Historical Traveller Reviews of Crowne Plaza Philadelphia Center City Hotel
Wonderful Repeat Stays!from A TripAdvisor Member
All of the beds are BRAND NEW and they are very comfy - plus there are seven pillows on each bed! The linens are clean and the pillows are fluffy. The room and bathrooms are also very clean.
The Elephant and Castle pub downstairs has a very wide menu selection and the food is great!
There is no shuttle from the airport, but a cab is $20 + tip to anyplace from the airport to downtown! There are also shuttles operated by 3rd parites that are cheaper but they make a whole bunch of stops and take quite a bit longer to get to the airport.
Crummy Service; Small Roomsfrom A TripAdvisor Member

Rooms too tiny for a three-starfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Like that reviewer and others below, I found the room too small and cramped to ever be considered up to three-star standard. Granted, downtown in a major city you expect rooms to be smaller than elsewhere, and so I would consider this an acceptable two star given the above-average quality of furnishings and decor. Just a block from the Liberty Place towers, it is probably a quite satisfactory choice for single business travelers whose first priority is to be in the very center of the office building district.
But for a couple or family on a pleasure visit, my room would have been much too small to be comfortable, and according to front desk staff to whom I complained, it is typical of their standard rooms. I have been in Manhattan one stars with more usable space. Basically, the room was a long narrow hallway which consumed much of its square footage, slightly widened at the end to be able to put a bed and TV stand/dresser with just enough space for one person to slip between them (sideways.)
This is, in fact, a converted Holiday Inn, and more pillows and toiletries than you would get in a Holiday Inn don't do enough to conceal that fact. Except I've never been in a Holiday Inn with rooms this tiny. Housekeeping seemed fine, and the bedspread, dresser, wallpaper and the picture on the wall were all quite attractive. Just one cheap chair, though (no room for more), a tired looking rug, and a nondescript bathroom which along with the extremely cramped space gave it an overall cheap feel despite the attempts to make it seem upscale. Beware of bidding three-star for Downtown on Priceline--this is OK if you get a low enough price and that or its location is a priority, but it's definitely not a three-star. And in evaluating price, if you will have a car consider that parking is $28.

Crowne Plaza Employs Crowne Stafffrom A TripAdvisor Member
We took the free shuttle ( from the hotel) to get the city trolley tour and this took us right where everything was in close range. The trolley and horse drawn carriages are a great way to get a feel for the city. The hotel itself is merely fine:
rooms small but comfortable
beds are upgraded...I did not see the sleep kit???
restaurant is average
**** but the staff are splendid! When we called for room service, I mentioned to Ishmael that we drink STARBUCKS coffee at home but
( laughingly)would settle for whatever they had. He went across the street and purchased some STARBUCKS coffee to brew especially for us. WOW! That was customer service and he was very pleasant and helpful! HE IS A KEEPER!!!
Stay here if you want to be treated with kindness and a smile, looking for a convenient location but not if you are looking for superior facilities.
Great Staff, poor managementfrom A TripAdvisor Member

Good Restaurant/Bar - Small Roomsfrom Bluegrasspicker
Rooms are small though, and not the cleanest - especially the bathrooms - they need a complete upgrade of rooms.
Enjoyed our stay overall.
3 stars - not 4.
Top Local Tips for Philadelphia
King Tut packages A number of hotels are offering King Tut packages with VIP tickets included. Well worth it, as non-VIP tickets are based on a timed entry. You have your own check in (any time you want to arrive), complimentary coat check, and VIP lounge. Definitely go for it.
The Philly Attitude Let your senses be your guide- when walking around Philly, be aware of inner city types who like to blast their radios in their SUV's and walk up and down the street shouting obscenities. Know how to navigate Philly, ready to walk alternate routes, and, therefore, you can easily avert trouble.
Django - French Cuisine Amazing french cuisine. Very small place off the beaten path. BYOB
