We had everything needed in this hotel and enjoyed its prime location. As billed, the cookies at check-in were indeed warm and delicious. Our 16th floor room had a very interesting corner orientation with a good view. It was simple to walk to dinner at one of the many excellent restaurants nearby. The long breakfast line on Sunday morning was... More

Chose this hotel as it was across the street from Academy of Music - we had tickets to see Jerry Seinfeld. The warm cookies given during a very efficient check-in were great. Very comfortable hotel, friendly staff and great location. We were very happy for the location due to the extreme cold in Philadelphia that weekend. Had drinks in the... More

We returned to this hotel with our adult children and enjoyed the opportunity for all of us to have comfortable (affordable) rooms in a location where everyone could enjoy the activities of their choice. I really enjoyed sharing time together at breakfast in the morning and in the bar at night.

We stayed here for a quick trip to Philly for the weekend with friends. We got a breakfast/room package. We like king size beds but all they had at the time was two beds. The room was big in an American hotel room type. There was a refrigerator and a small area near the door if you brought snacks. There... More

I recently stayed here for a one night stay. I was in town for a local hockey game. I was meeting friends who lived in the city and the location of the hotel could not have been better. We were center of the city and near all the bars and restaurants. We also took the subway to Wells Fargo Arena... More

The good points are that the location is great and the room was spotless. The drawbacks are that the decor is boring and dated. The carpets in the lobby and in the room really needed cleaning. The staff are genuinely welcoming and gracious. The front desk and housekeeping are wonderful. Unfortunately the staff in the street level restaurant seemed really... More

Dear Marie, Thank you for your comments. I'm sorry that you didn't respond positively to our decor, I'd suggest trying our new and modern Suites on 5 on a subsequent visit. We also have plans to refresh our lobby in the not-too-distant future. I assure you that our staff's well-being is of utmost importance to our management team, though we... More

Nice hotel for business or pleasure. Visited with my family and had a lovely stay. The indoor pool was our kids highlight, but the nice buffet breakfast and the hotel's proximity to everything were the highlights for us parents. Parking was steep but expected at a centrally located big-city hotel. Overall a nice place to stay and would stay here... More

The Double Tree was a perfect spot for us! It was perfectly located to Howl at the Moon, restaurants, and other Philly attractions! Standing O, restaurant inside hotel, was perfect to grab something to eat before we headed out for the night.

We booked a double room with a friend, and as we got in we found rubbish behind the room desk and, far far worse, a large black cockroach roaming on the bathrooms towels (photos attached). So we asked to change room, which it was granted without problems and with the due apologies, and we were given free internet and breakfast... More

Dear Alex P. Thank you for the comments. We apologize that you encountered a palmetto bug in your bathroom. As we are a center city hotel located above a subway system we employ a very competent pest control company that provides weekly service and keeps these situations to a very infrequent occurrence. We had our engineering team examine your second... More
