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).

Better than expected!

There are some older pictures online, but I ended up getting one of the new renovated rooms. It was very very nice. Ambient lighting, nice furniture, nice layout and provided a very cozy feeling. Didn't want to leave. Plenty of space in the studio and the kitchen had everything needed. Would stay there again! Also the restaurants downstairs are convenient, not too bad, and not overpriced. Good for when you're lazy and hungry!

Great stay

I stayed here over labor day weekend and will consider staying again. The bed was very comfortable and the room was large enough for the three of us.

Great service

Upon arriving at the Windsor, everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. The staff was amazing the entire time I was there. The room was huge with plenty of closet space. The only down side was the parking situation. It's expensive to park at the hotel every day. If you are staying in the downtown area....do not rent a car!

We will return to Windsor Suites!

Location, location, location! Right in Center City, all the museums nearby, walking distance to Eastern States Penitentiary. I have stayed here 3 times over the past 6 years. My original visits were during the renovation and it was a little rough, but the price and the location was right. I was so impressed with the renovation this time. We had a balcony this time and it was wonderful. Excellent! And the convenience of Con Murphy's Irish Pub in the hotel was great for us.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

Not really a long walk....15 minutes to Eastern State Penitentiary, a fascinating attraction. $14 tour price includes self paced recorded tour. This was my 3rd visit to the Penitentiary.

In the heart of Philly

Upgraded our room for free to a balcony suite overlooking the city. Clean room, kitchen with a kuerig. Water pressure in shower was lacking. Overall great stay.

Great GirlyGirl Get-a-Way

I was in Philadelphia for a 3-day get-a-way with two friends and the accommodations were excellent. I look for good value and got it! The room was clean and well appointed, the location was was perfect for walking to everything, and the staff was helpful. I would definitely stay there again.

The Barnes Museum is a city treasure. Breakfast crepes at the Reading Terminal Market were delicious and a fun way to experience the market.

One Night in Philly for Exam

I loved the room setting. I stayed in one of the suites. It took a while before I finally got checked in because no rooms were available ( housekeeping was cleaning up the rooms). However, I loved the night I spent at Windsor. Parking was average.. would hope for better discount next time.
