hotels that seem to have given thought to youe every need. Its located in downtown Philadelphia just off the entertainment and shopping areas. Its only minutes away from the Avenue of the Arts Pennsylvania Convention Center S Antique Row and the Historic Independence Hall area. A warm and friendly hotel where good taste and artwork abounds. Its rooms are designed to reflect the great ships of the 30s in the fabrics furnishing and decor. The amenities one expects are all there from large fluffy towels to hari dryers. Their television offerings are several complimentary movie channels plus sports and many other favorites. In addition there is a fitness center a complimentary guest e-mail computer center. A large breakfast buffet that is complimentary includes fresh beaked goods as well as yogurt cereals and more. With discounted nearby indoor parking very reasonable rates and a staff of friendly employees its become the favorite of many travellers.

Great find in a big city

Loved this hotel! Great location. Walking distance to all the sites. Historic old place well maintained! Lots of charm. Small room but had everything we needed. Breakfast was great too. Not the prepackaged stuff. If you are looking for the large chain type places this is not for you. If you want charm, ombiance, and don't care about the size of your room this is your place.

The Perfect Spot for a Philly Getaway

The staff at this hotel are fantastic. We arrived early Sunday morning and had planned to drop bags at the hotel and sight-see until check-in time but it was pouring down rain. We went to the hotel to seek shelter to find our hotel had lost power. No worries. The staff had the situation completely under control. They gave us coffee and snacks and let us dry out in the Grand Room. A hotel without power could be a time of crisis, but the guests were happy and laughing. The staff was making coffee runs and one gentleman ran home (across the street) and brought back a vat of scrambled eggs for a guest who was grumpy about not being able to shower. They go out of their way here to make you feel at home. I will stay here every time I am in Philadelphia.

Good deal for awesome neighborhood

Rooms are nothing special, but you're not paying for the rooms -- you're paying for the location, which can't be beat. Across the street from a great beer/wine/cheese bar, and it just gets better from there. Anything you'd want to eat is within 5 blocks, including the Reading Terminal Market.

Great Location!

Staff were very friendly and helpful. I was in town for a conference and the conference center was just a short walk away with many great food options between the Inn and the conference.
