I attended a scrapbooking event at the Crowne Plaza last weekend. I live locally, but a friend from Baltimore and I stayed in a standard room for two nights. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. The room itself was lovely and very clean. The room felt quite spacious compared to many chain hotels, and was very quiet. Our event utilized the ballroom and a number of meeting rooms, and all were well-appointed. The ballroom was a bit warm compared to the rest of the hotel, but that may have been at the request of the event organizer. Our group had meals in the hotel's "Terrace," and everything I tried was tasty. I must sing the praises of the bacon in particular! :) Bacon was included in one of our breakfast buffets, and it's quite possibly the best bacon I've had in years. Complements to the chef and kitchen staff! The only reason I'm rating the Crowne Plaza "very good" rather than "excellent" is that the layout isn't particularly easy to navigate. I'm thinking that if I used a wheelchair or couldn't walk steps for some reason, I might have been a bit *irritated* by the lay-out, particularly the ground floor. It would also be nice to have automatic doors leading to the parking lot. When you're schlepping in a ton of scrapbooking materials (or other baggage), it's inconvenient to stop and have to put something down in order to open the door.
