Great experience!!

The hotel staff were very helpful and amenities were just right. The room was comfortable and free wi-fi a real plus. The small fitness center was perfect and indoor pool relaxing. The good experience was only slightly lessened from the extensive construction still occurring across the street but at least they don't start working until 0630!!

While in Philly, highly recommend dining at the "Fork" restaurant at 306 Market Street, downtown Philly. This is a great bistro with exceptional staff and chef.

Good price, bad location

The hotel was inexpensive, which was nice in the Philly area. While the overall neighborhood is fine, the hotel itself is difficult to get to, and unless you knew it was there prior to your trip, you would not find it. The fitness center was smaller than my bedroom.

loved it!

pros: very nice staff, comfy beds, clean rooms, AC, indoor pool, hbo :), very quiet despite construction next door. free breakfast if you wake up early enough. great for couples cons: expect traffic if you're traveling after 5pm it's very busy right off the exit; some noise in the AM because of construction on surrounding streets but not so bad that it disturbed sleep; vending machines are only in main lobby and I was on the 9th floor.

Good Hotel

Good hotel very close to the Convention Center and Dowtpwn Philadelphia. I would have preferred more attention in the preparation of breakfast buffet: waiters used the same gloves to clean the tables and handle foods !

Perfectly Acceptable, decent location

The hotel was very nice, but the nearby construction on the Phila. Convention Center harmed the experiemce. Roads are blocled off and it is difficult to drive to the hotel. Parking lot was extremely small and the valet parking ended up leaving your car lost behind one or two others. Breakfast buffet not up to usual Hampton standards

Great location

The room was clean and the bed and pillows very comfortable. The location was central to everything. Staff was very friendly and the breakfast was good. The only problem we had was that our toilet broke at 10:00 at night and we were told that it couldn't be checked until the next morning. We had to use the lobby restroom.
