Very Disappointed

I stayed at this hotel because I travelled here for a conference. It's very different from the pictures on the website, it's a very old hotel in need up updating. The front of the hotel has stairs leading up to the door, and a ramp on the side that is not directly in front of the hotel, making getting luggage in difficult. The front desk staff is not professional and appears to not know how to do basic things like check guests in, they are flustered, and once they gave me my room keys said nothing else, so I just assumed we were through. The rooms are small and not laid out well, and the beds are old. Mold and mildew in the shower soap dish. My room faced the water reservoir which is a water reclamation area, not attractive to look at. Bad coffee. There were many small brown mice sighted in the conference room, they would run out from the walls and run into the kitchen area.... I expected more for a Hilton and for the rate paid. Choose another hotel.

Very good hotel, but 5 miles out of the city

The Philadelphia Hilton Hotel located at 4200 City Avenue is a good value as long as you don't object to a $20 cab ride back to the city. The staff was gracious and the breakfast buffet was fine. I liked the room, which was very comfortable. Because it's far away from the city, it's quiet.
