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 room, solid hotel

I had a very pleasant experience- rooms are very spacious with a separate walk-in closet to hang clothing. Great for a long-term stay! Beware of parking fees, though. It's about $40 for overnight parking. There are much cheaper parking lots to be found within as few blocks of the hotel.

Great Location

The Windsor Suites are very comfortable. Refrigerator, stove, microwave, everything you need for a short or long stay. Con Murphy's is a nice place to eat @ drink. It's close to the Suburban station, so you don't have to drag your suitcase too far!

Anothe rGood Tiem at the Windsor

I like the WIndsor-I like that it is in Center City without being in the middle of the center city. It is convenient to the Art Museum and parkway sites, good dining, good shopping and more. The price is consistently good, and the rooms are comfortable. I am old fashioned-I like rooms that have a refrigerator and stove without having to ask for them special-sometimes it is nice to stay inside and cook when there is a big project to be done for work. I have stayed here about 6 time, and I have always had a good experience

Sweet Suite

Stayed one night, wish I could have stayed longer! Very clean room, and super nice staff, thy are so helpful! I was bummed that I wasn't told about their shuttle service (it's $10) to go to or from the PHL international airport! Taxis are $30, so even though the shuttle stopped at a couple ther hotels it was a good deal! It was pricey but since I wanted to walk through the city I saved in cab fare so I suppose that makes up for the price. All the rooms have small kitchens by the way! A nice plus to heat some food up or keep god cold. The only downfall was that I didn't ask if there were any food/restaurants around the hotel, I ended up spending $10 on a measly breakfast from their bar/restaurant, and after leaving I noticed a subway across the street! Definitely ask the front desk where there are other places to get food!

A nice hotel

Nice big room that comes with a kitchen, a great bed, nice view and clean. It was reasonably priced and close to most of the museums. Just a nice place to stay. The location was nice especially if you are going to the museums.

A for effort

The vintage feel and character of the property was excellent. The staff was very accomodating, and for this, I give them an A for effort. The downside for me; In three room changes I could notice the "recycling" of older materials/furniture/fixtures y an attempt to, I guess, save money in the updating. BTW, stay away from Con Murphy's. Tried it once, bland food. On the second chance, I decided they needed a new cook. Regardless of what I didn't like, the staff won me over.

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.
