Reviewed April 25, 2014

I stayed at this hotel last weekend (Easter weekend) The hotel in and of itself was very nice. Located downtown and not far from the convention center. Warm cookies upon arrival are always appreciated. We had called about a week prior and changed our initial reservation to a later arrival date, and had received a confirmation number. However, upon arrival, they didn't have a room or reservation for us at all, despite the confirmation number we had. The lady at the counter found us a room, out, but when i returned home, I found that i had been charged for both the new room they gave us and the previous reservation which they claimed they couldn't find. I have been calling for a week and leaving messages and trying to get a hold of someone in accounting to no avail, so that has definitely tarnished my view of the hotel. I'll have to keep you all updated as to if/when there is a resolution.

the only complaint I have with our stay at the double tree in Philly is the noise from the elevators were hear in our room ALL night long. Getting a good night sleep was not really possible with the elevators running up and down all night.

Over-billed at check-in, accosted by aggressive panhandlers in the lobby repeatedly on multiple days, outrageous noise in neighboring rooms and the hallway, ineffective security, filthy rooms, hotel manager lost his temper and yelled at family members for no legitimate reason - and on and on. Despite complaining to corporate and the hotel, no apology, no remediation. Just treated like we were wrong no matter the issue we raised.

Great location within walking distance to historical sites, Reading Market, and many enjoyable neighborhoods and parks. Clean and modern hotel. The staff were friendly and professional. Our room was quiet and the beds were comfortable. No complaints... We would not hesitate to stay here again!

We were most impressed by the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, at the check-in desk, the bar, the restaurant. The only minor complaint is that the restaurant list given .for local eateries was out of date

The staff was very helpful. Parking is located right next to the hotel ($25 a day per car) so at least it has that convenience in the city. Located in center city I would say, so walking distance to most everything! We went for a concert that was a five minute walk away at Prince Music Theatre.

Thank you for the great review of your recent stay. We are located right in the heart of the Arts District and down the street from the theater. With a subway stop outside the hotel who needs a car? But you're right, we do offer very competitively priced parking for downtown as well.

Had a great stay! The rooms were comfortable, the staff were friendly and accommodating. They gave us great advice in how to navigate the city. The hotel is in a great location, close to places of interest as well as the subway and places to eat! The pool was a nice size as well as the fitness room.
