Comfortable, convenient, and we will return

We stayed four days visiting with our daughter who is in college in Philly. Even though there were conventions, an Eagles game, and homecoming for colleges with tons of people checking in, asking questions, and the usual chaos, the staff was always friendly and helpful. The free breakfast was always delicious with plenty of choices. The room was super clean and the view was wonderful. We highly recommend this hotel!!

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

It actually was not a very, very long walk, but attractions weren't just around the block. If the weather is good, the walk is exhilarating and there are tons of good restaurants and places to go!

Great Service

Every time I have stayed here I've gotten great service from a responsive staff. They're always eager to help. On this last trip the hot water didn't work and rather than move me to a similar room on the same floor they gave me a room with a jacuzzi at no extra cost. The hotel is conveniently located and the view of the bridge at night is great.

The rooms were nice with comfortable bed. However, the wheelchair accessible shower left the whole floor wet.

Great Staff

Staff was great. Breakfast was simple but very good. Those breakfast folks worked hard to keep everybody happy. We did not have a car but bus and hotel van got us everywhere we wanted to go. I would not drive to this location. Hotel parking was always full and seemed difficult to find empty spots.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Good food close by. Go to Market Sheet and search. Chart house (on the river) is way overpriced for what they serve and despite what the hotel manager says, you need a reservation to skip the 45 minute wait where they send you downstairs to have overpriced drinks.

Loud people, Kara is rude, everything else was great

There was a problem with other guests being incredibly loud for long periods of time between 10pm and 5am. We had a great view and the shuttle driver was fantastic. The front staff was great except Kara, she was rude.
