Did not sleep for two nights in a row. The first room was a corner room in the back on the fifth floor. Two windows and two highways right outside the window. The second room was across the hall in the front of the building. Still very loud highway noise. They should distribute earplugs at check in. The hotel itself...

To be fair, the room was clean and I'm sure other rooms would have been better but by all means do not accept the rooms adjacent to the elevators. The noise level of these things going up and down woke us up several times, it sounded like the subway was right below us. The HVAC unit was very noisy as...

The free airport shuttle was nice and very timely. Nothing really around the hotel though. It was very noisy all night I could hear people wheeling their luggage in and out of rooms. I was right beside the stairwell so everything felt amplified.

The hotel is located not far from Penns Landing and great view of the Jersey shore and the Ben Franklin bridge. During the wintertime it appears that the area is quiet and not much tourist activity going on, but I suspect that during the warmer months that the area can be very busy. Getting to the property by using public...

The staff were very friendly and helpful. They suggested different restaurants. The room was great, overlooking the river and bridge! There were several breakfast choices and the coffee was good! I would definitely stay there again.

It's not located in downtown philly but if you have a car it's next to I-95 and Ben Franklin bridge. Parking is $30. Front desk is courteous. Clean corridors and smells nice. We had a nice size corner room with the view of the bridge. Free bkft from 6-10am. Use to be a Comfort Inn

Stayed there night before our flight to Orlando. We parked our car there and the they shuttled us to the airport. Rooms clean and comfortable. Breakfast was OK. Front Desk Guy Super Friendly and very accommodating. Our shuttle driver returning home from airport was also super friendly!! Rate was reasonable and included parking for 5 days. Would stay there again.
