Stayed one night. Hotel across from Delaware River. It is new but seems like they have a little trouble keeping up with volume of guests. Waste cans overflowing, room cleaning slow, and needs a little TLC. Our room was in front facing river; very noisy due to traffic & train! Not certain if quieter on other side. Full breakfast very...

The hotel is good value for money and is in a good location on the waterfront and handy for all the tourist attractions. There is a shuttle bus which will take you into the centre of Philadelphia. The choice of breakfast options was great despite the fact the hotel was busy with younger people staying overnight for a concert on... More

This was a great hotel that was clean and the beds were very comfortable. Also, the location was perfect for us, Morgan's Pier was right down the street. They promote a free shuttle and continental breakfast. The free shuttle is only in use from 4pm-10pm most days. I think Saturday might be to 11pm. Also, the breakfast was edible but... More

I found myself traveling at the spur of the moment to address an emotional issue regarding my grandchildren.

Not sure why someone would write a bad review? This hotel meets all your needs as a hotel! Those of you who expect "high pampering" must be the bad review writers.

The people at the front desk were very welcoming! Ken was very helpful, and is a great guy! The hotel provided delicious warm cookies as to our arrival, and a decent complimentary breakfast. The location was very nice and convenient.

Room was very nice, internet speed was string. The road noise kept me awake at night. Given the choice ask for a room on the back side. The Inn is very close to the historic district, just a short walk. I did not have a car but parking is $25/a day, so plan accordingly

Philadelphia is rich of american history and it is worth a visit, but a few dollars more can make the difference. Not familiar with the difference between "downtown" (that is all area between Delaware and Schuylkill rivers) and "center city" (that is the historic district), we went for this hotel located just close to Delaware piers. Avoid it unless you... More
