The suites in this hotel were quite large, well appointed, and immaculate. The breakfast (made to order) was excellent. The location is terrific and close to the Barnes Foundation and other museums. The staff was welcoming and the hotel restaurant was good as well.

Background: My husband and I traveled to Philadelphia for the Love Run Half Marathon. (Embassy Suites PCC was one of the race host hotels.) Booking/Check-in: I made our reservation directly through the hotel’s website using the race discount code. We arrived after 4 pm on a Saturday afternoon and were able to check-in immediately, there was no line, etc. The... More

This hotel is located near several museums. The neighborhood is very nice. There are decal places to eat within walking distance. When I arrived had valet parked. Parking is very expensive. It is $50 for the one night. The check in line was slow but the crew was attentive answering all the questions. The rooms are large and have several... More

It was a nice stay at this hotel, huge rooms, kitchenette, working table and sitting area. Even too much of space for me. Overall, I liked it, however, the reality is a way different from the real view as pictured in hotel's photos -the hotel is simple, comfortable, but needs renovation in public places; there are no signs of luxury...

Priced similarly to other hotels in the downtown area I was delighted with my room of the room - a whole suite with sofa, microwave & fridge etc - which was clean, well equipped and well serviced. Rooms are very quiet and have balconies with lovely views over city. The breakfast was fabulous - hot choices cooked to order and... More

This was downtown in the bussiness district. I was an excellent hotel and I enjoyed the stay. The staff was pleasent and the room was great. The breakfast was very nice, lots of choices and variety. Nice trip. Only knock would be the price of parking to stay there. It seems everything in downtown was expensive to park. 50.00 dollars... More

We stayed here for St. Patrick's Day weekend and our stay was fabulous! The staff in the hotel was extremely friendly and very accommodating! Our room was very spacious! We had a great view of the parade form our balcony.

Recently stayed here for a business meeting. Have to say having stayed at other Embassy Suites this one didn't live up to my expectations. To be fair here are the pluses and minuses. Plus - good location, top-floor meeting room with balcony, evening happy hour, big room. Minus - old outdated room, thin walls, awful breakfast, slow elevators, no maid... More

I would like to begin with all my positives. The hotel service and staff were kind and consistent throughout my stay. They seemed to be aware and acute to any problems. Also, the breakfast was fabulous! The omelets were superb, and there were many options to chose from. One side negative might be that the breakfast quarters (the upper part/additional... More
