My wife and I traveled to Philadalphia to visit a relative in hospice care this month. Because we could not confirm how many days we might stay, the hotel made a two-day reservation with a late day check out option on the second day. The Crown Plaza offered this option and a special rate for a king room as a "hospital rate" which was a new term to us. We were very appreciative and would recommend this hotel if you need to stay on this side of Philadelphia ( it is outside of the city).
The location of the hotel is next to a small shopping center with a Target store as the anchor and a few restaurants. There is also a Friday's in the front of the hotel's parking lot and parking seems to get tight in the evenings as the restaurant crowd competes for parking spaces.
The room was as described and we were in a "secure" wing of our floor where they provided snacks and fruit each day and the key card was needed to enter the hallway. The hotel staff seems very well trained and veterans of the property. We did not eat in the restaurant, but i did have breakfast the last morning. I arrived just as the buffet opened and have to say that the food was not great; bland eggs, salty hash browns and very under-cooked bacon.
Still, a pleasant stay in difficult circumstances and I would recommend this hotel if it fits your destination needs.
