I've been staying at numerous hotels in the Philly area for the past couple of weeks. This hotel is WAY overpriced for what you get. Also, $25 a day additional for parking. Good location, good service; however, not all rooms are waterfront, and the rooms on the highway side are very noisy all night! Great free breakfast, but it was... More

The staff at the front desk could not have been more friendly, helpful and obliging. The rooms were clean and seemed recently refurbished. Fairly quiet room and comfortable beds. Good complimentary breakfast in large, airy surroundings. One of the amazing features of the hotel is a free, shuttle service that drops off and picks up guests around Philadelphia from 6:30... More

OK.. I am going to give you the skinny on this hotel... First of all, the staff is outstanding! Aazhee, gave me great directions in from the Airport and she is a very pleasent person to deal with. Teeza is the brains of the operations at the front desk.. She legitimately cares about the customers and takes the time to... More

This was an average to maybe above average hotel. The locations great! Right off I-95, walking distance to a lot of great bars & restaurants, near old town philly, right off the water, and easy access to the ferry to NJ. I paid the small amount more to have a river view, which I'm glad I did having a beautiful... More

This was booked online and it certainly was not the cheapest one that was on our 'short list'. We arrived firstly being told off by the parking attendant in an adjacent car park about moving our car in the entry area. (blocked by a taxi). Then a busy and frantic reception up to our "river-view" room. Well, if you call... More

Our room was on the fifth floor and still had a great view of the harbor, river and bridge. Penn's Landing activities were only a couple blocks away. Close enough for my four year old to enjoy the walk. Everything was clean and the staff seemed to tidy several times a day. The front desk staff were very polite and... More

We stayed there Monday through Wednesday and we were able to reach just about everywhere on foot. It's a great location right by the pier and old city. Slept well. The front desk was always helpful. The shuttle driver, Ken, went above and beyond. He provided history on the various sites we passed, provided me with cold water which was... More
