“Very Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Good value when booking via Priceline.

Cons: 1) Parking cost ridiculous; 2) Location a bit far from major attractions; 3) Pool was mobbed with kids; 4) Phone booking agent couldn't provide me with guarantee of two double beds 24 hours in advance leaving me apprehensive, but upon checking was "no problem" to get the desired sleeping arrangement.

Pros: 1) Room was large, clean and had nice view; 2) Good value for price paid; 3) Check-in staff was friendly and quick.

Tips: There's a cobblestone street across from the hotel - park there at $2 per hour (3 hour max from 8am - 10pm) instead of the expensive hotel parking - alternatively park next door for $12 for longer duration.

I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for choosing to stay with us.

our parking rates are very competitive with other full service hotels in the city. We're lower than many and also are among a limited number that offer valet parking service in addition to self parking.

The third party sites don't have the ability to confirm specific room types. However, at our hotel, 1-800 number central reservations or through Hyatt.com requests can be logged. Thank you for recognizing the great job the desk associates did fior you. We get many positive comments on the service they provide.

Please come see us again soon.

Best regards,

Just returned from a 2 day business conference stay, location is beautiful, right on the river, and a short walk to some great restaurants and bars. Myself and my colleagues received excellent service.
The daytime doorman is a first class gentleman, who made everyone feel right at home from day 1, and never missed a beat.

We chose this hotel, as it was a great location and close to where the dinner cruises boarded. A very nice walk to where the boats are, and we didn't have to drive or take a taxi. The front desk staff are very friendly. We enjoyed a quick bite at the bar with a few drinks. Very cozy bar area with comfortable lounge seating as well, where we noticed quite a few people with laptops. The view from the windows is nice as well. I think that was my favorite place in the hotel. Our room was a little disappointing. It was not as nice as the web pictures depicted. It seemed more basic, which is fine if you are a business traveler and just need a place to sleep. The bathroom door was a french-door style, however there was a 1-inch gap between the doors, so if you are traveling with someone, they will be able to see inside if they choose! I requested a king bed, however we were given a room with two full-size beds. The bed that we chose to sleep in had such a bad squeak every time anyone moved. It was not just a mattress spring squeak -- it was as if someone was scraping their nails down a chalkboard squeak. We chose to eat breakfast in the restaurant -- deciding on the breakfast buffet. The hotel definitely made money off of us! $20 pp, and all I had was scrambled eggs, bacon, a slice of toast and a glass or orange juice. The kitchen staff unfortunately were a bit obnoxious. There was only a drape separating the kitchen area from the dining area. I am all for having fun at work, however they were very loud and cursing at each other. If there were families there with small children, it probably would not have been appropriate. I did like this hotel, and would stay here again if it was just for business. If we travel to Philadelphia again for pleasure, I think I may look into a more luxurious hotel.

Thank you for your feedback. It's unacceptable that staff would be loud as to interfere with our guest's enjoyment in general let alone with inappropriate language. I haven't received this comment previously but appreciate your sharing this information and it has been passed addressed with the Chef and team.

We replace the beds as required and I apologize we didn't get to the one you had before the issue developed. It was good to learn you enjoyed your time in the bar and the close proximity to the boarding area for the dinner cruises. I do hope we may have the opportunity to welcome you back on another trip to Philadelphia.

I stayed at the Hyatt Regency for a work conference the first week of February. The hotel is about a 20 minute ride from the airport; approx $28 USD.

The view from the hotel was beautiful, overlooking the water and the museum along the habour front. The hotel itself is a bit isolated from other bars and restaurants within walking distance. Market street is about a 7 minute taxi ride full of shops and restaurants. I wouldn't recommend walking by yourself in the evening or night time. Take a taxi.


I had at the hotel bar. The food was good, a tad bit pricey, but not over outrageous.

The room was clean and spacious. While the decor were modern there were visible signs of wear within the room. the lower parts of the wall had marks on them, the fabric on the chair was worn and furniture had knicks in the wood.

The bed was comfortable and the room was quite. Overall good stay.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the water are serene and picturesque.

Thank you for sharing the comments from your recent stay sailorann. Glad you enjoyed the views along the waterfront. Many guests enjoy the restaurant options available in the old city and society hill areas close by the hotel. Cabs are an option, many like to walk. Our concierge ican assist with information and the doorman can always hail a cab from closeby.

Great to read you enjoyed the bed and the food in the bar. Thank you for the note on the guest room. Our housekeeping team will review this. We have been undertaking a refreshing of some guest rooms that have needed the touch up. I apologize you got into your room before we did.

Thank you for staying with us. We appreciate it and hope there will be another visit soon.

Candy192,

My apologies for the disappointment you experienced in your stay with us. This is certainly not the feelings we want any of our guests to develop during their time with us. Your comments are being shared with our housekeeping and food and beverage management teams for follow up.

In the process of cleaning and inspecting your room any scratches to the paint on the woodwork should have been caught,noted and repaired. The rotation to the pool to address the temperature has been changed for the colder weather we have had and will help. There's no excuse for any type of rudeness or a less than helpful attitude. When we get comments on interaction with the associates of the hotel they are typically very positive. the follow up has begun.

Feedback is important to us so thank you for sharing yours. I wish it had been a great experience but this information will help us. I regret and inconvenience you experienced.

Best regards,

Mike Costello
General Manager

Recently stayed at Hyatt Penns Landing with my husband and 8 yr old daughter. While my husband did business my daughter and I saw some of the sights. We were pleased with this hotel. The room was clean with an updated feel. We were upgraded to a corner room of the 20th floor, therefore had great views of the city and river. Chris in the lobby was great at helping with directions to sites and restaurants. It is a several block walk to the visitor center and historic sites, but very do able. We walked most of the time, except when the temp dropped, we took a taxi. Friendly staff. Parking and food is expensive. Ate at Spasso's Italian Restaurant which was a short walk. Delicious homemade pasta. Went twice. Would definitely stay at this hotel when in Philadelphia again.

Room Tip: ask for a corner room on high floor.

My husband, two young sons and I stayed for a night to see the sites of Philadelphia. What a great location with a beautiful indoor pool. We booked the King Corner Waterview and my sons LOVED watching the boats go down the river and the battleship New Jersey docked across the river. We also had a view of the Benjamin Franklin bridge, the sunrise and the sunset. Since it was vacation, we enjoyed a lovely breakfast in bed that arrived promptly and professionally. I look forward to staying here with each trip to Philadelphia!

Dear MRuben,

Very glad to learn about the fun visitto Philadelphia you had with your family. Glad your boys enjoyed the variety of ships and boats moving up the river......some pretty impressive vessels make their way past the hotel. The USS New Jersey is a great piece of history as well.

There's so many great sights located nearby. Hopefully it won't be too long before you'll be able to come back. We're looking forward to it.

Safe travels,
