Review Summary


  • Outdoor pool is a nice reprieve from Dallas heat
  • Walking distance to Dallas nightlife and attractions
  • Popular restaurant and nightclub on-site
  • Comfortable beds with crisp linens
  • Clean, well-maintained building
  • Geared mostly toward business travelers, with ample meeting space


  • Generic, uninspired large-chain design
  • Sterile business environment
  • Wi-Fi for a fee
  • Fitness center is mediocre

Bottom Line

The 292-room Crowne Plaza Hotel Dallas Downtown is the ordinary business suit of the hotel world. Almost everything about the property feels unremarkable, from the clean but boring pool to the sophisticated yet sleepy lobby. While the generic hotel chain decor doesn't hurt the appearance of the rooms, it doesn't help either. But cleanliness and ample space help make up for the run-of-the-mill look, as does the hotel's prime location in the heart of Downtown Dallas. The one boredom-redeeming trait for some, perhaps, is the hotel's restaurant, Thrive -- a chic, modern space, serving upscale New American cuisine, that doubles as one of the area's most popular nightclubs later in the evening.

Map of Crowne Plaza Hotel Dallas Downtown

The Crowne Plaza Hotel Dallas Downtown is located in a busy area of town within walking distance of most the city's most popular sites and attractions. There's plenty to do here, whether you're looking to take in a pro basketball game, grab a drink, or tackle a massive helping of world famous Texas barbecue. The nation's largest Art District resides here, and the massive Dallas Museum of Art houses a number of collections, including ancient American, contemporary, African, and ancient Mediterranean art.

While visitors probably won't want to spend much time outside during the summer months, most of the year is just fine for outdoor activities. Numerous festivals, parades, and fairs take place during all seasons. And when August brings sizzling heat waves, visitors can bounce between the various indoor options, especially Dallas' renowned barbecue restaurants and smokehouses.

Sexy lounge, restaurant and nightclub that doesn't seem to fit with the hotel's overall aesthetic -- in a good way

"Thrive" is a popular spot on the Dallas dining and party scene. The lounge bar and restaurant, serving "New American" cuisine, gives way to a young dance-party-centric nightclub later in the evening.
