Reviewed yesterday NEW

I'm here now, about to check out within the next hour. (Sigh) Where do I begin? First of all, I'm disappointed. My room is pretty basic and pretty dated with scuffs and markings all along the wall and baseboard. When I first walked in my room, it appeared to have not been vacuumed. There was a piece of plastic on...

Spent two nights for business. Room was clean and spacious and the view over piers was stunning. The best part is the shuttle service that takes your anywhere within two miles. You can even be picked up from the city to get back to the hotel. Breakfast was okay but fresh coffee and fruits helped a lot. Overall a very...

This was our first trip to Philly. This hotel is in a perfect location!! It is near a lot of historical monuments, has a nice view, and was great value. We parked our vehicle and never had to drive anywhere. Would absolutely stay here again!! On another note we absolutely loved Philly!! You need to visit

Stayed here for 3 nights. Rooms OK, good selection for breakfast and nice staff. Simple 10 - 15 minute walk to get in to the center of the city. Make sure you take time to check out the fabulous little boutiques and stores on 2nd and 3rd St's.

For a college student trip this hotel is located conveniently to many of the historic sites and breakfast is substantial. The breakfast staff was wonderful, especially Jamilla. The students appreciated wifi availability. We took advantage of the shuttle and found it very convenient. Parking was a bit pricey for the condition of the outside lot.

Stayed here with family when in Philadelphia for the Phillies 5K. The hotel was very clean basic and everything you need it. We did not find the noise from the bridge overbearing.

The reviews stated it was very loud. There is a highway outside with sirens. Not much different than any other city. We live in a rural area and I did not find the sounds to be overbearing.

Unbelievably noisy. I was on the 8th floor and it felt like trucks were driving through the room all night. They have not made efforts to sound proof these rooms. I have traveled for work around the USA for 25 years and this was the worst experience. Sure there is a flat screen and body wash in the bathroom and...
