Location was perfect

We stayed one night to attend a concert at Lincoln Financial Center. The hotel was spotless. Staff friendly, helpful and provided extremely clear directions to take the subway to the concert rather than pay high rates to park!

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.

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.

Weekend stay

The hotel was great. Location was on point right in the middle of everything we were able to walk to all the sites . Parking is right across the street. Loved that we were a block from the reading terminal market. We would definitely stay here again. Although the room was sort of small it wasn't too bad for just the two of us.

Excellent staff

Next door neighbor's loud talking voice woke me up at 3 AM. Staff immediately responded to my call by 1) knocking on neighbor's door (no response) and then 2) calling neighbor's room phone (yes response). Neighbor quieted down, in part, because staff was persistent and courteous to us both.
