We have stayed at this property plenty of times over the years but this visit was disappointing, the room was dusty and not cleaned well , the whole atmosphere of the apartments is worn out , it really needs a lot of maintenance. A disappointing stay.

I loved Crown on Darby. It was centrally located and the apartments were very spacious. The shower was fantastic. The beds were comfortable. This will be my home away from home.

The entire room was great BUT don’t get room 26A as it sits above the electric garage door to the car park and guests (rightly so) come and go at all hours! Very hard to sleep! The apartments are located in a great area full of restaurants and bars and great shops
