A suite-hotel set in the middle of the action, the Embassy Suites Hotel Philadelphia combines apartment-style flexibility with free extras like breakfast and drinks at the evening Manager's Reception. An airy, high-windowed lobby welcomes guests, who can then cook whatever they like in the in-suite kitchenette before stepping onto the balcony overlooking Benjamin Franklin Parkway when the meal is done. Head over to the Business Link center if you have emails to send and websites to browse (fees may apply). Everything needed for a comfortable visit is provided for, with an on-site gym and convenience store. If you get hungry, you don't need to look far - TGI Friday's restaurant chain has a branch inside the hotel for classics from the grill.

Neighborhood
The Embassy Suites Hotel Philadelphia is located just steps away from the financial district, and several high-profile corporate locations, like the Philadelphia Convention Center. But it's not all about work, as the Franklin Institute and its hands-on exhibits are a mere couple of blocks away. Whether you're looking for a Broadway show at the Kimmel Center or the old-world appeal of the Italian Market, this hotel provides the starting point for any journey around Philadelphia. Also just minutes from the Vine Street Expressway, it's easy to reach other parts of the city from the Embassy Suites Philadelphia.
Hints and tips
Those looking for a mixture of both "high" and "pop" culture can take a short walk to visit the Philadelphia Museum of Art, where they will witness some of the world's most impressive European works, right after conquering the front steps made famous in the Rocky films.

Great central location to all downtown Philly.

Great location in downtown Philly. Only one expectation upgrade is that free parking is need for someone who is staying longer in the hotel each day coat like 47 dollars to have it park.

Great Location

Having stayed at a number of embassy suites, the place was a little less than I expected, but it definitely served its purpose. The service staff was great, but the front desk staff was not as accommodating. I would stay here again with a large group, as the suite sized room is hard to beat for the price.

Family and Business Friendly

The Embassey Suites in Philadelphia has a unique layout plan of rooms that took some getting used too. However, its that floor plan that make each room so unique. Spacious entry, living, dining room area. Kitchen area clean and plenty of room. I like the bath and bedroom each were separate rooms. A small balcony was a surprise. The neighborhood is good and close to many museums and tourist attractions. Plenty of foot traffic at night made it very comfortable to on the street late into the night. The staff was courteous and helpful. A cocktail hour each night was a great way to see and me others staying at the hotel. It gave a community spirit to the hotel. Not so anonymous and cold. I would definately stay there again!
