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).

disappointed

my wife booked this hotel and it was her understanding that the stay came with a continental breakfast (which it didn't.) Also, she understood that there was free parking (which ended up totaling 76$ for two nights!) Oh well, live and learn.

Time-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

This hotel is a good 20 minute walk to any of the historic areas, and it is a walk better concluded before evening or dark.

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.

Good location and price

We enjoyed the location very much and the hotel staff were extremely nice and helpful. The suite was enormous - more than we needed, really - and the "living room" area especially was strangely furnished/arranged. Apparently this building does long-term rentals, and one could imagine this as a simple apartment for a bachelor. It was nice not to feel cramped, and the bathroom and bedroom were comfortable.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

There is a GREAT brunch place a short distance away called Sabrina's and Spencer's Too. An easy walk from the hotel across Logan Circle and up behind the Free Library. Be prepared to wait, it's very popular - but the wait is worth it.

Unbelievable

Beautiful hotel in an ideal location at an unbeatable price. We paid 130 for a room including valet parking to stay in the middle of Philly in an immaculate room with a full kitchen, dishwasher and office. Perfect.

Ideal location

The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. The suite was very comfortable and well equipped. The hotel was a block from a train station with service to the airport and centrally located between the museum row, shopping and historic districts. I would definitely stay at the Windsor Suites again!

under construction

Upon checking into the hotel, we were notified that there would be construction work from 9 am to 4 pm. The work was very loud and we could not stay in our hotel room once it had started. We were supposed to stay 4 nights and only stayed 2. The hotel staff was not helpful at all when we asked to switch rooms away from the construction noise. I'm sure the hotel would have been fine if the construction work hadn't been going on. The hotel was in a prime location and it was clean and comfortable. Just make sure to ask if there is construction work scheduled during your stay.

A Satisfatory Stay

The stay at Windsor Suites was OK-hot spectacular, but nor horrible either. The room was a nice size with a nice view overlooking the Parkway. The service was ordinary-no real greeting from the check-in staff, but that was fine. The bathroom showers took some time to figure out-there were two things that had to be done to get hot water into the shower. Asia on the Parkway is a good restaurant -it was filling, if a little overcooked. and Overall, it was a good experience. Not spectacular, but it was definitely satisfactory.

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.

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.
