Spent an awesome 5 nights at this property to see the sights of Philadelphia. The room was clean and spacious. The bathroom had plenty of counter space. Housekeeping was excellent. Our corner room had plenty of light and and nice view overlooking Independence Park.
We couldn't really hear any street noise from the 9th floor. And the noise from the neighboring rooms was minimal. The elevators were quick. No problems with the A/C unit. Large LCD TV. The bed was comfortable. The staff were all friendly. I would definetely recommend this hotel for anyone wanting to see the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall.
Plenty of place to eat on Chestnut. We were able to walk to two Philly cheesteak places, Campo's and Jim's. (Campo's being the closer of the two) For fancy places there was Buddakhan and Morimoto. For casual food, there was Cosi's right across the street or at the Bourse. We also ate at Jones, Spasso's Italian, and Han Dynasty.
Plenty of transportation nearby. We used the Philly Phlash and buses. We didn't have any issues with homeless in the area. We felt safe the whole time we were in Philadelphia.
The only issues I had with the hotel was that the pool was tiny and our in-room safe ran out of battery twice. But this was no big deal. Taxi to and from airport was around $30.
