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.

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.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The best Italian restaurant in Philly (Maggiano) is two blocks away from the hotel. They cater to groups and a very decent price for an excellent meal.

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 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.

Good choice in Center City

The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The location on the north side of the big convention center might not appeal to every traveler. The convenience of Chinatown and Reading Market was good for me. It's a few blocks to transit stops, but the airport shuttle was very convenient to arrange. There's no pool, but the lower-level fitness center was fine. I think the hotel is in an older building with a totally new interior.

Chinatown and Reading Market would provide an amazing array of foods for many days staying at this hotel. I never even looked into eating in the hotel restaurant, but it was another option.
