I was super excited about my first trip to Philadelphia ever. I had reservations at this hotel & felt fortunate for getting an awesome deal. The day prior to my check in date, it began to snow in my area, DC was targeted as the hardest hit. I called the hotel to move my reservation to a later date since... More

This is a great quaint hotel. Historic feel, but with updated amenities. Brian Krason at the front desk went above and beyond to ensure my stay was nothing but excellent. Friendly and professional. A+ I will definitely be staying at this hotel again, next time I'm in Philadelphia!

The room was better than expected, the customer service was excellent, especially Brian from the reception. He gave us free vouchers to visit the observatory and the ice-skating ring by the river and helped us a lot get to places around the city. His cheerfulness and generosity was very much appreciated.

The inn is right in the center, easy to access and staff is nice. They are also well equipped and will be glad to help out in any way they can. They helped us out when we got to our room. Really nice places close by, too.

A great hotel which I secured only on arrival at the Union Railway station by the staff at the Information desk....It turned out to be one of the best rooms I have ever had dollar for dollar....it is far from expensive....in an ideal spot for drinking, eating, theatre, sightseeing. Would definitely stay there again....

Our room was clean, and the furniture was updated. The staff was incredibly helpful and kind, and finding the Philadelphia Inquirer at our door in the morning was a nice touch! We arrived earlier than expected, and they were able to check us in when we arrived. The hotel is close to lots of popular Philly destinations. We loved it,... More

I was incredibly impressed with the cost, location, cleanliness and modern conveniences of this hotel. Can't beat the price for Center City, and the hotel is located near TONS of excellent restaurants and sights to see (I walked to Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell in about 20 minutes and enjoyed delicious Philly-style sandwiches, upscale Tex-Mex and homemade gelato within...

Overall it would be a nice hotel if it would not be for mice crossing the room. We notified the clerk and we were given a new room. However, other requests concerning mice were never answered. If you do a search for mice complains about that hotel you will find quite a few, so this is not a new problem,... More

We're glad that you think highly of our hotel aside from the mouse issue in your room. We have acknowledged the issue with the mice and we apologize for it. It's unfortunate, but the recent construction across the street has disrupted a lot of the ground around the neighborhood and caused the mice to move around the neighborhood and affect... More

To start... I didn't even make it through the front door. So I booked my room for New Years Eve in Philly...I'm a mummer, I then realized that my original plan was a little overwhelming and pretty much just clicking through the booking process (honest mistake really). So I call the hotel to ask about cancellation and refunds, I speak... More

A reservation is a two way agreement. I always use the example imagine you make a reservation and show up excited only to find out we didn't honor our agreement. Well, we expect the same thing from someone making a reservation. Also, in today's business world exceptions can be misunderstood or interpreted. Therefore, to be fair to everyone yes we... More
