I liked the the hotel was in the heart of all the fun. I don't have any dislikes.

I rented this room under the impression that I would have 2 double beds. The room they had available only had a king size bed. The hotel was unable to accommodate me stating they were completely booked and they didn’t offer any type of refund and or reduced rate

Rooms were old, I had to unplug my light fixture to turn the lights off. Beds too close to the air conditioner and walls were paper thin, I could hear everything the people next door were saying. Beautiful lobby and good food at the hotel bar. Staff was nice and accommodating

Walking distance to Barnes Foundation and Shopping

The hotel is very nice. The concierge Mary was AMAZING and made the trip well worth it. The soda machine on the 17th floor doesn’t work but besides that is was a great time.

The parking prices are very expensive. compared to those in the area.

We were put in a smoking room. Told them it had to be smoke free. After moving room , had problems with

Close to a lot of good places to eat and iconic places to visit in Philly. It was about a mile walk to the Liberty Bell and Art Museum in the opposite direction. The hotel room was clean, but the hallway carpets were dirty and stained. Overall, the staff was friendly.

Forced to pay $50 for parking; also paid $12.00 for wifi that did not work. Television did not work at all.

Hotel is clean, staff friendly. Television signal goes in and out. Television not working. Paid for wifi but did not work

Room keys didnt work. Elevator not working. Staff didnt answer courtesy phone

We only spent one night, everything seemed fine, except for the lobby bathrooms that I had to use after checking out, paper on the floor, one of the toilets was clogged with paper, and both toilets had no toilet paper available.

It was a very nice hotel, the only problems were that the wallpaper was peeling a bit, we had a towel folded and in our bathroom that had stains still on it. But overall a wonderful time
