Nice hotel near Redding Terminal Market

The hotel was very nice, no complaints. Cheaper than the downtown Sheraton I usually stay at & other chain hotels in the area. Biggest perk is that it is very near the convention center & the Redding Terminal Market, with lots of inexpensive fresh, local food & local charm (including Amish booths).

good hotel

Pros: Clean room; friendly and helpful staff; convenient location to public transportation and not too far from Philadelphia's historic center. Cons: Room's size is kind of small; some furniture is rather crammed; no complimentary breakfast.

Good place, good price.

The hotel is next to convention center in heart of downtown, but cheaper than the four star places. What you give up is the fancy pool, gym, etc. And the room is small but nicely appointed. Free wifi and computers in lobby (most four stars charge). If you don't need the pool and space of fancy places this place is very serviceable and a lot cheaper. Staff was quite friendly and helpful. I'd return.

Great Location, Great Price

The hotel had a fantastic location. It was a 2 minute walk to Reading-Terminal Market, 10 minute walk to the Old City Historical Sites, and a 1 minute walk to Chinatown. The price was also unbeatable and they even let us check in at 12 rather than 3. The room was very clean and comfortable. We ordered a room with a King Size bed (we went as a couple) but we got two Full Size beds and so sleeping was very uncomfortable because we wanted to share a bed. Also, you could not get cold water for drinking from the faucet because it came out only warm or hot. Finally, we wished that there had been a refrigerator for perishable food.

I reserved a w/chair accessible room but the Sheraton had reserved a regular room. Fortunately, they had one available.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

When making the reservation ask [...] for the cross streets. I Googled for directions which gave the address as 1201 Race St. It actualy was 1201 12th St. between Vine and Race. We wasted 30 mins. looking for the hotel. Your survey needs a N/A. We only had a snack at the hotel so I can't give an accurate response to dining. The snack was french fries and they were excellent.

Good value & location for the price

The hotel building is on the corner of Race and North 12th St., with the entrance on the latter. It's not very obviously marked and I drove past it once without noticing while trying to find it. The room itself was very comfortable and clean. The only issue I has was that the body wash dispenser in the shower stall was empty when I got there. Valet parking was reasonable but if I were staying for more than one night I might've looked for cheaper parking elsewhere.

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.
