The previous good reviews are correct - the hotel is in a great location, we walked everywhere from Liberty Hall to the Eastern State Penitentiary - the whole area felt really safe. The swimming pool is not huge but adequate to cool down, there could be a shortage of pool towels though. The studio room was a good size with queen bed, walk in closet with safe, full bathroom with toiletries, seperate hairdryer and kitchen. The Irish Bar on the ground floor is convenient for drinks and breakfast (although we would recommend 'Little Petes' 219 S 17th St - the food was good and cheap, great coffee too) - we did see someone famous in the bar, everyone (but us) seemed to recognise him.
There is free internet and printing on the ground floor so you can check-in on line for your
flights. The staff were all friendly and helpful and the rooms clean - and our room was quiet. The fitness centre is basic but adequate.
Having found a great route from Manchester, UK into the States we will definately be back at the Windsor Suites - Boston, New York and Washington are all close via the train.
