Stayed at this place because US Airways cancelled my flight due to "weather", and ended up on a $69 distress rate on my way home from London. Shuttle came almost immediately after I called for it, which was great since I was so tired. Got to the hotel, and the front desk people were extremely nice despite being so busy and full of other stranded passengers. Got up to my room not expecting much, but it wasn't too bad. It was nice to have a balcony with a sliding door even though I never used it. Bed was comfortable, linens clean and fresh. Ordered room service which took nearly an hour for a Reuben and fries to come, and it was pretty sub-par, but I didn't care, I just wanted food and sleep. I passed out from tiredness and was only awaken by a severe storm at about 11pm and my wake up call at 5am. Shuttle to the airport took some time because there were so many people taking it, but I was very, very impressed with the fact that they had at least 4 vans running, largely in part to them also running an off-site airport parking lot here - whatever it takes!
In conclusion, if I were planning on staying at Philadelphia Airport, I'd go with something a little nicer, but considering everything was full, and the rate I got, I was quite happy with the Ramada.
