Ok, first the "pros" of this hotel: LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! It's within an easy walk to everything in the historic district and Penn's Landing. The staff was very friendly and parking was convenient and free with a two night stay. We felt very safe walking everywhere. The hotel and our room were clean and the rooftop pool was very nice (we went and looked at it, but didn't take advantage of it.) The towels were awesome. The price was the most reasonable in the area. The air conditioning could be controlled by a thermostat, not turning the knob on the unit. Now, a few minor "issues": when I booked online, the site said the room had a refrigerator and microwave, it didn't. Our view was okay, if you looked straight out, but, if you looked down, there were air conditioners and an obstructed view of the Christ Church burial ground. Check in and Check out were very slow. The bed linens were tricky, you had to use the comforter, because the sheet came back up and tucked into it on top. The toilet paper felt like sandpaper. The tissue box on the first day had about 5 tissues left in it. Breakfast was not included and was extremely expensive, so we got donuts at the 7 Eleven and ate in the room. The channels on the TV were extremely limited (we had Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network, but no Disney). Overall, there's nothing wrong with this hotel, but it doesn't have a lot of the amenities you come to expect in a hotel nowadays.
