I won this hotel for one night on Priceline, which allowed me to stay in this fabulous property for a fraction of the posted rates. I was a little wary based on some of the previous posters' reviews, but my doubts were unfounded. I was here with my parents, and they loved the place. Among the pros of the property:
1) Great location.
2) Old historic building was very cool and had a number of shops within the adjoining building, including a Starbucks.
3) The restaurant in the same building (The Palm) had a great Happy Hour/Late Night menu. $1 raw oysters, and many small sample plates such as filet mignon sandwiches and crab cakes for $3.50 that were almost a meal on their own. Two plates would definitely satisy one easily since there were three of each item on a plate.
4) Free business center with two computers on the top floor which was never busy and worked flawlessly.
5) The staff went out of their way to assist with whatever was needed.
6) Rooms were very nicely decorated.
As far as negatives, no major ones to mention. The water pressure could have been a little better in the shower, and the parking charge of $27 was a tad on the high side, but not a total rip-off. It was worth paying a little extra to be right next to the hotel, and not have to deal with all of the piled up snow in Philadelphia from the recent storm.
When you bid Priceline for Center City Philadelphia, you sometimes get the hotels closer to Society Hill, and sometimes get the ones closer to the Convention Center. To me though, the Hyatt at the Bellevue is the most desirable one in terms of location. All in all, Philadelphia is a great city to spend time in, and my favorite of all the major northeastern cities. Enjoy your time here!
