After a very long day of flight cancelations because of a recent snow storm, I was relieved to be in the competent, friendly hands of Lashai. Knowing how tired I was, she was pleasant and efficient, getting me to my room as quickly as possible. Even after her own night of dealing with cancelations and weary travelers, Lashai was all...

Stayed here for one night whilst in Philadelphia. It was a great central location. The hotel itself was average and breakfast was nothing spectacular. However, I gave this a 4 star rating as the staff and service at front desk and breakfast area was excellent. As an IHG member both me and my wife were very well looked after. The...

Fast, efficient check-in experience. Staff was friendly. Grace at the front desk was very helpful. Guest room on 12th floor was very quiet. Must be well insulated too, because I did not touch the HVAC and it was about 20 degrees outside and inside temperature was very comfortable nonetheless. Seating area for breakfast felt a little cramped. And the buffet...

I chose this hotel for convenience to Rittenhouse square and other restaurants and a short walk to the Convention Centre. I'm a gold member so I had that going for it as well. Like a lot of hotels in city centers, sometimes your not quite sure what you might get. This is an older hotel, but everything was very clean,...

Great staff. The hotel was fine when I visited and stayed for 4 nights during Greenbuild Expo. All staff were very helpful and very polite greeting you very politely when they saw you. The manager was great. I was allowed to use her office computer when the computers for customers were having a few issues that were rectified pretty quickly....

Stayed here for Friday-Sunday. The hotel is well kept. As pointed out in other reviews, the staff is exceptionally welcoming and helpful. The breakfast was all right and the room large enough. Also as pointed out elsewhere, the attendants at the garage (which is not owned by the hotel) can be less than welcoming and helpful. Parking can be self...

Excellent location within a couple blocks of Independence Hall east of Broad Street. Accomodations are fairly basic but solid. Surprisingly good view of South Philly. Parking on premises, which was key, traveling with 9 month-old twins.

The room décor was dated. Worn carpeting, dated and broken furniture, etc. Very uncomfortable and noisy. My "free upgrade" included a broken desk/table and needing to call for towels to be delivered as the room had none. Wi-Fi was inconsistent and hospitality was average at best. By the way, I'm an IHG Rewards Member, and I do not plan to...
