“Great location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This was one the best options for an overnight stay close to the historic district and Independence National Park. The location was very convenient and most everything in this district was within walking distance. Parking is difficult so having a garage next store, and an arrangement, made things easy. The hotel and (the historic area) is only about 5 minutes from I-95. The hotel was clean, quiet, and comfortable. The costs were as stated, with no surprise add-ons. The hotel is somewhat expensive, as is parking, but this is the result of the in city location. Rooms were somewhat smaller than in many equivalent hotels, but still functional. The meals, especially breakfast, were very expensive, causing us to find other places to eat.

Room Tip: Not too noisy, but ask to stay away from the street sides of the building, and obviously away from n...

My wife and I (both senior citizens) were impressed by many things at the Wyndham: the extremely friendly staff, the extreme comfort of the beds, the clean, modern rooms and size of the double queen room, the room cleaning staff (who left us a note with a smiley face: "thanks a million for keeping your room so clean")--- when did that ever happen to guests??, the indoor garage being next door to the hotel, thus very handy and rates being reduced by $5 a door perhaps for being a hotel guest. The interior of the hotel was clean and very generous sized. There also was a cab stand next to the hotel. I don't remember if there was onsite dining, but we were in town to eat with relatives elsewhere. so we didn't check carefully for that. And the hotel staff welcomed this review when I praised the hotel to the cashier! As an aside, in past reviews the hotel's renovations were inconvenient; they now are finished. And the price was a steal, given we were in central Philadelphia, I believe.

Room Tip: The double queen room we had was very good-sized. We have NOTHING to criticize!

Dear Milton G.

Thank you for your comments regarding your recent stay. I was glad to read that you enjoyed the hotel and the staff. They really are a great team. The interior renovations have been completed and the place looks incredible. The final phase is now under way on our exterior and when that is complete you won't recognize the building. We can't wait. By the way we do have an on site Restaurant Bar that serves great libations and comfort food. It's just off the elevators in the main lobby. Thank you again and we look forward to your next visit.
