    We had three priorities when booking a venue and the Crowne was without question the best fit in the area.
    1. Comfortable accommodations for our numerous out of town guests. Having the wedding at the hotel adds a level of comfort for your guests that cannot be found outside of a hotel venue. Guests had easy access to their rooms, and family members could change clothes or turn in for the evening without waiting for a shuttle.
    2. Excellent food and drink - We contacted all of our prospective venues with a specific meal plan. We wanted a BBQ theme and Chef Tim and his team went the extra mile to purchase a smoker to make the best brisket the groom ate in a long time, and food our guests RAVED about. He brought us in for an impressive tasting, complete with 3 custom BBQ sauces. As self proclaimed "food snobs" that really wanted to avoid the VIVA establishments that have taken over most of the venues in Reading, we recommend Chef Tim and the Crowne WHOLEHEARTEDLY- he went above and beyond to make our day awesome!!
    3- Awesome event planning staff we knew we could trust. We had the pleasure to work with Laura Taylor as our event planner. She accommodated our every request, including coordinating the surprise visit from the Nittany Lion Mascot, without any hint to the Groom. We loved working with her, she was fun and understanding- her team was great too.

    The Crowne Plaza was absolutely wonderful- we were so pleased with our experience there.

    The Crowne Plaza Reading has excellent & accommodating staff and Chef Tim is amazing. The venue offers large and small spaces that are expansive yet comfortable and the venue itself creates a beautiful event. Having a hotel connected is a great perk as well as breakfast options!
