I'm a Platinum IHG member and frequent all brands of the chain and have come to expect the Crowne Plaza group to be a little bit higher level quality. At first glance - this hotel would fit the bill - however upon closer examination one finds its merely 'window dressing' First off - check in was luke-warm. I try to... More

At check in, I asked for a room on a high floor and far away from the elevator. Both requests were accommodated, and cheerfully so. I found the room to be a nice size, the bed to be comfortable, and the bathroom to be an acceptable size. The hotel is one of two (the Hilton being the other) that are... More

We stayed at the Crowne Plaza this week on our way out to the east coast. It was ok, but not great. It is an older building that has received some updating (great beds, new decor, lovely lobby), but probably needs to be gutted and completely re-done. I felt like it was kind of like "putting lipstick on a pig,"... More

The service staff needs to use door wedges so that they do not use the security bar to let the door hit and make lots of noise early in the morning. The front desk staff is outstanding and will go the extra mile to take care of the guest. The bar staff is up on all the current sports things... More

The clock in my room didn't work, nor did the blow dryer. I had to ask for more toilet paper and I was short on towels; there was no room service menu in the room (and this was true of multiple rooms, I found out). On the day of checkout (a Wednesday), I had to wait about 20 minutes for... More

Had to go to Harrisburg for a conference for 3 days and selected this hotel to be in the downtown area. Very clean, very reasonable and extremely accommodating.

I had a conference at the Hilton which is a block away and decided to stay here to save some money. The Hilton is a better hotel, but this is a better value. The staff is friendly.
