Half of the apartments in this building face an alley lined with garbage dumpsters. Despite Philly's noise ordinance, garbage collection trucks from various companies visit the alley several times each morning often starting at 4:00 am. It is so loud it's jarring! Any noise in this alley becomes amplified due to close proximity to adjacent buildings, so the usual noises (i.e. fans, people) become an extreme nuisance. To avoid the alley, I suggest requesting a room on the 16th or Sansom side of the building. That said, the apartments are furnished with everything you need (even a washer/dryer in the room), the location is excellent, and the staff are very helpful and friendly. One reviewer said the apartments are enormous, but mine is smallish, about the size of a hotel suite, so obviously the sizes vary.
