We found this hotel when we were driving around Philly at 3 AM, exhausted. We were supposed to be staying at a friend's house in South Philly, but no one answered the door. It was the only hotel close by.
The concierge was very nice to us, and that was the best thing about it. It was dirty, it smelled of smoke. The humidity just made the room feel even grubbier and more tired. We needed to make a phone call to our friend, but the phone didn't work. We called the concierge, and she just said "yeah, it doesn't work sometimes." That was her answer for almost all the other questions we had.
We never found any bugs in our room, which was, hallelujah, great. However, I did find myself tip-toeing in the room and walking around in my flip flops, even in the washroom. I didn't even find a blowdryer.
The view was pretty good from my window. You could see the stadium and the bridge. The view was great but that's all there was.
The complimentary breakfast was so sad. Muffins, danishes, cereal and coffee.
It's really a shame, because the foyer was not ugly. Everything else was, though.
