When I was visiting King of Prussia, I wanted to stay close to the King of Prussia Mall. This hotel is located across from the Mall! It`s a 5 minute walk, not even, it`s crossing the street and you`re there.
The strong points of this hotel
- Great location, at least for me, as I wanted to stay close to the mall
- Free WiFi
- Friendly and helpful staff at the reception
Like I said in the strong points of this hotel, for me, the location couldn`t have been better, as I wanted to stay close to the mall for some shopping. The hotel is located across from the King of Prussia Mall, which is largest mall on the east coast. Of course there are many other sights for you to see, besides the mall when staying at this hotel. Here`s a top 10 of area attractions.
I stayed here for two nights when I flew into Philadelphia International Airport and used a car service to pick me up, as I wasn`t hiring a car, because friends were picking me up after my stay here. I used South Jersey Limousine and I was very pleased with their service. The driver was standing at the arrival hall with my name and in half an hour I stood at my hotel.
The rooms were spacious and had comfortable beds. There is also a desk, TV and mini-bar available for your convenience. A plus for me was the free WiFi connection, you get a password and username, which they provide you at the reception. If you don`t have your own computer with you, there are computers available at the business center. You can also find vending machines with candy, drinks… and even an ATM at this business center.
The only thing that bothered me was, even though I got an upgrade to a room on the quiet floor, there was still noise in the hall ways that came from fellow guests at night time.
The first morning I tried the breakfast buffet. You can either choose for the buffet or order à la carte. At the buffet you have a wide range of choice for hot breakfast: like omelets, eggs & bacon, waffles etc. or you can choose toast, cereals, fresh fruit,…
I was here for pleasure, but they do offer a good location for business as well, as they have a lot of meeting and conference space. There was even an event going on when I was there.

This hotel stay of 2 nights was booked at a reduced rate, provided by the Crowne Plaza Valley Forge hotel. However that doesn`t affect my honest opinion in this review about the hotel.
