Our stay was wonderful at this hotel. We were in walking distance of everything we wanted to see. Our room was clean and large. The staff were all very kind. I wish we had had more time to check out the Hotel bar. We would stay there again!

Michael at the front desk was helpful with my "delayed" checkout. I don't remember her name, (SORRY) the young lady in the lobby helped me find a UPS Store, showed me where it was and even helped me get my packages to the UPS Store. Both went above and beyond to help! Thanks. Rob Ciarlo

I really enjoyed staying in this hotel. First and foremost, the location is fantastic. My husband and I took the subway from the airport and were pleasantly surprised to find that the hotel was only steps away when we came out of Jefferson Station. This is the China Town neighborhood, and we could see right away that we were just... More

With this hotel, you are in the heart of downtown. There is an adjacent parking garage that is billed directly to your room. Follow the instructions for managing your key card as it is your in/out access for parking (without incurring additional charges). Lobby is small, and restrooms require a key card to access. You are downtown, this keeps non... More

It was a pretty good hotel. It had a pool and what they called a "spa" but what I would call a "hot tub" (max occupancy 6 people I think). That was nice. The pillows were too uncomfortable - unfortunately we only stayed one night, so we didn't know to change to the other pillows. However, when we checked out... More

Excellent location. Near all of the historic sights and lots of restaurants and night life. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. You are steps away from reading terminal market, mall and the liberty bell. They serve popcorn in the lobby and the hotel was nice.

We were originally booked for the Embassy Suites for two nights. When we arrived there, our room had been cancelled due to a credit card snafu that I was unaware of and the hotel was over sold. The front desk clerk was rude and uncaring. I work for Hilton in NY so my manager quickly booked us at Hilton Garden... More

This hotel is on the edge of China town within a block of the convention center and Reading market. Unfortunately, it's not quite up to HGI standards.
