I paid a very reasonable price for a Sunday night here, very happy as it is walking distance to the historic centre and enough good restaurants close by if you want to eat out. The fitness centre being open 24 hrs is also a great benefit, especially if you've come from the east and wake early. The room I had... More

I was on the 15th floor, and the room I was given was pretty nice, even though I asked for two beds, they said they did not have any for that day and they gave me king size. Rooms are connected to each other through a door, and you can easily hear what the other are talking about or yelling... More

Dear Alberto G, Thank you for the review. We're sorry that other guests on your floor were being inconsiderate and noisy. As a traveler myself, I know how frustrating it can be when other guests have no regard for those around them.

Stayed here in July and the room was just fair with windows in need of replace and a good cleaning necessary. It is convenient to just about everything downtown and the staff extremely nice. The Septa underground was right there as well. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance.

Very clean, comfortable and pleasant room with a great view. This Hotel is a great location and the staff is friendly and professional. Check in was fast and easy. The pool is too small and you have to pay extra for wifi in your room, but it's free in the large and comfortable lobby.
