We stayed here recently in August with our three children (ages 12, 9 and 5) and with my daughters best friend-another 8 year old. We all were very comfortable! We did not feel cramped at all. We had a bed up in the loft for me and my husband with our own bathroom (though we did have only one shower)We had a pull out sofa bed for 2 kids and a Murphy bed for 2 more! The room and loft space were clean and nicely decorated. The staff didn't blink an eye when they saw all of us piling out of the elevator :-) and were helpful in giving us ideas about where to sight see. The kids loved the hot chocolate that was always available and we liked the breakfast that was delivered to the room. Not the most amazing food but it did the job and was super convenient. We parked about a block away and the location was good. Nice street within quick driving or walking distance to many attractions. Also the staff let us drop of our copious amounts of stuff: luggage and bags and food (oh my!) during the day before our room was ready which was really convenient. Additionally when I was calling around to various hotels in Philly to make inquiries I noted that this hotel was the most welcoming-even over the phone! Altogether I think a great place to stay with children!
