“Nice quiet spot, great rooms, great staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

Some folks think this hotel is isolated--I can understand why, it is a 10-15 minute walk from the sights, but it is right on the water and the rooms have great views of the Delaware river. You can spend $6-8 on a cab ride to the sights if you don't want to walk. I didn't mind the walk and I felt perfectly safe.

The self-park is somewhat of a pain and two elevator rides, and not much less than the valet parking. In retrospect, I would have just valet parked the car.

The hotel itself: Great lobby, nice staff. The concierge I spoke to really knew the town, what to see, what not to see (the casino for instance). I recommend a high floor corner room with a view of the river--not much more, nice layout, lots of windows, very quiet.

I debated 4 vs. 5 stars as this is not really a "high end luxury" hotel, but it was extremely nice and I really enjoyed my stay, and I thought the value of the room and the great staff pushed it to 5. I would definitely stay here again (but valet park!)

Room Tip: High floor corner room with river view

Room was very nice. Women at front desk were helpful and polite. My only complaints are the price of parking and the fact that we had to take 3 elevators to get to our room. I would stay here again, however.

Location was very good. It was an enjoyable walk to the Independence Hall area, with the historical sites. I felt safe walking, there was a pedestrian bridge, it was good to stretch my legs, and the distance wasn't too far. Cabs were easy to get if you want to travel further. Easy on/off from I95.
As others have noted, parking is expensive at $30/night, but I didn't see other alternatives in the area - it is densely populated, and parking is a premium. Get ready for that add-on to the bill.
The hotel was good, not great. Rooms were not large, not small. Bed was not luxuriousness, it was not uncomfortable. Lighting was not good, but also not bad. Very average.
Perhaps it is a four star when compared to other hotels in the area?

Stayed here just for one night with family and found it to be a good all round hotel with large clean rooms and good service. We were able to walk to most of the attractions. My only moan is the price of the car parking as it is out of town.

Wonderful comfortable room overlooking Penn's Landing. Excellent Restaurant, dinner- Prime rib, buffet for Breakfast. Made our trip to the Phila Flower Show a wonderful experience. The door man was so helpful, it was snowing and He parked our car, since I was in a wheelchair He did not want us to get wet. Desk customer service gave us a corner room with views. Miriam Turner

Room Tip: Best view Corner- 2 views room #116

Stayed 2 nights to spend some time in the city. The hotel is on the Delaware river, our room had a great view of Camden. Not something that anybody would ask for but when your view the city from a distance it doesn't seem that bad. Overall the hotel was clean the rooms are up to date with a small fridge and flat screen tv, extra outlets for devices and a iphone speaker dock.
Didn't have any breakfast there but the burgers in the bar were really good. Hotel has a nice size indoor pool. We made the decision to not swim after taking a peek inside. There were tons of kids and I could just imagine how much pee was in there.
Good location, your not in the heart of Philly but a quick walk can put you there.
Parking is 30$ a night but you have in and out privilege

I really liked this hotel! Very spacious rooms and bathrooms, the usual comfortable Hyatt bed, and breathtaking views of the Delaware river and the bridge, especially at night.

Whilst I wouldn't consider this hotel walking distance from Philly CBD, cabs were easy to call from concierge and it is only a 5 mins drive/>$10 fare. Overall, a great base for a short holiday in the city. The nearby Old Town area gives you a sense of the history of the place, as well as lots of cool bars, good restaurants and some kitschy shopping places.

Stayed here on Hyatt points - this hotel is great value on the Hyatt rewards system!
