This is a great hotel, conveniently located, with all the necessary amenities. Well, except for one: free in room wifi. I honestly don't understand how these chains still get away with not providing it when you can get in a lot of motels and even hostels. Get with the times, Hilton! Charging crazy per diem for in room wifi is... More

This hotel was perfect for our need; it is very close to Jefferson Hospitals, which is the place where my son had an interview for medical school. Meanwhile I had the chance to walk around the city (business and Historical area). There are many good places to shop as well as for eating great food. I was very satisfied with... More

I guess I had low expectations for a Doubletree in Center City Philadelphia because I was pleasantly surprised during my stay for a recent business meeting. The rooms are very well kept and the attached parking garage is so convenient. The bar is the lobby is ok. Business meeting rooms were fine. Overall for a short business meeting (3 days)... More

The Doubletree Hotel in Center City Philadelphia is wonderfully located right on Broad Street and steps away from the many theaters in the area. The rooms are nicely appointed and very comfortable. The parking garage is located right next door with easy access to the hotel. You even get a parking discount if you are a hotel guest. There are... More

Hotel is OK. In a great location. Reasonably clean -- although mildew in the bathrooms. Rooms a decent size; you can tell it is an older hotel that's been refurbished and in some cases the remodeling is real sad. They have this HORRENDOUS "illumination" in the lobby that is a great turnoff.. Upper floors pleasant. Staff members are very, VERY... More

Dear calinjaxnc, Thank you for the comments and we're sorry you did not have the same great stay that the majority of our Trip Advisor reviewers experience. Of course, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so some like our lobby and the fantastic chandelier light fixture, some don't. Thank you for staying with us and again we apologize... More

What a wonderful venue. The elevators were an issue in the past, but these have much improved. The views are reminicent of Europe. We often take our grandchildren here because of the two rooms and ease of walking to the museums.

Hotel amenities are adequate, rooms are clean, staff is very friendly and helpful. Don't expect an ultramodern hotel as it is clearly a bit older, but unless you need to spend all day in your room it is just fine. The internet access is NOT free, which they certainly could make inclusive as well as breakfast for the price I... More

I stayed at this hotel for three nights for a business conference. I decided to spend some of my own money ($12 per night) to upgrade the room to a corner room. Well worth the extra money, beautiful view of broad street and the skyline. Room was very clean, lots of pillows on the beds. Staff was very friendly. The... More
