Stayed here on labor day weekend, we were able to check in early and get a late checkout which was really convenient. It's proximity to Independence Hall/Park and all of Center City /Old city was perfect. We flew in, the airport taxi was 28.50 each way and everything else was in walking distance. We did take the Phlash trolley out to zoo and Art museum which was just a 2 block walk to catch the shuttle which was $10.00 all day for a family of 4. The hotel room was nice and spacious. The pool is in the spa which made it feel more tranquil and relaxing. The hot tub was spa like, very soothing after a day of walking tours. Everything about the hotel was nice, clean and comfortable. We had a room facing the street, you could see Independence hall from our room. We did not have any street noise problems or any noise problems at all. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Philadelphia.
