The room was so well decorated and comfortable, the staff was friendly and helpful, the parking is so convenient and quick (not something you can say often in a major city) I had my car within 4 minutes. I ordered room service... More

Great Hotel within walking distance of many great attractions! Hotel was clean, smelled GREAT and our room was immaculate. The pool was a welcome mid day break for the kids and was fantastic. There was some noise from the repaving on Market Street- but being a "city" hotel nothing I wasn't prepared for or that the hotel could have done... More

I loved the pool on the 8th floor, the staff was nice and very helpful. I would visit over again and definitely recommend this hotel when staying in Philadelphia. The parking price was too high and that was for valet. There was no self parking.

The way they designed the rooms is well thought for they are very comfy, elegant and functional. The hotel looks and feel new. The location is very convenient too, especially if you are a tourist. All the staff are helpful, polite and very nice. Thank you so much. We will make sure to recommend you.

Liked the look and feel of the hotel. Actually thought the bed and pillows were good though some colleagues were less than enthused. Almost unanimous opinion that walls were too thin though... Slept in quote a few different hotels in New York and none were let as much street noise in as this one. Other rub was they placed almost... More

Bed was great, and I loved the shampoo/soap/conditioner dispensers in the shower. No fumbling with small bottles trying to read which one was shampoo. But all tubs/showers should have grab bars for safety. Electrical plugs abundant (including USB plugins), including some right next to the bed - bravo! I loved the couch/coffee table combo, comfortable and practical, but no views,... More

Our room on the concierge floor was a little nicer than average U.S. hotel rooms. The concierge lounge itself was closed several days we were there, and had a TV blasting the entire time, so it wasn't actually pleasant to visit.
