Nice clean hotel, friendly staff however I valet parked my vehicle and about a month later I received a parking Citation from the City of Philadelphia for an unpaid parking citation. Apparently my vehicle was parked illegally by the valet service and they removed the ticket before returning the vehicle to me. To make a long story short, the ticket... More

My wife and I stayed here for five nights at the end of December. We wanted to see Philly. This is a great location to do that. It is situated right across from the City Hall - that was my room's view. We were able to walk to the historic district and to the museums (Franklin, Natural Art,Rodin, etc) which... More

Stayed there for a bachelor party weekend in one of the larger rooms, and the hotel worked great for us. Clean, big, good location and we could be loud and no one heard us, somehow. Would work great for bachelor parties (somewhat tame ones), business travelers, and tourists.

Stayed at the Residence Inn Philadelphia City Center for 4 nights in August 2008 (check-in Wednesday / check-out Sunday). Pros: The location. The hotel is centrally located in Philadelphia and within walking distance of many historical/tourist sites. Furthermore, it is adjacent to City Hall with access to the subway system (the blue line) -- The subway provides quick access (20... More

Our family of four (two adults, 15-year-old, 13-year-old) stayed for three nights in a one-bedroom suite on the 19th floor Labor Day weekend. The room and the hotel worked well for us and we would recommend it to other families traveling to Philadelphia. Pluses: • Two rooms, two beds, and a sofa bed • Clean comfortable rooms and furnishings, large... More

Good Breakfast, Great Location, the rooms are very quiet because this building is a former bank building converted into a hotel so you really cannot here any noise from other rooms. The only two negatives would be the elevators are very slow when the hotel gets full and this hotel has the worst sofa bed mattresses of any hotel the... More

First let me say, I love Residence Inns generally, but his one is tired and inconvenient. There's a wonderful Residence Inn in Conshohocken (suburban Philly) and suggest that, if you're driving, you stay there. This one's almost impossible to find at night, ridiculously understaffed, and all the public areas appear less than clean (dirty doors and windows etc). In addition,... More
