“Great location, but tired hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2012

As a tourist, this hotel's location was ideal. It is a short walk from Rittenhouse Square Park and some good restaurants and brunch spots (Marathon was great). It was probably a 10 - 15 minute walk to South Street, which I understand to be where the cool kids hang out on a Saturday night.

The hotel itself was fine. The lobby is reasonably large and offers free hot drinks and water. The room was of an average size though the view from the 4th floor was straight into Daffy's store. The room was quite narrow, so the TV was off to the side of the bed. The decor and bathroom looked quite dated and could do with a refurbishment.

We got the hotel through Priceline for $200 a night before tax. I probably would return to Club Quarters but would struggle at that price.

Front desk was helpful, with checking in and out made very easy.

Had reservations for their suite over Easter. Had family dinner planned at Davio's next door. Asked clearly in reservation, and phoned in advance for upper floor (renovated rooms) given the lowest floor. Noisy on Sunday am, outside bad street washing. Furniture in room worn. Yes you got free filtered water on easch floor (nice). And you got coffee in room and bed nice. But we had their best room,supposedly. Check in early and quick but checkout we did Not get a validated coupon for a free stay as advertised. We were told we had to be there during week (M-Th), we checked in Fri and left Mon. Many folks taking advantage of cheaper rates on weekends, some rooms with lots of people it seems. Nice lobby, but this is a business hotel and the attitude reflects British formal business, not a place for kids in our opinion.

Room Tip: get as high as possible for less noise and not close to the elevator.

I am currently staying at the hotel and although, I was initially taken aback by how incredibly small the room is, I figured it is only 2 nights then I wil be back home. However, I am staying for a conference and I am shocked to discover that there is no iron in the room. After calling guest services, I was pleased to discover the irons in a service closet on the floor. Overall, after getting over the no iron at 6:00 AM, I would recommend the hotel. The rooms are small and clean with working wifi and the hotel itself is nicely decorated and in an excellent location.

I often stay at Club Quarters Hotels.While actual properties vary, the concept remains standard, a clean room with a nice work space and Wifi.
The Philadelphia Club Quarters lacks a real business center, but does provide service computers and printers.
Davios restaurant on site VERY PRICEY
Lots of restaurants near by. Do not wander far at night.
Over all nice experience.

I don't usually write reviews, but I felt this place was worth talking about. I booked on Priceline and was a little bit apprehensive about what I might find, but I am pleasantly surprised! The finishings in the lobby, common areas, and rooms are all crisp and clean. The rooms are well-appointed with new fixtures and updates. The photos online definitely do not do Club Quarters justice---it is MUCH better looking in person. I'm really happy I ended up staying here--the price is very reasonable, the location is great, and I would definitely stay here again.

This was the perfect weekend getaway!!!! The hotel is in a great location and while the room was small it was just what we needed. You can't beat the price. This will be our go to hotel anytime we visit the city!!

We stayed at Club Quarters during a weekend in March of 2012. It was a good experience. The price was very reasonable and the rooms were fine. Because my companion wished to have cereal for breakfast in her room, I requested a refrigerator in one of the club size rooms we reserved. When we arrived neither room had a refrigerator. However, in the end each of us was given a room with a refrigerator. The front desk staff was very patient in arranging this. The hotel is centrally located but in a very nice and safe area (near Rittenhouse Square). I had very pleasant evening walks.
Since the restaurant in the hotel did not serve a hot breakfast on the weekend, I requested some recommendations for breakfast places. I was very satisfied with the restaurant that was suggested.
On our first night, we also ate at the restaurant located on the premises of the hotel. The food was truly excellent, even if it was a bit pricey. The staff was very courteous.
