I chose this hotel as it is reasonably priced compared to the much more expensive fancier hotels nearby and also within walking distance of the Academy of Music where I had tickets for an event. Very centrally located, small room with everything I needed, helpful staff, no street noise to prevent a good night's sleep and some nice little touches...

Room was very clean and it was a very cool place, I loved the stair wells and the small corridors made for a very different experience - freaky at first but I loved it. don't forget to ask the desk to adjust your air in your room, I would have rated this place as excellent but just missed it since...

"Great spot in the middle of Center City!" I stayed at the Rodeway for 3 days from Last Friday to Monday and every day was an absolute delight. The front desk always brought a smile to my face when I talked to them. This hotel is right in the middle of the city which means that everything I wanted to...

Good for a cheap city center location. But remember that the facilities are basic and room is small. My room had a separate private bathroom down the hall - very odd. It was okay for me as a single traveler for one night - but not for family / two people or if you are staying more than one night....

Being used to Manhattan, Center City is a great city to explore over a weekend. My go to place has always been the Rodeway Inn on walnut street. I think they have gone under a renovation and the design gives you a modern boutique experience. I know the hotel manager on a first name basis, Bobby definetely a hilarious guy....

Old hotel with some improvements, but satisfactory in every way. The floors squeak but the small rooms are up-to-date. Excellent attitude at the front desk. Clientele seemed to be young professionals and families. The price was much less than area competition. The location is fabulous, near the subway, in midst of dozens of restaurants and independent stores. Great option for...

For the quality of service and the accommodations, they could easily charge waay more than what they do. Brian at the front desk, is EXCEPTIONAL. Such a kind, friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, person, and extremely funny. Our daily interactions with him, made our trip even more enjoyable. We can't wait to go back.

This a renovated budget hotel in a prime Philadelphia location. Very easy to walk to sightseeing points of interest and restaurants. FYI, the Phash bus is free for seniors.
