Great hotel for the price

I stayed at this hotel to attend a conference at a hotel a couple of blocks away. At that hotel, even the conference rate was 80% more than this one. I wasn't expecting much at that price, but I was totally pleasantly surprised by what I got. Courteous service, very clean and spacious room, free wifi with a decent speed, quietness... I would definitely stay there again if there is another conference at the same place.

What happened with the plumbing?

On my Spring 2015 1 night stay in a standard room on the 4 floor the most problematic things for me was the bathroom fixtures. These may or may not be the same for all rooms. The sink and shower stall water control was a modern single-lever control that with a half turn or less went from cold to burning hot. On first use I almost scalded myself at the sink. With the shower, as there is a glass door and side panel, unless you are over 6 and half feet tall to reach in to turn on the water from the outside, you must stand under the shower and take you chances. The room otherwise was of modern boutique-ish design with a nice foyer area and with a bench and coat pegs. There is a storage unit with a seat and pull out shelf in the room that serves well and is a good break from bedroom furniture used in other places as we see in motels and some mid priced hotels. I like conversions of solid old commercial buildings such as this. Good size window. The location on the north side of the convention center is OK and I am used to walking through Center City at night. It's up to you to if the water situation is wrong for you or find out if it exists in any room you may stay in - it spoiled my comfort. Oh one more thing about the bathroom, the plastic or fibreglas base of the shower was defective of not installed properly that is there was no support under it and it flexed under my weight as I moved around.

Great location

It's close by to the market, which is awesome. There's a parking lot right across the street (although you pay $30 a day), which is convenient.

Very nice

The facilities were very comfortable for my situation (traveling with an adult son). The location couldn't be beat for convenience, but the biggest positive was the staff, who were exceptionally courteous and helpful.

Comic con weekend

Staff is friendly and immediately brought us more coffee when we asked at 3am....with a smile! We were staying for a convention so being right next to the convention center was perfect. We wish there was a bit more of a value for $179 a night because ive stayed in hotels in other cities just like this one for less than $150 and had way more amenities such as a pool or fridge or microwave. Still, the customer service we got was great and I would recommend it.
