Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by KrisIs10 Needs a more modern approach
We stayed for business for a weekend and I wasn't overly impressed. The theme of the hotel certainly didn't match the room decor - ours was old and outdated even though we were staying in the "Fashion Hotel" in the NY wing. There weren't many outlets for us to use for our laptops, cell phones and ipad chargers, so that was really difficult. The room was alright, but we were on the first floor with direct access from the yard and worried about leaving the curtains open so people could walk right up and see inside our room. We had patio furniture the first night, then it disappeared after that so we couldn't sit outside to relax.

The staff was excellent at helping my daughter plan her wedding reception making her consider several different options for most everything allowing her to personalize her wedding. They cleaned up t h e room afterwards wrapping everything for us and ready at the front desk the next morning. They also retrieved items up to 2 days later that had been forgotten the day after the wedding. The quality of the food was exceptional.

I arrived late and was given a room off of the lobby next to the hall, bar and indoor pool. It was very noisy and my only window was to the indoor pool.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Pipesee Disappointed
I expected the hotel stay to be above that of the other hotels I have stayed at in the same group. The price was more, so expectations were high. The extra charge for a fridge did not help.
The room, overall, was clean, though the sliders to the common area were filthy.
Traveling with a group, Dan, the person in charge of functions, was wonderful. He accommodated a potential 100-160 people by offering a BBQ in the dinner area for a reasonable price. It worked out perfectly for us! All of the kids and adults were fed and were able to hang around and swim.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Skipper76 Overall view of my stay
The bedding eas wonderful, the staff was polite and helpful at all times, the hotel was ultra clean, had no complaints at all (that is until the music got a little loud at times, but after all there were bars and weddings going on). I loved how you had the sign at the end of our hallway that said something like"shhh..sleeping zone". I've never seen one of those before. Also little details like a TV channel guide--to me that is such a simple thing more hotels should provide, All in all, I'll be back when in the area...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ReyW Berks Jazz Fest
The hotel did a wonderful job hosting the Jazz Fest. It was my wife and I first time staying at the Crowe Plaza during the Jazz Fest. The service was great. I reported it to the front desk to check our facet because it was running real slow and no hot water. When we got back from our show, the facet was repaired and there were no other issues to report.
The buffet breakfast included with the tower stay was good. Everything was clean and the food was prepared great.
The hotel staff was friendly. I will plan to stay here again.
The hotel is in a great location to food, shopping, and other stores and the different venues for the Jazz shows.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jazz Diva Crowne Plaza welcoming Jazz Guests
The common areas of the hotel were fabulous! I enjoyed the decorations, the food and drink offerings and the atmosphere overall. The Crowne Plaza common areas were beautifully decorated and welcoming! It was a nice to listen to up and coming high school jazz artists as well. The vendor area causes crowding when attending concerts in the ballroom. The hallway is narrow and generally over crowded in such a small space. Vendor placement in a different area would alleviate crowding. Perhaps at the far end of the hallway outside the ballroom? Although this would require closing the entry doors from the parking lot if that area was chosen. This is the area where the bar and Berks merchandise is located. We stayed in the Paris Wing of the hotel, and the room we had could really use a makeover. The rooms are outdated, and I don't think we've ever seen a bathroom that didn't have an exhaust fan.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tracienator Hidden Treasure!
We were working in Reading for about 3 months and tried a couple of hotels that just didn't measure up. On a whim we booked with Crowne and felt cheated that we hadn't found this place at the begining of our assignment. The rooms are comfortable and the facitlity is nice with everything we wanted-Pool, Fitness and breakfast (which was amazingly delish every morning!)- But what makes the Crowne special is all the people. From the moment we checked in the staff were wonderful. Customer Service is what they excel in, and is rare today. I feel like we made some cool friends out there in Reading... Special thanks to Craig for all you've done for us! You are the best... Tracy, Kathy, Bella, Tyler and so many others you are great!
Thank you and I hope we can come back out soon to stay with you all!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sclayton1 If you must be in Leesport, this is the best place to stay.
Staying at this hotel is the only thing I look forward to when I have to visit our Leesport plant. It has character. Craig and his staff are phenomenal and always remember me and welcome me back.
The rooms are clean and comfortable. There is always something going on in the bar for entertainment. It's just a classy place to stay!

Enjoy going to Reading, the Crowne is something to look forward to. Unfortunately the rates fluctuate and my company only allows so much. I'll keep it in the IHG family since I noticed my next stay will be over my limit.
Love the "quiet floor" and 5th floor tower specials. Sometimes rowdy on the weekends but with such nice amenities , people want to have receptions there, which is understandable.
Great place to stay!
And how do I change my nickname, I'm not an Unhappytraveler234. Lol

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Carol1956 Great experience except for the blanket on the bed
Staff extremely helpful and friendly, great food in the restaurant, room clean and quiet. My only complaint is that the blanket on the bed was so stiff and uncomfortable. It was like having a scratchy waffle on top of me. I ended up taking it off and sleeping with my robe on.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cpest Outstanding customer service in every area!
As a trainer of customer service representatives, I have a critical eye in this area. Every single employee at the Crowne Plaza provides amazing customer service as their role model, Manager Craig does as well. My work responsibilities place me in the Wyomissing area often, I feel like home when I stay here. As my travel schedule changes often, Kathy & Lisa are always quick to accommodate my changes. Ellen takes very good care of us in the Tower. Franklin is quick to provide us a cool drink and warm, tasty dinner.
Excellent place to stay, I recommend it to everyone!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mo2284 Great bed, nice people at desk.
The hotel was nice, the rooms clean and comfortabl . It was noisy but it was New Year's Eve, breakfast was included but they were understaffed for the amount of people staying. Omelet station was too crowded. Undercooked because he was rushed. Most of the food on the Buffett needed to be filled. Bacon not cooked well. Pastries empty. Juice watered down. Undercooked cold hash browns. I would do this again because the party was great! Breakfast not worth it. Staff nice. Breakfast staff over worked.
