Great Location Great People

Upon arriving at the Doubletree 3 hours before the standard checkout time, the very nice woman working the front desk found a room that was ready and fit our reservation and set us up right away. The cookies are always a plus but the staff was outstanding and the high point for me. This hotel is walking distance to pretty much everything in Center City and in a very safe part of Philly.

Don't look for hospitality.

The hotel was definitely older and run down. The rooms were small. I'm pretty sure most of the staff have never heard of the word hospitality much less know how to exhibit it. We waited for a long item in the lobby to check in and to check out. That's without a line in front of us. The desk staff just went about their business occasionally looking up to see us, but not acknowledge us.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

A lot of restaurants were within walking distance, but most lacked hospitality or flavor to the food. The Perch Pub right next door was very good. Good service, good food and good drinks.

Fun weekend away

Hotel is in a great location in the heart of the city. Had a nice hot tub and indoor pool. Staff were very courteous and helpful. Beds were comfortable and higher level floors have great views of the city. Only problem is that with only 4 elevators, you could be waiting for one for a while.

Nice stay and great location

the room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. the best part about the stay was the central location - close to everything, and very safe! the only thing was that the walls were a bit thin, so it got a little loud at times

Great service

Among the great location and accesibility, what capture my attention was it service, staff was very friendly and has a well knowledge of the city. They went over my expectation even when they leave me information on my door after I ask something and at the moment of the question they don't have the answer, they check and find it. When I saw the info it was a detail I never expect. I recommend it.

Fantastic Center City Location

The location of the hotel is wonderful, near tons of cultural sites (including the next door Wilma Theater) and it was a great value. I would definitely stay here again.
