The homewood suites has attractive, reasonably priced rooms. Breakfast is great and is included. The hotel is attached to the much larger Hilton allowing guests to take advantage of the Hilton's services (fitness room, pool, restaurant/bar, etc.). It's like all the benefits of a Hilton but at Homewood prices.
My major gripe is about the parking. Although the hotel is across the street from Montgomery County, one of the Philly area's poshest suburbst, it is technically in West Philadelphia one of Philly's worst neighborhoods. Since it is on the periphery of West Philly, it is perfectly safe. Unfortunately, the parking lot is nearly a block away from the hotel's entrance. Making matters worse, the parking lot is desolate and weed-strewn making it a scary place to walk at night. I believe that it is the old parking lot and heliport of a now-defunct hospital that used to be across the street. The hotel should repave the parking lot, put in security cameras, and place better lighting.
