I really enjoyed my 3 night stay here. The shuttle bus service and friendly driver were great and they stored my luggage safely when I went to another city for one or two nights. I thought it was a great and very spacious room considering the low price I made. And the breakfast buffet was great. As someone who was... More

When we arrived, there were no toiletries in our room (no soap, shampoo, conditioner, etc.), so we called down to the desk and they sent someone up right away with about... More

My fiancee and I recently stayed here, for the first time, around the holiday and were thoroughly impressed. We have stayed at many hotels in the Philadelphia region and I personally can say this ranks up there as one of the better ones. The hotel is very clean and service was top-notch. The front desk manager, Nick was very welcoming... More

Our view of the bridge and the river is breathtaking. The room is updated, clean, very nice inside. The staff is a whole another story in its own: Any single thing we needed was accomodated. Everyone from breakfast hall attendant to day and night time management are very friendly, caring, and just plain nice. Parking is free for hotel guests... More
