Stayed here at the end of May 2013 with my wife.Drove up from Baltimore and the hotel was easy to find from the interstate,even though the hotel entrance is on 4th NOT Arch!No valet parking here so,even if the parking garage is right next door,I think $25 / night to self park is a tad excessive.The "bellhop" guy was great .helpful and friendly.Front desk staff not so good.They weren't rude,they just never seemed to be in a hurry to serve anyone.The room was fine,clean and comfy with good housekeeping staff.We used the restaurant only once and were not impressed.The breakfast buffet comprised of poor quality food which was served at temperatures ranging from lukewarm to cold.Our server was not very attentive,if we wanted something we had to attract HIS attention every time and even when he brought the bill he stood behind me with his hand outstretched waiting for me to notice him! On the plus side,the hotel's location is excellent.Two minutes walk to loads of bars,shops and restaurants,also 2minutes to the Liberty Bell,tour buses and Ben Franklin's grave!The hotel was changing from Holiday Express to Wyndham during our stay,so perhaps this contributed to to some of the negatives in this review.Even though we were a little disappointed during this stay we will give this hotel another chance when we return to Philly,because sometimes things go wrong and it's not really anyone's fault.Overall ,an average hotel in a great city.
