Great location but a little noisy

The staff was great- very friendly and helpful. Location is great for people that want to be near the common tourist attractions in Philadelphia and the night life. The hotel is a historic building so it's very quaint and cozy. The continental breakfast was very well put together and a definite "value add". Unfortunately I was on a ground floor room and it was VERY noisy at night.

Wonderful, historical hotel

This is a great hotel in a perfect location for touring the historical sites. The Liberty Bell and Independence Hall plus other attractions are just a short few blocks away. They also have a nice european morning buffet featuring do it yourself Belgian Waffles. Yummy!
