Not as expected horrible experience!

Upon arrival the hotel appeared to be in a seedy area of Philadelphia-for single ladies traveling alone we did not feel safe. upon entering the hotel, the front desk clerk immediately stated he had just moved form New York and was not familiar with hotel or city. We checked in and went to the 7th floor-the last room available. The room was NOT as expected view of alley mattresses were lumpy and uneven (2 beds) bedding was mismatched bathroom dirty and small black bugs in bathtub not as expected for the price paid at all. When I went downstairs to look on computer for another property, another guest using the computer warned me to find another hotel, she was doing the same thing due to bed bugs in HER room! I was itching from the time we entered the hotel! AND to make matters worse, the doorman and taxi driver got into an argument right in front of the hotel - we feared they might get into a physical altercation-taxi driver was mad because we did not have a longer fare, and the doorman would not close his door. It was BAD. This experience was ALL bad. I would NOT recommend this hotel.

Overnight trip to Philadelphia

Excellent location directly across from Convention Center and Reading Terminal Market. Hotel was clean and tastefully decorated. The bar in the lobby had a nice light fair menu and the free breakfast was great. Ample public parking in all directions close to the hotel($20/night). The view of the Philadelphia skyline from our 9th floor room was fantastic. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Philly.
