After having read a few of the other reviews, I was a little apprehensive about our stay at the Hilton City Line...but, I am happy to say, I was nervous for naught. The hotel was recently renovated, so the issues mentioned previously are not applicable. Our room was CLEAN & new, the lobby was warm and welcoming, the staff was superbly trained and friendly, and the valet service was a big help to a mother of an active 7 month old. I must particularly single out CHANDRA at the front desk for her pleasant professional demeanor, and prompt assistance with all our issues. She truly made our stay special, and we thank her for all her help. The hotel provided a tremendously expansive buffet breakfast, and the chef was more than happy to accommodate my picky omelet requests (one egg yolk, rest egg whites, no oil, etc.). We also ordered room service, and we very pleased with the quality of the food. One aside to hotel management..the old menus in some of the rooms need to be replaced so availability of items are accurately represented. When entering and exiting the hotel, we were always pleasantly greeted by either the concierge, the bellman, or the hotel manager. The always asked if there was anything we needed, and we were grateful for the assistance they provided. We were unfamiliar with the area, and needed instructions, and were promptly helped. On word about the area...this is not in central PHILLY, so be aware when you make the reservation. It is, however, very close to the train line, so you can reach anywhere in Philly via the train. Fortunately for us, it was right around the corner from our in-laws and the university, so the location was perfect. Also, we drove in, and the area was easily accessible by car.
ALL things considered, we were very satisfied and pleased with our stay, and will definitely stay again.
