clean, large, and comfortable

Checked in earlier, room was ready and a pleasant surprise. Large, with king bed and a sitting area. The hotel staff were helpful, courteous, and pleasant. Room was very clean, and the bed was super. Walking distance to center city and not a bad walk to South Street if you have the inclination. I'd go back and probably will soon.

Terrific location and value

Attended a trade show at convention center...this is a great location...just across the street (even in bad weather this is easy)and right next to the Market (best steak sandwiches anywhere). The staff is very friendly and professional, the breakfast buffet is escellent and the beds comfortable. This was our third stay and we will return

Not worth the price

The room was fine, but not worth the price. The last time I stayed neared the airport and the room was just as good and less money. At the airport parking was $7.00, here it was $31.00. There was rust around the drainage in the tub. I had to call the frond desk for room service. The two numbers and the button went to voice mail.

Absolutely excellent service!

I was there for a conference, stayed two nights. The hotel was totally booked becasue of the conference. The room was very pleasant. In the morning the shower was not working properly - cold water and I found out later the boiler had sprung a small leak. The staff was very apologetic and without any prodding on my part, provided a $50.00 gift card for the hotel restaurant and a free breakfast buffet the following day! Every staff member was helpful, pleasant and there to please the guests. It was a super experience.

Got up early to walk to the Liberty Bell - nothing was open yet but, in my view, the bell was not very impressive - certainly historic, but kind of a disappointment.

Not up to HGI standards - avoid

Room was rather worn, unclean, and bed old - needs updating. Restaurant food mediocre. Parking expensive at $31 per night. Best bet is to stay at Hilton on City Ave for 1st class service/food.

It is a new and nicely done room at 10th floor. I attended a convention. The location is convenient but the neighbours are poor and many beggers bothered me while walking around the hotel. Alos Train to the philadelphia International airport is a great thing. The station is right nxt to it.
