Style your Philly vacation your way with the apart-hotel at The Windsor Suites Hotel Philadelphia. Continental-style terraces greet you outside, and once you've checked into your own city-facing balcony (selected rooms), views of nearby City Hall are yours to enjoy. There are even extended-stay openings and unfurnished suites if you need a temporary home in the city. The suite-style rooms feature refrigerators, ovens and dishwashers, for those who wish to fix their own meals.  Or guests can dine downstairs at the Irish-style pub, Con Murphy's, for some robust traditional dishes. Those feeling more active can try a few open-air laps in the rooftop pool (seasonal opening).

Great suite hotel near all attractions in Philadelphia

First off, valet parking is at a garage attached to the hotel. You walk right from the garage into the hotel lobby. Hotel porters (VERY friendly) will unload your car and bring your luggage right to your room. Overnight parking is about $34 with tax. Figure that into your hotel cost. Parking elsewhere might be cheaper, but then you'd have to take a cab and your luggage to and from that parking lot to the hotel. One you are comfortable with that expense, you can appreciate that are staying at a lovely suite hotel with a fully equipped kitchen, including a dishwasher. We saved time and money by bringing our food with us and preparing it in the kitchen. I enjoyed a workout in the modest, but well-equipped gym on the lower lobby area. Then I went up to the lovely little swimming pool on the roof. The pool water was sparkling, and everything was clean and neat. The view while swimming or sunning is of enormous glass office towers - pretty impressive. The room was perfectly clean and tidy. Nothing out of place. The beds were comfortable, and four pillows gave one lots of choices for propping up to watch the large screen TV. Rooms all have free WiFi access, and sufficient bandwidth for video streaming to watch a movie on my iPad. I have to say that the whole stay was very pleasant from checkin by the desk clerk to the friendly porter's packing our bags into the car for departure. He even suggested a route to our destination.

Time-saving tip: In Hotel

When you arrive at the hotel in the middle of downtown Philadelphia, you may wonder what to do with your car. At the left of the hotel entrance is the parking garage that connects directly to the lobby. A porter takes your luggage to your room, a valet parks your car. Simple!

Great Location

The Windsor Suites are very comfortable. Refrigerator, stove, microwave, everything you need for a short or long stay. Con Murphy's is a nice place to eat @ drink. It's close to the Suburban station, so you don't have to drag your suitcase too far!
