Thank you for your review. We apologize the pool was closed. Hopefully as restrictions continue to be removed, the City will allow us to open it back for use.

Great location.

Cons: Valet service.
If you're taking a bus tour of the city this is a great location as its not far from the stop at the Touch Museum. Velet parking is at the adjacent Hilton and you'll need a Sherpa to ring your way to your hotel. No signs. Room was very nice for the price. Would stay here again.

A+

Pros: Location, amenities, cleanliness, friendly staff.
Cons: The self serve parking requires you to walk from the parking lot to the hotel. For $10 there is a valet, but I'll take $5 parking in Philly any day!
Location: It can be a little tricky to find the entrance on first arrival, nice area though. Target shopping center very close. Several nearby restaurants.
We were in town for a concert at the Mann Center, and this hotel was recommended to me. I'm so glad it was. The location was ideal for traveling to and from the venue, and there was tons of nearby shopping and to pick up anything we needed while we were there. The room had a kitchen with a stove, microwave, full size refrigerator, and even a dishwasher! Since I was preparing to make a fairly large meal in the lot of the Mann I was able to do all my preparations right in the room, which saved me time, energy and waste on the lot. The room was also well maintained with a beautiful view. The entire staff was friendly and kind and made the two days and nights we stayed a real pleasure. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the vicinity.

Comfortable and A Great Value

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
In Phila. for 2 (amateur) photo outings. Didn't need downtown location. A bit awkward to find, but room and service was very satisfactory. Good free breakfast. Needed a little front desk service (missing wastebasket, bathroom sink wouldn't drain, missing flatware.) All corrected within an hour. Kitchen in suite was perfect. View of city skyline. Happy to have found this place.

Great hotel, excellent and friendly service. Parking is a serious issue

Pros: Free breakfast
Cons: parking
Have walk about 50 yards to off premise parking. A real inconvenience. Otherwise hotel is excellent and one of the complimentary full breakfasts around.

A great place to stay.

Would definitely stay again. Staff was friendly and helpful; service was quick. Stayed at the Springhill Suites in Williamsburg, VA in April, and this was a step up in quality. Our room had a full kitchenette w/ 2-burner range, full size fridge, dishwaher, and full set of utensils. Spent less money eating and more having fun. Buffet eating area more like a restaurant than a cafeteria, with better service, and better food. Couldn't use the pool (down the hall in the Hilton next door), as it was under renovation. On the down side, the parking lot is across the street, but we never needed it. Always found a spot on the street near the building.

My family loved it!

A great place for us to stay for our annual family vacation. The staff were super helpful and always said "Welcome Home" when we came through the front doors! They gave us great instructions for riding the local bus to all the tourist attractions. The bed was super soft. We loved having the option to cook in our room, however, they offer a full hot breakfast with protein included (many other chains simply have waffles, muffins and danish. Then we also were offered a dinner meal each night which included beer and wine. This allowed my family to really enjoy Philadelphia and spend more of our money on sightseeing rather than on eating out. The only thing constructive I can say is that the computer room printer was out of ink and they had a Dell so you have to get the ink straight from them and it had been ordered but didn't arrive while we were there (4 days). They offered to printmy boarding passes at the front desk. Also, my son would have liked the pool to have had a "deep" end for jumping into.\nI give it a big thumbs up and would stay there again.
