We just returned from a trip to Philadelphia to visit Citzen's Bank Park (for a baseball game). Sadly, I went to see the Phillies with my family (I'm a Yankees fan and a New Yorker....the kids all like the Phillies for some reason). During my hotel search, I found this new property by Hilton (it just opened on August 11th). I was immediately interested. It's brand spanking new. We were the first guests to use our assigned room and here's my feedback:
1. Beautiful hotel in the middle of the business district (right near the convention center).
2. Friendly, helpful staff....especially the 2 young ladies that "run" the included breakfast.
Thank you ladies (one of them was named Jessica).
3. We got lost in the city (in the dark) while looking for the hotel. We called and they tried their
best to help us find them. The manager even waited next to the parking garage to direct us.
Impressive! (One item to note...it's self parking...the hotel doesn't have a parking lot, so
you'll have to pay to park (it can run up to $35 per day, assuming you stay parked the
whole time....the parking is directly next door)
4. The room was beautiful. It was an efficiency (full kitchen), had two queens and a sofa bed.
Not too bad for five of us.
5. There's a small indoor pool that helped entertain the kids before the game.
6. Even the kind gentlemen that cleaned the public areas was wonderful.
The neighborhood itself is a little shady. Fancy restaurants and dark alleys next to one another. Maybe not a good idea to venture out alone in the dark. The hotel itself is safe and secure and is clearly a hidden gem in this interesting city.
