First, the location is ideal to explore the historical parts of the old town like Liberty Bell and also very close to MINT where visitors can observe how the dollar changes are made. We stayed in a suite on the top floor, which is big enough to accommodate 3 people. Although everything looks like and smells as an old hotels, it's true the room is spotless clean and all work well.
The hotel is also within easy walk distance to some very good local restaurants and to subway. We used the subway to visit Pennsylvania University and take our trains.
Second, we're indeed impressed by the efficiency of services here. As soon as you any any request, the reception staffs can handle very fast either for the sofa bed or rental of an umbrella. Breakfast is served in their glass ceiling room with a lot of choices. People can make pancakes on their own. The lobby area is very charming. There are lemonade and fresh fruits all day. In one word, very pleasant stay during our recent tour on the eastern coast (before Sandy came of course).
