This was one of the best Crowne Plaza hotels I've stayed in. The room was clean, spacious and quiet. The location is fantastic. Right near I-95, 10 minutes north of Wilmington and 30 minutes south of Philadephia. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. I didn't give them 5 stars because one elevator was always broken and the breakfast... More

While staying at this hotel, a camera, GPS and headphones were taken from my luggage. The luggage was under my control from the time I left home until I returned home. I called the hotel 3 times before I was able to speak to a manager.. Not only did I lose the items noted, the customer service was the worst... More

My husband and I travel quite a bit, and have stayed with many hotel chains. The Crowne Plaza group is one of our favorites. We noticed on TA that some patrons were not happy with this hotel, so when the opportunity arose for us to find a place to stay in the Wilmington area, we were hesitant to book a... More

I stayed at this hotel for a three day conference. The rooms are fairly spacious and certainly have the typical amenities you expect - four pillows, small fridge, writing desk - but nothing special. There was a floral odor throughout that wasn't particularly unpleasant, just unwanted. Much of the food was catered on site, and it was pretty good, but... More

My organization held our first event at the CP Wilmington North August 8-10, 2014 and we couldn't be more pleased with the facility and staff. The facility is beautifully updated, the food was excellent and well presented, but it was the staff that made it fantastic. Everyone took time to welcome our participants and ask if they needed anything. Any... More

They need signage by the road because you have to drive through the brandy-something corporate plaza parking lot to get to the hotel. The lobby and half of the hotel room looks clean and modern, but the other half looks like they have up on remodeling halfway through. The closet door is ripped off and the bathroom looks like it's... More

Had the worst experience! Stayed there earlier this month while vacationing in Philadelphia. We checked in on a Saturday night, and the hotel was fully booked. Guests were running screaming up and down the corridors and in the floors above and below us until 1:30 A.M.! We had to complain about the noise because we couldn't get any sleep. There... More

My wife and I stopped for the night on our way to NYC. Very large room was very clean. The dinner at Embers was fantastic. My wife had the vegetarian platter and it was delicious. I enjoyed the Delaware salad with goat cheese. Staff was very friendly and helpful with directions. Will stop on our way back from NYC.
