Nice place -- Bad room

The hotel location was perfect for our event at Kimmel Center. Our room location was awful. We were randomly assigned a handicapped room, located between the banks of elevators. All night, we heard mechanical noises of elevators and hotel guests were having conversations right at our door. Also, the sink did not drain. Housekeeping should have noticed that, explaining the poor score for room cleanliness. If we were staying another night, we would have had asked for a different room!

Wedding stay in Philly.

The doubletree was very convenient to the Kimmel Center where we attended a wedding and reception. We walked there in easily as it is basically across the street. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Easy check in, check out and room service. The indoor, rooftop pool was a great add-on. My only complaint is that there is not a robe in the room.

Weekend in Philly

Like this hotel for its convenient center city location and good quality that doesn't break the bank. No odd quirks or watch-outs, just a straightforward, all-you-need experience. Have stayed here on multiple occasions always seems the best value for the location.
