This staff works hard

Since the hotel is on the "fringe" area, I feel the hotel team there do the little extras to make it better. With the bar specials and breakfast they really try to make it comfortable.

A little diamond in the rough.

Booked hotel to attend nearby conference. Lobby and several floors under construction, however, we were warmly greeted and given a room on the top floor that was pleasant and met my expectations. Breakfast buffet was in lower conferance room. Choices were plentiful and well presented. The staff were cheerful and very accomodating. The pool is v. small and good for a splash. A couple of kids were there when I went to sit in the "not so hot tub". There seemed to be a problem and the foam looked a little sketchy so I passed. Overall, for what it is, I imagine that this property will be somewhat of class act upon completion.

Decent Hotel with Decent Location.

The rooms were clean and the service was friendly. My room had a flat screen tv and a huge bathroom. As always the Hampton Inns have free breakfast and internet with your stay. But the parking is $24/day so you should include that in your overall tally. The hotel is on the edge of center city and chinatown. The immediate area feels kinda shady with the Penn Convention Center there.

Maggianos is a nice Italian restaurant just a few blocks away. The crab cake app with the tomato aioli is pretty good and the trademark Rigatoni "D" is pretty darn good.

Nice stay

The hotel was fine as was the hot buffet breakfast. I was disappointed with the pool. The outside area was not cleaned in the time I was there and the same "stuff" was at the bottom of the pool the first day as of day four--whne I decided not to even try the water.

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.
