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.

Those feeling more active can try a few open-air laps in the rooftop pool (seasonal opening).

Excellent value in convenient location

This hotel is located right at the edge of the museum district, steps from the Franklin Institute or the Barnes. For less than the price of a room alone in that area, we also got a full kitchen (a necessity for us on this trip). The room was large, clean, with very comfortable beds and a window that opens. The kitchen could've been a little better equipped (more cooking utensils, cleaning supplies, salt and pepper would've been nice), but overall this was a very good deal and we'd stay there again.

The stay itself was not too bad, though they were doing construction at the time. Was a friendly staff that seemed genuinely interested in my satisfaction with the premises.

great room, solid hotel

I had a very pleasant experience- rooms are very spacious with a separate walk-in closet to hang clothing. Great for a long-term stay! Beware of parking fees, though. It's about $40 for overnight parking. There are much cheaper parking lots to be found within as few blocks of the hotel.

Huge room

The hotel is undergoing renovations right now but nothing that was too inconvenient for us. The valet parking was a little confusing as there was no sign to indicate where to go. We pulled into the self parking and found that is also valet parking. A sign would have been helpful. The gentlemen in the parking garage speak very little English. The front desk people were efficient and pleasant. Our room was 1303. Very clean and very large with a full kitchen, a walk in closet with plenty of room to set up the ironing board, and an interesting faucet setup in the shower. The a/c didn't work but the window opened so we could sleep in a cool room. Our room rate included a full breakfast at Con Murphy which was a cute Irish pub located just inside the main entrance to the hotel. Check out was easy. If we find ourselves in the area again I may consider returning to this hotel.

Great deal for the location

My boyfriend and I came to Philadelphia for the day for an interview, so I booked a hotel with an eye on price and location. I was surprised by how well the Windsor fit the brief. It's right downtown and affordable. The room was large and had a great view, and the staff were very helpful.

Very value oriented. If you want a great place to stay in a great location for your money...this is it....but it is not the RITZ...basically no lobby but I didn't care. Two nice restaurants on site. Great location as I walked EVERYWHERE. Rooms are quite large and comfortable. They put me in the wrong room when I checked in. When I told them that I was in the wrong room type, I was upgraded to a suite,,,THAT IS WHAT CUSTOMER SERVICE is all about!!! Suite was huge and so comfortable. Smiling happy team at front desk. Would stay there again and again.
