I stayed only one night here, but was a great night. I got a room at the 11th floor (1123) very spacious and apparently renewed, because everything looks like new. The view was very nice also. I got a nice surprise when I arrived and saw a plate with fruits and cookies and a letter from the manager thanking me...

inconvenient parking - and charged for it. Overcharged at checkout - luckily I caught it. Curdled cream, noisy heating/cooling. Room was never serviced. Having to use room cards to ride elevator was a hassle.

Stayed at the hotel for a conference in July. Was a a good hotel, rooms appeared newly renovated and housekeeping did a good job with the room. The location was not the best, but that is not a reflection on the hotel. Overall a good hotel.

We stayed at the Hilton while visiting Saint Joseph's University. The restaurant was open late and we had an excellent meal upon check in and the continental breakfast was excellent the next day as well. Hotel security was excellent and the proximity to the university was very convenient. Great facility! We will definitely stay there again!

Very comfortable, clean room with good amenities. Staff allowed me early check in which was really helpful since I was traveling for business. The business center was very useful for a quick work project.

We stayed 5 nights. Long enough to get a feel for the service one can expect here. Staff were accommodating and friendly. The restaurant and bar were very comfortable and provided excellent food and drink. Our room was spacious, clean, sufficiently luxurious. The only thing I would fault them on is that due to the distance between the hotel and...

We really enjoyed our stay. We had several problems because the hotel was busy with special events, however, we rate our experience by how well the problems are handled and the staff went well above what we expected to make things right. The only negative was that the parking lot for the valet service is very far from the hotel,...

This is not the Hotels problem. While I was there a construction site next door started work early in the morning. Again not the hotels fault. Room 501 is next to the elevators, so if your a lite sleeper not the room for you.
