Disappointing Hilton

This was, by far, the worst Hilton hotel I have ever experienced. Awful beds, il-fitting sheets, poor cleaning, etc., etc. My first disappointment was the lack of a computer safe, requiring me to carry my computer each day or check it with the bell person each day. Then, the beds were awful. Some kind of air mattress that was never comfortable. To make matters worse, the sheets were not made to fit the mattress. They were too small and popped off in the night. Next, the cleaning was random and poor. Sometimes the trash was removed, sometimes it wasn't. Sometimes the coffee was replenished and sometimes it wasn't. The elevators looked like they were never vacuumed. I could go on and on. Needless to say, I will not use this hotel again. As a regular traveler and Hilton Honors member, I don't understand how this place keeps the Hilton brand. Very disappointed.

Aminity needs a refresher

Hotel could use a rennovation, aminities seem somewhat beaten up. Friendly and helpful staff nearly makes up for it.

great location

Front desk was friendly and got me checked in quickly. The room was spacious. The exact spot where the hotel is isn't so pretty but it's right in Chinatown and an easy stroll to Reading Terminal.

Perfect for Center City

Great location, walking distance to many great restaurants and stores. Staff was great, super helpful. Room air conditioner was loud and didn't cool very well. Bed was clean and comfortable (memory foam type topper was not the greatest, but is the new trend, so it is hard to fault the hotel over something I don't like. Definitely would stay there again!!!

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

On site garage cannot accommodate trucks or large SUVs. Two blocks away is a garage that has an 8 foot clearance and is cheaper! No in and out, but cheaper is better!

Perfect Location in Philly

The Hilton is one block from the train station, so for anyone traveling from out-of-state, it is the perfect location. Even better is that it is only a few blocks from many tourist attractions- the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, Jefferson Square, the National Constitution Center,the US Mint (which has free self-guided tours!), and is situated almost directly on top of a mall. If you need to go to Thomas Jefferson Hospital, it is an extremely short walk. The value was great for the amenities, I would definitely recommend the Hilton Garden!

Quick Family Get Away

We were pleased with the location of the hotel,quick walk to everywhere. That surely helped for dinner and being close to the night life of Philly! Parking garage was alittle confusing but after a little explaination....we figured it out. Service and staff was very kind and informative. Only =/ mattresses in our room were softer than what are use to but wasn't impossible to a good nights sleep. Would consider going back on our next visit.
