4th of July Anniversary

We visited the Philly area during the 4th of July wknd for our anniversary. The front desk staff was warm and friendly upon arrival. The room was just as the photos online appeared. We were satisfied with the quality of the mattress. The fitness center was above average and equipped with modern equipment. The pool unfortunately was rather small...and crowded. However, we would definitely visit the hotel again, when in the area.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

The hotel charges you to park. It's about 30 blocks from the hotel to the Liberty Bell/Penn's Landing area. Then you have to pay to park down there. A cab costs about $15 one way and the bus is available but takes a long time to get to that area.

Great Location

Close to the University, convient to all. Great for visits to the University, convient from airport via train. Close to downtown shopping and attractions.

Nice stay near the train station

Great staff and location. Walls were a bit thin we could hear everything our neighbors were saying to their kids. Overall would stay again.

Computers don't work well

I was attracted by the promise of an in-house desk computer. It was so slow that it was useless. I got nothing from it.

Reasonably priced and comfortable

This hotel was reasonably priced for an in town hotel. The room was equipped with a computer and internet connection free of charge. Maid service was slow and not particularly thorough.

Nice hotel to stay for my visit

Clean, comfortable, very nice rooms. The staff were all very accommodating and helpful. I particularly enjoyed the easy location near UPENN and the hospitals--everything was within walking distance and very convenient.

Unparalleled location

Great location at the heart of UPenn; just a couple of blocks from Wharton. Hotel staff was very friendly and prompt to help. The restaurant is not up to the hotel standard whatsoever. Choose a different spot to have your meals.
