Back in April I visited with a couple of friends for a long weekend. The Crowne Plaza Milwaukee West is actually in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin which is where one of my friends live. I used my annual free night certificate from the IHG Platinum MasterCard.
I arrived late on a Sunday afternoon and had a short wait to check in. Once I reached the counter my Platinum status was recognized and the friendly associate soon had my room assigned. I was given a king room on the 7th floor. Though it overlooked a busy intersection, I never had any issue with traffic noise.

I arrived in Los Angeles very late on a Friday night and stayed here for one night while waiting for a friend who would fly in the next morning. I took the free shuttle to the hotel. Note that LAX is extremely busy, even late at night, on Friday evenings and it may take quite some time to get to the hotel, even though it’s just a short distance away.
As a platinum member I stepped to the priority check-in lane – but unfortunately got there just after a small group of people stopped to ask the front desk staffer some questions. As a result, the people in the non-priority lane actually got assisted before I did. Part of me wishes they’d been directed to the other check-in lane but the staff member was very professional and answered their questions thoroughly before they left. Once he assisted me it was a very quick process to get my room key and choose my welcome amenity and I was on my way to a club room on the top floor.
