We visited Philadelphia with another couple, and stayed here for 3 nights. I'm not usually overwhelmed by a hotel--you stay there at night(maybe have breakfast). BUT this place was different. First, location is excellent to a number of places to see, like Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, Museum of American Revolution. It is also a stop on the Phlash bus that takes you to a number of other destinations in Philadelphia. Second, and maybe most importantly, the staff made you feel extremely welcome. This was not just a "good morning" type hello, but they actually engaged you, asked how you day was, where are you going today?, have you seen this? type of conversation. I did not meet one person who was not smiling or friendly.
Third, great breakfast. Good way to start your day. Fourth, rooms were just fine, quiet, and comfortable.
Just, an all-around great place to stay.
