The location of this hotel is AMAZING if you are looking to see the site of Philly. Nice historic building but the rooms are very modern (and clean!). Within walking distance of great restaurants like McCormick and Schmick's (it's right on the corner!). I visited in January so the weather was not so great; but I really want to come...

Found hotel on Priceline. Close to Reading Market and convention center and Chinatown. Small but grand lobby. Rooms comfortable. Has Starbucks and restaurant bar in hotel. Decor is retro chic? Security is good (need room key just to use elevator). Wifi is free. Tip: $15 for a glass of wine that costs $9 bottle is rediculous. Lots of bars within...

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel in Philadelphia. Everything looks near to the hotel. I was surprised to see the marble stairs and the room was quit and clean. The neighborhood has a wide variaty of restaurants and bars. The staff was helpful and the breakfast (not included) was also good.

The hotel is centrally located to attractions and restaurants in Philadelphia. The staff is courteous, though not all that knowledgeable of local attactions. We wanted to see the Mint on a Saturday, they didn't know what it was. We walked the 30 min to get there to find it was closed weekends. The Trip Advisor link to the mint said...

Visited Philadelphia with my spouse and three children. Booked with this hotel for location, price, and pool. Informed upon checkin (not Prior so I could perhaps change reservation) that pool was under maintenance but that it should be up in day or so. Day later still not operational. Never offered an alternative option by front desk staff even though upon...

This was a pretty nice hotel. The location was great. Unfortunately the room was dirty--carpet unvacuumed. I dropped my coat and when I picked it up it was covered in hair from the floor. I mentioned this to the front desk at checkout and did not receive much of a response.

I love this hotel. It has a very historic yet modern feel. The location gives way for GREAT views of city hall and downtown. Lots of things within walking distance ( even tho I didn't walk because it was in December! ) I'd definitely recommend staying here if you can!

We stayed for one night and couldn't have been happier. Barbara, at the front desk, was an excellent representative of the hotel and how helpful and friendly everyone is here. The rooms were big and clean and decorated beautifully. The location is great, we felt completely safe at all times. We are already planning our return trip!
