good value for the $

The hotel is around 5-7 minutes walk to the chinatown. Love the bed. Nice room. Maybe because of the swimming pool, you can smell the Chlorine water. I would want to stay again.

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.

Location of convenience

Family weekend. Conveniently located near outing.Other sights were easily available along with shopping options. Helpful staff. Quick service. Fantastic with their suggested entertainment,etc.I would suggest parking your car and using mass transit system to move about or walk. It is close to everything downtown.

Unbeatable location for the price!

The Front desk staff by the name [...] went out of her way to make our stay comfortable, we had gone to see our son off to a local college, she helped us plan our shopping around the hotel. The breakfast was great and plentiful, the kitchen staff were very nice and hard working. The availability of internet with a printer was definitely a bonus. I would highly and proudly recommend this hotel for business and pleasure travelers.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

It is close the Philly China town and this helped greatly with shopping and food. The bus and SEPTA connections were within a few blocks, the area is well lit near the hotel and feels safe. The hotel staff know the areas well and were able to guide us through many of our shopping requests. The hotel has great staff and that is what makes it a great place to stay!

Great location very nice staff

I booked this for the Girl Scout event in Philadelphia at the Convention Center. Couldn't get any closer-right across the street. Breakfast was perfect great variety. Coffee and tea 24 hours a day-wonderful. Came back from long day needing a cup of tea for a sore throat right there-who could ask for more. The food in the snack bar (candy) not overly priced. Staff is wonderful, polite kind easy to work with. Stay here.

great hotel

Great hotel, especially for the price! Only a few blocks from restaurants, bars, shopping, and several public transportation options. The hotel was nice and clean and the staff was friendly - they even let us check-in 3 hours early! Will definitely stay here again.
