This hotel is situated right in the downtown Philadelphia. If you are here to see the historical attractions, this hotel will be very convenient. You could walk to most of the attractions and Chinatown. The hotel provide excellent customer service and the rooms are very well kept and updated. The rooms are very clean and provides the guests with free coffee and tea. If you need to get a personal fridge or microwave, the hotel will provide you one without any charge.
However, there are two things which i did not like about the hotel. Internet access is not free except for the Lobby. The charges for Internet access in the rooms is very expensive. I am not sure why a hotel of this caliber would not offer their guests free Internet access everywhere. It is very unreasonable to ask their guests to come to the lobby if they would like to get internet access for free.
The other thing which I did not like about the hotel is the parking. I understand that the hotel is situated in downtown and parking is limited. But, if you are staying in the hotel the hotel could offer some sort of discount to their guests. Unfortunately, hotel does not offer any discounts to their guests. The Valet parking is $50 a day with in and out privileges, while self parking is $22 a day without any in and out privileges. So anyone who wish to park here should be prepared to pay a premium rate for parking. So my suggestion to anyone is that, if you are going to stay here, park the car in the self park parking lot and leave it there for your entire stay and walk or take public transport to move around the city.
Other than these two things, Hotel can definitely be recommended to anyone. The hotel staff offer excellent customer service and are very friendly. Overall excellent hotel.
