We recently spent one night at this hotel. The hotel occupies older townhouses in the old city of Philly. It is convenient to several great restauarants and bars(although the restaurant in the hotel came to us highly recommended as well, we did not eat there for dinner). Even though the hotel basically fronts 1-95, we heard absolutely no road noise in our room, although we did have an interior room. The decor was a bit dated in both the main lobby and the room but it was clean and comfortable. Front desk staff pleasant and friendly.
In a previous review I read some complaints about the parking lot next door but we had no issues. Car was parked and the attendant was polite (hotel rate $23).
Breakfast in the restaurant was complimentary and extensive(fresh fruit, cereal, eggs, waffles, toast, yogurt)definitely a nice bonus. Didn't try the bar although other reviews say it is good and it certainly appeared busy when we were there.
