This hotel is just the greatest. The manager, the staff in the breakfast/dinner area Marianna & Agnus was super. The desk staff, Toni, Jackie, Vanessa & the guy were just superb. They all remembered your name every day. They all went above & beyond to make you feell at home. I would return here anytime & would look forward to it. Top notch!

Room Tip: we had room 211...it was just fine.

What a nice place to stay,
Ask for Bob McDevitt the manager, he was super and his leadership extended down through the entire staff. Always very helpful and friendly.
The bedding, pillows, sheets were all very good!
Air conditioning unit very quiet.
General sound level during the night very good.
We had a Great night sleep all four nights.
Bathroom, shower andTowels all excellent.
Meals were excellent with more than enough variety, loved the fresh fruit at breakfast.
Parking was inexpensive, and located right on main bus route into city.
Recommend this place, would stay here next time.

Context is critical in our evaluation of various situations. Take a standard Homewood Suites by Hilton guest room; spacious, perhaps 1 or 2 rooms, luxurious bedding and a roll up couch bed, well appointed bathroom and a compact, but fully functional kitchenette. The difference in this one; our room 1009, in the Homewood Suites, 4200 City Avenue, Philadelphia, overlooked a reservoir, the Fairmount Park and in the distance, the sheen of downtown Philadelphia. Views in the setting sun, rising sun punctuated our esteem in this property. IN a high concept area of Philadelphia; nearby is a Saks Fifth Avenue, a # of Philadelphia TV stations, and not incidentally a Target. Homewood Suites is adjacent a sister Hilton Hotel. Indeed they share a pool and fitness center in a novel interconnected hallway.

Enjoyed this property and the standard Homewood features.

Room Tip: Odd numbers, higher floors have excellent Philadelphia views

This homewood was ok, the location was not convenient, still thought the price was high, but Vanessa who checked me in and the rest of the staff were great! I am heading back in three weeks and not sure if I want to stay that far out, but if I do, I would not mind staying here.

My first room had an unbearble trash smell. The second was what you would expect for business travel. The breakfast was fine. They did at least have some warm items and real plates to use. Being attached to the Hilton was helpful since I was without transport. Ate at the bar at Delmonico's and charged to my Homewood room.

Great service really made this spot.

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.

Stayed at this Hotel for one night. I was a little apprehensive after reading other reviews, but everything was great with our stay. Nice room with a view of downtown Philadelphia and two comfortable beds. The breakfast was excellent with great service from the two employees taking care of the dining area. One of the best free breakfasts that I have ever had.

Room Tip: ask for a room with a view of downtown
