I stayed here a week on business and had a good rate considering the location downtown. So overall, it was a good value. The room was clean and comfy - slept well and didn't wake up tired. It's located next to shopping as well as great restaurants. It's next to the enormous city hall building and a few miles to...

Good location if you want downtown...they were remodeling their restaurant and didn't tell us they had a temporary setup on the mezzanine for breakfast (we found out after going out for breakfast). The room was big and clean, amenities in the room were average.

Spent just one night at the tail end of a business trip. The location was fantastic for both business and if you are there to see the city. You are a short hop around the corner to Reading Terminal Market, and within walking distance to the Liberty Bell and such. The hotel itself was very classy for a courtyard, with...

This is one of the best locations to be at in the city. Easy to walk everywhere and they just remodeled so it has new features in the rooms and electric plugs by the beds, which is important if you like to have your phone by you.

I stayed here for one night with my husband and two young kids. We opted for the 2 room suite. Check in was quick and painless - and we are given keys to a room on the 4th floor (there was nothing higher ready at the time). The modern suite was spacious, comfortable L-shaped sofa in the living room with...

Everything about our 1 night stay was great. The location is very convenient to the train and ideal to take in all the holiday sights.

It's a great location, right next to the Reading Terminal Market and the hotel is ok. The building is beautiful and they have done a nice job with the remodel. There is a nice little but well outfitted gym and the Starbucks in the lobby is welcome in the morning.

A former city hall annex, the lobby has beautiful architecture. Rooms are big and comfortable. Staff extremely helpful and pleasant. I enjoyed it more than the full-service Marriott where I normally stay. Only downside is limited food/room-service.
