I found myself traveling at the spur of the moment to address an emotional issue regarding my grandchildren. Traveling by faith when I arrived I couldn't find my Rewards Card and was facing having to pay the full rate when Angel number one, NICK, the manager overheard me, found the card and fixed everything. Not only was he professional but... More

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

OK hotel in convenient location - close to the city center. What's more - there is a free shuttle bus going around 2 miles radius, so you can explore downtown easy. Breakfast is OK, internet is breaking from time to time. Pros - extremely helpful and polite staff. Cons - when you have windows on the highway - there is... More

Like the liberty bell, Betsy ross house and more.The breakfast was pretty good for complimentary. With just not cereal and fruit but bagels and yogurt and pancakes and eggs toast.
