I want to begin this review with the most negative thing that happened--and I still liked this hotel. On the third night of my 4 night stay, water began pouring down from my bathroom ceiling at 5:30 a.m. Someone from the desk came immediately, mopped up the mess with towels. The hotel was fully booked that day, but they were able to move me to a much nicer room that evening. I do have to say that if this had happened the first night and they couldn't move me, I'd have looked for another hotel. But as things worked out, this wasn't too inconvenient. Very convenient to the Convention Center and Reading Terminal Market as well as other local attractions and restaurants. Very pleasant sitting/breakfast room (I brought a dinner back one evening from the Market and enjoyed it there). I had the single room, which was only slightly larger than a basic cruise ship cabin, but I was busy at my conference and hardly in the room except to sleep, so... The King I had on the last evening was much larger, better TV, less street noise (higher floor). Juice, coffee, fruit, and generic breakfast carbs for the included breakfast--not gourmet, but hey--unlimited free hot hot hot coffee. I'll probably go back when my conference returns to Philly in a few years, but I'll be careful not to book the room with the leak.
