We went to see the Tall Ships at Penn's Landing. This hotel was great, walkable distance (with a 6 year old) to the event. It was a bit pricey but I think that was due to the event. The free wifi, complimentary hot breakfast, and afternoon tea were all great bonus'. I would definitely stay again.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at the this Best Western. Hotel location was centrally located and walking distance to most of the sights. Room was clean and comfortable. Very quiet room. Breakfast was good with a lot of variety. Housekeeping staff did a great job. Front desk was very responsive and friendly when we needed anything. We would... More

Great hotel , staff was friendly and helpful, good location, the free breakfast was really good. Very clean and the parking a block away. No safe in the room but they offered one by the front desk. There is construction across the street right now but did not affect us in any way.

This was one of the finest stays my wife and I have ever had. This is absolutely one of the best Hotel values you will find, the hotel itself is spotlessly clean and maintained impeccably. The rooms are roomy and furnished beautifully with comfortable beds and era decor that is above any thing you will find in one of the... More

Parking off site was made easy with clear directions and temporary parking permit in front of hotel. Staff were knowledgeable of local restaurants and historic features. Clean, updated rooms. Good breakfast selection with variation during 3 day stay appreciated.

I'll start by citing the helpful, attentive, and courteous staff. Everyone we encountered treated us special, accommodated us, and recommended restaurants and generally helped us out, more so than most hotels. The hotel itself is a historic property, so please keep that in mind. The charms that come with that, others might see as detractors. I could find a slightly... More

When we arrived we were greeted with a friendly welcome, the small lobby looked tired and it did have a feel of a B&B as opposed to a hotel, the room was basic, average at best, definitely didn't live up to the reviews published on this site. The breakfast was a bonus and there was a decent choice including make... More

Stayed one night. Great location near Independence Park. No on site parking but garage is close by. Good lounge where wine and cheese was served at 5:30. Nice opportunity to meet other guests. Staff very helpful. Our room was small by American standards but comfortable. Breakfast was usual Best Western. Eating area very pleasant. Very enjoyable.

What a great place to stay! Staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. Our room was very clean and spacious. This old hotel is updated, very clean and very welcoming. It had alot of charm and character and is in a VERY convenient location to everything (walking distance to most all historic sites and great bars and restaurants). Can't say enough... More

A delightful small boutique hotel. Perfect location in Historic District. Ask for a king bed if possible. Those rooms are larger than the others. Staff was helpful, welcoming and friendly. Complimentary breakfast was adequate but ordinary.
