I travel a lot for my job and more times than not when checking in to a hotel the front desk receptionist are nice but at this hotel they really know how to treat a guest. Giancarlo Rodriguez was exceptional when I checked in. He suggested great places to eat. I would definitely return here for leisure.

Hotel has a cool vibe. There was lots of construction at night so quite loud for our 1 night stay. No bar open for bloody Mary’s at 11 am. Could have had bar open. Good healthy precautions need more reg coffee on room. No need for decaf. They had to bri Fabio and it was all decaf bit corrected soon After . Hate paying so much for valet as well 40.00

Hello Melissa, thank you so much for taking the time to offer us your review. We are glad that even though the times are a bit different you enjoyed the vibe of the property. It is a bit uphill dealing with all the current city restrictions regarding the pool and restaurant however we are very happy that the outdoor seating is now available for the restaurant. I agree with you about decaf! I don't touch the stuff! However some of our guests do requests it regularly and so we add to every room along with regular coffee and tea. Thank you for staying with us and we hope to have you stay with us again soon.

We had a one night stay in Philly the day before my surgery at University of Pennsylvania. We were looking for something near the historical district and in walking distance of the sights. This hotel was perfect! Two blocks to the right was Independence Hall, and two blocks to the left was the Museum of the American Revolution. We were in walking distance of several restaurants, as well. The service was excellence, from the valet parking, to the front desk, to the concierge desk. We had got to visitphilly.com to book our hotel and got several perks along with the room. Check this site out if you haven't already. The room was clean, spacious, and modern. Our only ding against this hotel was the bar. The bartender was not very friendly and his drinks weren't that good. But overall, we had a great stay! Definitely will choose this hotel for a future trip!

Hi 717micheleo, thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to offer us your review. I hope everything went well with your surgery. Participating in the Visit Philly package is definitely a great way to take advantage of our location so in looks like that was a hit! Allow me to apologize if you had any issues with our bar service. I will make sure to pass your comments along to the restaurant manager so he can discuss with his team. Thank you again for staying with us and safe travels!

This hotel starts slowly, picks up steam, and hits it out of the park. All the small things matter. The lobby and particularly the check-in site are not impressive, but the staff is. They answered questions, took care of issues, and handed me water. The room has plenty of surfaces, which is critical. I look out my window and see Independence Hall. There are more than enough towels, a washcloth is already in the shower, which is a great shower. The lobby bar is a great place to watch the game and the food is good. The continental breakfast is great, salmon, etc. There is a goo fitness room in the basement and a pool and a hot tub. Always, there is a lot of very helpful staff. And the location cannot be beat.
