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 home away from home

I had a very great experience at this hotel I got the one bedroom, two bed suite. the closets were very spacious as well as the room! The room did feel much like a hotel at all it felt more like an apartment which i loved because it gave it a more home like feeling , the hotel is in center city where all the excitement happens, the front desk people weren't super friendly or anything but they all still did a great job.

Only 1 night, but it was excellent!

I only stayed for 1 night, but it was pretty nice, the suite was nicer than most apartments I've lived in, and the balcony had an excellent view, especially at night, and in the morning!

The Fire Alarm Fly in the Ointment

We really would love to give this place more praise for how much we enjoyed it. The location is AWESOME. You can walk to a ton of good restaurants and bars. It is a little far from the main historical sites, but not so far that you can't walk. The rooms are nice suites, good modern little kitchenettes. The TV service was a little lacking, but I wasn't in Philly to watch TV. Staff was kind and capable. At times the garage was pretty backed up, but I thought they handled the situations well to minimize my wait time. The ONLY major problem was the fire alarm that went off at 4AM. And was still going off at 5AM. They threw the FD under the bus saying they wouldn't let them turn it off, but frankly it was clear they didn't know how to work their own system. At one time I barely-English speaking employee came over the intercom and said, "If....emergency....naa.....call.....911, thank you." Are you saying to call 911 or not to call 911? Is there no one who could have spoken that clearly? Given the nearly 75 minutes the alarm was going, was there no manager that could at least explain the situation? My guess is that most guests will never experience this, but I was bothered by how inept they were in handling the situation.

Great place in Philly

We stayed here with our daughters during an east coast trip. The staff were just wonderful. We needed a place to hold our luggage when we arrived early and they took care of us. We asked for late checkout and that was fine as well. The hotel was very comfortable and having a little kitchenette was nice. It would be nice if there was ice on each floor but not that big a deal. The beds were nice and the bathroom was nice and clean. It's close to Logan square and the Phil museum is walkable from here. Book it. You will not regret it.

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!
