What would happen if you restored a 1900s-era train station and topped it with a 15-story glass tower of hotel rooms? The answer is the Crowne Plaza Hotel Pensacola Grand. The former passenger terminal for the Louisville and Nashville rail line was refurbished in the mid-1980s with the hotel tower added on top.
As expected, the hotel lobby and ground floor common areas are rich with historic detail. As much of the original material as possible was preserved when it was converted into a hotel, and it shows in the rich mahogany woods, crystal chandeliers and antique details like the stained-glass time-keeper above one doorway. Closer inspection reveals accents like large Art Deco sconces, intricate brass and glass light fixtures and patterned tile floors.
After all the ornate period details in the lobby, the rooms are a bit plain by comparison, although clean and well-kept. Basic furnishing are enlivened by large windows with sweeping views of historic Pensacola.
Treat yourself to upscale American fare at the aptly named 1912 Restaurant before walking next door to see a concert or catch an Ice Flyers hockey game. Cap off the evening with a nightcap at CAVU, the hotel’s naval-themed lounge chock-full of historic flight memorabilia. The local specialty cocktail is called a Bushwacker, and its blend of creamy and chocolate liqueurs and rum might make you want to sleep in the next day.
