Great value!

The Hotel is in a great location! Safe area, lots of sights, restraunts, shops, etc.Take subway to the US Mint/Liberty Bell, etc. Great nearby market, better than Broadway market, all sorts of food to eat or cook! Carraige and buggy rides are a good value.

There is really nice outdoor restraunt right in front of the Comcast center, super close to the hotel. A bit pricey but very beautiful, romantic and unique. No bugs around either!

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.

Windson Philadelphia

The suites are very spacious, bathroom was remodeled, flat screen tv, comfy bed. But still need more done in the room (old wallpaper, more tv channels). there is complimentary internet access, which makes things work great.

Delightful!

We were thrilled to have a complimentary upgrade to a suite that included a full kitchen and a balcony off of the livingroom with an incredible view. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Accommodations were clean and cozy. Continental breakfast that was included was delicious! We can't wait to visit again!

Great Hotel for the price

This hotel really suited our needs. We were only on Philly for an afternoon, taking the train on to Central PA. the hotel is with is walking distance of the train station. it is not close to the Historic district, but a leasure stroll got us there in time to see a few sites before they closed for the day. I liked how the hotel had a full kitchenette in the room and tons of closet space. anyone traveling with a large crowd or children would appreciate this anemity!

Pretty good hotel

First and most importantly, our room was massive. It was really comfortable and the location of the hotel is ideal. My own gripe with the place was their "complimentary wifi". It was intermittent and appallingly slow. We ended up giving up trying to use it and waited to check emails at places like Subway and McDonalds as they were infinitely better. Then again, I guess that's how the hotel pushes people into their 15 bucks "Business wifi". Rip off!

Good Location, Good Room

Nothing out of the ordinary here, just a well-located hotel at a reasonable price. The room was spacious, comfortable and if you were staying for more than a few days, the kitchenette would be an excellent tool to save money. The remote control on my TV didn't work quite right, but the staff was very helpful when I had trouble printing out documents for a presentation in the morning. Overall a positive experience.
