Stayed here 3 nights with my boyfriend during our stay in Philly. Very reasonable walk (10-15 mins) to the Wells Fargo Arena to watch the Flyers play. The baseball and football stadiums were also close. Also nice and convenient public transit bus stop on the corner to take us to downtown Philly.
The breakfast buffet was EXCELLENT. $10 all you can eat potatoes, sausages, bacon, eggs, etc, etc.
The room was nice and clean and had a fridge and microwave. The bar in the hotel had VERY cheap food and beer ($2 beers) which was awesome....although the service wasn't the best. We ate two dinners there and found service was bad each time. Seemed like the waitresses were more interested in flirting with the single guys in the bar than serving our table.
My boyfriend was very unhappy with his chicken wrap at the bar. There was SOOO much blue cheese on his that he didn't eat it. I love blue cheese but also found it was way overboard. He told the waitress and she was apologetic but offered nothing to fix the issue. Then when we were cashing out we saw a huge rat. We told the same waitress. She didn't seem to care at all. I know a lot of restaurants have infestation problems here and there but you'd think she'd at least pretend to care and get the manager involved.
The hotel as a whole was excellent...but the bar brought my rating down a notch.
