Just left and couldn't wait until I got home to write this review. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The property has a fantastic location, and the beds were so comfortable. We had one of the rooms with a kitchenette and it made us extra-comfortable. The staff were so pleasant and friendly - from kind and enthusiastic Donell at the front... More

Stayed Saturday night before Memorial Day and hotel was full. Even so, staff was polite and helpful. Hot breakfast was exceptional and roving staff was quick to help with any problems. Even with overflow crowd, there was little wait for food and seating was plentiful. We stayed on the top floor, directly opposite the city hall tower, so the view... More

Was in this property for lacrosse tournament on Memorial Day weekend. Had initial concerns since building was old and converted into a hotel but that washed away with the customer friendly staff. Anything was answered well and with a Smile. Valet parking was expensive. Suggest you drop off others including your bags and then park yourself in basement of Macy's,... More

I recently stayed at this hotel while on a business trip. I typically stay at Marriotts because I am a gold member. I chose this one primarily because the Courtyard and Marriott were full. I love the location of this hotel. I was able to walk to great restaurants and to the office that I was working out for the... More

On a recent business trip to Philadelphia for a conference I had the pleasure of staying in this hotel. Overall I found the hotel to be excellent and would recommend it to other travelers. The location of the hotel was perfect for site-seeing. The Liberty Bell, Benjamin Franklin's grave and Betsy Ross' house were all within walking distance. The Reading... More

service was outstanding, especially for a city location. Morning free breakfast was ordinary, but fresh and plentiful. Front desk couldn't be better as was the front door personnel in getting taxis, etc. Would have preferred a door to close off the bathroon sink area.

I can not say enough great things about this place! Especially the staff at the front desk. They went out of their way to make my stay enjoyable! As soon as I mentioned we were in town for our anniversary, they did everything in their power to enhance our stay. The woman checking us in (I may be wrong but... More

Came to Philly for a convention with my family, and we were *so* glad that we stayed here. Right in the middle of the city, very close to the convention center, Reading Terminal Market, and City Hall, and a relatively short walk to Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell (amongst other attractions). Staff was very helpful, and our room was... More

As a frequent traveler, I have experienced numerous hotels and employees. I am so happy to be able to provide a glowing review of the Residence Inn Philly Center City. First, we arrived early to the hotel for an early appointment. We planned on dropping off our luggage and checking in later in the day. The front desk employees, Kellie... More
