The physical plant is what you would expect from a mid-range hotel in a major city; no complaints, but nothing extraordinary, either. Rooms are clean and everything works and appears to have been renovated fairly recently. Rooms are oddly shaped, but this isn’t a negative. I was in a “corner queen”, which contained a sofa bed. The room was spacious and would suit a family well. Has a large fitness room, equipped with a good number of state-of-the art cardio machines, a few weight machines and free weights. Also has a small indoor pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and racquetball court (of all things). There is also a deck/patio, which is a bit odd since most people do not travel to Philadelphia to lie about in the sun.
I had only one meal (breakfast) at the restaurant, which was very good (nice, reasonably priced buffet). I did not use the business center. The gift shop is open from 7:00 am to 11:00 pm daily, which are very extensive hours.
Location is great; on Broad Street in the theater district only a block from the Kimmel Center and a few blocks from City Hall, the Ritz-Carlton and the Bellevue; several blocks from the Convention Center. An entrance to the Walnut-Locust subway station is a half-block away, which is especially convenient if one is attending an event at the sports/arena complex.
The staff were all friendly and efficient.
All-in-all, a fine stay and a very good value.
