We went to Philadelphia for the annual Flower Show (worth a visit, by the way) and wanted a hotel reasonably close to the Philadelphia Convention Center. At about six blocks, the Wyndham Philadelphia Historic District met that criterion. What we didn't realize was that the location was great for a lot more than that. It is just around the corner from the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, and close to a number of good restaurants in the Old City area. The hotel staff was friendly and accommodating. The lobby is clean and inviting, and the room was well appointed. Though it is a non-smoking facility, our room initially smelled as if someone had smoked there, but not enough to cause us to request a change. The only down side was the parking garage which was dingy and kind of scary -- not to mention expensive (what is up with the high parking prices in Philadelphia.) All-in-all we would definitely stay at the hotel again.
