The hotel is situated right in the heart of Center City. It is close to all the good restaurants, theaters, and landmarks. The hotel itself is clean and the rooms are in good shape. The hotel restaurant is decent and the staff attentive to your needs. The lobby bar is lively and a good place to grab a cold one,...

Dear Roger, First and foremost, thank you for being a Diamond Hilton HHonors member. We're glad that you enjoyed some time in Standing O Bar/Bistro and appreciated our great location. Our Executive Lounge does offer a complimentary continental breakfast including two hot items, and a complimentary evening reception with hot and cold hors d'oeuvres.

The room was very small - hardly what I'd call an executive king room. There was barely room to maneuver around with the odd corner-shaped room. No amenities other than a hair dryer were in the room. The fridge barely got cold enough to cool water.

Decent location in center city - only three blocks away from Ritz and one block from Union League. High-floor room was clean and staff was kind. Not my first choice in Philadelphia but if others are booked i will happily return again. Do not hesitate to book.

My stay was nice, clean and comfortable but the price was a little high. Location was in the heart of the city which allowed for a great view and great access. Dinig was excellent. compliments to a very attentive staff in the restaurants.

Great Hotel! Staff is always super friendly and accommodating. Online check in for Hilton Honors members is a great time saving idea. Location is the best for subway travel (right underneath hotel) and super convenient to South Philly sports complex. Close walking distance to multiple eating and drinking establishments. I have stayed here numerous times, and will continue to do...

We were in Philadelphia for a University of Pennsylvania graduation. It was a beautiful and glorious weekend. We chose Doubletree City Center because of its very central location and affordable room rates (for a big city). First night in room 1008 we got very little sleep because of noise. Noise in the hall, noise in the room next to us,...

The DoubleTree is where my boyfriend and I choose to stay every time we come to the city. It's an excellent location, we are always warmly welcomed, and the rooms are a wonderful value for the price. The only trouble I encountered was from the rude man at the bell desk, and I am not going to penalize the hotel...

All was pleasant and uneventful (as it should be). The room was clean and generous. The club facility was a lovely surprise with the complmentary beverages and snacks. Parking in this busy downtown area is generally expensive but it was not a surprise and was convenient with self park and unlimited in/out during our stay. We did add a day...

I stayed here on business for a conference held inside the hotel. Everything was quite outstanding. The size of the room was excellent. The meeting rooms were very good. Perhaps the best thing about the hotel was the food. They did an excellent job preparing good meals for a large number of people. Lunches and dinners were particularly good. I...

Dear Jason, We appreciate the review. Our conference food doesn't get mentioned in this forum often, but we're we're proud of it and we're glad that you brought it up! The eggs (we assume you're talking about scrambled eggs served on a buffet) are in fact real eggs, nothing powdered about them. Finally, we completely agree, our central location can't...
