Stayed here while traveling for a conference for three nights in early August. Usually city hotels mean views of the wall next door or cramped rooms that it's hard to stay in with two people. The Doubletree Center City was a complete surprise. The location couldn't be beat, located in the heart of the city center surrounded by bars and restaurants, right next to a subway stop, and within walking distance of many of the historic sites. I felt very safe walking around the area at night by myself.
Staff was friendly at check in, and helpful when looking for restaurant recommendations. When a room key was deactivated, they properly checked for ID and issued a replacement with a smile.
The pool was rather small and varied in temperature day to day, but was enough of a respite from the heat wave during my stay. It was easily accessible from elevators, and didn't require walking through the lobby while dripping wet, a pet peeve of mine in other hotels.
Rooms were quite large, especially considering the location. Our double bed room had impressive city views and comfortable beds. The bathroom was new and very clean. High end toiletries were appreciated, as was the coffee machine and check-in cookie.
The breakfast buffet was huge, and changed slightly each day we were there. Coffee and Juice were served promptly by a courteous wait staff. Food was quite good, especially the muffins, and bacon was crispy not limp, a rarity on a buffet.
I strongly recommend the Doubletree to anyone traveling to Philadelphia. It was a very pleasant stay.
