We used my hotel points to go away for the night. This hotel is perfect for a weekend away. The location is so close to so many restaurants/bars and shopping but also near the historic sites and parks (such as Independence Hall, City Hall, Rittenhouse Square, etc.) We took the Patco line in from NJ so we saved on parking....

Large city hotels that are not rated 5star and the morning staff just greeted me with a very enthusiastic Good Morning, and the front desk was more than gracious and accommodating. the rooms are clean and well stocked for what I'm paying. I recommend this hotel to everyone.

This was a designated conference hotel for a professional conference I attended Jan 24-27, 2013. It is an older property, nothing fancy. I had a spacious room to myself on the 12th floor. Since I am not a morning person, I especially appreciate that the windows are angled and have full curtain coverage. (I always take sleep masks but didn't...

This is an older property as many downtown hotels are. It is well maintained and doesn't show much of its age. The service was good, the breakfast was above average. My room was clean and comfortable. The only negatives was the heat, it was either on full blast or off, the thermostat was broken. Also, the parking garage is a...

Sorry to hear that the HVAC was such a challenge, and the weather has been quite a suprise for us of late. It's good to hear that good points about your stay as well. Your comments on the garage will be shared with the Patriot Parking garage, and we do appreciate all that you had to say. Thank you.

Ok value for the right price. Stayed a few times. Rooms are older. I guess it was clean enough. Breakfast is basic and ok edible. Free waters upon check in was a nice touch. Right in the heart of Philadelphia's famous "Gayberhood". Easy to get around from this location. For a decent price it could be well worth staying.

I've stayed at this hotel because of the location. The first time I stayed was not great, but I thought I would give it a second try. Everytime my partner and I stayed at this property, the front desk staff were very rude and unattentive. The room itself was nice, breakfast was good and even the hsk and breakfast staff...

I stayed at this hotel for an extended weekend with my husband and a friend to attend a local convention. I chose this hotel because it was the cheapest, and close to the convention center. The hotel itself was not bad, I have no complaints. However, I reserved a room with a king sized bed before I knew my friend...

Nice clean hotel with friendly staff. Located near several restaurants and rooms have great views. Excellent breakfast buffet. Very comfortable beds and very little hallway noise or noise from adjacent rooms. Took me about 20 minutes to get to the airport.
