Located just south of Vanier Highway, the Crowne Plaza Lord Beaverbrook is situated in downtown Fredericton and is popular with business travellers and those visiting the University of New Brunswick (roughly 5 minutes' driving time).

The Crowne Plaza Lord Beaverbrook is a 5-minute drive to the University of New Brunswick and is across the street from the Fredericton Playhouse. The Fredericton Convention Centre and the Provincial Legislative Building are both within a 2-minute walk.

The hotel is roughly 14 km (a 16-minute drive) from Fredericton Airport (YFC). (All distances and travel time estimates: Google Maps)

The Good
The majority of reviews consulted for this analysis were positive with much praise going to the hotel's location, rooms, and staff.

Several reviewers praised the location of the hotel, characterizing it as close to everything, and "within walking distance to all attractions". The hotel was also complimented for its views of St. John River and for being near biking/hiking trails such as the Old Train Bridge Trail (roughly a 15-minute walk from the hotel).

The rooms were the source of several compliments by guests, who described them as quiet, spacious, and spotless. The beds were also deemed very comfortable by some reviewers.

Many guests were pleased with the staff and the service they provided at the hotel. They described them as capable, helpful, having great suggestions, and that they "made you feel at home".

The food at the on-site restaurants was also praised by some. The Terrace Dining Room's breakfast buffet (offered Monday through Friday), was described as having many delicious hot and cold items.

The Bad
While most of the reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a few common complaints among them about the added charge for parking and dated decor.

Some reviewers were disappointed they were charged $10 for parking. A few guests mentioned that parking used to be free at the hotel, and they felt it should still be included in the price.

A few guests described their rooms and the lobby of the hotel as being "tired" in terms of its decor. They described old and stained carpets and faded paint. 

Additional complaints about the hotel included loud air conditioning units in the rooms and that the only elevator was located at the far end of the lobby and it was often busy.

"Unfortunately we were on a tight schedule and had little time to enjoy Fredericton the way we would have liked. The Lord Beaverbrook provided a gorgeous view of the St. John river. A most picturesque vista. I would definitely stay at the Lord Beaverbrook again, and will recommend it to anyone traveling to Fredericton."

"This is an older mid range hotel. It is not new, could be considered historic. As long as the rate reflects this you have no problem. Within walking distance of the Lord Beaverbrook is a brand new Sheraton which is better more modern. I think you need a rate differential to sell the Lord Beaverbrook. Also advise people of the situation. The old idea you pay for what you get. This is a special deal because of x, y, and, z."
