“Best Brand in the Hilton Chain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights for a triathlon; my experience was completely outstanding. The staff went above and beyond to ensure I had everything I needed to be comfortable and have a great race on Saturday. I was unaware that the reservation allowed for dinner Monday-Thursday, that was a fantastic surprise. Be sure to stop and chat with Jasmine or Holly at the Front Desk - hese two ladies clearly don't work here for a paycheck; it is obvious they truly enjoy their time when on duty.

The lack of wifi was slightly disappointing but not worth getting overly upset about.

I will be sure to return whenever I am back in Philadelphia.

Very nice suite hotel with full kitchen in the room. Free internet but you have to plug into the ethernet, no wifi in room. Great location. Rooms and bath were very clean and beds very comfortable. Furnishings are maybe slightly outdated but everything is functional. Noise was not an issue. Aircon worked fine. Studio is one big room with a king bed and fold out couch across from each other, small kitchen and nice bathroom. It could sleep 4 in a pinch, and is perfect for a couple with one or two children if the kids don't mind sharing the fold out couch. 2 bedroom has another room next door with a king bed and full bath. Check in was fast and easy. Staff was very helpful and accommodating in changing our room to meet my family's need at the last second. Parking is free if you find a spot on the street (which is not easy), or in an open gated lot about 1 block from the hotel for $5 day with in/out privileges all day. We did not partake in the free breakfast as we had family plans. Prices seemed a bit high but we were there during the US open golf tournament so I expect prices were high all around Philly. I would recommend this hotel and would not hesitate to stay again.

This hotel was very nice, clean, comfortable, and convenient. The suite was very clean, the staff was very helpful, and the hotel was very clean. The complimentary breakfast was surprisingly good. The only negative of this hotel is that there is no wireless in the hotels - requires a phone cord, but my computer has only usb ports...

Stayed for three nights for US Open. Very convenient for that and we liked that there was direct access to the next door Hilton Delmonico's restaurant, through 2nd floor. Rooms clean and comfortable and very helpful staff. Front desk went above and beyond to print stuff out. Recommended.

From the time you walk in the door til the time you walk out, you will feel at home by the efficiency and kindness of the employees and the excellent clean, quiet,and comfortable rooms. I love the "Welcome Home" the desk staff tells me when I enter after a stressful day. This is my 3rd or 4th stay and every time it's the same, so it does fell like a home away from home.

arrived at 11pm, lady at front desk met us with the dullest look there can possibly be. No smile, no greetings. I know it's late and I looked no better, but then, that's why I do not work night shifts.
Room was clean, carpet new, no smell of smoking, quiet...I was happy about that...but there were little things like...the foot towel on the bathtub was soaking wet...the bed was made improperly, list of TV channels was outdated, elevator is old, all scuffed up and covered in dings...I felt like I'm at Holiday Inn, this Homewodd Suites is no comparison to the nice ones I stayed a lot at in California.
Next morning though there were different people at the fron desk, and they were wonderful! big smile, standard phrases such as "Good morning, sir!" all made me happy.
Breakfasts were fine, with exception of scrambled eggs with pieces of beef in it, I've never seen it before, and my indian girlfriend didn't appreciate it...tasted very bland too... but free food, good enough:)

When checking out, there was nobody at the front desk for 10-15 min...maybe the lady stepped out to the bathroom, I understand, but that's why other hotels have 2 people at the front desk.

Overall, if I had a choice for that price, I'd definitely try another hotel.
