The hotel is ideal for the theater-goers, with parking attached to the hotel (fees apply.) The guest room was exceptionally clean and large. From the front desk searching for a restaurant for us, to the housekeepers who asked if we had what we needed, and the manager who immediately addressed a non-hotel guest who was loitering in the lobby, it...

We made reservations originally for three nights, then our plans changed and we tried to cancel the second two nights. We met with firm resistance from the booking agency (an on line company I won't name) who told us we could NOT cancel reservations, and we'd pay whether we stayed or not, claiming this was "hotel policy." Apparently it wasn't... More

I recently stayed at the hotel for work. All of the staff was very accomodating and pleasant. I was able to check in early, which is always a bonus. I hate getting the "your room is not ready, check in is at 3" speech at a hotel. There is an attached parking garage, which is great in downtown Philly. It... More

Picked this location due to proximity to work project. Good location in Midtown Philadelphia. Rooms, very average, nothing special. Walls very thin, could hear the person next door talking on the phone as if he was in the same room. On-site parking garage says "self parking", but you have to leave your keys with an attendant. Attendant had the impression... More

We had a great few days here. Nice central location, cheap, clean, big room. The breakfast was okay, a bit busy and hard to find a table, but for what you pay, you really can't complain. Nice pastries, toast etc. A pretty good way to start a days sightseeing.
