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).

Just okay

The hotel was nice enough to provide free coffee and water bottles. Each room is very spacious and the King size bed is a major plus. There was also silverware and dishware plus a Whole Foods within walking distance. In fact, everything was walking distance. However, the pillows were pretty flat and the hotel fitness center was very dirty. Most of he machines did not function that well. The elevators were very small and slow. There was no option to take the stairs. In addition, the LOUDEST fire alarm I have ever heard went off on Friday night at 4am. It did not stop until 6:15am. I was hoping that in the morning the hotel would give us something in return for such an obnoxious problem. I found out the next day that the fire alarm went off because of an issue with a sprinkler, not a real fire. The front desk had the nerve to blame it on the fire department. The worst part was that the fire alarm was so loud and all it said was that we should remain in our rooms, not use the stairs, and not use the elevators. So basically, no information from the desk and we had to shelter in place? Some people in my hall and I tried to call the front desk, but no one would answer. So, we didn't know what was going on and attempted to sleep, but the alarm was blaring through our ear plugs. Overall, I liked the location of the hotel. I could have done without the street noise, like the garbage trucks that woke us up Monday morning. But hey, we had fun around Phili and it was pretty nice weather... sunny and mild all weekend.

Great location!

Loved the location of this hotel. Walking distance to a lot of things in Philly - art museum, Franklin art institute, city hall, etc. As a bonus for tourists, the Philly bus tour has a stop right on the opposite side of the street from the hotel. You can park once and take public transit for the rest of the trip. Parking is a bit expensive, though. The nicest thing about our hotel was the renovated bathroom. The rest of the room was a bit older. However, it was still comfortable and a decent place to stay. The bar at the bottom of the hotel can get pretty loud, so I'd ask to get a room towards the top of the hotel, rather than above the bar.

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.

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.
