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
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!
Hotel location was easily accessible to many things in Philadelphia. For the price, it was a good value but definitely less quality then I know and expect with the Sheraton brand. Room was dirty and poorly made up. Hallway rugs were filthy. Many stains on all carpets, peeling wallpaper. Staff could be more attentive and friendlier. Sat in lobby bar area for a long time before someone spoke with us. Rooms in need of major renovation.
The staff was so welcoming as soon as we walked in the door. There was complimentary fruit infused water in the lobby every day. Our room was clean and beautiful I loved everything
Bed Where Uncomfortable Carpet and Couch Filthy Pool had to Chlorine that Burnt the Eye's
There were a lot of negative reviews but we really liked it. Location is good, room is nice. Bed is clean and comfy. The carpet may need a refurbish but that's it. 4-5 stars.
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.
no free WIFI No breakfast No minibar no free parking for the guests
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.
Easy check in and parking. Clean comfortable room. Easy to get places in the city. Concierge was very friendly and offered good suggestions and information. Clerk at check in was not all that friendly. Got back from a concert at night and our room keys didn't work. Had to head back down and have that fixed. Not something we wanted to deal with at that point in the evening.
Location and friendly and accommodating staff. Carpet needs to be replaced.
It was a great stay. Reviews were so so, and was worried. Nothing to be worried about! A little older building but beds are very nice
Really enjoyed my stay. While not traditional room service, the food at Urban Farmer was amazing.
Great location, nice rooms, wonderful showers, and the staff was friendly. The hotel restaurant was decent at best. It seems like it should be an attraction but is merely just a side note with interesting decorations. And they also charge $60 a night for parking at a hotel you are already paying to stay in. That was almost half of what I paid for the room. It's not NY or DC and shouldn't cost $60 to park. Ever. Anywhere.
The staff was friendly and accommodating. Old king bed with two craters on either side and a mountain in the middle. Sparse king suite room missing some typical and expected details such as a bag for ice bucket, a second robe, or a second cutlery set from room service. The staff was nice and accommodating, but we just stopped calling the front desk after the 2nd call. Also the vanity area of the bathroom was awkwardly massive - perhaps 12'x24'. It contained a single sink, and a separate make-up vanity (without a stool). The toilet and shower (no tub) were located through a separate door to the standard, camped hotel bathroom. Weird prioritize took of space, that made the suite feel awkward.
Hotel gave us a free upgrade to a huge suite. It was awesome. Staff was excellent
The Good: Very luxurious rooms. Friendly staff. Really good food on site at the Urban Kitchen. Location was prime to get to all the museums and city center. The Bad: 2+ hours delayed check in time. Compensation was essentially a drink at the bar. This happened to many people around us. When we finally got to our rooms, there were NO towels!!! For the price we paid and the star value of this hotel, I was very disappointed.
The Hotel staff is very friendly and pleasant.
nice room n veiw order a suprise bottle of champane to be in room never made it did give us a comp breakfest
We really enjoyed the level of the service provided by the staff. A 5-star gem in the heart of town. Can't wait to return. We utilized the spa and fantastic treatments. It would be nice if there was a relaxation room to unwind in after the treatments other than the indoor pool area. There were children splashing around in the pool. We prefer a more tranquil environment after wonderful spa services.
very attentive staff
Food at Urban Farmer was fabulous. Quite a delight. Rooftop bar was excellent - beautiful view. Room smelled like smoke. First staff person apologized and offered no other solutions. Second call the staff person offered an ozone machine to clean the air. He never showed up. I called two hours later after dinner and they said they couldn't bring the ozone machine to the room, stating that the machine couldn't be in use when the guest was in the room. Disappointed in response and knowledge of staff.
Management is terrible and has no heart. It's all about policy. They refused to cancel my room and credit me the day of my intended arrival even though I had a medical emergency and couldn't make the trip. I will never stay here again and hope you do the same.
Staff were extremely friendly!
Great Hotel! Perfect Location!!
Recently I had my wallet stolen with my credit cards so I made the reservation with a relative's credit card, so when I checked in the ask for the credit card and obviously I didn't have it and the lady receptionist would not take other type of payment, so I lost the reservation and the money and ended up paying for a Holiday Inn which did accepted cash. Very bad hotel don't stay here.
The location The customer service from employees was horrible when I went up for breakfast. Was going to be my first time staying at this hotel. After I found out they don't do COOK TO ORDER BREAKFAST like most embassy's and my room wasn't ready when I checked in as promised and the employees weren't friendly. I decided to take my business somewhere else.
We love staying at Embassy Suites with our two kids (6 and 8 years old). The separate space is terrific for letting them go to sleep before us. The included buffet breakfast makes mornings easier too. The physical property is very dated ... only one of the three elevators was working as we went to check out at 9:30 AM, so we walked down 18 flights of stairs. I feel really badly for the cleaning staff who are competing for space on the elevator in order to turn over rooms! That said, every single person we interacted with had five star customer service and a great attitude. For the price, I'd definitely stay here again, but there's nothing luxurious about it!
Given a great room with tons of space and nice views, thanks so much! Cleaning staff were so pleasant! We were turned away from the breakfast because we arrived at 9:29 and "there were already a lot of people in there"
Convenient location for City travels. Appears to be reasonably clean. Good value for the expense. The hotel is dated and well used.
Room door did not lock caught it on the way out on a Saturday nite. Waited over an hour for maintenance. Had to move to "the only room left" which was not a king bed (two doubles) and did not have a refrigerator. Really ruined the evening as we were not able to leave the hotel until midnight when we were planning to leave at 10:30. Got a new room the next day and the toilet did not work. Maintenance was there in a few minutes. Very disappointing experience. Front desk comped parking but then put it on my bill so I had to fight at the desk at check out to get parking comped.
The staff was great and very helpful. Our room was nice, very comfortable and clean. We liked the location as it was walking distance to some museums and also a Starbucks! Snacks in the early evening and free breakfast was a nice extra. I would definitely stay again at this Embassy Suites. My stay would have been excellent had it not been for the very long wait we experienced with parking. We were aware that it would take about 30 minutes from the time we called the parking attendant to have our car ready for us at the front. We called right after we finished our breakfast, went to our room to gather our things and check out. Once we checked out we waited in the lobby for our car to be brought around about an hour. We finally asked and were told that the desk had not told an attendant to get our car ready. They got right on it but we ended up waiting about another 25 minutes for our car, making us late to our outing. Had it not been for this issue I would rate our experience as excellent.
