Great location, iffy surroundings

The hotel is your standard business class hotel. Nothing special, nothing bad. Check in time was 4pm which I felt was a bit late. The entrance to the hotel is underneath the parking garage which covers the entire street like a large overpass. The result is a sometimes seedy-feeling (but apparently safe) area right around the entrance. There are a couple of shops under the overpass as well. A popular (long-distance) bus pickup is across the street, and one or two homeless people were sitting (harmlessly) along the sidewalk. While we never had a problem or felt unsafe, I wasn't expecting the entrance to feel like it was underground. There was another entrance on an adjacent street, but usually a map wouldn't point you toward that. Otherwise the location is great. Market East and a metro stop on the blue line (Market at 11th) are less than a block away. City Hall is 3 or so blocks west, and the Independence Hall area is 5-6 blocks east. It was a good, central location for exploring.

There's a Wawa across the street from the entrance. Like all Wawa's, there are no-fee ATMs inside.

Great location but room smelled of smoke

The room was neat and clean but it was supposed to be a nonsmoking room and there was a strong smell of smoke especially in the bathroom. When I left the room my clothes definitely smelled. Additionally, the parking is not part of the hotel and is very expense.

Visiting a Friend/ Exploring the City

Great location. right next door to the Reading Terminal Market. The only thing I wasn't happy about was the parking situation. There was an accessible garage, however it was a bit pricey. I think the hotel should offer some type of discounted parking for hotel guests. But I guess its because the garage is privately owned. Anyways the hotel was cool, no major complaints.

Walk to everything

A very nice place right in the middle of everything. Depending on where your meeting room is in the convention center, you can use shortcuts close to the hotel to get there. Room was nice, staff was nice.

Great Time

Early arrival to this hotel for a convention was not an issue. They placed me in a double bed room that I didn't mind having with a choice of bed each of my four night stay. The cleaning person came everyday and respected the "do not disturb sign" the one day I had it out and when it was removed the room was cleaned. I didn't get a chance to eat in the hotel's roof top restaurant, but I heard people in the elevator raving about the stuffed flounder dish. The hotel is directly across the street from a WaWa (which has excellent sandwiches 24hrs a day) as well as the ChinaTown bus station where you can catch a ride back to NYC for $10. The convention center was directly across the street and it was convenient to Downtown Philly's Market Street for all shopping needs in case you forgot toothpaste or something along those lines. The hotel staff was extra friendly, especially with helping me get a cab to the 30th Street Station at 4am for $8. I would gladly stay here again and hopeful take full advantage of their room service and cable television on the 32inch flat screen.

HiltonGardenInn Philadelphia Center City

It was the perfect location to stay at while visiting the Flower show. It was only steps away from dining and the Convention center. Parking was extra but we expected that in a metropolitan area. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The sleep number bed was great. If you've ever wondered what all the fuss was about, you can try them here. The Hotel was clean and housekeeping service was great. We had a Jr. suite[...]. And you are only 5 blocks from the Liberty Bell, if its a nice day for a walk.

For casual dining, the Terminal Market has everything you are looking for. And I mean everything!( Souveniers too) Its a smorgasbord, sure to find something for everyone.
