We have recently converted a wing of one of our guest room floors to a Dedicated Womens Traveler Floor. This key card access-only wing features specialty rooms that offer additional amenities such as vanity kits, sewing kits, makeup remover kits, robes and slippers. Also, the bathrooms in these guest rooms are equipped with curling irons and upgraded vanity mirrors & hair dryers. Our 100% non-smoking property is centrally located between downtown Philadelphia and the suburbs, putting you within minutes of the Philadelphia Sports Complex, Philadelphia Zoo, the Barnes Foundation, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, the National Constitution Center, and all other Philadelphia historic landmarks. All 337 of our guest rooms feature the Crowne Plaza Sleep Advantage Program - custom-made to ensure a great night's sleep when you travel. We also offer our guests free parking and free wireless high-speed Internet throughout the hotel. We offer 7,000 square feet of flexible meeting space, perfect for your next corporate or social event.
