I stayed at this hotel for an extended weekend with my husband and a friend to attend a local convention. I chose this hotel because it was the cheapest, and close to the convention center. The hotel itself was not bad, I have no complaints. However, I reserved a room with a king sized bed before I knew my friend was going to be rooming with my husband and I. I called the hotel a few days before our reservation to inquire about having a cot placed in our room for our friend to sleep in. The person at the desk told me I would have to wait until I got there to request a cot. I asked for a cot when I got there and was told they had none available and that I could try to call back the next morning because they assumed someone would return a cot (even though I had already asked about one days prior). Of course, I called the next morning and there were still none available. Luckily, another friend let us borrow an air mattress they had brought (their hotel HAD cots, they did not need their air mattress). Other than this issue, the stay was uneventful. The location was key- within walking distance to the convention center, Broad Street (avenue of the arts, shopping, ect.), major transportation, Chinatown, and the Reading Terminal Market. I never tried the food or went to the pool. Parking was an issue- my husband paid a lot of money to park his car in a private lot on Broad street because we drove separately and he needed to leave early. I opted to park my car in West Philly and take the subway to 13th street (know the area and felt that my car would be safe- at it was).
