The room, the staff and the breakfast first rate. Cookies everyday. The location close and walkable to many historic sights and restaurants with excellent public bus and subway access within a block or two.

Service at the hotel was great from Sagal who gave us lots of tips to get around the city to the ladies that cleaned our room, and the ladies in... More

Awesome boutique hotel in a fabulous location for sight seeing. Located in the old quarter all sights are easily accessible by foot saving heaps of time. Parking is close by and the loading bay directly outside the entrance makes booking in and out easy. The waffles are a delight.

You may park... More

My husband and I stayed for two nights at the Best Western and were very pleased. The location in the Old City is near all the tourist attractions. The staff was very friendly and responsive to the requests/questions we had. The rooms are a little small, but have a fridge and microwave. Definitely a good place to stay in Phillie!

The hotel is the best location for visiting Olde City Philadelphia and it is located in an older renovated building... The historical features (curved stairway into lobby and the facade) add character and charm.The included hot breakfast served in a bright atrium was more than substantial and the staff was very welcoming and personable.
