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.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Skip the in hotel food options and opt for local cuisine instead. So many options and all great. Hotel food is only sub-par.

Best rate for Center City Philly

This was my 3rd time staying at the Center City Doubletree and I absolutely love it there. The location is right in the heart of center city and ideal for anyone wanting to be in the middle of the 'action'. What also makes it great is the value. You simply cannot find a comparable rate with the cleanliness and comfort that Doubletree offers. Plus, warm cookies when you check in!
