The building dates from the 1920s when it was an annexe to the City Hall offices. It is now a lovely modern hotel with many original features still retained.
Prior to my arrival the hotel contacted to ensure my stay would be as enjoyable as possible. I flew into Philadelphia airport and caught the local train service for $7USD to Market Street East station, then it was a 5minute walk to the hotel. You can also get a cab, and the hotel advised it was $27USD.
I had a corner suite which was large and roomy, with a good view over the city.
Bar and restaurant were very pleasant. Breakfast was not included in my booking and this was approx $20USD including tax. Although there are local diners aplenty if you prefer to eat outside.
