This is a revision of my previous post. Was contacted by the hotel that the charge was incidental and shold reverse itself. Stayed there a week ago and still on the card. Still the cleanliness could have been better.

Hotel was right across from the Liberty Bell and near many good restaurants downtown. They were also dog-friendly. Nothing special about the place, but clean and comfortable.
