I've stayed here twice, once in November and again just recently. The hotel is in an excellent location for seeing some of the historic landmarks in the area. It's also fairly close to the convention center. I stayed in two different styles of room. In November it was the extended-stay type room, complete with a kitchenette. Recently, I stayed in...

This hotel was nicely appointed for a weekend getaway to Philadelphia. The lobby is bight and welcoming, with friendly desk staff. The elevators travel high speed, getting us to the 17th floor in no time. Our room was a king studio, with amenities including microwave, fridge, cups, plates, and silverware. The bed was extremely comfortable. No complaints about the room....

Our family had a long weekend here. Staff was warm and friendly (including the Courtyard 50 yards down the street where my gps told me to stop - stepped outside with me to show me where I needed to be & how to loop around to get back there) Had a beautiful view of City Hall. I knew valet parking...

Parking and valet tough when u first arrive and have to figure out to stop in middle of street practically and yell for valet - i did LOL. All in all good experience

We spent two nights at this hotel. The room was large and clean. The hotel staff was hospitable and helpful. We enjoyed the breakfast and the staff in the breakfast area were nice. The breakfast area was clean. The hotel provided theme nights for the guests to enjoy and get to know each other. We would stay there again.

The hotel is in a great location, right at city hall in center city. The hotel is an old building, very beautiful. I had a corner room and had floor to ceiling windows on two sides of the room. The carpet, wall paint and bed were relatively new. The bed itself was very comfortable, without the sag in the side...
