This hotel has good services and is clean. I enjoy staying in the hotel even it is during an storm and snowy day. That ease the stress for emergency stay. The particular is about the hotel offer a free shuttle for guess to a nearby restaurant.

I checked in real late last night, slept late and didn't get to see the breakfast selections this morning but I heard they were good. The room was quite large, comfortable and quiet. Great WIFI also.

overall package, for someone who has never been to Philly or PA. This hotel was down the street from friends that I was visiting and it was perfect. There is a 7-11 right outside your door for drinks and snacks. The breakfast for being complimentary was delish. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. No complaints.

The hotel's decor and design may be considered rather uninspired and utilitarian. However, the staff members have, on each of my visits, been attentive, understanding and sensitive . Each staff member gives me the care and respect and attention that my family members do. Merry Christmas!!!!
