The hotel is clean with a friendly and accommodating staff. Located near the Delaware River with views of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge. Room was clean and nicely appointed. I found the room spacious and bright, a plus in a downtown location. Located in walking distance (about 15 minutes) to the Liberty Bell and other historic locations. And, the walk allows... More

We were very lucky to get a room here. I recommend requesting a room that face the river and not the highway but the noise isn't a deal breaker. The staff has been fast, friendly and very professional. The room was clean and fresh upon our arrival. I will book here again.

We stayed here for a concert we were attending in Camden. The hotel itself was great, reasonable price, staff was friendly and helpful. Easy walking distance to ferry to Camden. Stress free, will stay again for sure! $30 to park was worth it! Great free breakfast!! Thanks!

We were able to book this hotel last minute--the rooms were clean, beds were comfy and the location was close to downtown AND had a pretty view of the river and bridge. Breakfast was complimentary and staff very helpful. Parking is rough and tight--there is a parking lot with the hotel but it's small and costly ($30).

Very clean rooms and comfortable beds, nice linens. Breakfast is provided and staff is very nice and helpful. Make sure your room doesn't face the highway or you'll have a lot of noise. It's a little out of the way, but on the main bus and subway lines.

Conveniently located to penn's landing and old city. Beautiful, new hotel with spacious, clean rooms. The best part is breakfast!! Tons of breakfast options- eggs, bacon, pancakes, lots of coffee and tea, and all hot and fresh! Parking not free but affordable and accessible considering the busy city. Great for families with kids!
