Stayed here for two nights for a family trip. The location is terrific, with multiple restaurants and bars nearby, a Wawa (local convenience store with great coffee) on the same block, and within walking distance of historic and tourist sites and shopping. The people who checked us in were very nice and welcoming and the housekeeping staff friendly. The room...

The location is great for shopping, restaurants and bars. Keep this in mind if you are looking for a quiet stay, this may not be the property for you. We stayed two nights. Both nights, there were groups of people partying in adjacent rooms. The swearing, fighting, and music could be heard through the walls very clearly. We requested a...

We were a group of three and shared a room for two nights on our first visit to Philly. We were very impressed! The rooms were large and well appointed, and the whole hotel was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was reasonably varied - two meat eaters and one vegetarian all found something to eat. The biggest advantage here, however, is...

This was my first trip to Philadelphia, and I wanted to make sure I stayed in the city and that I would be walking distance to the historic points of interests. Once I got over the hurdle of what it costs to stay in the city, I was happy with my hotel choice. The location was great, plenty to see...

Within walking distance of the convention center and historic sights. Staff was terrific. Food was good. Local law enforcement visible in the area and very helpful. Bed comfortable& lots of hot water. Micro and mini fridge. All around good deal- much less cost and more amenities than the hotels closer to convention center.

We have stayed at this location many times and this visit was the worst!

The hot delicious, healthy and appetizing meal gave us fresh kick start to our busy day ahead. Also the room was spacious, comfortable and well equipped with mini fridge and microwave. We felt connected without any lag from the free wifi. The only pet peeve was the unfinished drink left behind from previous guest.

Nice basic hotel. My family joined me on a business trip, and this hotel was a good fit. The room was basic, clean and comfortable. There is a small refrigerator and a microwave. The breakfast was well stocked, with plenty of options. Overall good hotel. I would stay again.
