This was a nice home base to cross when I was taking walks to/from different parts of Philly. Off-peak tourist season was the best experience--super clean bathrooms and sweet, passionate park rangers and people to help guilde you and welcome you to the city. Really special and well-run place.

Professional staff, quite a lot of booklets of what is going on around. We've stayed for 2 days and 1 night in Philadelphia over all, but if we would have stayed longer, there is no doubt it's quite a lot to visit and discover.

Maybe ok to check out once, but mostly a little cheesy around the edges and on the whole, not epically interesting.
