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.

Great hotel with excellent location

Had a great experience at this hotel with my two sons. We were in a very central location but the room was still quiet.

Not What's expected for the money

I did not have a Good experience. The booking process was a hassle. The staff is very unprofessional, in a bad mood, the hotel smells old and the rooms aren't clean as try Hey should. I won't visit this hotel again which is a shame due to it's awesome location in the center city area.

This Place Sucks

The staff is very unprofessional, they do not understand decency and professionalism. The rooms are very small and piled up. They are dirty. I wouldn't recommend this place, it was a horrible all around experience.

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.
