My 2 boys (8&5) and myself stayed in a King Room with sofa Bed. The room was pretty small, and once the sofa bed was opened up, there really wasn't much room. If Mama was with us, it would have been really tight. Since it was a boys only trip, we made due. Primary purpose of trip was to see Islanders beat the Flyers at Wells Fargo Center.
Property is very close to airport and there is a Wawa gas station/convenience store a short drive away. The gas station charged a reasonable rate for fuel for those needing to return a rental card, unlike the crooks near MCO. There is also a Ruby Tuesday's within walking distance, but thats it as far as close (walking) dining oprtions. The property was also a very short, 10 minute drive to the Philly Sports Complex. All their stadiums are right near each other.
My boys love swimming and playing in hotel pools and this was was disappointing. Very small and the whirlpool is now closed by some new PA law. (I didn't ask the reason, since these things are gross to me anyway). We didn't try the Bistro, we were looking to curb expenses and were able to find a Diner offering twice the food at half the price.
The staff was TOP NOTCH. Very friendly, very helpful and right there if you ever needed them. Overall, I'd probably stay here again, but not for much more than $100/night (we used Free Rewards credit). Location to stadiums was awesome, but you would definitely need car to get into Philly. We didn't explore public transportation options.
Feel free to ask any specific questions and I'll see if I can help. Golfnut1266@aol.com
