Flawless from Start to Finish
We stumbled upon the Crowne Plaza Cleveland at Playhouse Square after having to find a new venue for our September 2020 reception in January - and I am so glad that we did! From day one, Daneel, Gayle and the staff at the Crowne Plaza Cleveland at Playhouse Square have been nothing but courteous, professional and so helpful. Daneel was always quick to respond to our seemingly never-ending list of questions. On our wedding day, Daneel was very present and checked in us to make sure that we had everything that we needed.
The setup of the reception was beautiful - we are still waiting on our professional pictures, but Daneel and her staff took my unorganized list of ideas and signs and organized them so that everything was PERFECT for our reception. Our food was AMAZING (special shout out to chef!!) and all of our guests were raving about ALL of the options (salmon, steak and vegan ravioli). Daneel had champagne and orange juice brought up to the bridal suite while the girls were getting ready (which is MASSIVE and boasts gorgeous views of downtown) as well as a bottle of champagne, chocolate covered strawberries and a gift waiting for us once the night was ending. It is very clear that Daneel takes pride in her profession and I am so glad that her and the entire staff at the Crowne Plaza were able to play such a pivotal role in ensuring that our reception was flawless! All of our guests had so much fun and everyone had glowing reviews of the staff, food and venue.
We ended up having our reception at the Crowne Plaza by chance and it truly turned out to be the biggest blessing in disguise. If you're thinking about booking at the Crowne Plaza Cleveland at Playhouse Square - stop thinking and DO IT! You will not regret it!Sent on 10/01/2020

Fabulous Wedding at a Wonderful Hotel
My son and daughter-in-law were married at the Crowne Plaza Playhouse Square on December 28, 2019. It was an absolutely perfect wedding! The ballroom was beautiful, the food was great and everyone truly cared about the wedding and the bridal couple. The servers at the wedding were particularly caring of each and every guest. Daneel McDaniel, the Catering Sales Manager and our contact for the wedding, went out of her way to personally ensure everything was done as requested and planned. She is experienced with weddings, understands the issues, made sure of all details, was a pleasure to work with, always returned calls promptly and followed through with everything. She is a wonderful asset to the hotel and to any couple planning a wedding.Sent on 01/13/2020
It was a perfect day and a perfect weekend thanks to everyone at the Crowne Plaza. We highly recommend Daneel and the Crowne Plaza at Playhouse Square!

The Best Wedding Venue choice in Downtown Cleveland
If you are looking for an all-in-one, stress-free wedding and/or reception experience, Crowne Plaza is the best choice in downtown Cleveland. Daneel and the dedicated staff at the Crowne Plaza have EVERYTHING covered in a beautiful, renovated venue with a great location.Sent on 01/15/2020
My husband and I are both from the Cleveland area but live in Salt Lake City, Utah. We decided to get married in Ohio because that is where most of our family and many of our friends still live. Our parents visited many venues in and around the city for us when we first got engaged in 2018, but none were the total package for what we were looking for in planning a wedding from across the country.
When we visited for Christmas that year, my husband found the Crowne Plaza online, which was a venue neither of our parents had seen before. We were able to visit the next day and immediately knew that it was the place for us. Daneel, the wedding coordinator, was experienced, knowledgeable and very patient. The ballroom was gorgeous and had a beautiful view of Playhouse Square. The bridal suite was outstanding. It included a large living/dining area with its own bathroom attached to a private master suite with its own bathroom including a large vanity, jacuzzi tub, and shower. On our wedding day, we had more than enough room for both the groomsmen and the bridesmaids to all get ready together but still separated, with the guys in the bedroom and the girls in the living and dining area. My maid of honor had an adjoining room to our suite which was more than convenient and was a perfect place to keep my dress hidden from my fiance.
Along with the outstanding accommodations, Daneel was wonderful to work with and took care of almost all of the wedding details! We had our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception at the hotel and the only thing we had to book ourselves was our photographer, entertainment and officiant. Daneel had great recommendations for these vendors and experience working with many of them, too.
After booking the Crowne Plaza, there were no "bridezilla" moments or arguments about silly details in any of our planning. This was in large part because Daneel had everything we needed to do organized, taken care of, and planned out in a timeline.
I was only back in Ohio for a weekend after booking the Crowne Plaza and it was for my bridal shower. That is when we had our food tasting with the AMAZING chef at the Crowne Plaza and cake tasting at Wild Flour Bakery, (which is included in the Crowne Plaza Wedding Package).
When our wedding weekend finally came in December 2019, we had no stress or worries and everything went perfectly. Our party of 130 friends and family had a wonderful time and couldn't say enough good things about their stay and how much they enjoyed our special day.
