I stayed at the Doubletree Hotel while in Philadelphia for a medical school interview. Since the school paid for my stay, I can't say much for the cost value other than that the rates seemed fair for the area.
I was very impressed overall by the hotel's rooms and location. The room was very spacious and clean. It was well decorated and the bed was very comfortable. Since the hotel is right in the middle of the Arts District, it got a bit loud from traffic and the surrounding events but it was not too loud that I was bothered by the sound.
The part of downtown the Doubletree is in was very safe and I felt comfortable walking around alone at night. The area was very busy and there was plenty to see in close walking distance.
My only real complaints about the hotel is that the parking was expensive (about $20/day) and it was somewhat difficult to get into traffic from the exit. It is also good to note that the sign for the hotel isn't very obvious when driving toward it so you may miss it when you first pull up. The hotel also didn't have complimentary wi-fi which is something I would have expected from a hotel in this price range. Luckily there were a few open connections from nearby businesses or apartments that gave me a decent enough signal to check my emails once or twice.
The staff at the Doubletree were not exceptional one way or the other. They were friendly but nothing out of the ordinary. They took care of what I needed so I was happy when I left.
