Centrally located and surrounded by a lot of restaurant options, this hotel is very beautiful. The sumptuous architecture of this old historic building is really amazing and the lobby is simply astonishing.
The staff is very professional and smiles are always on their face.
Our guest room was nicely decorated with luxury linens, a lovely bathroom all done in marble, with a separate toilet/shower area (no tub in our room), fridge and coffee/tea facilities. The room was smaller than expected and the double beds were really SMALL. We had booked a suite for our family of 4 and we felt a lack of comfort.
Internet was another downfall as it hardly worked from my suite, even though we had paid for it. The free wifi only worked well in the lobby. (thanks for refunding our money)
We felt very uncomfortable when arriving in the hotel, after a tiring shopping day, with lots of bags, and there was an Oscar red carpet scene in the lobby in front of us. We didn't know it, but there was a dress-to-impress party in the lobby, including a fashion presentation by Saks Fifth Avenue and the guests were watching The Academy Awards broadcast projected on big screens. It is a big event in Philly and we didn't know anything about it.
All in all, at least I could take advantage of the gym room, it was very nice.
