The hotel was very comfortable, and clean. The beds and bedding were very comfortable, and my room was quiet (3rd floor). It was a 10 minute walk from the SEPTA / Amtrak station if you are arriving by train from Philly, Baltimore, or NY. The service was very good, all the staff were very welcoming and attentive. There is a neat gym room, and a nice pool which I didn't use.
The location is not the best at night, but I ordered food from a Chinese restaurant called Joyful Garden, and it was very good and very cheap.
My only issue with the hotel was that the room was a bit cold and it's not possible for guests to adjust the heater/AC in your room (it appears locked and the digital display just says "on").
Breakfast is not included, but internet is (and works well). I booked this through a special at Expedia, and because of that I thought it was a pretty good value.
