I was stranded in Philadelphia for one night with bad weather and booked this hotel on Hotwire. The hotel was undergoing renovations (which was not well signed for the initial arrival); but this was not an inconvenience after I checked in. I had a new room which was a 'wow'. It was big and had nice decorations. The bed was also very comfortable. I would love to go back to this hotel to spend more time. I assume the renovations on the lobby level are now complete and the whole hotel shines. This hotel was also well located as I walked to shopping and a steakhouse for dinner. The reception staff I encountered were also very professional.

We stayed here in mid Oct 2013 (boyfriend and myself). We got a great deal via express deals on Priceline (I was able to figure out which hotel if would be). There was construction at the time and the entrance to the hotel was on a side street (I knew to expect this from reviews and it didn't bother us). Valet parking was great - all the guys were nice and quickly retrieved our car when needed. Lobby was minimal (due to construction) but staff were nice. We got breakfast one day in the hotel coffee shop which was nice and had great coffee. Rooms....ours was right in front of the elevators...mostly ok but 2 of 4 mornings people were up at 5:30 am onwards using the elevators so the "ping" is heard each time (ask for a room away from elevators if your a light sleeper like me). TV in room was fine albeit a bit small. Bed, king size, was super comfy with soft bedding and fluffy duvet. Room itself was a decent size. Used in room safe which was convenient, bathroom was nice as renovated but the sink was odd (very large square shape) so there was very little counter space for anything like makeup. Mini fridge in room was nice as well as small in room coffee maker. Noise from the street in the morning, if a light sleeper, can be heard even on the 13th floor ..... However the hotel is right downtown so it was expected. Location is the biggest plus...close to main shopping and restaurant row as well as parks. In fact Philly is a easy city to walk around and we had a great time. We were in town to see some hockey.

Room Tip: Light sleepers get higher floor and away from elevators

I stayed at this hotel for four nights and really enjoyed being back after their impressive renovation. The hotel is now a Blu hotel and the rooms and corridors were very nicely done. The lobby is pretty cool also, mixing the old architecture with some modern lighting and interesting walls. I had room service each night and was not disappointed at all. One night I had the NY strip and it was perfectly prepared and very tasty. Ray in room service provides exceptional service and is very attentive to guest needs. The front desk staff is very good and all of the housekeeping staff are warm and welcoming.

I will be back to this hotel again.

I stayed here with a friend to attend a wedding in downtown Philly. It felt, surprisingly, quiet and relaxing even though it was at the heart of downtown. The staff was always very helpful and pleasant. The room (King) we had was well-appointed. Spent 2 nights there and on both occasions I felt well-rested. It has a restaurant and a bar on the ground floor, both of which I would recommend.

We loved the Warwick. It was totally chic. The front desk clerk was very kind and comped our breakfast unprompted when our family incurred a brief delay during room assignment. We ended up with a room at the end of the hall with windows on two sides. My wife commented that we should have stayed here for our entire Philadelphia stay.

Pros - Good location. Modern spacious rooms. free wifi
Cons -. We could hear the lifts in the morning so ask for a room away from these. The shower took ages to heat up meaning about 5 minutes waiting to get hot water. Otherwise very good.

Ps - there is a nice steak hose in this hotel. We didn't have time to try it but it seemed busy.
