“Nice Room and Courtesy”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

This hotel is well located for arts tourism within walking distance. The rooms are ample and have real kitchens. The beds are comfortable. The front desk staff and bellman were very pleasant, eager to please and courteous. The front desk staff need training in accurate information about museum hours and distances. The exercise room is satisfactory for my needs.

Just a one night stay here. Good value for the Expedia price of $120. Huge rooms and comfy beds. Corridors don't look very promising, with awful decor, but the room was a lot plainer and nicer. Very good powerful shower, iron in room, and pretty friendly and helpful staff. Its not anything particularly special but its large, spacious and good value. Be aware that rooms at the rear are overlooked by nearby office blocks. Location is great for city centre and museums, less so for the 'hipper' parts of town.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front are less overlooked.

I was in Philadelphia for a weekend with friends. We wanted a place with a good location and clean. I found the Windsor Suites to be perfect. The rooms were very nice, large and comfortable, and we were within walking distance of every where we wanted to go.

We usually stay at one of the Marriotts in Center City and are very glad we tried The Windsor Suites this time. This hotel is in a great location. You can walk to the museums, the Reading Terminal, bars and restaurants. Front desk staff is friendly and accommodating. Our room was a King studio suite and it was the largest studio suite we've ever stayed in. We asked for a higher floor due to other reviews speaking of traffic noise. I would say that is the lowest floor to be on to avoid the noise. Our room was one of the more recently renovated rooms so it was completely updated. Parking is $18 less per day than the Marriott properties and the room was less expensive too. We'll definitely stay here again.

The hotel was very nice, the room was huge and had a kitchen but no dining area. And to park at the hotel was 34.50 a night, way to expensive. But over all it was a good experience, would recommend it

Room Tip: Higher floors have the best view

Just returned from a long weekend in Philadelphia, Pa where we stayed at the Windsor Suites. Perfect location, huge room, nice accommodations and a full kitchen. The hotel is in the heart of the city, near museums, restaurants, Reading Terminal, the convention center and shopping. It Would be great for families, college bound students or couples, like us, who just want to visit and tour Philly. Highly recommend this hotel!

The staff was very friendly and helpful. It is in a great location, but it is a true "suite" hotel. There was a well-equipped kitchen that we really didn't need for our short stay. We thought the price was a touch high for a hotel that had no real hang-out area in its lobby and few, in any amenities.
