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).

An excellent choice

The staff was friendly and cooperative. The location is excellent for walking the city from the Philadelphia Museum of Art to Independence Hall. Good restaurants are nearby, and the hotel is a short ride from the 30th Street Station.

an excellent stay

A great hotel for the money. I was there on business at an adjacent hotel and wanted to save some money, so I chose the Windor Suites. I did not expect the room to be an actual suite with full kitchen, 3 closets (one of which was walk-in), and nice furnishings. The kitchen was a little dated, but considering I wasn't even expecting one, I cannot complain.

a decent place

The overall experience was pretty good. Very good location. Easy access to most of the attractions in Pilly. The only thing was that the noise of the refrigerator was huge and I had to use ear plugs.

Friendly Village

Okay so the location is great, yeah great. Situated on Logan Square across from The church and also the no.7 stop for the tourist hop-on-hop -off bus,next door is 4 Seasons Hotel with another stop(no. 15)on same side of street.With this you can go anywhere, Liberty Bell,Mint,Independence Hall,all that stuff. Or transfer to bus out to sports arenas in south Philly.Around the corner is a WAWA deli and many resturants. So location is great. The rooms are large , clean and quiet.The staff is helpful and friendly and acted like they wanted to be working for us. The price is great with the little kitchen and daily newspaper to start our day. We only stayed 3 nites but they were a joy. We will be back.

Nice hotel-apartment

I visited the hotel during the conference. The room was nice. I got a bill for parking a car while I don't even have a car, but this was removed within a minute.

Good price, excellent location

We were in Philadelphia for a concert at the Mann Center. The location was wonderful and so was the staff. The room was clean and spacious. We did not visit the pool, but I did walk past the fitness center and admired people working out. I highly recommend Windsor Suites.

Very pleasant weekend stay

We visited the hotel for a weekend in August - my wife, myself and our son, with another couple + 1. We enjoyed the location of the hotel, which is in the business district downtown. Very close to the Art museum and also pretty close to the historic district (< 1 mile walk). We also enjoyed the roof-top pool, which sits right below the comcast tower. The staff was very helpful, and the rooms are roomy, clean and very convenient (especially with a toddler running around). With the in-room kitchen, we could have breakfast in the room, which is always very nice. Parking is a bit of an issue (see hint below). Other than that, it was an extremely pleasant experience. Enjoy your stay.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Parking in the hotel is a bit pricy (~$26 per day). We ended up parking in an external garage, to which we found coupons, which made it less than 1/2 the price of the hotel parking. If you plan to go in and out a lot with the car, parking in the hotel is a good idea, but otherwise, you might want to try the several garages around.
