Stayed here recently for a quick family trip to Philadelphia. Upon arriving the valet was very nice, but his space to work with very limited. Had to go around a few blocks which cost me another 10 minutes. Check in was efficient and friendly. We were pleasantly surprised with the size and quality of our room on the 21st floor. So far so good. Until we heard the elevator. First of all the elevator could come right our of the tower of terror and being in it you kind of expect it to turn into a theme park ride and free fall any minute. But that was the least of our worries. Our room was right next to said elevator, and we could hear the elevator running all night long. I'm not talking about a little ding every now and then when it got to our floor, but a big, loud, swooshing sound every time the elevator moved (I think the 21 floor is pretty close to the roof). Our room ended in 01, so when you're on a higher floor and they give you a room that ends with 01, politely decline and state that you actually want to have some sleep and see if they give you another room. Also, sitting in the lobby, you might get the feeling you're actually staying in a kennel, the number of guests with dogs is astonishing.
