I stayed here for 2 nights while in route to my next destination. Having stayed at 3 hotels in Philly in the past 2 months, I was pretty disappointed in this place. Yes, they are all expensive, but for the price of what you are paying to stay near the city center of Philly, spring about $20-30 more a night to stay at a nicer place in a better location. The Hampton Inn is near the convention center, but its on the backside of the convention center on the "not so nice" side.
I was in the middle of a 2 week trip, so used the laundry facilities downstairs. There is 1 washer and 1 dryer. There was a note that if laundry detergent was needed, to go to the front desk. I went up, and they didn't have any. They sent an employee across the street to a small convenience store to get some, and then he forgot to get quarters as I had requested. So, I went over to the convenience store myself. The front desk staff wasn't the most pleasant (ok, slightly lazy) and when I checked in, the employee at the front was just in her socks and no shoes. What!?!
I stayed here the same time as the other poster with the fire alarm incident. The hotel staff told us to go back in after about 20 minutes before the fire department even showed up. yeah,...not sure I want to stay in a large hotel that takes the fire department over 20 minutes to show up...
Also, the guests that stay here seems to be a little more in "party mode" than some of the other local hotels. There was vomit in the elevator, and a lot of young adults/teenagers around. If you are older, and are looking for quiet, this isn't the place for you. I could even hear my neighbor blasting their alarm radio (before the fire alarm went off) at 11pm at night.
Honestly, spring a bit more to stay at the Loews, Marriott or another hotel on the other side of the convention center. Its easier to get a cab, safer neighborhood and a higher caliber of hotel staff.
