This hotel was really well located. I had stayed in Philadelphia a few years ago and at the time prices in the area seemed a lot lower. When booking this time around, it seemed all prices had increased a lot and the Rodeway stood out as having good value. It doesn’t have its own car park, but you can park... More

The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the place is clean with modern fixtures. The room had all of the amenities like a coffee maker, refrigerator, and iron. The location is really unbeatable. Well-situated in the Center City area near a great restaurant and bar area. We were there for the Philadelphia Museum of Art and found a bus... More

This was a great hotel for us to stay at. We walked to liberty bell, observation tower, philly food tour and it had a great Indian restaurant across the street. They held our luggage for us after check-out and it cost less than $100 per night. I would definitely stay here again. And the elevator is just about big enough... More

The title of the review sums up this place. If you're looking to stay in the heart of Philadelphia with shops and restaurants nearby, but don't want to pay a high price, this place is for you. Of course it's not going to be luxurious, but it's clean and has all the basics, which is all I needed. The person... More

The hotel is very close to the city center. Lots of shops and restaurants in the nearest neighbourhood. Rooms are small, corridors and lift very tiny but comfortable. I don't know if they serve breakfasts. There are several parking lots around and you just need to show parking ticket to the receptions to get a discount.

Stayed here whilst travelling on a budget and thought it was absolutely fine for the price paid. Good central location - bit confused as to where the parking was initially due to road-works going on, but was directed there by hotel staff Staff were very friendly upon check-in and whenever I dealt with them (when I could find them!)

We booked this hotel for one night for a place to grab some sleep after a flight that landed at 1AM. Checkin was uneventful, and we were able to get to our room quickly. The room was very small as was the bed. It was definitely not a room of luxury, but it had a bed, a TV, a coffee... More

I booked this hotel about 5 weeks in advance after many hours of reading reviews and checking prices for Philadelphia. Upon check-in, we were put in a different type of room than I booked. This room (301) was a double queen when we had booked a one bedroom suite. When I came to speak with Ryan, the person on staff,... More
