This is a new building located in the west side of center city Philadelphia - very convenient location. Loved the facility in general and the room was very nice - only complaint was that while the water at the sink was blazing hot, the shower was just warm.

Brand new property, in excellent condition. The room is very compact, which is a "feature", not a "bug". But I did miss having a refrigerator and microwave. Also, the "closet" had only room for 4-5 hangers. But the staff were very friendly, the bed was very comfortable, the bathroom and its facilities were excellent, the shades were easy to raise and lower, and in general the room was very comfortable. I was on the 9th floor, so noise from the street was minimal. The heating system is a little loud, though I did get used to it.
