Comfortable base for quick work trip

The lobby and public spaces are bright and welcoming. The staff were friendly and my room was comfortable and spacious. Location was ideal for anything I needed to do in the Center City area of town.

Fantastic location

My cousin and I took my mother to Philly for a Concert. Having never been to Philly before, I came upon this hotel through a Website. The Hotel was amazing. The staff was so accommodating from reserving transportation for us and answering any questions we had. We were able to walk to dinner and various shops. The historical sights were only 10 minutes away by taxi. Again, this was a great experience.

Decent, but not likely to return.

Great location. The staff was friendly, and helpful. The room was comfortable, but nothing special. The sink did not drain well. A ceiling light was blown. The shower curtain smelled of mildew. It wasn't a bad experience - but certainly not 4 stars.

Great Location for Walking

The staff was friendly and flexible with check-in time! The room was clean and spacious and we were given an additional roll-away bed for our teenage son. Everything was a short walking distance and public transportation was convenient. Overall an A+

Philadelphia

The hotel was in an excellent area close to restaurants and sightseeing. We did not use our car while in Philly. We did use the hop on and hop off bus for sightseeing. I would recommend it.

Great hotel value in Philly

I needed a good location in Center City while I came out to find an apartment for an upcoming move. Because the usual places I stay were full, I ended up at the Radisson Plaza-Warwick and never regretted it. Great location - just a couple blocks off Rittenhouse Square. Easy access to subway lines. I didn't use a lot of the facilities, but the gym was well above average, the business center was good for what I needed, and the staff were very helpful. All in all - highly recommended.
