- Sonesta Hotel Philadelphia (Formerly Crowne Plaza Hotel Downtown)Feb 02, 2013
The staff here is excellent. They were crowded and a bit understaffed for the influx when I arrived, but you wouldn't have known it by how on top of everything and cheerful they were. I was greeted immediately, and they kept checking on me even as I had to wait for someone to come down and show me to the room. Its so big it didn't feel like any hotel I'd been in before...more like an amusement park for adults? A resort? You wouldn't have to leave the premises at all if you didn't want to see Philadelphia. Given that its right in downtown Philly, though, you want to get out and try a few of the amazing bars and restaurants the city is known for.

This place is packed with perks and amenities. Staying here is like getting VIP access to some special club. It's massive, and you can carry your room card around to use the fitness center, rooftop pool, private lounge and meeting space, or business center. It just feels cool knowing you could use all that stuff even if you don't need it. There's a great restaurant attached with an Old English Pub feel--low light, leather, pints, even one of those English phone booths outside. There were a ton of pilots and flight attendants checking in when I arrived, so I figure this is a popular choice for frequent travelers and business folk. That means it doesn't quite have the local, intimate feel I usually like in a hotel, but it made it kind of exciting.Recommended for:
