This member of the IHG Hotels Group operates more than 395 hotels worldwide and expects to open 120 more in the next few years. The Crowne Plaza brand caters primarily to business travelers with expansive meeting facilities, email and Internet access, full-service business centers and perks for group travel. However, leisure travelers will find their needs met as well thanks to the properties' convenient locations and long lists of amenities, which often include in-house restaurants and fitness centers. Crowne Plaza also stands out as a brand (and on our Best Hotels in the USA, Best Hotels in Mexico and Best Hotels in Canada rankings) thanks to its unique customer service programs. For example, the Crowne Plaza Sleep Advantage program — designed to help guests maximize on zzz's — includes aromatherapy kits and a guaranteed wake-up call within five minutes of your requested time (or the room is free). And because of the chain's association with IHG Hotels Group, Crowne Plaza guests can redeem IHG Rewards Club points at any property. The Crowne Plaza properties that appear on U.S. News' Best Hotels rankings are listed below.
