Crowne Plaza Ravinia Hotel Review: Within walking distance of Perimeter Mall as well as Park Place, this is a great hotel for shopaholics. But it also serves well the requirements of business travelers and wedding parties. Its 495 rooms and 30 suites enable large groups to celebrate everything from graduations to engagements. La Grotta Ristorante, serving Italian cuisine in the lobby level, enjoys splendid views of the hotel's magnificent, lush gardens, and its private spaces are good for small receptions and rehearsal dinners. Besides La Grotta, Bistro 55 serves breakfast and lunch until 2 p.m., when The Mix, a bar, takes over the same menu service and operates until midnight. Standard guest rooms are furnished with high-speed Internet access, two-line speaker phones with data ports and Sony Playstations. Unexpected perks for a standard chain property include private limousine service, secretarial services and executive floors that cater to business travelers and families alike. Guests can end a stressful day of meetings or hard-core shopping at the pool and outdoor sundeck.
