Good...centrally located, you can walk to all the major galleries/museums in Philadelphia, and to the historic attractions by the river. easy also to walk to the main shopping areas.
generally a pleasant part of town to amble round in..urban gentrified inner city chic type scene
Front desk v helpful, free pcs in basement, free breakfast ( though only cheap nasty sugary yoghurt prcvided)
Rooms well furnished and comfortable
V noisy at night, due to street noise and poor sound insulation meaning plumbing noises from other rooms are audible
Most rooms face due West, there is no air con and you will come back in spring summer to a sweltering room. No ceiling fans.
No tea/coffee making facilities in rooms.
