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).

Nice short trip

I came to Philadelphia to see a friend's band play. I didn't realize the hotel would be so far from the city center, but other than the location, everything was very nice. The room was pleasant, and the staff were helpful. Would recommend for the price.

Informative and comfortable trip

The majority of the hotel staff I will rate a 5 out of 5 because of their courtesy, overall knowledge and superb customer service. However on our afternon of arrival there was one of the desk personnel that was intentionally vague and withholding with information of activities within the city and the hotel. He seemed by demeanor to be a supervisor or manager. We discovered as guest so many amenities that could have been utilized and enjoyed if only we had been briefed of them upon arrival. If this stance of being conservative in the release of answers to inquiries is in training procedures I suggest that it should be reviewed in preference of superior customer service?

great base for sightseeing

The room was comfortable and spacious. (We have previously stayed, at bargain rates, in some tiny rooms in Philadelphia) It has a great kitchen, with dishes utensils etc, but we didn't use it. There were some tiny flaws such as a burned out light bulb and slow draining sink and tub, but I imagine these would have been remedied had we stayed another night.The lobby was under construction but it didn't bother us. The location is terrific near museums and city enter.

Great location

great location, only valet parking is available (which costs $20+) the rooms were very spacious and comfortable. Very clean as well. The kitchens come stocked with dishes and other necessities if you need to utilize that.
