Great Place - Expensive Parking

$33/night to park. Great place and nice hotel, but price of parking threw me off. See full review

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 Philadelphia Center City location

Very friendly and efficient staff. The hotel is well run and the rooms are huge! If you want to see the heart of Philadelphia this is a great place to stay. Walking distance to many sites. If you want to get on a good tour bus they will pick you up at the hotel and take you to Independence hall and the visitors center. Highly recommended.

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.

Staying in town due to snow.

Only needed a place to sleep at a good price. Good location, but the bed was below expectations.

Pleasant Honeymoon

We visited the Windsor Suites for our Honeymoon and could not have been more pleased. The room was very clean, and besides a small problem with the closet door, it was trouble free. The Front desk was always helpful when we had any questions about where to eat, or what to do in the city, and the two free computers in the lobby for internet were a wonderful help when we wanted to do a quick email check during our otherwise computer-less vacation. The Museum of Art, and the the Historic and shopping districts were within 5-15 blocks of the hotel, so we walked everywhere.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

A really great way to have a good lunch outside is to visit Reading terminal and buy a sandwich, gyro, or salad, and walk it to the park behind Independence Hall to sit on a park bench to enjoy you food.
