PROS: Check in was quick and efficient. Lobby is inviting and impressive. The King room was clean and well appointed and the bed super comfy. Staff was extremely helpful, courteous and friendly. Close to excellent restaurants and within walking distance of historical areas, parks, and shopping. Reading Terminal Market and tour busses and shuttles to casino are available within a half block of the hotel. Starbucks in lobby. Hotel security responded to minor issue quickly and courteously. CONS: Housekeeping was a litle disappointing and often not accomplished until late afternoon. Towels were clean and plentiful but had a stale, sour smell. On site restaurant breakfast buffet was pricey with lukewarm eggs and hash browns, although waffle was great; dinner was overly salty and greasy. Internet (both wired and wi fi) was ridiculously overpriced. Does not provide airport shuttle (but bell desk will refer you to Lady Liberty cabs). Neighborhood can be scary after dark. Overall it was a good stay, but go to the market for breakfast if you can wait until after 8am to eat, or go across the street to the Marriott Courtyard restaurant for an excellent breakfast buffet that's also cheaper. Didn't have a chance to try Maggiano's but heard it's good.
