Everything about my four nights at this hotel was a pleasure. An easy and personable check-in at 2 pm. A generously sized room overlooking the fountain in Logan Circle. A reasonable package rate inclusive of breakfast (reasonable by comparison to hotels such as the Sheraton, Omni, etc. for which rates seemed out of whack during the time I was there -- the rate at FS was much better than the rate at the Ritz ). So here are the details: the room had two double beds, desk, dresser, good sized closet (with mini-fridge for keeping dinner leftovers). Missing from the room was a comfortable chair (other than the desk chair), for which there was ample room. Super clean. No chipped or worn furniture or furnishings. The sheets were the usual high quality one finds at a FS. The bathroom was well appointed with plenty of towels, very nice robes and L'Occitane toiletries, which were plentifully replaced. Good strong Speakman shower. Room temperature controls worked nicely (windows could be opened too). Housekeeping twice a day (at evening, the ice bucket was filled). No extra charge for basic and adequate wi-fi (you can upgrade for a charge). Breakfast off the menu was terrific, and the hostess remembered my name and preferred table each morning after the first. While the Fountain Restaurant was closed for dinner while we were there, the Swan Lounge was a very nice place for a relaxed light dinner, and while menu prices are the ususal sky high, portions were good and shareable. The pool and fitness room were nice, with good amenities in the locker room. Sauna, steam, geat shower, etc. Food can be ordered at the pool, and the cheese tray and drinks we ordered came down in short order. While the hotel is formally decorated, it is so in a contemporary way, so there is no feeling of stuffiness. One is not uncomfortable in shorts and a collared pullover in the public spaces, except perhaps on Saturday night when there were folks milling about in formalware for a function. This contrasted nicely with the FS in NY, which had rather cold and formal feeling public spaces, beautiful though it was. The FS Philadelphia is well located just a few blocks from City Hall, and a few more blocks after that to Independence Mall, Broad Street, and the rest of Center City. The hotel is just a long block from the Barnes (highly recommended), a beautiful public library and the Philadelphia Art Museum. If you deign to ride the double decker tour bus (which I recommend if you are visiting for the first time), you will be pleased that there is a stop right around the corner from the hotel entrance. My weekend at the FS was exactly what I had hoped for . . . nothing dissapointed.
