    The staff was very accommodating. The best thing about it is the location, it was close to all the major historic sites. There were a lot of bars and restaurants nearby, but it was very quiet in the hotel. The room was clean and comfortable.

    Parking is provided about a block and a half away under covered city parking. Believe the cost was around $20.00 a day. There is a loading and unloading zone right in front of hotel. Very easy to unload and then park the car. More

    It is only two blocks to Penn's Landing. The rooms with windows face toward South Philly. I don't know of views toward the river, but I would call the hotel to be sure.
