Firstly, you will be amazed at how this not-so-expensive hotel is right in the middle of the city center, which is very useful as you don't have to spend money on transportation to visit the main landmarks and museums. Secondly, the room looked great: big, spacious, clean and with a good amount of light coming from the large windows overlooking the skyscrapers in the city center (we didn't expect a room with a view, so it was a plus for us). We even had a coffee machine with coffee and cups-to-go provided in the room, which I thought it was really nice. Last but not the least, the breakfast included in the room price had everything for everybody: plenty of choices, lots of flavors and options, fried or healthy food and so on. Oh, and other nice things: they offer late check-out for free (upon request though),laundry services, and they also keep your bags after checkout for free if you want to visit the city for a few more house. I totally recommend this hotel, it is worth every penny (and it's actually not expensive given all the advantages, if you ask me).
Great location steps from Convention Center. It was so convenient to have the full kitchen in our room - full sized refrigerator to store doggy bags from dinner for lunch the next day and a microwave to reheat them. Reading Terminal Market directly across the street offered a myriad of choices for lunch, bakery goodies or ice cream. Chinatown is a few blocks away as well. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful, and the simple breakfast buffet made getting out the door each morning quick and easy.
"PA woman's convention and historic sights visit."
We enjoyed our stay and also the view from our room. The staff was very helpful and we liked the idea of the shuttle service which we took advantage of. We also liked the free breakfast in the morning.
I am a country girl that had been called over 100 miles away for Federal jury duty. Coming to this Hotel was a scary adventure to me~being a women, all alone. I was pleasantly surprised to find that inside was courteous and reassuring staff. The rooms were extremely comfotable and clean with very reasonable rates. If I had to come back...this is where I'd stay.
I was in Philadelphia for a parent orientation for parents of incoming freshmen. The location was right on campus and made all the difference in the world! The staff was courteous and the environment was perfect; very quiet.
