Met my expectations
Having read all the reviews on a number of sites I knew what I was getting. In that sense it met expectations. My objective was a place for convenient walking to the convention center, Chinatown and Reading terminal and a decent price. Done. Now here is the bad: it's a worn out hotel showing it's age. The furniture and fixtures are falling apart - cosmetic mind you, not functionally. Noise - really bad. Poor noise insulation to other rooms ... To the street and to the lounge on floor one. Have no expectations of a completely quiet night.
Staff was helpful and friendly as would be expected. Parking was at a private lot across the street.
