One night stay

It was very nice. The service was great and the pool was cool. Although it was crowded, the free breakfast was a delightful treat.

Great Stay

Visited Philadelphia to pick up our daughter who spent the summer interning with Broad Street Ministries. The hotel was a very short walk away with convenient on-site parking, which we were even allowed to use after checking out and spending our last day touring on foot.
