We stayed here two nights while visiting the historic district.....Independence Hall,Benjamin Franklin's printing press, the Philadelphia mint, etc. It was a busy weekend with many tourists. Everything was in walking distance. ...actually the Visitor's Center was around the corner? We went on a twilight tour with a volunteer guide one night at 6 pm. The hotel had a friendly staff, clean rooms and a rooftop pool. The only problems were the high price for parking and no breakfast and that the two rooms I booked were not adjacent.

Room Tip: We had breakfast at Starbucks which was one block away.

We took our grandchildren to Philadelphia to see the Liberty Bell and other sights. The hotel is within walking distance. Our room was clean and comfortable and I had an offer for free parking which was an added bonus. The children especially enjoyed the pool on the roof of the hotel. The only negative was that the breakfast buffet was somewhat stale. Breakfast was not included in the cost of the hotel..

Dear Ms. Kathleen H.,

Thank you for the perfect rating! We are so happy that you had a great stay and I'm glad you had spent some time at the Rooftop Pool. Yes, like you said, everything is at walking distance from the historical attractions, restaurants and shopping. I have shared to our Director of Food and Beverage about your comments on the breakfast buffet. Looking forward to welcome you back to our Hotel.

Regards.
