Perfect midown location

I had meeting downtown Philadelphia and this was a great location. I walked to the local indoor market a block away and was able to get a wide variety of great food for almost nothing. I ate at the hotel the first night, got in really late due to flight delays, and they were so friendly, and the food was still tasty and fresh. The museums were less than a mile away and easy to walk to. A quick cab ride can get you almost anywhere you need to go.

In the Heart of Philly

This hotel is right on the city hall square. It was relatively easy to get to from 676. The room was nice and the bed comfy. Parking was extra money, and seemed a little pricey to me (but i think typically for the city). The staff was very friendly and helpful with getting cabs and answering any questions. Overall, a very nice experience.

They put us in a handicapped accessible room

Granted I was pretty out of it checking in, they put us in a handicapped accessible room without even mentioning it. There was nothing wrong with the room itself, I just thought it was a bit weird that they didn't save that room for a guest who actually needed it. Room was clean, staff was great. Overall I would stay again, I'd just make sure I got a room with a regular layout.

Very comfortable! GREAT location!!

Our only complaint was the very loud annoying humming coming from the in-room refrigerator. Once we unplugged the fridge, it was fine.
