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).

Windsor very pleasant

Clean and comfortable. Very roomy room. Large bathroom and large suite with kitchenette. The staff was excellent. Helpful and very friendly and courteous (and dare I say? ...and American-born.) With 2-or-more nights pricing, very nice. Located next to Embassy Suites and Four Seasons where they were likely paying twice as much, Windsor Suites satisfied me. Mace's Crossing Pub just west is intimate and friendly. A Starbucks is east around the corner. Close to Basilica, Free Library and Franklin Institute. Easy walk to Phillie Museum of Art, city center. Good walking city.

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!

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.

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.

Nearly Perfect

I had a nice room on the 12th floor with a balcony. The room had more space than I anticipated. Walk-in closet was nice. Kitchenette came in handy bc most food places closed early. This hotel is perfectly located near septa, shopping, museums, TGIF, and city hall. Rooftop pool was very clean. Probably because it just opened Memorial weekend. Staff greeted me each time I stepped off the elevator. Morning newspaper was a nice touch as well. Only negative was expensive parking (which is easily avoidable if you look one block south). I would stay here again. Visit insomniac cookies on16th. WOW
