I was a bit apprehensive about the hotel due to a couple of negative hotel reviews but I couldn't have been happier. The location is Great - immediately accross the street from the East Market SEPTA stop and regional rail line that I took when I arrived at the Amtrack station at 30th and to depart from the airport. It is also next to the old Reading Railroad building that is now occupied by local food and produce vendors.
The hotel is only 2 short blocks north of Market Street that is the main downtown street. We walked about 5 city blocks to the concentration of historic sites.
Many past reviews are accurate that the neighborhood is not good but that is the only negative about the hotel.
All the hotel employees were friendly and helpful.
A full cook to order breakfast incuding omelets and pancakes and happy hour is available each day on the 10th floor. Hilton Honors Gold and above get free breakfast (regular $16.95) and 1 drink per night.
The hotel was clean and modern.
We really enjoyed Philly, especially Barnes Foundation Museum (1500 impressionist and post impressionist paintings) in Marion, PA and Rodin Museum. The only negative about Phily is the crazy beer laws. Beer is not sold in grocery or convenience stores or liquor stores. I found the Pac A Deli on 12th and Chestnut to buy Yuengling Beer, the oldest brewery in America located in Pottstown, PA
My friend and I were both extremely pleased with the hotel and I would stay in this area and at this Hilton Garden Inn again.
