Great Hotel at a great location!

Hotel is clean, comfortable and within walking distance of so many sites. You are able to see many of the historic sites beginning right across from the hotel. You catch a tour bus one block down from the hotel and this takes you on a 27 stop tour of Philly. Many great restaurants within walking distance. Estia was a great Greek restaurant we went to. Staff was extremely helpful staff, rooms that were very clean and comfortable. Valet service that was beyond compare!

Great hotel, great location!!!

We loved it here. The location is right in the heart of old city without being an old uncomfortable building. Staff was very helpful and friendly The deal we got on this room could not be beat. The only disappointment was the spa. The whirlpool was way to hot to use and the spa services were unavailable for the most part because they were either closed or did not have trained staff working.

Benjamin's Best is right next door. Great coffee, sandwiches and ice cream. The owner is very friendly and you do not have to wait in a long line for service. This is a great place to grab a quick snak or srink before you head out.

Good price for this 4 star hotel. Obitz should not require a minimum amount of verbage here. Heck, they got my money, a few words should suffice.

Friendly staff, beautiful view

Location can't be beat if you're visiting the old historic bits of Philadelphia, but within a 15 minute walk you can hit the cultural/arts district as well. Good restaurants all around (Amada, Fork - go to Fork's casual cafe for breakfast - and Zahav all within a few blocks. Three of the top restaurants in Philadelphia!) Very friendly, helpful staff, from the doormen/greeters, valets, front desk, et al. Really won us all over. Stayed on the 9th floor, and the room overlooked the park, which was beautiful and green, but also included the waterfront (and a battleship), the CC East skyline, etc. The room was very comfortable - some of the bedding and upholstery looked a bit worn, but otherwise the furnishings were terrific. Not cheap, but found a deal online that brought the price in line with the service and excellent location.

Good restaurants all around (Amada, Fork, and Zahav all within a few blocks). Fork's casual cafe on Market between 3rd and 4th ("Fork Etc.") is a great place for breakfast. Fresh baked brioche rolls every morning to go with nice strong coffee.
