Great hotel for our few days in Philadelphia. It was a great location with access to many tourist spots, historical sites and shopping. Rooms were well appointed and looked to be recently refurbished. Worth a visit to the Reading Terminal which is only a block away.

Perhaps it was the rain, but it was probably the most comfortable bed I have slept in away from home. The bed was very comfortable and the thermostat seemed to be very consistent. Not too hot or too cold. The hotel is in a lovely historic building in the middle of downtown, a short walk to just about everything worth... More

Nothing is better than being in the center of Philadelphia when the Christmas market is going on. The hotel lobby is quite elegant, the staff friendly. The rooms are large and quiet, blocking much of the street noise. Plenty of things to do within walking distance. Very nice.

We stayed here while attending a national convention held at the neighboring Philadelphia Convention Center. This hotel is located in a historic building. We stayed on the 9th floor overlooking City Hall. The hotel is in a great location. . .especially if you are attending a convention. Comfortable and clean rooms. Location is perfect!

Conveniently located just a few blocks from the Philadelphia convention center, easy walking distance to nearby restaurants. The building is on the list of historical buildings and has a certain charm to it, and the staff is friendly and accommodating. Rooms are average, but clean.

I am a tough hotel critic. The things I look for in a hotel consists of the 1) the service and 2) the quality of the facility. This place ranks high in both.

Beware that GPS leads you behind the hotel! Hotel itself is nice & clean. No frills ~ no complimentary breakfast or water. However, they do have a small refrigerator and ample space in room with desk & plenty of plugs for your electronics. Showers, no tubs. Conveniently located near TGIF, Chipotle, & CPK as well as a bank.
