“Great Stay in Philly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

We had the opportunity to stay at the Warick this week. The hotel was beautiful, and its staff was welcoming, friendly, and very helpful. The room was large, and had a very nice view, work area and sitting area. The bathroom was also big, and well-stocked with amenities. I would definitely recommend staying here. It made our stay feel more like a small vacation than work.

thoroughly classy, the building itself, and Radisson does a pretty solid job running it that way. The top floors are private condos, and that keeps the pressure on it being upscale and influences the overall flavor. The staff was highly professional and overall just as one would expect in a worldly downtown first class place, but first class not in a super-posh way, just more the kind of old-fashioned "we do things very well" way, which in fact I far prefer. And building itself, and the way it's nestled in a very nice neighborhood, gives an overall feel that is not found too many places in center city. Very nice, though I thought the bedding which was perfectly clean might want a little upgrading.

We stayed at this hotel for only one night in early December. The front desk was friendly, the room comfortable. The bathroom was a little strange with a high sink and low toilet. When we left, my husband forgot his toiletry bag in the bathroom. Over six weeks later he called the hotel to see if they still had his bag. Unbelievably, they did and shipped it to him within two days. I was amazed. The housekeeping person was extremely pleasant. Also, I received a personal note from the manager when I complained about the cold draft in the restaurant coming from the front entrance door. She explained that the situation was being corrected. Parking is a little pricey but it is that way at a lot of central city hotels.

My family and I stayed here during Christmas week to see a limited-edition run of Jekyll & Hyde (show was average, but star Constantine Maroulis was FANTASTIC). I am a Club Carlson Rewards member and didn't have any expectations about the hotel, as I had earned a stay with my points. I was absolutley impressed by the hotel, but more importantly, the service (five-start). The location is great as is the historic grandeur of the hotel. The comments about the hotel being 'rundown' are truly not warranted. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, the staff treated us with white gloves service. Many fantastic restaurants such as the Tequilas and a gem of a find in Le Pain Quotiden.

Amazing! The room was fantastic, the staff in the hotel and the Tavern17 were very helpful and polite. Our room wasn't ready yet when we checked in which for us wasn't an issuse but they apologised and upgraded us plus they gave us a complementry breakfast for both mornings plus a couple free drinks from the bar. Nice looking hotel and great atmosphere. Great job Radisson!

This Hotel is in a good location and you can walk to many attractions easily. It is a historic building with a very nice looking spacious lobby. in room coffee was good quality. You can get free wired and wireless internet easily just ask front desk for an access code. Sleep number bed was interesting but we sort of can sleep on any bed so not a big deal for us. A/C was a bit too loud. The room we were given (716) was facing a quiet galley and we had a good night sleep. Early check in at around 1pm without any problem. There's even a free bottle water offered in our spacious room. In general, we recommend this hotel for downtown Philly.
