Great place to stay to see a concert or show!

The location to the theaters and restaurants is perfect. Just walk out the door. The staff was so accommodating. We requested a room with a better view and we got it with no hassle.

A nice place to stay

Our room was very clean and orderly. The bed was especially comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to friends and family. My only complaint was the constant sound of the elevator running throughout the night.

This hotel was central to many great restaurants and bars which made our stay extra nice since we could walk short distances without having to find parking or paying for a cab.

I will do this again

This is a perfectly located, very comfortable, clean, and attractive hotel. The staff was polite, friendly, and helpful. There is parking next to the hotel at a very reasonable price. Although I can easily do day trips to Philadelphia, my experience at this hotel was so pleasant that I am planning to come back soon for at least one overnight. This was a very nice experience.

Great locale

This hotel is in a wonderful spot in downtown Phillly. The staff was very pleasant but the room cleaning was a bit spotty - they did not take the trash one day, for example. And I hate paying for Internet ($10/day), but this is hard to escape these days in a good hotel.

Go for coffee at La Colombe - farther than Starbucks but well worth it!
