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 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.

Great location

The Windsor Suites was a great hotel for sightseeing and shopping in Philadelphia. It was only a 10 minute walk to the museum district and about the same to some great shopping, a nice spa, and a few restaurants. Taxis were readily available, and most rides were under $10. The staff was very friendly and the continental breakfast was adequate. Toiletries provided were salon quality, and the kitchenette in the room was very handy.

Two nights --- very well-run: slick style, great people, perfect location for Franklin Institute and Barnes Museum. Minor irritation associated with the room temperature controls.

an enjoyable stay

i enjoyed the four day stay i had at the hotel. the kitchenette allowed for me to cook in instead of going out to purchase food at a restaurant. parking was a bit pricey, but it is understandable being that it is in the downtown area of Philadelphia. the staff were very kind and helpful when i needed their assistance, this was my second time staying at the Windsor suites the first time being a one day stay about six years ago, i was pleased then which is the reason that i returned, the location is great as well if you do want to go out on the town to eat, Chinatown is not far away as well as the Philadelphia museum of art and the Franklin institute.

Lovely place

my trip was quite fantastic. Thanks to the Widsor Suite. I hope the check in time policy would change though. I was unable to check in before 3pm.
