Great inside, so so outside

We were concerned when we reached the hotel. There is no hotel parking and we had to park two blocks away and walk. It was around 10 PM and there was a big line of homeless waiting to get into the hospice next to hotel. However, once we entered the hotel, we were greeted warmly and checked in quickly. Inside the hotel was well lit and clean. The room was clean, lots of pillows, clean bath, adequate soap, shampoo, towels etc for our family of four. The wifi was quick and no hassles. It was quiet inside the room with no street noise and we had a good sleep. Morning, the free breakfast was nice with a variety of breads, pancakes, fresh omlets, variety of cereal, milk, yogurt, juices, coffee, tea and hot chocolate. Check out was a breeze and our car was safe in the parking lot. Overall, for being right in the city center and the amenities offered, it was well worth the money we paid.

Good location, not so good rooms

Location: On Race street. Central to most touristy and business needs. Convention center walkable distance. Lobby: Shabby. Staff polite. Room: Shabby with wash basin right next to door. Paint peeling from all doors. Bathroom just tub and toilet with no space, no basin. No closets, just a rack. Internet patchy. Breakfast: Hearty, in warm but tiny basement. Very helpful server.

Good location and value for money for Convention centre on a budget

Great location, very close to convention centre. Clean, compared to many budget hotels. Room is ordinary, but with all necessary conveniences. In room safe very useful. Staff friendly, very obliging. Will stay again.

The staff were great, very helpful. The gift bag was a really nice touch. The location was great, with walking distance to the hop on hop of bus, and food markets. The only bad thing is the room had a lot of noise due to the water pipes.

Decent stay in a very good location

I booked my 2 night stay at the Days Inn at the last minute for a conference in Philadelphia. Hotel was priced decentl for a single room with two double beds. Building itself looks newly renovated. Room was clean and facilities were decent. Continental breakfast was a welcome addition. Staff was helpful and friendly; no problems with checking in and out. The best thing about my stay was its location: just at the back of the convention center, it was very convenient to go back and forth between the center and the hotel. It's also right inside center city, couple of blocks from chinatown, reading market and city hall and less than a mile from Rittenhouse Square. Since it's at the back of the convention center, I felt safe walking at night because the streets are well lit. In all I was satisfied with my stay.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Cross over the highway and park on that side of the town, plenty of free street parking.

Bad Experience

Arrived at 6 pm for check in only to be told that they overbooked and there were no double rooms left. We were given a room with room with one double bed and two very uncomfortable roll away beds. Next we discovered the air conditioning did not work. We were provided with a fan. Room was on first floor and there was much noise throughout the night, including someone knocking on our door at 3 am. Hotel is located close to convention center, but also next to a homeless shelter. The continental breakfast was ok, but the toaster was broken. When we complained about these issues, hotel desk clerk refused to discount our room. Ask for a manager but was told they would not be in until after we left the next morning. Stay Away.

So so accomadations

The last two days of my stay, the elevator didnt work, I had to ask for towels as the housekeeper hadn't left any and the air wasn't working right in my room. I would say it's ok for a one or two night stay but definitely not more than that. I would pick a different place next time.
