We booked the hotel at the last minute for the Philadelphia marathon. The outside looked shabby and un-kept but once we stepped inside, it was a totally different story. Everything was clean, sleek and modern looking. The bathroom was beautifully renovated. The bed was very comfy and the bedroom was quiet. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Fantastic location, close... More

Rm 103 - 1 Queen Bed Small hotel but a very crisp, clean and bright foyer. Unfortunately, Brian - who checked us in - seemed a tad condescending, but I assume that he just preferred to deal with the older guests that checked in after us. The other gentleman on duty for the remainder of our stay was very friendly... More

We arrived to a very friendly front desk manager Dawn. She even helped us get bags out of the cab. Nice selection of fruit was available. No breakfast. The room was excellent in every way with modern furniture, very comfortable pillowed bed and very clean. Of course all choice hotels have microwave and frig. The bathroom was updated with large...

Self with wife stayed in the hotel for two nights. It is a single man management hotel. If all-in-one General Manager, Bob is not available / off-duty, you can be certain nobody knows anything excepting check-in & out. Bob is generally helpful. We got groundfloor room which probably is for handicapped. Room was uncomfortable & stuffy & stale and congested... More

My husband and I traveled here from Maryland on the first nite of our honeymoon to see a show at the World Cafe Live. Our experience was great. We arrived via bus, a couple hours before check in- but Brian Krason allowed us to check in early which was a relief! He was also helpful in calling us a shuttle... More

Only issue was this is not an easy hotel to find. For this reason I cannot rate as excellent. However once found it's easy to get around due to its great location. Many restaurants within walking distance; staff is very professional, room we were in had a huge shower, very clean, and roomy. I would recommend this motel to my... More

This was a very nice hotel. As someone else mentioned, the rooms are a tad small. Having never stayed in the city, maybe this is the norm. Either way, the room was nice, the bathroom was updated and clean, and the bed was comfy. As another review mentioned, the hotel is hidden right in the middle of all the action.... More

Hidden on Walnut Street right in the heart of Philadelphia. Clean and comfortable rooms. Staff always helpful. Good accessible by car Parking Garage across the street. No breakfast but a lot good places around, my choise was Reading Station Market. Next time in Philadelphia I will stay there again. Worth every Dollar.

Great hotel! I'd say it is great :-) Small rooms but comfortable. Came with everything. Self-contained. I would recommend it to anybody. I don't know a lot about the value. If I paid through trip advisor, maybe I'd have secured it for less?? It seems like a small hotel. Maybe new too?? I don't know. But, still comfortable. I had... More
