Perfect location and lovely suite

We bumped up our reservation and it was totally worth it to nab a spot in the executive lounge area. The staff was friendly, the free goodies in the lounge were great, and the location is pretty perfect.

Easy access in Philly

We came in on amtrak and utilized the septa for all our travels around town. The hotel is directly across the street from one of the stations and was a vision of comfort and welcome as we climbed the stairs out of the subway. The staff was amazing, very kind and helpful. They gave great recommendations for local food and local sites to take in. We arrived several hours before check-in for a baseball game and were able to leave our luggage in a secure area until after the game. Warm and welcoming staff, definitely a hotel we would recommend as well as stay in again.

Great location in the center of downtown Philly

Even though Or1itz is offering a 15% discount on my next hotel for writing a review, I find that offer unhelpful in my last booking. There's a deadline to use the offer and the offer doesn't seem to apply to popular hotels close to main city attractions. That said, onto the review of the Double Tree. Great location with Septa access. Walking distance for many places in the city including the Convention Center and Reading Market. Very large room with couch. The couch was very uncomfortable because it was quite stiff but I suppose when you have hundreds of people using it, it has to be sturdy. We stayed on the ninth floor and there was no ice machine. We were provided an ice bucket in the room but no ice machine on our floor. Not sure if the other floors had it because I didn't feel like walking around looking for one on another floor. Self parking was not the most convenient because there were a few stairs from the garage to the hotel lobby. That was not very easy with luggage. I liked the extra vanity outside of the bathroom so two people can get ready and allows for laying out make up and other things. Hotel was even nice enough to give us free internet when asked.

Great time.

The only problem I had was the parking. I didn't expect the parking charge. It wasn't listed on the website and came as a shock to me. Otherwise, very good stay with a wonderful staff.

Doubletree Hotel Philadelphia

This hotel is one of the best hotels I've stayed in. The staff are so warm and friendly. The rooms are very clean and comfortable with great views of city. We stayed on the executive floor. The choice for breakfast is second to none. As for the evening the cakes and other treats were to die for. All the staff help us with info which was first class. I can't praise the staff enough.

Great for Pride weekend!

This hotel is basically right near the Gayborhood, so it's a perfect value and location for attending the Pride events. Beds were comfortable, AC is great condition, Free premium channels, and great privacy.
