This hotel is located in the heart of the theater district and is right at a subway station so also convenient to sports locations and the rest of the city. Was a little worried about taking the subway, but it was very clean and safe - also a real bargain if you buy tokens for the round trip.

Our connecting flight was late, so we were stranded overnight in Philadelphia. I am so glad that we stayed here, rather than one of the airport hotels. The Doubletree is perfectly placed for exploring Philadelphia. The city centre is beautiful, with historic buildings and striking modern architecture sitting comfortably together. We had a warm welcome at Reception (and warm chocolate... More

For the most part it was an OK experience. Adequate but nothing special. House keeping was inconsistent. We kept getting plenty of soap bars but had to call for toilet paper. The hotel was clean. It is well placed for walking to many of the sights, but so are other hotels. The staff was friendly but it seemed hollow. We... More

Great choice and value!!! Overall great but....Our room had a slight odor and the morning staff at the restaurant was slooooow and the manager (host) there was a joke. Other than those two things our stay was great. Would stay again.

This hotel was full of school children, the Wi-Fi did not work in the rooms, staff were not helpful, and the check-in staff were not courteous. The location of the hotel was good, and the concierge was good, but I was there on business and was unable to get work done since the Wi-FI was not functioning.

I was here for only one night but I wished I was here longer. The room was nice, lobby crowded but was not bothering. Staff helpful and efficient . Surrounded by some of my favorite restaurants like Cheesecake Factory, McCormick and Schmick's . Walnut street a block away with its charm.

It is my first trip to this city and it is definitely a good choice. The city hall is only three minutes walk and the liberty bell is within walking distance too. The area is very safe.

The Center City DoubleTree is my hotel of choice when visiting Philadelphia. The hotel was clean and the staff demonstrated the willingness to serve their guest and make you feel welcomed. I felt as if they genuinely wanted to ensure my stay would be enjoyable and I felt at home!! Thanks DoubleTree!!
