“Had my wedding there - FANTASTIC!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

This hotel is a hidden gem. The outside seems a bit suspect and industrial, but as soon as you walk through the doors of the Rockville Crowne Plaza, you are amazed at its inner elegance. Everything is beautifully renovated. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and very affordable. It's the perfect locale for a wedding as you are right in the middle of EVERYTHING. There is a metro station less than two minutes from the hotel, so you can hop on the metro and go in to the city so you don't have to worry about parking. There is a lot to do in Rockville, Gettysburg and historic Frederick are each 20-30 minute drives....wonderful!

I had my wedding reception there and the staff was FABULOUS - particularly Laura Tinsman, the wedding coordinator. We found the hotel a year out from my wedding, and I literally had to worry about NOTHING, aside from finding a florist and photographer. Laura and the hotel staff took care of EVERYTHING. My wedding week and day were totally stress free. The reception hall was beautifully decorated. Laura coordinated between all the various vendors to make sure things ran smoothly. The food was fantastic . It's two weeks later and my guests are STILL contacting me to tell me what a wonderful time they had. I would recommend this hotel and Laura Tinsman to any traveler/bride who is thinking about using this hotel.

Absolutely WONDERFUL.

We began planning this wedding a year out. While planning weddings is inherently difficult and complex, this wedding was even more so, as we had to do it from afar. As a military family, the parents were trying to plan the wedding in Maryland, from Texas. The bride and groom were stationed in Missouri, and the guests came from across the globe. Laura Tinsman was the wedding planner. She was nothing short of superb. While we visited many hotels in a wide area from Dulles to DC, none exhibited the professionalism, the knowledge, the experience or the motivation to assist us in a very difficult wedding schedule that Laura provided. She handled everything from the rooms, to the wedding set up, to all the ancillary, yet critical details. In the areas where she was not directly responsible, she provided a list of exceptional vendors. Laura "cared" and treated us as her own. The hotel staff was friendly and extremely accommodating in every way. Simply outstanding, in every area. A wonderful experience.

Room Tip: Do not be dissuaded by the exterior of the hotel. While the exterior seems to be old and dated, the...

Although my husband and I live in Texas, my daughter was getting married in Maryland. So after looking at many, many different hotel venues, we chose the Crowne Plaza in Rockville. That was the absolutely best choice we could have made! Every aspect of the hotel was done with the highest quality and professionalism! Their event planner is top-notch and not only met all of our needs, but exceeded them! Even before we knew we had a need, she could foresee them and solved all! The rooms were very nice! Clean, spacious and decorately beautifully. Also, the location is great because you are just 5 minutes from the train into Washington DC. I highly, highly recommend the Rockville Crowne Plaza and give this entire hotel and their staff an A+!

Room Tip: My room was on the third floor adjacent to the highway and I never heard a sound! The bed was extre...

We held our daughters bat mitzvah here a few weekends ago. We had about a dozen guests who stayed at the hotel and enjoyed the clean, spacious guest rooms. The front desk clerks were friendly and efficient. The bat mitzvah itself was lovely. We had 150 people at the event. Laura who is in charge of the events planning was amazing and took care of every detail. Chef Bud and his assistant Dario did a fantastic job on the food. Everybody who attended the event was extremely impressed. From the cocktail hour and appetizers to the sit down luncheon, everything was well done and immaculately prepared. We will definitely hold our next major event at the Crowne Plaza and we have already referred other people to the hotel both for events and to stay for a few nights. You will be thrilled with this hotel!

This was my only second stay at Crowne Plaza hotel. The room was nice and large. They provided their usual bedtime spray, which really helps a lot to fall asleep and stay asleep. Big plus for someone tired and wanting to rest.
The downside of the hotel is the location, it is quite far away from the metro station, so car is a must if you want to get anywhere around.

Because of the good rates, I gave this hotel a second chance. I have stayed at this hotel for more than five times. I got pretty bad experiences for the previous two times (see my previous review). This time, I was given a free upgrade to a suite. The hotel common areas and room have been updated. The stay was uneventful except for one instance. Some people was making noises after 11:00 pm (close to midnight). I had to call the front desk two/three times to move those people away. It was unfortunate that the front desk personnel was not forceful. Otherwise, service was good, including the breakfast. The fitness was the same as before. Some equipments were not fixed or updated.
