“Nice for what it is”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

I had to stay in this hotel with my bf while he was interviewing for a job. The lobby is upstairs and parking is difficult and expensive however the hotel is quite clean and the staff is friendly. The rooms are small , however the hotel is basically for people travelling on business rather than pleasure. There are snacks present almost all day and it was generally an overall good experience.

Everything is accessible from this prime location. Restaurants, bars, shops, tourist attractions and everything Philly. If you drive a car in Philly it's expensive so take alternative transportation to this one location and walk to your heart's content. This hotel is quiet, has a great restaurant and boasts excellent service. The rooms are like the ultimate dorm room...everything in it's place, contemporary and comfortable. The free Wifi will direct you to a hundred things within blocks! If you want to experience Philly...this is it!

Room Tip: Get high and the street noise will go totally away!

The only thing good about this hotel is the location. My friend and I stayed here during a weekend in July to have easy access to most of downtown Philadelphia. The hotel lobby is on the second floor and on a busy street. Not good access to unload/reload your car. Parking is around the corner in a very expensive garage, even after the hotel validation. The room was not what I expected at all. Its not your typical hotel room, its more of an European efficiency. Its an extremely small space with a small bathroom and mini tv hung on the wall. The hotel seems to be geared toward business folks rather than tourists. There are only two old elevators, one which broke during our stay and the wait times for the other one was insanely long. Check in/out process was easy once you got to the lobby. Bed was comfortable. Davio's is right downstairs - great restaurant. However, those few good things definitely did not out weight the negatives. Wouldn't stay here again.

Stayed two nights on a last minute trip to Philly. Location was great, but that's the only thing I really liked. Make sure you park in the "right" garage to get a discount. If you arrive during the week by car, park and then walk with your luggage, there is no where to stop and check in. Overpriced for what it is, despite location. TV in room was not in the bedroom, not sure who thought that would be a good idea. Clean if you need a place to crash for the night but not impressed.

We made reservations just a few weeks before we checked in, drove there and reserved parking - parking is not free.

One major problem, seemed to be common, plastic card/keys did not work, in elevator, or for room entry, and we had to be rekeyed five times , that's five times in 15 minutes, then twice after dinner. this was frustrating at first, then was a joke, and then finally corrected.

The lobby is on the second floor, there is no entrance from the street and parking to unload luggage is a real pain. After unloading, if there are two of you, and there are NO bell hops at all, one must drive around the corner to park in a underground garage, and then walk back to the hotel, or park, then drag your bags back to the hotel. Get the parking receipt validated for hotels discount at once, then check in. The reverse is the same, only, you drag your own luggage to the garage.

The lobby is nothing to brag about, décor wise, there is a snack bar, complimentary for guests, we never went to it, and beyond it are the two cramped elevators. The lobby has a huge skylight, which was nice, and some comfy chairs.

Our room was sort of dark, even with lights on. TV some stations came in clearly, others fuzzy- TV small, not LCD or plasma, stuck high on the wall. No real desk, only one night table, no fridge and NO SAFE, no real closet. Bath small but very nice, like a cruise ships bathroom. Bath amenities are Gilchrist and Soames, a chic label, nice quality. USA made!

In the hall next to one of the two elevators are free never used plastic bottles to fill with iced filtered water, nice. There is a linen closet to get more pillows and blankets from, complimentary. Ice and ice buckets on 12th floor only. Here when you want room cleaning, you call the desk. No waiting for clean towels or dirty trays in the hall. nice room service food menus.

All told, for a low rate, room and hotel ok.

The star here, DAVIOS, the excellent restaurant, a branch from the famed one in Boston, we had full breakfast here once, continental twice (only continental on weekends), and I must say, that for a continental breakfast, at $10.00 each, it was way better than most offered in higher end hotels for a much higher price. The full breakfast was excellent, truly first rate in every respect.

We had dinner at DAVIOS twice it was so wonderful, and the cocktails were exceptional, exceptional and fairly reasonable wine list as well.

A little comparo- we had one dinner at hotel Soffitel, in their "fine" restaurant, and it was way over priced, the drinks were lousy, the food not very good and the service stunk. And the lobby and bar and restaurant there was filled with fruit flies. Not nice at all.

We will stay at Club Quarters again, it is really a good deal, and DAVIOS is the greatest.

Room Tip: If you do not stay at this hotel dine at DAVIOS, it was open for lunch as well as dinner.

I decided to visit Philadelphia and I stayed at the Club Quarters hotel on Chestnut Street. It is perfectly located, a street away fom the main street, not very far from the subway. I stayed in one of their smallest and cheapest room but it was clear, quiet and very comfortable. I really enjoyed it. The staff was very helpful. It is within walking distance of the main attractions and the area is very nice.

Well, I found the rooms chrostophobic, Rooms are way too small. Clearly they had divided the original rooms in to small box rooms. Most windows do not open and were locked shut. Short of fresh air. The windows which did only open 4 inches. Air conditioning system kicks in and out with a big noise. There are roof top fans outside building were noisy too. The whole thing was far too noisy for me. However, great location in the city . Staff were friendly. They moved me a few times to find a better room. Staff worked hard to please.
