Booked for a wedding stay. Called a few days before for specific directions. Difficult to access the entrance when coming from Philadelphia. Person who helped me on phone was extremely nice and helpful. Explained that we were traveling from Reading , PA and we needed to change clothes in preparation for a 4:00 wedding on Friday, April 7. She verbally guaranteed me that our room would be ready and I should call the hotel when we left home to make sure we were indeed on our way. Called when we left, got to the hotel around 12:30. No room, checked back after lunch, no room, waited in the lobby constantly checking. Room was not ready until 3:00. How disappointing for all of us then have to get ready for the 4:00 wedding when we were told the rooms would be ready when we arrived!!!!! Staff on desk were less than friendly by the way!!!!!!!!
This hotel is very comfortable great location in access to a large strip mall very nice view and a nice swimming area I don't think there's anymore to ask for from a hotel No complaints at all
Comfortable Stayed overnight
Bathroom was very nice and clean. The entry halls and elevator were filthy.
We had a room with two double beds and it was quite large compared to other places we have stayed in the past. Not fancy, but good value for the money. Not enough places to plug in a laptop or phone charger. The chair at the table was partly broken and very wobbly.
Breakfast was pretty good, variety of pastries and waffle maker. Not far from Philly. Neighboorhood seemed safe. Nice pool, large bathtub in room. Clean. Nothing really. Only thing I can think of is at breakfast the fruit was a little old looking.
I LOVED being able to get seltzer water in the lobby 24/7 and I loved the coffee machine in the lobby, too! The computer workspaces in the lobby were also very, very helpful. It didn't have a lot of silly extras -- the rooms were spare but completely adequate. The maids actually left the towels alone if they were hanging (so they weren't laundered needlessly). My husband complained that the bathroom was so cramped and that he had to hold the toilet seat up when he wanted to pee. The fridge was in a cabinet which wasn't installed so well so it was tricky to close.
Rooms were very clean like the coffee set up for the guest and especially the water. Employees very pleasant and accommodating N/A
Location is great rooms are small
. Staff . Convenient Location to Restaurants & Shopping . Nicely laid out rooms . Warm inviting lobby area . Parking Endorsement (Parkway Parking Garage) . Filtered Water on each floor . Free Wifi . Limited assortment of Pillows (one size does not fit all) . Bathroom baseboards should have been cleaner (left a mix impression- even though rest of room was fine)
Comfortable bed, good sized room, great location, great room service. The fire alarm kept going off throughout the night and we didn't have any hot water and could not shower in the morning.
Location The staff is poor when it comes to taking care of customers. Will never stay there again.
It was a very comfortable and clean room. Probably taller than it was long but unless you're bringing a pop-up trailer with you there's plenty of room. The bed's comfy and the shower is really nice. They had a hair dryer to use. There's no fridge but that's not a huge deal. I would have liked to have a safe since it is a city, but it's not in a rough area. Some people complained about the two elevators, which is a bit odd but not so much so that you should be like the one guy I passed who was trying to figure out how to get out of the lobby (I mean he got in there in the first place, somehow). There's a big mall with a food court right across the street and all manner of fast food in the block between 15th-16th not to mention most everything you'd want to see or do is basically walking distance (under 1-1/2 miles - South Philly/Italian Market, Liberty Bell/Independence Hall, Eastern State, City Hall, Chinatown). I'd really recommend the hotel, and that you do walk places, don't take the tourist bus, you'll see a lot you wouldn't otherwise. Someone else complained about the parking, I had no issues, it's a city, you pay to park, and it's not like you're walking more than half a block (it is literally across the street). WiFi speed: 18-20MBps was what I got. The staff while extremely polite were not really the most helpful, everything was "It's not my call" when it came to business. I had to jump through a bunch of hoops just to get my stay extended, and they had me put down $50 per night for incidentals (would've been $150 if I'd used cash). There's no mini-bar and I wasn't planning on ordering room service, so this made no sense to me.
The room was never cleaned and we spent 3 nights until I complained to the manager. One of the elevators was broken all weekend which left a single elevator for all the guests and staff. The lines for the only working elevator were very long sometimes taking 20 to 30 minutes to be able to return to your room. Very disappointed. I asked fir an adjustment to our bill or some accommodation however nothing was done. We will not return.
The room was a little dusty and the bedding looks worn. I found hair on the desk which was a little off putting. Otherwise the room was fair for the price and location.
Excellent location. Nice lounge/lobby. We were not given the room we paid for. Instead we were placed in a room with one bed and our son had to sleep on a cot. They refused to adjust our charges. The next night we received a room with a sofa bed, but it had old sheets on it.
Great staff. The listing mentioned free parking. It was not- only 35% off
I liked how cozy our room was. The snacks provided in the lobby were delicious! The location was amazing. We were able to walk everywhere, which had been our goal. Overall, excellent hotel! I wish the bathrooms were a bit bigger.
The room was very clean and our stay was pleasant. The hotel is the place to stay if attending an event at the civic center.
Too big if anything. 8 minutes to get to/from room
Great location, beautiful pool (with very accommodating hours) and clean & comfortable room. Very friendly, helpful staff.
Sizable room with modern amenities with a very comfortable bed and pillows. Friendly, helpful staff. Great workout room. Convenient central location. Large, sociable bar and lounge area. There was a stain on my sheets; could tell that it was something that had been washed/dried into place, but still a little disappointing for a hotel chain of this quality. I was given a room accessible for persons with disabilities, which I was fine with, but was not asked by the check-in staff first. The only downside to the accessible room was that the doorless, tubless shower got water all over the bathroom floor and soaked the bathmat regardless of how I adjusted the shower-head. Really, these are just minor inconveniences from an otherwise great hotel. Would definitely come back.
Central location, clean rooms, many hotel amenities, ease of check in and check out, responsive stadd. Room too small. Was told I would get two Queen beds and larger room and did not receive. Terrible view of construction site.
Clean, quiet, location No hot tub in the pool area
The hotel does not offer Reward points when I book through Kayak
The hotel was very clean and cosy. The food was great as well. I highly recommend 13 Restaurant for breakfast and lunch. We asked for a room with two beds; one bed for me and my wife, and the other for our son. However, when we arrived, I was told that only single-bed rooms were available, so I had to order a bed for our son. Though, after two hours and three calls to the front desk, it never came and the three of us had to sleep in one bed together. Additionally, I didn't appreciate having to call downstairs and wait half an hour for a shower cap. Those should definitely come included with the room.
We could walk to everything we wanted to do. It was NFL Draft and Penn Relays weekend so the room wasn't cheap - we wanted to stay 3 nights but could only afford 2.
Location is good. Beds not comfortable at all. Internet didn't work, unacceptable considering there is a extra charge Keep a bottle of water in the room!!
Staff was excellent. Location great for location to market and historic visit to Philadelphia.
Hot apple cider in the lobby was a nice touch. Complimentary Wi-Fi not included?! Considering the room rates, I found this outrageous. Felt like a 3rd world country.
Racist white staff.
Luxurious rooms, great location, right next to Rittenhouse Square. Parc restaurant around the corner is amazing. Hotel was late getting my room ready. Tried to check in at 3, was told a room would be ready in half an hour. They never called to say it was ready, but when I went back to the desk at 5, they had plenty of rooms. Also, asked about complimentary airport shuttle and was told there was one every 30 minutes. Shuttle was on time, but the driver insisted it was not complimentary, charging me $10 when I got to the airport. Didn't have time to argue, but front desk should have been clear when I asked about a "complimentary" shuttle.
Huge room, comfortable bed This hotel is unsusuccessfully trying to be a luxury hotel, which it does look like. Looks aren't everything though. The way you're treated by the staff is most important in a luxury hotel. This where the Warwick falls flat on its face. The "doormen" never acknowledged us going in or out. When the bellman showed us to our room, we asked where the ice machine was, instead of filling our ice bucket, he showed us where we could get our own ice--pretty classy guy. Now for the maid service: When we showered the first morning, there ware only two hand towels, one of which we had to use as a bath mat. My husband asked one of the maids on our floor for a couple more hand towels. Her reply was that she had none! We had to call housekeeping to ask for extra hand towels and a bath mat. When our room was done that morning, we got a bath mat, but no hand towels. They also failed to replace our coffe, coffee cups and drinking glasses. We were givien an hour extension for check out, but our maid knocked on our door three times to ask when we were checking out. All three times she knocked on the door were before noon! If Radison wants to run this hotel as a high-end hotel, they need to actually train there entire staff how to serve their guests.
Fitness facility is great. Some rooms are in need of a little tlc.
Fully recommend this hotel
Fitness center was nice and the room was clean. No rooms available at 3:00 check in. The desk clerk said he would call when a room is ready but he never called. The maid was the nicest hotel employee. The staff said they have self parking but that is not true, it is just side door valet parking.
The location is great, and overall the hotel Is attractive and well maintained. Most of the staff are excellent, from the front desk to the cleaning staff. They were helpful and courteous. Relative to similar hotels in the area, it's a great value. This stay (our 4th, but first since it's no longer a radisson) we encountered a MAJOR problem at 4am, and with two young children to be displayed in the middle of the night without our belongings was awful. The night staff and cleaning staff were great but the manager on duty was unbelievably awful, as if we inconvenienced her when her shift started at 8 -- 4 hours after we started dealing with the issue. Instead of commiserating with awful circumstances and asking how we could be helped to be comforble, she mostly left us to or own devices to figure out clothing, food, and basics for two little children who'd been up all night, and had to be pressured to provide basic information about a plan for us to be able to leave. Unreal.
Very convenient location. Clean room. Good fitness center. Several other parking options less than a block away for less $ than hotel parking. The front desk staff were not very helpful upon check in and volunteered no information at all. Hotel has no in house lobby bar.
King sized bed. Way over priced, took forever to get water sent up to our room, parking is expensive too...
Clean, friendly Expensive, not as many amenities as other hotels up the street
Location A little dated and the front desk is a little all over place
The hotel has a very nicely decorated interior and decent-sized rooms, especially for the location. Arrived at 3:30 pm and was told that my room was not ready. Had to walk around town for a while until I received their call that my room was ready, which I got at around 5:45 pm. I was only staying one night and I feel slightly ripped off as I was not able to relax and shower before an event I had at 6:30 pm.
Perfect location! Right in the heart of historic Philadelphia with plenty to do within walking distance! Staff was helpful with everything requested Bathroom was not very clean. Used q tips in the room. The coffee was not restocked.
Not really good for young toddlers comfortable bedrooms. Needs updated decor and carpets definitely need a good deep clean. Better attention to details such as restocking coffee and cups complete with lids. Likewise bathroom products. Staff polite but on a rush to get through whether finished or not. When asked by telephone about airport shuttle was told none upon arrival at hotel found they do have services
Comfortable bed. Bottled water in the room. Right in the middle of old town Breakfast buffet was so so.
Great old city location. AC unit is loud; bathroom could use a thorough cleaning -- dust and hair accumulated in corners. Tub did not drain; ankle deep by the end of the shower.
From the minute we walked in, the front desk staff was helpful, gracious, and went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. Danielle was a star! She made sure that we were well taken care of after our long day of travelling. She even directed us to the best Philly Cheesesteaks in town! Hotel room was great. Location was perfect. I would definitely recommend this hotel!
Everything was walking distAnce. Easy access to many places. ❤
Location was perfect for walking to lots of great historic and shopping/neighborhood browsing. Parking a bit expensive ($36/day) but it's a city, so it was expected. The staff was VERY helpful and friendly, got us right in even though we showed up a few hours before check-in time, answered all questions, and gave some great recommendations. Overall, a terrific experience and I would highly recommend!
Great location and pleasant staff. Guests in the next room hosted a party until 5:30am. Several calls were made to the front desk, but the party continued throughout the night. I got the impression this is normal behavior at this particular hotel. Wouldn't recommend to others traveling for business.
Location Dirt in corner of bathroom, pool area unkept,
We had never been to Philadelphia and had no idea what expect. This hotel was elegent, clean and updated! At check in they gave us a piece of paper that had all surrounding restaurants and attractions all seperated by types of food or establishments. Then as an added bonus, the kind, helpful staff member at check in even put stars next to the best places to go to with kids. To make things more convenient the 1st morning we were there we were able to schedule a bus tour of Philadelphia right in the hotel lobby. This worked out great for us becsuse we only had one full day there and wanted to see as much as we could. So all this is great, but the best part is the LOCATION!! With in the hour that we arrived we deciedd to walk to get none other than a cheese steak. We walked the direction to Jims (which was suggested by the hotel staff and happens to be the best philly steak in town) and with in 2 blocks of the hotel the street transformed to a bustling city to a picturesque scene of 1700 brick houses, with trees canopying the the cobble stone streets. I walked to Starbucks in the morning from the hotel and walked right by where Benjamin Franklin had been buried and didn't even know it! The parking garage is not connected to the hotel and if there is valet, we never saw it. There is a parking garage on the premises, but no entry directly inside the hotel to and from the garage.
Room was ok....nothing special Very bland decor....bathroom wasn't great. One of the towels had a huge hair ball on it. Maid took the TV remote from the room
Great location in walking distance to historical sites. Super friendly front desk staff. Room was not ready at 5:00 pm. They did take half off parking to compensate a little.
It's clean, the rooms are really nice, and it's in a great location. I have no complaints. This place was awesome.
The bedding is super comfy and the overall look is modern and very pleasing. Great staff. The room was a tad too small for me.
Good size rooms
Great location & value. The staff was EXCELLENT! It was very noisy. Kids screaming and running down the hall all day/night. Not the hotels fault, but did put a damper on the trip. Also, the room service food was awful. Poor quality and flavor.
Construction at an adjacent building seemed to go on all night long. Unable to have any silence or sleep. And then there was a taxi "horn-honking" demonstration in opposition to Uber. Worst hotel experience of my life.
The staff was friendly, respectful and professional.
Noisy and crowded they day we were there a plain clean serviceable hotel Two things. Our room was between two college kid rooms with multiple tennants. They were polite but busy Other was we went to happy hour and the price was not honored
the view and the room was lovely, the hotel is close to the city hall and to the museums. Bar on the first floor is good. The pool was not very clean (passable) and people had to ask several times for towels. The pool area can be a great place - just add some plants, get rid of ugly fence, put a bar there....
Great location to tourist sites. Rooms are moderdon, clean, spacious. Room are not very sound proof.
I love the nicely decorated rooms and modern feel. Great location. Rooms not quietly. Could hear all traffic from the street and noise from other rooms and I was on the 9th floor. Would like to see Sonesta to replace those thin windows with something better.
Beautiful boutique rooms N/A
clean, nice staff, secured parking, spacious rooms, microwaves in room, no smoking, comfortable bed and sheets Daily parking was over $40/night
Te walls are paper thin. You can hear what everyone is doing around you.
Location is perfect for shopping and eating. Room was quiet, clean and comfortable. Staff were warm, welcoming and helpful. Loved the slippers, thick towels and soft sheets. Lanvin bath products - wow! Nothing. I would easily stay here again if I can find a good rate.
The staff was the best part. They went above and beyond to make my stay the best it could be. I wish the breakfast was included during the week. Needing to order breakfast in the morning is very time consuming.
The Sofitel in Philadelphia is in a great location. It has beautifully appointed rooms, and the staff are gracious and warm. Typically, I feel very comfortable in any room I stay in. However this time, the air conditioner didn't work properly, and the shower didn't drain properly. It did dampen my enjoyment of the hotel.
They found and provided a mailing tube for us so that we could pack a poster and didn't have to mail it home. I little pricier than I would have liked.
Everyone was friendly, my room was rather large and I enjoyed the ambience. My room was mainly clean but I felt like certain surfaces needed another wipe.
There were many stains on mattresses, Knicks on walls and doors, bedside glasses were not cleaned/replaced each day, gym was filthy with sweat stains on machines and equipment and floor. This hotel is desperately in need of an upgrade/remodel
Excellent location. Great bed. Gym was good
Love the hotel and the location. The bar was nice and the French fries late night were amazing. Met an old friend in Philly for one evening. We had a great day in the city, a wonderful dinner and retired to the room at eight PM to get reacquainted. At 10:15 we had a hotel staff member knock on our door to tell us we had noise complaints and to keep it down!!! There was also a note under our door say pleas keep it down the walls are very thin!!! Really??? 10:15??? And they want Philly to be known for the city of LOVE but only if you whisper! Disappointed the staff actually came up to tell me that. I will not be staying there again if I am doing anything but sleeping!
Had a prepaid reservation for Sofitel and arrived a day late due to a family emergency. I did not have time to call the previous day and when I arrived the manager said they had cancelled my reservation, charged me for one day and that he 'would help me find another hotel.' Pathetic, at least could have called me before they cancelled my reservation. Never stay at the Philadelphia Sofitel again.
The whole staff is professional and friendly. When they say hello,good morning or ask how your stay is going, it's all sincere. It doesn't sound like a chore or they're just doing their job, they really care!
The staff and service were impeccable.
Front desk was very accommodating upgraded us to deluxe king room upon check in Concierge not very helpful. Asked twice for recommendations on transportation and wanted to push private car which was theost expensive option vs any other public transportation which we opted for.
Location was prefect for walking around town to all the sites
Very friendly staff. Great view of the city from my room. Walls are thin, and you could here the neighboring room to well.
The staff and hotel were wonderful. They ran out of cucumber water, but we did drink a lot of it.
My friend and I stayed for only 1 evening to see a concert at the Electric Factory.
Excellent location, exceptional staff, great restaurant and bar. Nice room and a comfortable bed as well as a pretty good WiFi connection (best I have experience in a while at a hotel). Walls were a little thin. We could hear people in the hall coming and going as if they were almost in the room.
The room was very comfortable and yet stylish. The location is absolutely perfect. The highlight of our stay was the incredibly attentive and friendly staff. We highly recommend staying at Loews Philadelphia Hotel!
Location & room were great Air conditioning was bad, after repair it was barely adecuate
Robes, shower was nice , room was quiet. 4 large men given a king bed and a roll away .... We didn't fit in beds comfortably, one ended up sleeping on the floor. Valet parking took a long time and left all 4 windows down in my car.
Great location; in the heart of Center City Philadelphia. Expensive parking.
The staff was gracious and helpful Dust covered the room and the toilet had cardboard trash in it upon arrival. Staff took care of the problem after being notified. The cost for parking at $45.00 a night was ridiculous.
The valets were very friendly, helpful and accomadating. Room was clean and the tv had a great HD picture. Check in staff ignored me while I stood there staring at them waiting to check in because they were on the phone. As soon as they were done some jerk jumped the line because he wanted to talk to a manager and they catered to him for another 5 mins before helping anyone else. Room smelled like stale cigarettes and the bathroom sink wouldn't drain.
Location Iron had black stuff coming out of it... the tub water didn't go down it took awhile for it to go down. They over booked the hotel so I didn't get the room I paid for.. I paid for a king and I got two doubles but it would have been fine if they are normal beds they were twin beds... uncormfortable for two people to lay down so we had to sleep in two separate beds smh..
Hello, I'm writing here because I'm very disappointed. When I booked the hotel on Kayan it said that there was a working swimming pool. There was not! I booked this hotel because there was a swimming pool since I need to swim for health issues. I'd like to get fully reimbursed for this stay. Looking forward to hear back from you. Thanks, Giorgio Arcelli Fontana
This was a very convenient location to downtown Philadelphia. The front desk staff were very pleasant. The room was adequate. The bathroom was clean. The water pressure and temperature in the shower were perfect. In the morning, I went downstairs to get coffee and mentioned that the coffee pot in my room did not work. The woman behind the counter made a note of my room # and gave me free coffee. I was pleasantly surprised. The valet staff was friendly, courteous, and efficient. The check-in process took way too long. When I got there, there was a line of about 20 people and only one person at the desk. I came back 45 minutes later. There were about 25 people on line but they finally added additional staff at the desk. The carpet in the room was dated and wrinkled in places -- creating a tripping hazard. The coffee pot did not work. The outlet in the bathroom did not work. We checked our luggage the last day to enjoy a few more hours in Philly, and the bell hop was grumpy.
Nothing Requested 1pm check out. Confirmed late check out on arrival. House keeping came in my room at 9am. I yelled at her for waking me up early. She left and at 10 the manager called the room to apologize. That's great but she woke me up again. I think she is mentally challenged or has zero clue about anything related to common sense
no free WIFI No breakfast No minibar no free parking for the guests
Hotel is in convenient location and staff is friendly. Furniture and rug in room were stained and unclean. Housekeeping did their part to clean the room, but the stains were unsightly. Not sure how they can let people stay in rooms like this.
My friends in another identical room had a rate that was half of mine and was booked directly through the hotel. The hotel couldn't honor the rate for me because I booked through kayak.com. Very disappointing, kayak is supposed to find me the best rate and not make things more difficult.
Close to Art Museum and good restaurants. My wife and I prepaid for a king room and upon check-in (at 4pm) was told no kings were left and they only had doubles remaining. The woman checking me in was not apologetic or particularly concerned (and made no offer to rectify the situation) that I wasn't getting what I paid for and had a take it or leave it attitude. There were 15 people in line behind me, so I chose not to protest and accepted the room offered me.
It all started with our arrival and meeting Anton Ford at the front desk. Anton's the best.......friendly, funny, informative. Our trip to Philadelphia was awesome because the people were fantastic......no matter what we did or where we went. And Anton really got our trip off to a fantastic start. Thank you Anton!
Location and friendly and accommodating staff. Carpet needs to be replaced.
The location and being able to park at the hotel. Also like that they have a pool.The The pool was shut for maintenance. No free Wifi. Parking was expensive.
Staff quickly changed our room as we were originally put into one with no working drawers Small bathroom, rooms need refurbishing , pool as well. Not the standard expected from a Sheraton
The manager took great care of us after she was told about our disappointments. She was wonderful and made our second night much better than the first. Most of the other staff were very friendly and accommodating. The facility is extremely old along with the heating/air conditioning units. Our sheets had a hole in them. Had disappointment with 2 staff members who were a bit rude. Felt the crowd that hung out in the hotel bar and/or were staying at the hotel were a bit trashy. For the price per night, we could stay at the Sofitel or Four Seasons and get better accommodations.
Awesome building champagne at checkin have had many enjoyable and memorable stays. Understaffed, poor service sub par to other Ritz hotels. We were provided with wrong room on arrival. Room was somewhat dated and curtains had large weird stains on them. Carpet in room was also stained making it feel dirty. Restaurant service was horrible / waited 40 mins for a table then waited another 15 mins to get acknowledged by staff. Used express checkout, left some negative comments and asked for emailed updated portfolio via email - never received. I've had better service and value for money in other not so "refined" hotels.
The hotel and staff were extraordinary. i was always greeted upon leaving and entering the hotel. Oftentimes the bellman or concierge would ask if I needed anything. I must have looked a bit lost!!! The situation detailed below needs to be addressed because other than that, the room was most comfortable with a lovely view of City Hall northward Amanda in housekeeping was excellent in refreshing my room and being extra certain there was no detail that was omitted There wasn't anything "I didn't like!" However, The only "hiccup" I experienced was a slight odor of tobacco in. my room at the end of each day. When I notified the front desk they were quick to put a plan in place to remedy the problem. Unfortunately, the odor continued and was probably a function of the odor of the carpet, drapery and bedding.
The staff was incredibly friendly and very knowledgeable of the city. We had a great experience! They must have given our room away before we checked in. Our group of 3 friends got one king bed so we had to use a roll-away cot, which wasn't the most comfortable thing.
Beautiful spa and facilities The restaurant closes too early.
It was comfortable and quiet. The staff was well trained and gracious. It was well located for me.
the service was excellent with attention to detail.
Very accommodating staff, large room, great location. Well appointed. The air conditioner shuddered loudly each time it turned off.
Wonderful service, beautiful hotel. The beds and linens are very comfortable, as are the bath robes they lay out for you. We were celebrating a birthday and the extra touches were very much appreciated. The rooms can use a bit of updating, but all in all it was an excellent experience and will likely return again next year for another birthday celebration!
Exceptional service that is sincere and not cloying. Staff is excellent, rooms are large and the bed is incredibly comfortable. My favorite hotel in Philadelphia. I wouldn't stay anywhere else. The spa is also spectacular. They are dog friendly yet you can't tell if dogs are really there. The rooms are solidly built and I am sensitive to dogs barking. No dogs barking here! The hallways and elevators are immaculate. This is just a wonderful hotel. The closest to European luxury with space.
room and atmosphere were gorgeous. staff very professional.
We planned a quick last minute evening in the city and booked the hotel on a whim due to its location and proximity to our favorite part of town. In terms of location, this place can't be beat. You're within walking distance of what seems like hundreds of fantastic restaurants and highlife hotspots. The hotel staff is courteous and made us feel instantly welcomed and at home. My only criticism is that the room was a bit dated. It needs renovated. The shower definitely seen better days and looks like it was last done in the early 90s. The bed was very comfortable and we slept pretty good.
The hotel rooms were luxurious and left no stone unturned as far as comfort and cleanliness. They thought of everything even as far as robes, slippers, newspapers, umbrella.
We love the staff as they are professional and fun. They offer free happy hour and coffee in am! This is a big deal and makes people feel welcomed. The rooms are stylish and cozy! We had a 2 month and 14 month old children who loved it too! Smaller elevators but it was doable...we just have 2 kids and a huge stroller ;)
I left an expensive piece of technology in the room and when I returned a couple hours later, the staff said they didn't find it.
Love atmosphere and staff. Location and style is also a plus. It's friendly for us with our 2 kids under 2. The bed was not as comfortable. We usually have a king size bed but opted to 2 queen size and I would prob not do that again.
Very stylish hotel with comfortable rooms. Staff was friendly and attentive. But the best part is the location, you're across the street from the birthplace of our nation!
As with all Kimpton Hotels, the decor is amazing & very much in-line with my aesthetic. We also really enjoyed the location of the hotel; we stayed over 2 very nice days & walked 30 minutes down Passyunk and over to the far edge of Rittenhouse multiple times. We tend to spend most of our time out-and-about, but the time spent in the hotel was very nice. We requested a room away from the elevator, which they did not oblige. We were essentially directly next to the elevator bank, however it ended up being quite. That said, we were there on a Monday night, I'm sure the weekends are a bit rowdier. Bed was not very comfortable (for me, the BF loved it), the outlets stopped working in the bathroom in the middle of my blow out & could not be fixed, the internet did not work the day we checked in. Also...there is not much follow-through from the staff; we had requested a later check-out that they never acknowledged until we were physically there and brought it up ourselves again during check-in. We asked for a room away from the elevator bank, but were put in one directly next to it. Tried to order room service & the person on the phone said they would have to call back to 'confirm the order' but never called back..the food appeared 20 minutes later, cold. Negatives aren't the end of the world, but there are definitely some things we weren't thrilled with. But the staff, including the valet, were lovely & very friendly.
Stayed for NYE.. very nice hotel. Excellent staff. A bit pricey. Would consider a return trip.
Nice location for nightlife and history tours. I receive a monthly check from the VA for a service connected disability -- my ONE night stay cost more than that entire check! And for what? I received no continental breakfast; parking is $50 a NIGHT; and my room with a king-sized bed was tiny. No idea if internet was included, as I was not given a password. I wanted to sit in my room and prepare for a speech I had to give, but, my absurdly expensive room did not come with a chair besides an ergonomically nightmarish desk chair. I had a ton of clothes because I was there for a three day wedding, so my hands were full. I received no bell-service, carried all my stuff to my room, and the keys didn't work; so I had to lug everything back to the front desk. Had to iron shirts for the wedding, the ironing board looked like it was bought from a yard sale. For the cost of this room, I expect quality amenities. Also, the bouncer for the rooftop bar, who looked a like a teenager, watched one of the wedding guests get assaulted, laughed, and did nothing. Honestly, we should've called the police. Posh and ostentatious, with little reward. Go somewhere else.
It was a really nice hotel - beautiful room and facilities- great location. The bartenders in the bar were really helpful and gave better suggestions for what to do in the city than the reception and concierge. No bathtub in room - despite beautiful picture. This is the 3rd or 4th Kimpton Hotel I've stayed in but the least intimate. Hotel was a little busy and staff could be a bit warmer and more helpful.
I had a great experience staying at Monaco, from price to service everything was perfect. I think they should have better pictures of the corner suite on there website, because there suite was better then the pictures shown.
Each and every corner of the hotel is just amazing. Love it!!
Great location for my work. Great restaurants in walking distance. Nearly ruin my shirt with a rusty iron.
We booked the best suite on the 26th floor for our wedding night. The hotel gave two sets of our room key out so when we went up to sleep at 2am after our wedding, there was someone else's items in our room. They downgraded us to the open room on the 8th floor. I was not given a refund as the manager said it was an equivalent room... It wasn't. :(
Great location, fair pricing, nice rooms for a city hotel. No gift shop, though it is in the middle of a city so you could find things for sale elsewhere.
Right in the heart of downtown Philly. The hotel was centrally located to many attractions and shopping. Also really close to public transit. I was on the 16th floor and I could still hear the traffic noise in my room.
The hotel was located near many of the downtown attractions and the staff was very friendly. We had a small issue with toilet (didn't flush well - may have been blocked). The people staying next door were load and let their door slam at 2:15 am.
We enjoyed out stay and had a nice room toward the back side of the hotel where street noise was less than rooms facing the front. There was some loud guests at 2am that were not quieting down even when security were engaged.
AMAZING CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!
I think the front desk staff were amazing- it was the quickest chec-in and check-out I've ever experienced. The cookies upon check-in were literally a warm touch. The room was a decent size- with a great view of the city from the eighth floor. The pool hours were until 11pm- which was great because I got in on the late side. There was also a decent gym and a sauna with lockers that you could put a code in and use. The decor in the room was somewhat dated and showing its age. The bathroom was small and it took maneuvering to close the door. If you need absolute quite to sleep it may be a problem because you can hear the traffic from the 8th floor and any hallway activity as well. The cleaning people knocked at 8am to clean- when I was checking out anyway, so I could of done without the disruption.
Parking was easy, front desk staff was polite and helpful - but housekeeping was loud and crass outside of our room in the early hours. Be careful if you are located in room 1602 - the housekeeping staff 'breakroom' is right outside your door. Directions for ice would have been nice - rather than the scavenger hunt I ended up going on.
Location was great and rooms were overall quite clean. A little beaten up, but otherwise quaint. Lobby bar and front desk staff were very nice. Someone trying to get into our room in the middle of the night and the cleaning staff thinking 830 am is an okay time to come clean the room.
DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Philadelphia Center City is a class act! From the efficient, friendly check in to check out, we were treated as special guests. The staff actually cared that we had a pleasant, comfortable stay. We asked the staff for recommendations on moderately priced restaurants close-by and were pleased with our choice from their list. Our room was comfortable, quiet, pleasantly decorated and well stocked with adequate amenities. This is our third year staying at the Double Tree for the annual Philadelphia Flower Show and we have never been disappointed.
Clean hotel and great price , good location . Staff was friendly and room was very nice PArking is $28 for one night
Great location, good amenities, will stay here again Nothing really
Very friendly and helpful staff
Great location, fun park right outside. Great staff & fantastic room!
Hilton is pretty much a hotel where you know what you can expect from them and it generally is a notch above their competition. Security in the lobby at midnight when I arrived due to loud and obnoxious people at bar. Hard to hear upon check in which was late. They put me in a room that is exactly the OPPOSITE of my profile request. No room by elevator... put me right next to it. Neighbors partied all night and hotel phone didn't work to call to resolve issue. When I finally got it to work, they never resolved the noise. When I asked for the room to be refunded and cancel the remainder of my stay, they refused! Since when did we begin getting held hostage by hotel companies? Very unusual for Hilton brand, but this staff at THIS hotel have work to improve.
Location The room and the bathroom had an awful smell. Please add better room and bathroom spray
Rooms were nice, clean and comfortable. Hotel overall appearance was good and stylish. Parking rates were outrageous. The bar was terrible and the drinks overpriced. I know the main restaurant/bar was closed for renovations, which explains the awkward positioning of the bar, but the prices for drinks were way too high given the bartender quality and overall market positioning which is heavily influenced by the bartender. Drinks were priced about 30% higher than they should have been, especially given the fact that I had to explain to the bartender how to make a simple drink like an old fashioned. Huge fail in an area where there are too many alternatives.
I really didn't know what we had gotten ourselves into until we arrived. We were pleasantly surprised. This is the perfect location and is close to everything. There is an adorable little park right outside that has cute little events all summer long. I can't imagine staying anywhere else. Oh and did I mention the view??? Amazing!
The best part of this hotel is the location. You were walking distance to so many tourist attractions and right on the river. We went down and explored the submarine and everything we could. With the conventions and the weddings without a little out of place but it wasn't the hotels fault--we loved it! Great pool too!
Efficient and good price Uncomfortable room, and difficult to get a bottle of water. Overall just a workable stay
Paying $30+ for parking that should have been included
Location Advertised a SPA online - no SPA no Jacuzzi - also pool was closed for some reason, which was the whole reason we stayed there.
The staff at the front desk were exceptional and extremely helpful. The doorman and valet were amazing providing information about the city and transportation. The restaurant and bar were horrible! Service was slow and overwhelmed but they tried hard to provide service. Our burgers were not cooked properly. My burger was burned and my fiancé asked for medium rare and got well done. We sent it back and the burgers still were pathetic and not good. We ate them anyway we were starving after traveling all day. Later that evening after returning from dinner out and a bit of shopping we went to the bar for a night cap and waited 20 minutes before anyone even spoke to us and then another 20 minutes to get a simple captain and Coke and a lemonade -- needless to say we walked out!
Clean rooms City Hall views Lobby bar with friendly bartender Friendly and accommodating front desk staff Diminutive gym Broken solar shade in room
Interesting hotel since it had been a YMCA before The elevator gave a lot of trouble.
The room was modern and aesthetically pleasing, with comfortable beds and linnens. It's not a big issue, but they gave me the wrong room type, and overall there wasn't a whole lot of attention to detail.
Staff was absolutely amazing!!! Location is two blocks away from convention center, reading terminal market and major attractions. We stayed in a interior room and didn't hear a sound. We will def stay here every time we visit Philly. Rooms are a bit on the small side. Lighting is very dim in the room.
Nothing The valet misinformed us about the parking. They strongly recommended we pay 50$ for valet parking rather than on the street. The hotel room was not very ideal or modern for the price. The towels and bed sheets smelled as if they had not been changed or washed. The hotel did NOT provide amenities, and the shower products provided were very low quality and would not use them on my body. There are plenty other choices in Philadelphia and would not recommend this La meridian.
Very modern with a side of vintage appeal. Awesome doorman Old hair dryers. Scratched mirrors. Dirty Windows.
Clean,comfortable and welcoming
The friendly atmosphere in this stylish, classy hotel. The rain.....but the hotel had complimentary umbrellas in the entrance hall.a very welcome touch as we'd forgotten ours!
Every staff person was friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. Location was within walking distance of airport terminal.
There was absolutely no water pressure in the shower; made the quick shower in the morning not so quick (or wakening)
The room was very nice. The bed was super comfortable. The walkway to the airport was a great convenience. I wish all airports had a attached Hotel like this one. The price was ok. Paying a little bit more was worth it. I would definitely stay there again.
Very nice facility with a clean, well-appointed room. Friendly staff who readily accommodated my toddler. Obviously the most convenient access to the airport. A great value for the rate. Additional charge for Wi-Fi. Its 2014!
The rooms were clean and quiet. Comfortable bedding, lots of towels, good water pressure, good lighting. No free Wi-Fi!! Quite expensive compared to other local options. Am I really paying a $80 dollar premium just to be able to walk to the hotel through the terminal? They also had no guide to the hotel amenities in the room, so I had no idea if there was a vending machine without going around the floor to look for it.
Very convienit from the airport ! 1st time traveler to Philly airport and was able to find the hotel with no problem. Because of flight delays I arrived in the middle of the night. The front desk staff went out of their way to get me settled in my room. My room was clean and the bed was wonderful ! No complaints !!
Location No problems $4.50 for a bottle of water
My fiance and I visited for the holiday weekend. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Room ammentities were updated. Great views of city (of your on the right side of the building). king size bed was nice to have although it wasn't especially soft. Room was cleaned every afternoon for when we returned. They have decent free wine ever day between 6 and 7. The hotel lobby and elevators and hallways were nicely decorated, full of art. Room size was just average, didn't have much if any more room compared to other hotels. The shower was nothing special, same size and same shower head I would find at a 2 or 3 star hotel. Nothing was inclusive except for a few toiletries you may have forgotten at home. We had a weird Brown smudge on one of our end table drawers that room service had to clean up. Only 4 elevators for 25 floors of rooms was bad, if your in the top floor like we were we had to stop at 4-5 floors going up or down before we arrived at our room or the lobby. Ice is Only on one flone which is extremely inconvenient. These negatives were a big let down, overshadowing the positives for the price you pay.
Great located, clean and comfiy. pretty new rooms. Nice staff No free wifi (pretty oldfashioned) No parking, 48 $ for one day valet was pretty expensive.
Location 1) Room was extremely small and uncomfortable. 2) AC Fan cycled on and off every 15 seconds or so keeping me awake during most of my first night there. I reported this to the front desk and asked that it be fixed, but was not. I had to turn off the AC the next two nights in order to sleep. 3) We had booked several rooms for a wedding party. Only 1 was available for check in at the advertised check in time. 4) Only 4 elevators for a 25 story building made getting from floor to floor very difficult. For example: getting coffee and ice (each available at only 1 location in whole hotel) took an unacceptably long time due to long elevator waits. 5) Staff was not very helpful. One of our guests left an item in another room. I had to follow up with lost and found 3 times before I was able to get it back. 6) in short...while I've stayed in many hotels in my life, this is one of the worst experiences I have had. Next time I will stay in a Red Roof or similar....my experiences there have been much better. This was certainly the poorest "value for dollar" that I've ever experienced.
We loved the service and the wine hour. Great ambiance in the lobby. Will definitely stay at Kimpton hotels again. None.
My hubby and infant stayed at this hotel for new years day, and we loved our experience. It was convenient to downtown philly, our city view king was spacious for a downtown hotel, and the hotel extras, like happy hour, morning coffee, and all day hot cocoa were lovely!
The hotel was pet friendly Hotel need a pool
I liked a LOT on December 12 Santa klaus with all the dogs around It Was simple delightfull. For me a 10 Star hotel. We spend 3 weeks and we enjoyed
I have stayed at Kimpton hotels on the east and west coasts and I have always had an excellent stay. The rooms are clean and well decorated, the rates reasonable, the staff warm and welcoming and the customer service exemplary.
Friendly and accommodating staff Plenty of nearby restaurants No business center (but front desk was helpful)
Absolutely LOVED staying here. My boyfriend and I stayed here after the marathon. Bottled water when we arrived, champagne and the staff upgraded our room! We got there 3 hours earlier for check-in and because our Queen room wasn't ready yet and my boyfriend was visibly exhausted from the marathon, they gave us a King room that was ready. The rooms are the perfect size, comfortable bed, clean bathroom with amenities, and room service was fantastic. Free wine social hour by the fire was incredible. Hotel is centrally located with a lot of great food surronding. We'lol be staying here anytime we're in Philly! 18% gratuity and 5$ service charge placed on the food service is a bit excessive. The lady (who was so sweet) brought the tray into our room and had me sign a receipt that had a tip option on it. Just mad it a little uncomfortable. It didn't take away how amazing the food was though!
We were in town for a wedding and gifted our reservation for Hotel Palomar to the newlyweds for the evening after their wedding. The staff at Hotel Palomar was fantastic- they quickly and easily added names to the reservation and a bottle of prosecco and lovely note was in the room when they arrived. They loved the room and we loved knowing they were well taken care of! No complaints!
Friendly staff. Good location. $50 for valet parking. Still not sure where they parked the car....
The location is perfect in the center of the historic district of Philadelphia with top restaurants within a short walking distance Hotel is a bit tired and could use quite a bit of updating.
Great location, friendly staff. Noisy refrigerator in room.
Beautiful rooms with attentive staff and great location. My stay couldn't have been better! Can't wait to return to the Omni.
Loved everything except restaurant staff. The front desk staff was excellent! I tried to call in a pick-up order, and your restaurant staff was rude and didn't put in my order.
We stayed one night and decided to extend our stay for two more nights. The location was perfect - walking distance to historical points of interest in Philadelphia and to the wedding and reception we attended. The room was well appointed with a nice view. Nothing.
Housekeepers were the nicest people in the whole facility Let me see Spa - the massage therapist texted on her phone through the entire massage, massaging with one hand then putting phone on my back Front desk - asked for late check out, was told it was not possible because hotel was sold out that night. As the conversation progressed or digressed as the case may be, was told that I could extend for another night. Not sure why it's okay to lie to people to their face Summary - not only will I never stay at that hotel again in philly, I will never stay in an Omni again. Not sure why the employees don't understand that their pay checks come from money paid by guests. You might want to let them know how the revenue is generated. Sad day
The location was great--right across from independence park with many other attractions within easy walking distance. We had a great view of the park through two big windows in our room. The staff was very friendly. Although the hot tub was broken and much missed, the spa was otherwise very enjoyable. I particularly appreciated the valet and doorman offering to allow us to park in front of the hotel while we loaded the car with our luggage. The drapery partly obscured the great view, and could not be pushed out of the way.
The downstairs spa and pool was relaxing and very clean. The staff throughout the hotel was friendly and quick to take care of anything we needed. Even though the valet parking quickly retrieved our car and due to the difficult nature of street parking in Philadelphia, well worth the cost. We had a wonderful time at the Franklin.
Breakfast not included
Attentive staff Noise between rooms
I cannot think of one thing negative to say about it. It was just lovely in every way. Everything was perfect.
I had a quick one night stay in Philadelphia and chose the beautiful Westin. My room was first class,and service was exceptional. I will definitely stay here again .
they overbooked. I had to find other accommodations.
The rooms are beautiful. We stayed on the top floor (15th). There is always an elevator available. The staff was very friendly. The shower was the best I've ever used in a hotel. It had a HUGE rainfall style top with a wand for all the hard to reach places and adjustable water pressure. The hot water was nice and HOT. And the bed was amazing! The view of the nearby skyscrapers was beautiful and it's in the best location to shop till you drop! I would stay again but I would only book through kayak because I got the room for about $100 less per night!!!! The only downside was that I requested a quiet room and found the ice machine directly across the hall from me. I only heard a few people in the hall so it could have been worse.
Location, shopping convenience, room decor, Large Smart TV, Raiin shower, Bed and comforter. All terrific. Nothing not to like
The bed was really nice. The toilet seat needed to be replaced.
Great location and atmosphere Prices of food and drink
The location was great. It was very close to everything. The staff was friendly and helpful. It wasn't worth the money for what you got. It nickel and dimes customers for everything and amenities were overpriced. Parking, snacks, water. There isn't a microwave or fridge in the rooms. A fridge was provided upon request but it was not in the best physical shape. The tub and cups weren't the cleanest
The room was very nice and fit our needs well. We thought the bed was as comfortable or even more comfortable than ours at home, which says a lot. Our shower didn't work. After a hot night outside at the Cold Play concert, we wanted to take showers before going to bed. However, when you pull the knob to turn on the shower, it came right out of the faucet. It was almost 1 am in the morning and we didn't want to call anyone. So we opted to take a bath but it was not what we wanted. Hence the reason I only gave the hotel a "Good" rating.
This Westin is very well located! It is located directly across the street from the HUB Cityview for business meetings. It is one mile from the Liberty Bell, so the walk was great. There were plenty of restaurants to pick from around the area without going by cab. The Westin has a very nice bar which served us some very nice dinners. The staff was over the top great. Our room was so nice. A fall festival which was quite large was set up for Saturday right near the Westin. It was a great experience for us!
