Location to many things I wanted to see. The hotel was nice.

The parking was nice but they are unorganized. You give a ticket and they keep asking what color car what make and model and so on and so on

************nice location****************************************

Liked that there was a tub, but it was rather small. With bathrobes were provided.

Fantastic staff that was very friendly and accommodating. Excellent location to all of the main sites in Philadelphia. Easy parking with in and out privileges.

They didn’t clean a shower before other guest checked in. It was disgusting to see a long black hair stick to the wall while showering.

Very polite staff. The location was in the perfect spot to sight see.

Wonderful staff! Perfect location! Room was great and everything was clean and well-maintained except the bathroom tub.

The rooms were large and the beds were comfortable

Clean friendly staff and great food options breakfast lunch n dinner

Not worth the price - Great location, great outdoor pool, friendly bartender and check-in staff. Room service never answered, no one could help when you needed something. Other than the location and pool NOT WORTH IT!

The pool was nice, could use a bit larger drinks menu and more music options. The room was clean, good size and the fridge was empty which we could put our sodas and juice in. The room had extra what we needed!

I apologize that you experienced an issue with the privately owned and operated parking garage adjacent to the hotel. We recognize that when something goes wrong in the garage that it reflects poorly on the hotel. For your next visit, we are happy to provide a list of nearby self-parking facilities for your convenience. We hope to host you again soon at our Center City hotel!
