This is a great hotel for the area- very convenient for most everything. The complimentary breakfast is great, not a typical hotel breakfast. Fairly clean, nice staff. The elevators are horribly slow and always packed. I would suggest you plan on attending for 4th of July- requesting a room on the 19th or above door facing the Franklin institute for... More

This is my 4th stay at this hotel. It's getting a little old and needs a facelift. Circular construction is a little confusing when you get off the elevators but the views and worth it. Free breakfast in TGI Fridays and convenient to City Center and subways.

We stayed at this hotel for a wedding and really loved this place. My wife lost a dress while our luggage was held the next day and the fine hotel staff found it, kept us updated and even hand delivered it to us in NJ!! I can thank Dan and all the staff enough for a great experience.

$500 for a room and parking. Internet code did not work. Called desk and was told to use the $9.99 option and I would not be billed. I was billed. Billing: My emailed bill did not include a charge for valet, a charge that was later added. Also, billing issues as above. Lost items: I called the desk to follow... More

I've done a lot of travelling and as a Hilton Gold member I really like staying in the Embassy Suites line. However, of all that I've stayed at I would rate this one as just ok and at or less than average. In the room there is nothing that really upset me, but there was nothing that really made this...

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. I am sorry we did not meet your hotel needs while in Philadelphia. We are a very unique Embassy Suites property due to location and building structure. Some of the standards you are accustomed to having with the Embassy line we may not due to the size of the building. I have... More

The location is on a busy street 3 blocks from the convention center. The suite was complete with a huge livingroom, a kitchenette and a bedroom. Clean room. Comfy beds and free breakfast! Great deal. The only drawback is that it's not close to the shopping area. The breakfast buffet complete with an omelet station is well worth it! Good... More

Hotel location is excellent. Hotel staff, breakfast, and evening reception were all satisfactory. The guest rooms are very dated. Particularly the fold out bed was very uncomfortable. Valet parking costs is similar to other parking garages in the area.

Our party of 7 recently traveled to Philadelphia for a long weekend. We booked two suites at this hotel, and it was a great decision! The suites were very spacious, and the location was great! We were within walking distance to many attractions and a short "Phlash bus" or taxi ride to many others. The manager's reception each evening was... More

if your not looking for a five star hotel, or not bothered by long elevator waits, lack of up dated rooms, average quality food , but a polite staff this is the hotel for your family, but for Romance unless you do not care I wouldn't suggest this Hotel

I have to stay I was pleasantly surprised by the large room Embassy Suites provided for the price. Additionally, there was a small kitchen with a sink, microwave, refrigerator, and counterspace in case you had groceries. The bathrooms were very clean. I also had a choice of watching TV on the couch or in the bedroom. Nice setup!
