I stayed here for one night with a few friends to get away. Location is great: in Center City across from City Hall and a short walk/subway/cab ride to most things worth doing. PPA overnight parking conveniently near by. The building itself is a beautiful Beaux Arts - Art Deco transitional tower. Registration lobby was small and not particularly welcoming- though rich and well-kept, but a nice open lounge space is available one floor up. The included breakfast there the next morning was pretty good.
The room itself was large with a great layout, especially if you have guests drop by. The kitchen area looked nice, though we didn't use it. The view, even on the backside of the building, was pleasant. Though the room was clean and well-equipped, it was getting a bit tired, with dated colors and carpet lifting in a few places.
I had very minimal interaction with staff, but check-in was efficient.
As far as value goes, it seemed fair for the area and the space we got. As an extended stay place though (which is what it is intended as), the bill would stack up pretty quickly. However, if location is very important, it's probably your best option when you need space to spread out.
