Enjoyable stay at the spur of the moment

We just got tickets for the playoff game vs. the Saints. We were able to get reservations immediately and show up amongst the big snow piles from the previous weeks snow. Thanks for all the hospitality. Too bad the birds lost though.

Nice Location

Hotel was in an ideal location. The staff was friendly and nice. Only setback I had was the leak in the ceiling. We stayed for one night and woke up to a leaking ceiling the next morning due to the heavy Rain. After the hotel staff was informed they offered us another room and late check out. Unfortunately we had to leave to be at another location. The hotel is close to Starbucks, California pizza kitchen and even target. TGI Fridays is just steps away. All in all it was a good stay minus the leaking ceiling.

Great experience!

We got checked in with Purvi. She was absolutely welcoming and friendly. She answered our questions and recommended the on site restaurant. (which employees usually do,) but when we asked for recommendations, her suggestions were spot on! I cam tell she knows what she's talking about. Avenue Grill was tasty. Food was wonderful and the fries were amazing. Our waitress was very friendly and made me a drink based off my "I don't really like the taste of alcohol" statement. The drink was a hit! Its soon to be called the "Avenue Delight". But I implore you to name it after the creator! There's an indoor pool and jacuzzi, and although I didn't partake, the area was clean and had plenty of towels. Parking is on site, and manageable. Only complaint/gripe Is that a continental breakfast isn't provided, and the hotel is pretty far from Central Philly.

Target and TGI Fridays are a short walk away. The scenic walk is worth it.

Great Stay

I was in Philadelphia for some business and the hotel was located at the perfect spot. The complimentary shuttle that takes you down town is a great perk. They are currently working on renovating the hotel, but it is still decent. All of the staff was extremely friendly and helpful.

Crowning Visit

I stayed at the Crowne Plaza for 3 nights to attend a conference. The hotel staff was friendly, available, and helpful. The room was comfortable; layout, bath, bed, temperature. I ate at the Avenue Grill, within the hotel which was quite good. The staff and service was friendly, attentive and good natured. I used the fitness facilities. The room temperature was quite high the first morning, I mentioned it to staff and it was comfortable the next morning. I would recommend staying at the hotel for the above reasons.

Katz Deli, located on King's Grant Drive/adjacent to the GSB Building. I attended the Beck Institute in GSB blg. Katz Deli has great food, terrific variety, fresh, fast, tasty. I had lox and bagel one lunch, and a wrap the next day. I loved their cookies. Real Philly cookies! Try it!

Great experience over-all

This was a very good experience, everyone was super friendly and they were willing to help a Student out. I had a red eye flight and arrived in Philadelphia at 630 am. I called them to see if it was possible to check in early... and guess what they did. I was able to check in at 830, which was a relief especially because i was stuck in a middle seat. Then when i had to check out, they let me keep my luggage in their safe room while I had to do some more things in Philadelphia. I would definitely go there again
