Nice hotel, good hot breakfast, friendly staff, convenient shuttle to local attractions and restaurants. The only negatives are the street noise (the fan drowned that out ) and the cost of parking $25/ night.

This property is located in the Penns Landing neighborhood, literally in the shadow of the Ben Franklin bridge. On the other side of the (Delaware) river, is New Jersey. I walked from the 11th street station to the property, but there is a closer subway station (2nd Street). Neighborhood is mostly light commercial, not necessarily unsafe, but I wouldn't go... More

We were pleasantly surprised at this hotel! The front desk staff (both night and morning) were extremely congenial and helpful. The room was more than adequate, and the beds were really comfortable. It was also immaculate. And they had some great photos of Philadelphia on the walls. The complimentary breakfast was plentiful with a varied selection. We did not expect... More

We were in town to visit my Dad at Thomas Jefferson Hospital. We stayed elsewhere the first night and ended up booking this hotel for the last 3 nights we were there. It was Valentine's weekend so the price was a bit high but we still enjoyed this hotel. Very functional, comfortable beds and the staff were great. The shuttle... More

The staff was super friendly, the hotel was within 2 miles of everything I wanted to see (even though my tourism was cut short due to this super frigid weather), and it was relatively reasonably priced. Only major complaint I have is that only one elevator was working due to rennovations/upgrades on the other, but that's not something they can... More

Beds were comfortable, room was clean and a great free full buffet breakfast. The free shuttle was nice, but not always around. So only used it once and a while. The guests were loud and woke us up, but overall quite room. The bridge view was amazing! The service was nice, no complaints, they were very accommodating. Early check in,... More

Front desk failed to acknowledge my platinum status. No up grades offered even after requested, but upgraded rooms were available on line later that evening. Tub water temperature was barly warm.rooms are clean and roomy. Housekeeping and maintenance staff were helpful and friendly. No pool. Breakfast crowded amount of food limited.

This is a good, clean and inexpensive place to stay when on business in Philadelphia. I like the breakfast here. It's cold this time of year but I was able to get a cab to travel to a clients, or go out for dinner. Located on the Delaware, this might be the place I come when I come back here... More
