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!

Perfect hotel for a business trip

Very helpful staff and a shuttle that takes you to and from the convention center at regular intervals. A decent breakfast gets you on the road faster. I would definitely recommend it!

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.

Overall Nice place to stay

Positives: recently renovated (was a dirty comfort inn previously) so nice and new for the most part. Some things like door frames, etc you can tell wasn't updated. Good value. The breakfast buffet a huge positive for me. The cinnamon rolls were excellent! Negatives: this is subjective but it was right by the Ben franklin bridge and other major highways so you could hear cars go by. I didn't mind it because I am a city guy so I felt right at home. Also parking is $25 but I think any hotel in the area is similar. Overall: very nice stay for the value.
