Worst Hotel stay EVER!

The room service food was cold by the time they got it to the room. I would suggest going to the resturant to eat it. Because it was raining, for some reason it kept setting off the fire alarms all night so we didn't sleep much... the first time it was scarry the rest were just annoying. Also test the beds out before you lay down to sleep because the "sleep system" might be broken. We found that out the hard way.

The Ordinary Stay

The Hilton Garden Inn was a great hotel for visiting Philly. The location was great in regards to sight-seeing and food. Directly next to the hotel is Market Reading Terminal and that was a pleasant surprise.

Good value, exceptional staff

Because the hotel was so close to our event, it was a good value. Hotel staff went out of their way on several occasions to make sure we were comfortable.

Location

The location of this hotel is perfect. Can walk anywhere you want and for far away things one can just take the subway. Hotel room was pretty good, and we were happy with it. Gym was very small in case that is an issue. We were there on a Wednesday night and the area was dead. We found a great bar in McGillans.
