Perfect Stay.

This was easily one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at. Stayed in the city for Made in America festival, was in perfect walking distance. Very, very clean hotel. Beautiful balcony overlooking the city. Not a single complaint.

overall good

It's in a building that also has regular appartments. Good location and within walking distance to most of the tourist attractions. The workout room is very small and plane. The two restaruants on the main lobby are good.

OK.....

They informed us at 6pm that they would be shutting off power and water from 11pm to 4am that night for construction in the garage. I had no heat in my room, or hot water the next morning. The front desk staff offered an apology, but that was about it.

Great except for the fire alarms

The hotel is nicely located especially if you want to visit Philadelphia's historic monuments and downtown. The rooms are descent and they include kitchen fridge and utensils. The building is old but in ok condition. The only negative think that occurred during my stay was that the fire alarm was activated twice during the same day (second time being around midnight). I am not sure if this happens regularly but for us was very disturbing. Also don't lean on the complementary wifi service as it was really slow.

Only the location was good.

The location was the main advantage of this hotel. They did not even have towels (or cleaner for the equipment) in their fitness center. People are forced to leave the equipment covered in sweat.

part one of the family trip

We were looking to stay in the downtown area so this was a great spot. Pool is only open until 8:30 pm though, that part was a bummer and there were never towels up there. Staff was good a quick though when we called for tea and a pack n play for the baby.

Had an OK Stay and served it's purpose.

My favorite thing about this Hotel is it's location, everything was within walking distance yet it was a relatively calm location especially for a city. The room included quite a few good features and appliances so it's ready for basically whatever you may need, room service always performed as they should and the reception was kind. However the Hotel seemed to have a problem with the A/C for a whole week (it wouldn't cool) to which I called reception several times until it was finally fixed. The complimentary WiFi Internet was extremely bad, constantly lost connection and very poor speeds. My bath-tub drainage suddenly got clogged during the last day for no reason. Other than that, it was OK.

Too much cooking

Location, cleanliness, friendliness all very good. Room was dated as were appliances in kitchen. Main drawback was smell of food cooking throughout the building. Some of hotel is rented as apartments, so between that and people cooking in rooms, the odor was overpowering.
