New Jersey may be known for its shore, but if you head to its suburbs instead of its beach towns, you’ll discover that the Garden State is as rich in flora and fauna as the nickname suggests. Parks and trails abound here, such as in Bergen County, where you’ll find Flat Rock Brook Nature Center – a 150-acre preserve, set on the edge of the Palisades and across the Hudson from New York. You’ll be just a few minutes from this scenic destination as a guest at Crowne Plaza Englewood. And thanks to the George Washington Bridge entrance in the neighboring town of Fort Lee, you’ll be only a bit farther from all the best sights in the City that Never Sleeps.
The rest of the time that you’re not exploring the wild or taking Manhattan, catch some sleep yourself. Your room is warmly decorated in inviting tones, with movie channels on the 37-in. flat-screen TV and a generous seven layers of bedding on your mattress. There’s also an indoor swimming pool, and you can tend to any exercise needs at the well-equipped fitness center. And when you’re ready to face New Jersey nature or New York City again, you need only fuel up with a bite or a drink at Blue City Grille American restaurant, which serves three meals a day.
Your Wi-Fi-equipped room holds a 37-in. flat-screen cable and satellite HDTV with movie options, plus a stereo and a CD player. Channel surf from your bed, dressed in seven layers of linens. Standard rooms hold either one king or two double beds.
Amenities- Coffeemaker?- Work desk with lamp- Desk-level electrical outlet- Two dual-line speakerphones with voicemail- Bathroom with tub- Hair dryer- Double-glazed windows- Individually controlled air conditioning- Separate hanging closet- Sofabed- Microwave (upon request)- Mini-fridge (upon request)
Blue City Grille’s inspiration is a 1920s American restaurant. The eatery dishes up straightforward, yet filling, breakfast, lunch and dinner options. If you’re feeling lazy, order your meal to your room – it can be delivered between the hours of 6am and 10pm daily.
Englewood is a fantastic base for nature lovers, thanks to its expansive Flat Rock Brook Nature Center and its proximity to Greenbrook Nature Sanctuary in Palisades Park. It’s also less than four miles from New York City – though of course, you’ll need to drive down to Fort Lee, where the New Jersey entrance of the George Washington Bridge is located, to get there. Spend your days taking the local trails or taking Manhattan – the choice is yours.
How to Get There
My husband and I stayed one night as we were attending a wedding in Englewood. Sunday morning I forgot my makeup bag in the bathroom and didn't realize it til Monday morning. I called right away and reported to lost and found. They called back that afternoon to confirm they had it and would bring it to the front desk. I live 3 hours away in Boston so picking it up was out of the question. I proceeded to call the front desk confirm it was there which it was. They confirmed my address and said ok we will send it to you. I waited a week and didn't receive anything in the mail. I called back and was told to send a copy of a shipping label to the Crown Plaza email. After much difficulty trying to execute getting a shipping label I called the front desk at 10 pm in the evening and reached Marissa B. She was professional asked how she could help me and listened to my sad tale. She offered to put my makeup bag in the mail the next day on her way to work. She called me with the tracking number after she had mailed my bag to me. I'm so grateful the Crown Plaza has an employee like Marissa positive, helpful and aiming to please the customer. Thank you for the great service!
The room was clean, but nothing fancy. The bathroom, eh. Needed work, and a more in depth cleaning. The lobby was very nice and clean. The desk staff were very nice. However, imagine my surprise when I go down for breakfast, have a somewhat okay bit of eggs and bacon, only to have a waiter come and bring me a bill. Silly, me - I thought for the over $200 per night price that breakfast was part of it - especially since I couldn't see that there was anywhere within walking distance to eat before the business day started.... and if I recall correctly, the price for the breakfast was pretty high for no more than what it was. I know it was a stupid mistake on my part to ASSume that breakfast was included, but I honestly have never stayed in such an expensive motel where it was not. It seems like a small point to quibble about, but between the eh feeling of a bathroom that could have smelled a little more disinfected to a feeling of being shocked with a $15 breakfast tab, I really don't think I would choose to stay here again.
Everything with me is perfect from the service to staff.
The attitude of the staff served me very comfortable to rest here, very chic restaurant with delicious food and variety. Rooms are very comfortable, clean, comfortable and modern equipment.
in general everything was perfect and I appreciate about this hotel.
Nice hotel with good rooms and proper service. 2 small improvement points: Food in restaurant was not great and the A-C in the room is loud. Overall very nice bed , nice bathroom and plenty of space. Good hotel voor a couple of nights.
So we arrived with reservations for two rooms. The friendly gentleman at front desk name Orlando , graciously checked us in. Upon opening the door of my room #202... right next to a conference room I was hit by a foul-smelling punch.... and I was able to look into a bathroom ready for ADA wheelchair access without even walking in. Let's just say that I did not even finish opening the door when I shut it back closed.... waltzed my way down and I stated to the gracious gentleman that checked us in that I was not handicapped , thus I did not need an ADA-type room... HE started mumbling that that was what it showed requested in our reservation... So I asked if that was the case for the other room we had and he said yes. Shortly after he agreed to change my room .... while I started telling him that the travel agent would hear about it... he quickly switched the story to detail that the coding used was not for handicapped room but rather "any available" room... I did not want to make more of an issue..... but upon conferring with my travel companion he said that his room was nothing short of unpleasant, and if he had to stay a 2nd night he would look for another hotel.... I shared with him what happen and he was irate... but do to the fact that we were there for less than 24 hours... we did not want to pursue a formal complaint. BUT my dear Orlando, gentleman at front desk..... giving handicapped rooms to two able body guests under the initial intend to blaming it on the travel agent , to quickly trying to fix it by saying that it was not for ADA but any room... and YOU choosing to put us both on those rooms... was a faulty call on your behalf..... I would not dare to say that you gave us those rooms because you heard an accent while we spoke English or because we later continued the conversation in Spanish with you. Really... I do not what to think that you gave us trash because of who we were.... I rather think that you just wanted to give us B.S. rooms because you wanted to place "slightly" better options to other people. Yes I appreciate that you switch me to a better room.... no musty odor and regular bathroom with updated furniture.... but your initial intent... it reflects on you. Please if you choose to reply to this message do not even try to say that the hotel was completely full or any of those lame excuses when someone has been caught on naughty behavior... because while I will agree the hotel was busy , you did have decent rooms to give us from the beginning but chose to give us garbage. I truly feel for the ADA bound guests... Stay away from this property to fulfill your needs.
