Reviewed February 19, 2013

Our son goes to Swarthmore College in Swarthmore PA and this hotel is fairly close.

The rooms are a bit different with a more suite feel to them however not quite as large as other suite hotels.

The free breakfast is a nice touch although it ends at 9am so if your sleeping in youll have to find breakfast on your own.

Prices range around the $129 - $149 rate which is a little high for this area however this hotel is fairly new, clean and comfortable so I dont mind spending a few extra dollars.

Akeyes1231,

Your feedback is greatly appreciated; we strive to enhance each of our guests stay time & again; your input tells us what we're doing right & where we might need a bit of improvement. As you mentioned our rooms are a bit larger than your typical hotel room, we want our guests to feel as comfortable as possible, & we believe that the extra space allows them to do so. For those that prefer to sleep in, our breakfast hours are 6am-9am throughout the week, however on the weekend it's 7am-10am, so those not in a hurry have a little extra time. Again, we greatly appreciate your feedback, and if there is anything that I can do please feel free to contact me via the information below.

Yours In Hospitality,

Hey, this place is not bad. Not bad at all! I had no idea what to expect, honestly. When traveling with family, we usually stay at more upscale locations, and when traveling for work, I'm usually at a Conrad or similar level place. We had to stay here three nights with some other families, and I will honestly say that I was not looking forward to it. But the place surprised me, and in a good way.

Check-in went smoothly. The lady at the front desk was extremely nice and polite. When we got to the room, both my daughter and I were pleasantly surprised at how clean and spacious it was. The place still looks almost brand new. We had two queen beds, which were a bit soft for my liking, but we still slept fairly well. The first night, the noise from outside the building kept me awake, but I got used to it by the second night.

The bathroom configuration is interesting - toilet and sink in one room, and then bathtub and another sink (with wide counterspace) in another room. There is also a small walk-in closet, and a small fridge and microwave. Nice sitting area, and nice flat-screen TV. Desk area had lots of light and, best of all, several outlets. I could charge my laptop, cell phones and Kindle all at the same time. There was an incredible amount of dresser / drawer space for a room of that size. The use of space is very clever. They were able to fit in a lot of basic amenities that business travelers and families need, while not taking up too much space.

The breakfast in the morning is OK, but by the second morning, I was sick of the imitation scrambled eggs. On offer were these so-called "eggs", sausage links, make-your-own waffle skillets, toast / bagels / pastries, cereal, and some fruit. Plenty of milk and juices on offer as well. Dining space was adequate, and the people working to help bring out fresh food and clear tables are extremely friendly.

The location of this hotel leaves a bit to be desired. There is NOTHING within reasonable walking distance. It's in the middle of an industrial area, near main roads, so very convenient for travel purposes, but not for an actual stay. Also, the rooms facing the main roads can get VERY loud at nights, what with the trucks still on the roads. You may want to request a room that faces away from the interstate.

Other than that, our three-night stay at this hotel was very pleasant and an extremely good value for our money. Wireless internet was included for no charge, which is always a plus, and parking was always available. Very nice hotel with more than adequate accommodations for a short stay. We would definitely return again if we were passing through the area.

NUMath Grad,

Your feedback is greatly appreciated; it seems that while you were able to capture each positive aspect of our property, there were still a couple of items that were not to your liking: the scrambled eggs at breakfast, & the lack of things to do in the immediate area. As for our breakfast, we like to offer a few more options than most so that our guests have a bit more variety than the usual continental breakfast options. I will be sure to pass your comment on to our breakfast staff regarding your unpleasant experience with the eggs. As you noted, there aren't any nearby attractions in walking distance of the hotel, but we can provide complimentary transportation to a few. We have an array of local dining options, and of course we're not far from the city where there are tons of tourist attractions! So the next time that you visit us, be sure to stop by the front desk, or our brochure rack so that we can show you exactly how to spend your stay! We anxiously await your return!! If you have any other questions feel free to contact me.

Stayed here while on a short trip to Philly. Accommodations were nice and pack and play that we requested was ready to go when we got there. Breakfast was nice in the morning and the pool was great to play in. Because we had a pack and play they mentioned that they gave us a free bath toy (we actually couldn't find the toy, but my wife was too shy to ask about it, so I would chalk it up to us being the aberration, and its really a nice extra to give that out)

If there is one drawback it was the lack of a tub in the room (that I see another posted posted about). Was a little disappointed not to have a tub in our room for my daughter to take a bath, but they had no way of knowing that.

Highly recommended. GPS is not accurate with the listed address, when they tell you to punch in the new address, use the new address and keep going you will see it.

KosherConsultant,

Thank you for such positive feedback! While it seems that overall you were able to enjoy your stay, a couple of items seemed to be lacking. You were in fact supposed to receive the bath toy for your little one. This is a part of the Marriott Tots Travel Too program; we want them to feel just as welcome as you, & in doing so we are now providing a variety of items in order to do just that! As for the bathtub preference, I suggest that while booking your next stay with us, you simply place a request on file for a tub. That way, as soon as the front desk spots it we will be sure to meet your needs. Lastly, yes, it's true that we in fact have a second address that should be placed into the GPS while travelling. Once again, that is:

598 W Sellers Ave
Ridley Park, PA 19078

We anxiously await your return; should you have any other questions, comments, or concerns please let me know!

Booked here for a night before an early morning flight. Bed comfortable, AC worked well, easy parking and relatively easy (except for a glitch on the way back in which the shuttle driver seemed unfamiliar with the airport) transport to airport and back. At this hotel (and at the one at our destination) we were given a room without a bathtub. I am mystified as to why, in the 21st century, we are apparently devolving as a species when it comes to soap and water hygiene and comfort. Do hotel architects and designers think it's cool and trendy not to put tubs in rooms? Are they themselves folks who do not take baths, preferring showers instead, and think everyone else on the planet is the same as they are? Is it one more cost cutting measure on the part of hoteliers? Has it occurred to any of these folks that perhaps there are people who enjoy - after a long flight cooped up in an uncomfortable airplane seat, or after a grueling business trip, or before a vacation, maybe, just maybe, someone would like to have a soak in a tub? Note to self: before checking into any hotel - or before ever booking a room - inquire as to whether baths are offered and if there is any question (like some rooms have them and some don't) book elsewhere. Amazing that even in the old West, baths were offered as part of the room and board at those rustic hotels. Heard of the Roman baths? etc. So why is it that you can't have a bath at a hotel in this day and age, without specifying that you want a room with a bathtub. Although this was a nice, new, clean and otherwise nicely designed property with friendly, helpful employees, I probably won't be booking here again because of the tub situation. Same reason I won't go back to Aloft.

Room Tip: We stayed on the first floor and despite proximity to I95, was very quiet. If you want a tub, thoug...

zuzu4343,

We greatly appreciate your feedback; the information that you provided is being taken into great consideration. Especially due to the fact that (as you noted) a lot of frequent travelers may prefer to soak in a tub, more so even after a long trip. I apologize if you were misled to believe that we couldn't offer you a room with a bathtub, because we do in fact have them. I am in high hopes that this does not deter you from revisiting our property, we would greatly appreciate another opportunity to provide you with a memorable stay. If you have any other questions or comments please feel free to contact me via the information below.

This hotel really makes you very much at home. From The GM and FO Mary and the ever happy Susan " the breakfast lady" their smiles and welcoming attitude makes their guest feel like their back home.

The breakfast was well stocked and always hot and fresh. Scrambled eggs, turkey sausage juices coffee and bagels plus pastries....not bad for a "continental" breakfast.

The rooms are very brand new smelling and very clean.

2nd stay here and they didn't disappoint. Really comfortable bed with lots of pillows. Super clean room and hotel. Nice size hotel room with a great bathroom and big tub. Tv was top of the line flat screen. Mini fridge came in handy.
Pool was warm, we had it to ourselves. We booked the park and fly package so parking was ample and saved us a fortune from our normal off airport site. Shuttle to the airport was convenient.
Continental breakfast had great selection and you'll leave stuffed.
I love this hotel and will stay here again and again.
