Reviewed 11 October 2013

My Partner and i stayed at the Crown Plaza this week we just checked out this morning and i want to say that we were pleasantly surprised by the level of service at this hotel. when we go to Philly we usually stay downtown at another Hotel. But this time he was taking a class that was being held at the Crown Plaza. After a very quick and friendly check-in from Dean at the front desk. Everyone we encountered on staff was great. The breakfast staff went above and beyond expectations! The Hotel is about 10 minutes from center city. We will most certainly be back.

This hotel was selected as part of a wedding so we did not have much choice in the location.Check in was with friendly front desk staff but the bellmen did not seem interested in helping with bags. We extended our stay on the front end to make the weekend a bit easier and when checkout time had passed for the first night, staff knocked on the door and asked if we planned on checking out anytime soon. When he was informed that we were in the same room for both nights he simply walked away. The wedding party had arranged for an after-party at the hotel bar with food and drinks for the guests. The kitchen closed when we arrived and the open bar was cashed out about 45 minutes later, about an hour and a half before closing for the night. No accommodation was made for the group. The room itself was fairly clean and reasonably comfortable but I was expecting more for a Crowne Plaza property.

I stayed overnight for an interview at Drexel in early October. The room was clean and quiet. But above all, I'd really like to thank Vicki for her kind assistance. She went up and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. Staff like Vicki really make the hotel truly shine! Thank you again!

This hotel is in a very convenient location right off 76. Upon arrival I was greeted and welcomed to the property by a very friendly and attentive staff. My room was ready upon arrival and the check in process was very quick. My room was located on the eighth floor which was very quiet and offered a lounge with snacks and soft drinks. The room itself was clean and spacious although the bathroom was somewhat dated, it was still very clean and in great condition. The bed and bedding was comfortable and also well maintained. The room service meal was delivered within the time promised, the food was hot and well prepared. The menu was reasonably priced and offered many choices. The hotel has plenty of free parking available and is located near lots of restaurants and shopping.
This is a great property in a great location.

Room Tip: Executive floor is extremely quiet.

The staff is so nice and helpful. I arrived quite early, much before check in time and was going to simply stow my bag but was informed since my room was ready I could go on up. I needed advice several times since I was unfamiliar with the area and the front desk and bellman always had answers and suggestions with taxi service and shuttles, etc. Also, it was very convenient that a car rental was on the premise. I am staying here again for my October visit.

We were happily surprised and pleased with our 3 night stay. Rooms were very large, exceptionally good housekeeping, very good shower, excellent bed and pillows. There was a problem with our reservation, we needed a room near the elevator but that was not noted on our reservation so we had to change rooms. Too bad there was no safe or frig in the room, Quite close to downtown (15 min). We found it unusual that there's no place for breakfast except the hotel within 5 miles from hotel, so make sure you don't miss the 10am breakfast cuttoff (please make it 11am, for those on vacation!). Philly was a great short vacation, will certainly revisit and stay here again

Beds were comfortable, room was clean, service was very friendly and professional. I expected more for the price we paid. There was no min bar, no fridge, no microwave. Staff was so courteous they made me want to stay another night.
