This is a pretty good Courtyard - clean, modern, staff was friendly and helpful. The location worked for me as I was in Philly to see a Phillies game and the hotel is within walking distance of all of Philadelphia's sports venues (more on that below). But if you wanted to be in the heart of Philly, near Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell and restaurants and night life this hotel might not be the best choice as its in a corporate park near the stadiums and arenas but certainly is not in the "hub".
There is no free breakfast but they offer breakfast, I didn't care for the menu's selections or prices and went to a diner pretty close by - worked out well.
Now with regard to the walking to sports venues - its about a 20 minute walk and its an OK walk but at certain points there are no sidewalks and there are a lot of cars. If you're OK with walking and can maneuver less than pedestrian friendly terrain, then give it a go...if walking's not your strong suit.....take the car for a short drive.
Its a fine hotel, just make sure you're OK with the location. Thanks!
