Incredible Center City, Philadelphia, Hotel!

The hotel and service were amazing! From the moment we pulled up in front of the hotel, the staff were eager to assist, giving us parking options (self-park with in-and-out priveleges was only $25 and was right next to the hotel) and restaurant ideas. Warm chocolate chip cookies were provided at check-in, which was a welcoming touch (beware, those with nut allergies; they contain walnuts as marked on the package). We selected a special option to get a beautiful and spacious corner room for a couple dollars extra (and it was lovely and on the top floor with a wonderful view of the city!). The room was clean, luxurious, and the beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed a lovely breakfast in their wonderful restaurant, with a view of the city below. The waiter was kind enough to work out one free continental breakfast for us, since we weren't given the coupon upon check-in (also part of a deal). The location couldn't have been better as we were within easy walking distance of many landmarks and enjoyed a short walk to excellent shopping and Rittenhouse Square. Check-out was a breeze and my only regret was that we didn't have time to check out the pool. We must have scored an incredible room rate, because when I checked back later, the rate had gone up by almost $100 for the same date. I will definitely check out the Doubletree for my next downtown Philadelphia stay!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

For a quick but adequate dinner, the Fox and Hound restaurant (and sports bar) is just a couple blocks away at Spruce and 15th. When we were there on a weekday night, it seemed that a painting class was going on in one half of the restaurant.

Weekend in Philly

Like this hotel for its convenient center city location and good quality that doesn't break the bank. No odd quirks or watch-outs, just a straightforward, all-you-need experience. Have stayed here on multiple occasions always seems the best value for the location.

One night stay

It was very nice. The service was great and the pool was cool. Although it was crowded, the free breakfast was a delightful treat.

Great Stay

Visited Philadelphia to pick up our daughter who spent the summer interning with Broad Street Ministries. The hotel was a very short walk away with convenient on-site parking, which we were even allowed to use after checking out and spending our last day touring on foot.
