DANBURY, Conn. — The former Danbury Plaza Hotel has reopened as the Crowne Plaza Danbury.
The reopening follows a major renovation of the hotel, which is located off Interstate 84 near the corporate offices of General Electric, Honeywell, Pitney Bowes and others. The 242-room hotel is also near Western Connecticut State University and Danbury Hospital.
Some 26,000 square feet of meeting space has been remodeled. The space can be divided into as many as 14 meeting rooms; the largest of its three ballrooms can handle a 500-person banquet.
Leisure and business travelers will enjoy the hotel’s proximity to Danbury’s dining and entertainment district. It is also a short drive from several attractions, including the Military Museum of Southern New England, Quassy Amusement Park and the Richter Park Golf Course.
New to the hotel is Jays,a restaurant and lounge that serves upscale, casual American fare, including a signature filet with house-made steak sauce and truffle fries. For casual dining, the Fusion Cafe serves breakfast and lunch; for after-dinner drinks, there’s Whisper’s Lounge.
Amenities at the Crowne Plaza include a fitness facility, a full-service business center, an indoor pool and outdoor tennis courts that will open this summer. Free wireless Internet service is available in guest rooms and public areas
