I stayed here for three nights as part of a mini-vacation prior to a major conference in Philly. Generally, I have had very good luck with Hampton Inns across the US. This one was no exception!
My room, facing toward part of the Pennsylvania Convention Center, was in very good condition and the bed felt like it was practically brand new. The bathroom was spotless and everything worked well (except for the cable TV, but who cares?). The staff was genuinely helpful and the breakfasts were typical for a hotel of this price range. Internet is free, and the rooms have a coffee machine and cups, but there is no in-room safe. Small safe deposit boxes are available at the desk without charge.
As for the location, I think it's superb. It's exactly halfway between Logan Square and Franklin Square. It took me about 15 minutes to walk from the hotel to Independence Hall and about the same to Logan Square. As I said before, it's also right across the street from the Penn. Convention Center and about five minutes walk from Reading Market. The area appears to be about as safe as a major city can be, too.
This hotel is nothing fancy, but it is excellent value in my opinion.
