The hotel is in a perfect location. Right in downtown where all the action happens. The room was nice, clean and decorated in a modern design. The flavored water and fruit at the lobby desk is a personal touch. I will stay here the next time I travel.

I stayed for one night - and I know over the next four years I will be staying quite a bit more. (My daughter will be attending a university in the area.) Location was amazing. I parked my car in the garage across the street - and walked everywhere! My single room was on the small size, but is was... More

The hotel was clean and the service was really great. For the price and location, you really can't go wrong. The only reason I didn't give it the max rating is because the bed was bit uncomfortable and my bathroom was outside the room, which really wasn't too bad. (but not all rooms are that way, only the most economical)

I spent four days here. The location is amazing. The rooms (at least the one I had) was very large, open and spacious. Initially I planned just a positive review. Unfortunately, there is more. Despite requesting several times from the front desk housekeeping never changed my sheets. Not sure about you but this is important to me. Further, at least... More

Prime location and value! Shower was a little slow - my only complaint but geez, the location was stellar. People were all super sweet, very attentive, and they remembered me by name when I came/went (can't beat Philly people). EASILY walkable to Wills Eye, Jeff,Pennsylvania hospital, the theaters, and more restaurants than you can count. Don't need to cab it... More

I stay in Choice Hotels all over New England and this hotel surprised me! First off, I got there late my first night.

Great downtown location, comfortable, but small rooms. Elevator is quite small, since this is an old hotel - BUT - the rooms appeared to be newly renovated. It was quiet, comfortable, and well appointed. All the staff were very friendly and professional, and the reception desk staff were welcoming and more than helpful with regard to dining. Could walk to... More

Excellent location, easy to get to many sights/restaurants/bars on foot. Friendly staff and clean room. Great hotel if you need a place to stay whilst exploring the city. Room a little chilly and tv package basic but would stay there again.
