HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 29 January 2017 via mobile

Not gonna lie. I love cemeteries. So I was very pleasantly surprised when I looked out the window of my room at this hotel and saw this historic graveyard right behind the hotel. Little did I know that it was pretty much one of the most important and historic cemeteries in the city ... including the final resting place of...

We stayed here in April and loved it! It was clean, nicely appointed with a very friendly staff. We were in walking distance of all the tourist sights and lots of great restaurants. We enjoyed our stay here and would gladly stay there again.

Smack in the heart of the historical district, the Wyndham Philadelphia Historic District hotel is just a few blocks from some of the most famous landmarks from our nation's history. The hotel is well appointed, clean, modern and has an excellent staff. The good news is when you are tired of seeing the old, you will be more than pleased...

Stayed here because whole town was booked this week. I might return on leisure trip if price was right, but I'd hope to find something more modern. Location is great if here to sightsee in old town. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Rooms like like a 90s Days Inn. The carpet looks ancient and dingy. The curtains are stained....

This hotel is well located in the historic area of Philadelphia. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. We were with two of our Granddaughters and had connecting rooms and it worked well for us. The rooms were very basic but we were so busy we were there only to sleep!

Close to Philadelphia's historic sites but disappointing hotel. More like a motel at hotel prices. Hair in the bathroom, stained grout in shower, cheap toiletries, wrinkly sheets, those awful industrial sprayed ceilings in the rooms,--just didn't feel clean, up to date, or pleasant. Very average. So many other nice choices in Phillie.

Staff is really nice; parking is convenient. The location is convenient -- just a couple of blocks from the Bell and some good restaurants. The hotel itself is clean and well maintained but is still older and lacks things such as a fridge in each room and ventilation in the bathroom. Walls are a little thin -- hallway noise and...

This hotel was very nice. The check in process was very smooth. There is a large parking garage right in site that you can pay $37 per day to park in. It is big enough that we never had a problem securing a spot and could come in and out as we chose. The room itself was nice...a little dusty...

“Both Arch and 4th streets are very busy, and we had traffic noise; I suspect a room facing the courtyard may be quieter.”
