I had a business trip planned to Philadelphia the weekend of Penn Relays and decided to stay at the Westin Hotel on 17th Street. The room was comfortable and cozy, the beds were soft in excess, and the bathroom was clean. I stayed in room 535 and it had a great view and a lot of sunlight. The shower was very confusing to use though, It's directions for hot and cold were completely random and the toilet would start running every once in a while which could get annoying for those that like silence when you sleep. They charged for the internet which was very unpleasant given the room rate, and there wasn't a guide to help you surf the TV channels. I really enjoyed the hotel bar/restaurant. The food was delicious and the servers went beyond themselves to make sure you enjoyed your meal and/or beverage. The Westin is a very beautiful hotel as well, fresh flowers every where, modern decor with a rustic feel, and a grand piano in the mezzanine that had someone playing every now and then to serenade you. I enjoyed my stay and recommend this hotel to those that don't mind adding an extra dollar for great amenities.
