We stayed here while accompanying my husband on a business trip. Location-wise, the hotel is just a short walk from the convention center and the yummy restaurants at Reading Terminal Market. Also a 10-minute walk to the Phlash Trolley, which takes you all over town. The only downside to the location is its proximity to a homeless men's shelter about 1/2 block away. We never felt unsafe, but there were always a number of men hanging around outside the building. Also there's construction going on in the area. Our room on the 6th floor was fairly quiet, but occasionally we were awakened by typical city street noise in the early morning hours.
The service at the hotel was particularly good. Whenever we called down to the front desk about a matter, they promptly addressed it. The rooms were clean & comfortable. Breakfast was OK... more variety than some hotels but not top-notch cuisine by any means. We'd stay there again if we were on business at the convention center. There's a monitored parking lot for $20/day just up the block from the hotel.More
