It was nicely set in the middle of downtown with easy walking to the subway and to local restaurants.

For the price of the room, the service and stay were mediocre. The area around the hotel is sketchy as well. My main complaint was the checkin. I did arrive a bit early but was rudely turned away without an answer to when my room would be ready. The front desk wanted the name of my partner who was staying in the room with me. I've never been asked for that kind of information before ever in my 30 years of hotel checkins. I felt like we were being profiled for no reason. We were tired and hot from travel and being outside and dressed up to go to a concert nearby and apparently that warranted the poor service we received.

The staff are very friendly. The hotel is old and dirty. In dire need of updating. The shower heads are very low and at 5’8 required me to bend down to get under the shower head. The toilet area is so tiny if you are a medium sized person, good luck. Halls are dirty, dark and need updating. Around the hotel there are many homeless people lying around. The pool is nice and so is the work out area. Breakfast was good.

Still going thru renovations but nothing changed about service

We were amazed at such a beautiful view from the 20th floor, very clean and the staff were very nice

The parking and where it was located didn’t realize it was in the middle of town if I know that I would not of stayed there

It was at a prime location, easily assessable, room and hotel was nice and clean.

Convenient and good area to stay in center city Philadelphia

The great part about this property is that it is close to all the historical sites. Unfortunately, the day we were their they had an elevator malfunction, something you can't plan for. However, this did allow us to see how the staff handled an major inconvenience. The staff was very helpful and worked tirelessly for everyone until full elevator service was restored.

Location, clean room, nice breakfast, Friendly staff

Convenient to Independence Hall and Liberty Bell. Nice property with friendly and helpful staff. Allowed us to check in early.

Great location, good price. Pool nice and clean. Breakfast has lots of chiices

Very good and friendly staff. Would definitely stay again.

For being in the middle of the city the hotel was very nice! Complementary breakfast was great and the staff was friendly.

The hotel was in great walking distance to the Merrian Theater and a good location to other restaurants and sights of interest. It was clean and staff very friendly! Would definitely come back!

The front desk staff was very pleasant and cordial.
