Best Western Plus Philadelphia Airport South at Widener University
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Chester
Reviewed November 12, 2013

Best Western has a shuttle that can pick you up at the airport. I HIGHLY recommend this because we had a horrible experience with getting a taxi and the subsequent ride from the airport to the hotel. After one of the worst weeks our family has had, we left a bag with valuables in the back seat of the Taxi. After we realized what had happened we could not recall the taxi # or any distinguishing characteristics. Our last resort was to ask Best Western Plus in Chester, PA, to look over their surveillance footage to help us acquire the information we needed. Due to our emotional state, it was hard to deal with this issue and the manager went above and beyond to help us. The footage was reviewed, they even made a series of calls to find out the name of the taxi company, and offered the hotel shuttle to take my dad back to the airport and back. Best Western Plus helped us narrow our search to one taxi company and provided the phone numbers we needed to then report this company. We still have not recovered the bag BUT this small kindess...having strangers be our advocate in an unfamiliar city, when we were in emotional distress was more a gift than recovering the bag. The manager at one point said, "If it was my people, I would want them to be cared for like this." and knowing that my dad was being cared for was such a relief. And isn't that really what you want in a home away from home? Best Western Plus in Chester, PA has my utter devotion and stamp of approval. Thank you so much.

Room Tip: Use the shuttle that is available. This will alleviate the taxi stress and the possibility of lost...

At the Best Western Plus Philadedlphia Airport South, Widener University, we were especially pleased with the helpful van service, which delivered us to and from local restaurants as well as the airport. Walter, Jay, and Eddie were all extremely helpful in getting our mobility-challenged member in and out of the van. They were all knowledgeable, friendly, and excellent drivers. Courteous and kindly would describe them all very well.

Rooms are spacious, nicely furnished, clean, and quiet. Beds are comfortable. Bathrooms, with walk in shower, are large also. WiFi and Cable are included. The breakfast has a variety of offerings.

With a group, we rented the hospitality room for the evening, having a space for all to meet and greet.

The staff was very accommodating and friendly. They are to be commended for their service.

Immediately adjacent to Widener University, near the airport, and close to both Philadelphia and Wilmington, this motel is in an excellent location.

We lost our connection to go to Aruba so US Airways send us through Phili but we had to overnight there with no bags. They booked us on this Best Western that had 24/7 Airport shuttle service.

My wife asked the driver for a Walmart to be able to buy some things to stay overnight. The driver was kind enough to take us and wait for us.

Later after we were settled we wanted to to out for dinner and the driver also took us and picked us up.

We had a great dinner and experience.

Thank you for turning a bad day into a very relaxing and great experience.

Bad neighborhood. Was told if we went to the local bar/restaurant which they said was nice we should be careful. Our company moved us out of there ASAP. Hotel web site says they have same day laundry service. Girl at front desk said to bring it down by 9 and it would be back by 3. Brought it down next morning and the woman working said they haven't done that in the year she has worked there. She called the manager and he said they don't do that. Well why are the laundry bags in the closet?
