Location, location, location (and warm cookies)

Had a business meeting nearby, and this hotel fit the bill in terms of price and location. Much to do nearby, rooms were spacious and comfortable; however, staff seemed a little unknowledgable, and amenities (like flavored waters in the lobby left empty all day) left more to be desired. Still a decent hotel, would stay again.

Skip the in hotel food options and opt for local cuisine instead. So many options and all great. Hotel food is only sub-par.

Great Location, Great Staff

I visited this hotel during the Made in America Festival and it was only 20 minutes walking from the Ben. Franklin parkway, which was great! Although the hotel room could have been a little cleaner and the pool a little larger the hotel staff was great! Nancy at the front desk was great and when we had problems with our A/C they immediately sent someone up to fix it.

good value for the location

We always stay here when we come to Philadelphia because the location is great. This time the fitness center was upgraded, with a hot sauna. But the lockers in the sauna room were hard to figure out.

Good hotel

Overall, this was a great experience. The hotel was clean and the room was nice. But, why only good, in the heading? High-speed Internet 9.95 a day, and 25.00 for parking. These are expected amenities in 2014. I feel like they are nickel and dimeing me. Its in a great location in the city center

Weekend to explore downtown

Great location in center City... ideal location for nightlife or to take in a show, and within a short walk to Reading terminal. Hotel was very clean and staff friendly room could have been a little bigger.
