On the plus side the hotel is very quiet and somewhat "off the beaten path" yet just around the corner from one of the nicest areas in Philadelphia. I do business in Philadelphia and appreciated that fact that this hotel is not overrun with loud tourists. While there is no valet, there are three garages within walking distance and parking is less expensive ($23 per 24 hours) than at the other hotels in town. And, no wait for the valet to get your car! Now for a few negatives. The rooms and the hotel itself need updating and renovating. The rooms are dark. Inadequate lighting. The furniture is worn. The walls are chipped. The area rug on the second floor has a huge stain that I found very unpleasant to look at each day. The carpeting in the hallways and on the stairs needs a good cleaning. Breakfast is served in a basement "café." The offerings were just adequate. The baked goods were stale and tasteless. I will consider staying at this hotel again mostly for the location and the quiet atmosphere. It has the potential to become a really great boutique hotel but it isn't one right now.
