I recently stayed at this property for five nights and found my stay to be very accomodating from Bria at the front desk, to each and every staff, including the manager as she greeted guests at breakfast, a nice touch. Close proximity to any away-from-home needs and that wonderful Reading Market. I would highly recommend to Philly Visitors.

The room is spacious and clean, the place is kept in good repair, and the pool is very warm (really too warm, but it was nice to have a pool). The maid barged in on the day we checked in, which was annoying.

Couple with teenage daughter stayed for four nights. Room was small. Hotel was near lots of action and restaurants very central. Probably would not choose this hotel for a family stay as some of the action that it was near was directed more toward adults. There was not lots of breakfast choices. Did not like that there was not an...

Thank you for your candid comments. Being in a center city location does put us in the middle of the local nightlife which is aimed at adults, and during the day there are all the history and culture more directed to a family. We do hope that you have the opportunity to visit the area againa dn we would like...

Very friendly welcoming staff. The room was large and clean. Servicing the room was way too late in the day for me.

This hotel is centrally located, within minutes walk of the major sights in Philly; there is a parking garage next to it and the hotel offers parking space in that garage.
