Great Value

I booked two nights at below $100 rate. So it was great value for me. The place was very clean. The carpet looked new. The front door was locked at night so there was a sense of security. Continental breakfast was fresh.

Met all our needs

When we got there we discovered that they were overbooked (lots of graduations) but they put us up next door at the Hampton Inn for that night (sweet!) and then we moved over to Days Inn for the rest of our stay. Staff were wonderful, room was clean, had good products, nice beds. We also got a discount on our parking at a lot two short blocks away. All in all, a decent place, especially for that price in Center City. Also, don't be put off by the soup kitchen next door - it's part of city life, after all.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Parking in Center City is horrible and expensive - take advantage of the discount you get from the front desk - the lot where you get the Days inn discount is 2 blocks away so try to drop off your stuff at the front door or just be prepared for a little walk.

Close to everything

The Philadelphia Travelodge was pretty basic, but close to the Convention Center and the historic district. I would recommend it for the budget conscious visitor to Center City Philadelphia.

Great overnight stay

We spent a weeknight in the hotel just to get away and see the city. It was nothing special if you are looking for a place to knock your socks off, but it was definitely exactly what was needed. The staff was great, we came in very early int he day and as soon as the rooms were cleaned they let us check in so we didn't have to lug our things around. The room was the perfect temperature, very clean. Nothing big but had the necessities. We were able to have a room without side windows which was a plus (some rooms only have windows into the hallways. It ws a fabulous location, easy to get down to Penns Landing and South street and walking distance from Old City Philly, the lIberty Bell and the parks. There was some convention center construction going on but the noise was not an issue.

The Suare Burger in Franklin park is about 5 blocks and great for a lunch and the subway station is about two blocks away with a quick trip to South Street for great food, shopping and nightlife. Very managable location for anything you're looking to see.

Haven of quiet

Three blocks from the location of the professional conference I was attending, the hotel provided the services I most enjoy - friendly, efficient staff and cleanliness. The premises have been newly redesigned by an excellent architect, so the small urban space in central Philadelphia is efficiently used - most rooms opening onto a skylit atrium. I requested a room on the top floor (4th) with a window to the outside, so I could enjoy a view of office buildings, historical residential houses, and the distant horizon. The continental breakfast included in the price was more than adequate. The hotel is only 2 blocks from the Reading Terminal Market where a vast array of ethnic foods is available as well as fresh produce from nearby farms in Pennsylvania. On Sundays, when the market is closed, or when one wants an affordable meal in a restaurant, one can chose from the many options in China Town that is only 4 blocks away.
