Except for the price I have no negative comments to offer for this hotel. Check in went smooth. Everyone was friendly. Room was fantastic. Breakfast was decent. Did not partake in the evening "dinner" except to have one beer. There were a few restaurants within walking distance as well as a grocery store and bookstore. Basic college area. Ran into a few beggars but never felt threatened. It seems like they are really into making this a safe area. Cops (campus and city) everywhere. Would highly recommend this as an option to paying even more in the downtown area. Very short drive to the historic areas and even down to Pats Cheesesteak. As to the price....About $500 for two nights! Now that does include $40 a night for parking. There is an option to park on the street for free up to 8am. But only after 10pm I believe, and starting at 8am you have to feed the meter. Thought about using public transpo but driving around downtown was not a hassle. Definitely visit the Reading Street Market! We also did the Art Museum and had a good time. Parking is hard to come by in what is called the restaurant area. We found parking at meters the best way to go. The garages are outrageous in their charges. There is one garage in the society hill area where if you are in by 10 and out by 7, I believe, parking is only $5. Can't remember exactly where it was though.
