Brilliant choice in Center City

We were travelling as a family for a one-night stopover in Philadelphia with a small toddler. The hotel did not have the king bed room we had reserved, so they upgraded us to a suite with a king bed. The room was lovely and clean with new finishings. The bed and pillows were exceptional. The gym facilities were state-of-the-art far beyond the expectational for a hotel gym. Safe and secure attached parking facilities. Fantastic value for money.

Not What's expected for the money

I did not have a Good experience. The booking process was a hassle. The staff is very unprofessional, in a bad mood, the hotel smells old and the rooms aren't clean as try Hey should. I won't visit this hotel again which is a shame due to it's awesome location in the center city area.

This Place Sucks

The staff is very unprofessional, they do not understand decency and professionalism. The rooms are very small and piled up. They are dirty. I wouldn't recommend this place, it was a horrible all around experience.
