I really enjoyed staying here. It is in a very good location and if desired can walk to nearly everything in center city. If wanting to go towards the Rodin Museum, zoo, etc you need to hop a bus (or in my case an on and off trolley) unless you are a really good "walker" The hotel is in an... More

Great location on Walnut street, basic hotel, no frills, friendly staff.Our room has fridge and microwave...looked out at parking garage, asked to change room as we booked for 3 days but never got any answer from front desk. Probably will select different hotel next time but expect to pay considerably higher tarrif. ...good deal at the Rodeway.

This is a very small boutique style hotel. It is in the perfect location (Independence Hall is short walk away). The room was really nice and staff was super friendly. When we checked in we were immediately told that the AC in our room was not working, but it was cool outside that night so we weren't too worried. The... More

Brian Karson the front desk manager will help you to make the best of your trip. The hotel is located between the historical area and new area that has museums. The hotel garage is just opposite to the hotel.

The room was outstanding, and I cannot say how much I appreciated the service. They went out of their way to make me feel welcome. I will not stay any where else. The location works well for any downtown Philadelphia events. I'll be back!

Location, great staff and a good rate made this hotel a great find! The hotel is in an older retrofitted building so if you are used to the over sized rooms found in places like Orlando, you may feel cramped. The rooms are not tiny, just smaller than a new construction hotel.

We were asked by the Glaumcoma specialist there to stay overnight for additional testing the next day prior to our trip back to NJ. ( This was over the Labor Day weekend)... More

I had a great stay here. The hotel was old but very cute. Our sink broke around 1 am and it was immediately fixed. The staff is so friendly and helpful, it was great to see them every time we came and went. I had lost my concert tickets and they let me print them out and then told me... More

The service we received was wonderful! We got there earlier than expected and were able to check-in with no wait. Brian and others were very friendly, gave us directions and made sure we were comfortable. He gave us the biggest room so we had enough space with our 2yr old son. The room was very updated and clean, we loved... More
