At first I hesitated to book the room here as my experience at a Crowne Plaza wasn't the best one, but then they offered shuttle service to the training center I have to go to ( I didn't want to drive 20 miles each way in the snow/ice condition) and the room rate offered is the best one, and the reviews are good on Tripadvisor. Boy, was I pleasantly surprise! :) I experienced great customer services, from front desk, to housekeeping to shuttle drivers. Although I have to agree with some of the reviewers that a couple of staff at the restaurants were not the friendliest, but I didn't get bothered by it too much. I also noticed people do not tip the staff at the restaurants, so can this be one of the reasons why they are not the friendliest among all other staff at the hotel?
The room was nice and clean, although the wall is quite thin, so if you have a noisy neighbor, then you might have some noise issue. The bathroom is nice and clean and you can tell they had recently renovated the place.
Overall speaking, I enjoyed my stay here and yes, I would stay here again if I am in the suburban Philly area, oh and yes, having the mall right across is a big plus for me. I didn't attempt to walk over to the mall in the below freezing condition, but I know a few folks that I met did. It is really close by and I think they hotel shuttle will take you there as well.
