming pool is visible from the outside seats.

Business center

A couple of computers and a printer were available in the lobby. I printed a document from one of the computers during our stay. A stapler and pens were available in this area.

This hotel was comfortable, well maintained, and clean. Several seats were available in the lobby near the business center. Additional seating was available across from the elevators near the restaurant. Although this hotel does not have an executive lounge or floor like the Crowne Plaza near the GRR airport in Grand Rapids, Michigan, it is a much nicer hotel--clean, comfortable, excellent staff!
