Booked a room for my parents, they stayed 3nights. The service was amazing, the room was kept very clean and modern furnishings. The rooftop pool was also nice, the water was a bit cold, but other than that highly recommend it!

Found ourselves staying here as part of our honeymoon and it was a truly great hotel. Lovely welcome from front desk, spotless room and a superb location as only around the corner from Liberty Bell, Independence Hall and the main Hop On, Hop Off Bus stop. Market St is around the corner for a vast selection of restaurants! Breakfast was... More

My wife and I stayed here for three nights on a recent trip to Philadelphia. This used to be a Holiday Inn and the owner decided to change it to a Wyndham franchise. This hotel is in a great location if you want to be in the historical district of Philadelphia. It is within walking distance of most of the... More

Dear Trip Advisor Guest, Thank you for your feedback. My apologies for the misunderstanding however please understand that we did not put you in a room that does not have air conditioning. The note on the thermostat explains that the new thermostat that was just installed is not currently operating and that you must use the actual controls on the... More

Great location for the price ! Newly renovated . One block from liberty bell and a short walk to Penn's landing for great selection of restaurants. The only shortfall was the pool is rather dark and in need of better lighting . Otherwise don't pass this hotel up !

Nice hotel, great location; however, on leaving, the front desk refused to provide me with a receipt. I cannot have a receipt for something I paid for? When I got home and looked at my credit card, the total was $199.99. I called the hotel and they said it was Expedia that took the money. Finally, after one hour, Expedia... More

Dear Trip Advisor Guest, Thank you for your comments. To clarify, we would have only had a receipt for any incidentals you might have incurred during your stay but we would not have had a receipt for your guest room charges. That is how Expedia handles their transactions. We are very sorry for the misunderstanding and trust me there was... More
