Really enjoyed the stay here. The rooms were quiet and well appointed. The decor is very chic. Gym was acceptable, not huge, but had most equipment. The location is right in the middle of almost everything downtown. Easy walks to most things you'd like to see. Bar was modern and busy. Service at the front desk and valet was top... More

It's a modern looking hotel in a good location which fails to impress overall. I think in trying to revive an old building and turning it into a hotel, with strange hallways and odd layouts, they lost sight of what they are - a hotel and not piece of art. The service is great and folks are super friendly but... More

stayed for 4 nights... first time in this location- it was secured through hotwire, so it wasn't chosen on purpose. pros: -a great shower. well, at least the water temp and head pressure. the tub drain was constantly clogged and even a short shower quickly filled the tub to ankle depth. -super comfortable bed - a really quiet room. part...

5252, Thank you for sharing your experience. I am glad you enjoyed our super comfortable beds, quiet rooms and of course free water. As you noted our location is central to all things and yes Philadelphia like every major urban area has its share of less fortunate living on the streets. While sometimes uncomfortable, both the city and community do... More

The building used to be a YMCA so it’s a fun and unique space. The decorations are great, too, and the rooms are comfortable! The hotel is within walking distance to many fun things and restaurants. They have an awesome bar with friendly staff, too!

Wonderful central location for teen granddaughters. Quick service by room staff for extra towels and bath amenities. Twisted ankle (or so I thought until I got home 3 weeks later and learned I'd been walking 5 miles a day on a break) on city sidewalk. Staff settled me on restaurant banquet with bags of ice and a wheelchair to keep... More

I was looking forward to the stay here because I read it was a nice hotel. We got the room for a great price at the AAA rate and it was easily accessible to the Convention Center and Reading Terminal Market. However I was a little disappointed in the stay. First, our room did not have a tub, only a... More

Ifeist Thank you for taking time to write about us in your first review. I appreciate that you took time to read other reviews and then chose our hotel. We do have a great location for walking. I apologize that you weren’t thrilled with expense or portions in room service. Our food is great but one of the cool things... More

I recently stayed with my boyfriend for two nights/three days. It's in a prime location as you can walk to essentially every tourist destination. The hotel is clearly meant for business travelers but, was still pleasant for our trip. However I wouldn't suggest using the hotel for a family vacation. The rooms have all of your essentials and is of... More

Ficken, Thank you for sharing your experience. I am delighted you enjoyed our great location, friendly bartenders and mostly your recommendation for a weekend getaway. I’m not certain what happened with your mini bar, though I suspect someone attempted to use it as a refrigerator for which it is not designed. We strive to deliver a 5 star visit for... More

This hotel was awesome! We got it through hotels.com at a rate of $150 per night. It was boutique like, swanky decor, with clean rooms and the staff was very accommodating. In order to use the elevator you have to put your room key in a slot which added an element of security and safety to our stay. We stayed... More

Excellent renovation of old building, keeping the interesting aspects and updating everything else. Nice bar in lobby center stage when you walk in, and modern rooms with all the amenities. Staff were very cordial and although in primarily business area, close to most attractions.
