Nice hotel, no free parking

This is a nice airport hotel, about 2 miles from the terminals. It has a vibrant bar feel in the lobby, although I did not go there. The rooms are realtively quiet. The hotel charges $7 for overnight parking, which effectively meant the rate was $7 higher than stated. The Or bitz offering when I booked the room said there was free parking.

Too Far from City Center...

Nice hotel but located too far from Philly Center. Booked regular room but these are extremely tiny rooms with shower wall / glass adjacent to bedroom. Will not stay here again.

Excellent hotel

This is my second time staying at this hotel and once again I couldn't be more impressed. I wouldn't recommend it for a family of four but for singles or couples it doesn't get any better. Not too big but just small enough. Huge comfy bed, very nice shower and bath area and plenty of parking. The actual location of the hotel and the toilet in the bathroom were my only negatives (the entrance to the hotel is hard to navigate in tight traffic and the toilet wouldn't flush fully...I guess to conserve water. Very European and kinda gross!). For singles and couples I highly recommend if the price is right.

airport convenience

Very cool hotel. Stayed in a handicap room so not sure how other rooms were, but this one was nice and roomy, airy and very comfortable. Loved the decor! Needed a few more swipes with the ole bleach cloth but that overall new clean feel hasn't worn off yet. Didn't use amenities, so I don't know about that. Bartender was sharp as a tack, very professional. Thought it was a bit expensive for what you get but it's hard to put a price on safety & convenience. Too bad the hotel doesn't offer a free coffee bar (with high quality coffee) in the lobby with at least bagels or muffins for am. It would have felt like a better deal. I would definately stay here again.

Aloft in Philadelphia

Another Starwood W-ish brand extension. The bar area is small but convivial. There's some kind of do-it-yourself canteen. Room was clean and bed was wonderful. Large high def TV. BUT, it seems to me the hotel is overpriced by about $30. With Tax it came to $175, and that's a lot to stay at an airport hotel that isn't directly connected to a terminal. That said, staff was friendly, helpful. No views, but, eh, it's an airport.

Attending a Wedding

I attended a friends wedding. The location of hotel was convenient to airport and downtown Philadelphia and the sports complex. I really liked the contemporary feel of the hotel. The atmosphere was upbeat and the whole lobby was classy with glass all around so you can see the outside. Clean and classy The only issue I really had was when I checked in I had to pay an extra $7.00 per day parking fee. The gate worked very poorly and you had to mostly use the call button to get out of the complex not good when there is a long line of cars exiting..
