+Location + The city view on 7th floor + Quiet area - The simple breakfast. One plain bagel or croissant, artificial juice and marmalade, banana or orange and bad coffee. That’s it. Worst breakfast ever. Like a hostel. - Only a thin blanket in the hard bed. Was freezing all night.

The staff was friendly and helpful and our room, while small (standard queen), had everything we needed and was clean. This was a pretty perfect budget option. The parking is in a garage a couple blocks away, but there is a passenger loading/unloading spot outside the hotel.

The room we received after check-in was small and my partner suffers from claustrophobia so after a request from super friendly & helpful Chrisy she provided us with a much nicer room and we enjoyed our two day stay. Maybe we are spoiled by Ultimo cappuccinos & their to-kill-for almond croissants, so we couldn't even eat the gratis breakfast. The place is clean and well maintained. Absolutely value for money in a central location. Note: no shower caps provided.

This was a good location for finding parking within walking distance and a good selection of nearby restaurants. The staff is helpful, morning coffee and croissants in the lobby, good beds and hot water. We were on the third floor and the traffic noise at night was not a bother.

A very nice hotel in Central “Old” Philly. Walking distance to many historical places and near lots of theaters, restaurants and public transport. I had a basic “twin” room which was small, but adequate. The TV was placed on a very high shelf, which I found a bit odd. They had a basic breakfast in the morning, with coffee/tea, fruit and fresh croissants. One thing lacking was a fridge and/or microwave in the room. Even a coffee-maker or kettle would have been welcome. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Price was reasonable for the area.
