Location and friendly staff. Everyone went above and beyond to make sure our needs were taken care of.The amenities were first class.

There was a reoccurring lock problem causing more than one lock out. This needs to be resolved in the computer system.

The rooms are not overly large, but they are elegant and regal. The hotel's architecture is grand. Wifi in common areas is a plus, but it should probably be included in rooms without extra charge. My view of city hall and the downtown skyline was phenomenal. The center city location is prime and convenient to all the trappings. If you are looking for historic upscale hotel accommodations during your stay...look no further.

Beautiful lobby. You can just see the history when you walk in

We felt judged when we first walked in like we did not belong there by hotel staff

We loved the location. We were right across the street from city hall, just 2 blocks from the Reading terminal market, and a few blocks from Love park.

We did not like how expensive parking was. $48 per night! Valet is the only option and since valet is offsite, you have to notify the front desk 30 min before getting your car.

Breakfast is included, which is really convenient.

We got a huge corner room with an incredible view of city hall. The bed was very comfortable and the decor was also nice. The free business center was quite nice and came in handy, and the buffet breakfast was also a plus.

The only downside to this hotel is the price that you will pay for parking, but that's to be expected when staying right downtown.

Staff professionalism King size bed. Clean room.

People in the room next door were talking loudly until 2 am! The first night I got absolutely no sleep. It required a cab ride to get to my conference at the Conference Center.

Room was large and clean.

Had one party staying one night and one staying three nights. They could not keep it straight and kept deactivating key card of three night room. Valet parking took over 20 minutes to retrieve car when they could not find keys. Hotel is attached to Philadelphia convention center. I would only stay there if attending a convention.

Every single staff member was extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel was in a great location and itcwas a good value.

The room was a little small but that was okay because we were only using it to sleep.

Convenience. It was close to where I was going.

You had to take one elevator to the lobby and then a second to your room, awkward. The room was small, tight, like a clogged dorm.

The coffee machine was sweet :)

The location was amazing with onsite parking for a very reasonable price for a city center. Rooms were a good size and the pool was nice (on 7th floor with nice breeze all the time & pool attendant). Very friendly staff.

Wi-Fi was offered but not readily available for some reason.

This is the premier spot for any sight-seeing in Philadelphia. Central to Logan Square (city hall) and Rittenhouse district (restaurants), a nice walk to the museum district, Independence Hall, Reading Terminal Market, Society Hill and the Waterfront. Easy city driving to Please Touch Museum and zoo. The best hotel for the price, amenities and location - bar none. Would look to stay here first for any future Philly visits.

Great value and location. Hotel is in good shape. Staff was accomodating and friendly. Breakfast was very decent. They also have a parking garage if you are bringing a car.

Rooms need some updating- which they are in the process of doing and they have the new designs displayed on an easel in the lobby- which I thought was a very nice idea.

Prices are either the average per night price per room or first night of stay. You can select to display the prices with or without our estimate of taxes & fees (which may not appear on provider's booking page but will be charged at hotel checkout). Before you complete your reservation, verify the total cost on the provider's site. Prices and availability are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
