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.

NSCAA Convention

This hotel was perfectly placed for the convention center. The Reading terminal market is a great place to eat during the day. Overall I felt the area was a bit sketchy but the staff at the hotel could not have been more helpful or friendly, nothing was too much trouble. I was a little disappointed that my room had a very tiny window with no real view of the outside world but I would stay there again if I needed to be near the convention center.

Great Business Accomodation

The most impressing thing about the hotel was the staff. From the desk staff to the restaurant and bar - all went out of their way to be informative and friendly. The room's desk was great for my business needs, the wireless worked well and the bed was super comfy! Last but certainly not least - great bathroom!

Fabulous Hotel for the money

We got a fabulous deal on this hotel! The rooms are gorgeous, and we had a room on the 9th floor with a terrific view of the city. Hardwood floors in the entry way, followed by a contemporary bathroom. Overall, a great room for a really good rate.

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).

Excellent value and convenience

Attended a trade show at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia. The hotel was right next to the Convention Center. Restaurants of all types were no more than a two block walk. The hotel was extremely clean, well lit. The rooms were very nicely appointed and very clean. I would go back there for a personal trip without hesitation.
