Fairly nice hotel. The rooms are older but clean. Breakfast is good. Staff are friendly. Be sure to ask for a room on the water side as the interstate is noisy. There is free water available at the front desk. Wifi is good. Great location for walking to tour the old town.

Stayed one night in a double queen room for a wedding. Found the beds and linens to be comfortable and the room and bathroom clean. Place is nice and in good shape but not upscale. Typical HI Xpress. Breakfast was complimentary and very good. Eggs, bacon, sausage, cereals, rolls, etc. Cinnamon buns are very good. Only negatives: $30 per day...

The rooms was clean and tidy, the staff very friendly. We we're there in December and it was icy cold. The hotel offered us warm drinks on arrival which I thought was a nice gesture. The room had a great view see attached photo. They also had a free shuttle service in a 10 mile radius.

Thank you for this great review, we are very happy you enjoyed your stay and was able to stay out of the icey cold weather. Also, we do have a complimentary shuttle but it only goes within a 2 mile radius not 10 which is a big leap but thank you for the kind words. Have a great day and...

My son and I greatly enjoyed our stay. There were many interesting local shops, eateries and small art galleries within walking distance and neither of us felt unsafe when walking around at night. Being close to the historic landmarks we wanted to visit during the day was a plus. The morning breakfasts were great and the rooms were always clean...

The hotel staff are very friendly which starts your trip off right. We received free bottles water when we came in. There is also hot coffee and tea available 24 hours. The room was neat and clean. Starting at 4pm to 10pm, the hotel has a free shuttle within a 2 mile radius. That meant we were taken to Indepence...

Location, location, location! This property definitely got it right. Had a lovely view of the river and Benjamin Franklin bridge. Not to mention everything is either a couple minutes walk or Uber ride away. Check out Paddy's around the corner (YES, Paddy's from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia)

My wife and I went to Philadelphia for three full days to see the sights. Locating a hotel we liked was challenging. We made reservations and requested a high room facing the river. Many local roadways and a passing train on the bridge made noise, but it wasn't bothersome. Breakfast (free) was excellent everyday with a wide selection of warm...

Hotel is nice. Rooms are clean and fresh. Unfortunately I was not on the "river side" and traffic is noisy. Close to historic district if don't mind walking a bit. Not much for shopping near by at all. Front desk very friendly and helpful. Thought free breakfast just fine. Not just all carbs. Fridge in room but no microwave.

Close to historic district - 5 min.walk (Race and 2nd St.). Nested between Interstate 95 and Franklin bridge, right on Columbus Blv. therefore some traffic buzz present , even at night hours. Rooms quite all right, clean, with basic conveniences.
