Weekend to explore downtown

Great location in center City... ideal location for nightlife or to take in a show, and within a short walk to Reading terminal. Hotel was very clean and staff friendly room could have been a little bigger.

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.

Good Hotel for Quick Stays

This hotel was a great place to stay for a quick trip (1 or 2 nights)! The beds were EXTREMELY comfortable and soft! The air conditioning was the BEST I've ever had in a hotel. The cookies they served were DELISH! (where can I get more of those?)! The staff and especially the concierge were very pleasant and willing to help. Movies in the room are quite expensive, but when I went to exit from the movie section, they gave us a $5 off code so we did watch a movie. Was disappointed that thee wasn't free wifi. Most places you go have free wifi. It looked like the cleaning had been skimmed over....not very well in the bathroom, but not a big deal to me....was clean enough for me! Overall a good place and experience!

worst part were the elevators

overall the hotel and the rooms were nice and comfortable, but 4 elevators for a 24 story hotel, and every elevator goes to every floor was a bit ridiculous. our room was on the 12th floor and we had to wait ~20 minutes every time we wanted to leave the hotel just for the elevator to stop on our floor.
