Nice but Pricey

Nice location across from Reading Terminal Market. Bathrooms, though - low water pressure, leading to me never feeling clean for the 4 days I was there. Check out, concierge and staff worked well, friendly. Room service was good and while expensive, not as overpriced as some. Free internet - which was awesome.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Hit the Reading Terminal Market for snacks, lunches, gifts - much more varied, authentic and cheaper than gift shop or room service.

Busy Center City

The room was clean, comfortable. The exercise room was the best with alot of equipment, free weights and complimentary headphones. The valet parking, although the drivers were wonderful was a zoo!! Very daunting. Also the location is good if you want to be in that area, but if you need to drive away too much congestion.

Cable malfunctioned; fire alarm triggered!

Not happy with my stay. Had to pay for internet; then cable tv malfunctioned for several hours; internet was then given for free. Then fire alarm triggered for 15mins or so with conflicting automated message and hotel securiy message. Started going down the stairs then was asked to go back to my room while they figure out the problem. Not worth the high hotel price.

Issues

The pipes are loud and we experienced a TV outage on NYE for 15 hours, just when we wanted to crash and watch the ball drop. We did get to listen to the very loud water pipes groaning to break up the silence. However it is a clean and overall nice place. It's in a great location and staff were pleasant. Price was right in the package deal. Outage was probably a fluke, I would stay again.

Capital Grille right around the corner, never disappoints. Stay away from Hard Rock right next door. And Circ in the lobby was good too.

great location

close to everything you need in downtown. Internet is not free and connection is REALLY bad, so that should be taken into consideration if u planning to use the net during ur stay there.

Great location

Hate having to pay for wi-fi when already paying a high price for the room -- and only one cup of in-room coffee in a 2-bed room -- seems insulting

Good Lacation

The hotel is centrally located, close to almost everything. ( The Market, where you can eat very affordable food!). I was not impressed by the hotel itself. There is nothing special in the bedroom. But the staff were very polite and professional. Overall, you pay for the location and nothing else. I was there just because my company paid for my stay. I would recommend it just for the location

Eat for less at the Market, just accross the street! Also, you can avoid paying for the Internet ($12, 99) by going at Starbucks on the first floor to check your email (with your personal device- laptop, Ipad, etc.)
