Beautiful surroundings. Happy staff.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: pricey parking
Not only is the hotel lovely but there is a wine hour every night from 5-6 in the lobby. Good wines too. The hotel is quiet even tho' centrally located. However parking was an additional $40/ day while we could have parked a block away for $24/day. Very good food in the Red Owl Cafe served by ever-smiling staff.

Great location, nice restaurant and bar on property, Also the free cocktail hour every night was good. But I was surprised to have to pay daily for WiFi, we have stayed many places and never had to pay for WiFi.

I booked and paid for 2 king spa suites... the rooms were very small with a view of a wall and windows out of the only window in the room. When I booked the rooms I requested the king spa suites with a view . Ya not what I got and the room I had got for myself smelled . I asked to be put into another room and they tried to down grade my room type! Also, it was very busy in the lobby with people not associated or staying with the hotel because of the roof top lounge with a bunch of drunks hanging around . The hotel catered more to outside guests for the restaurant and lounge instead of their guests. I would most definitely not choose to Stay at this hotel again. No wifi, coffee is only available in the restaurant, very basic accommodations..... but I do have to say that the Greeting for the doormen was excellent, probably the best thing about that hotel!

Relaxing and peaceful

Pros: Everything especially the staff. Roschid who worked the front desk was a gem to us. He gave us great advice and even helped us get a bus tour!
Cons: The restaurant was ok but the Thanksgiving desert was blah. Keep it simple!
Location: Love that the hotel was centrally located in the city!
My Mom wanted an escape because this was our first Thanksgiving without my Dad who died 5 weeks ago. The staff was caring and very attentive. We loved our room esoecially the comfortable beds. The livlieness of the colors in the bedrooms made our stay vibrant. We got a kick out of seeing the book, “Alice in Wonderland”in our room. My Mom thought it was a Bible but when we looked closer and saw it was “Alice in Wonderland,” we giggled.

Extremely Close to All Historic Sites

Pros: Convention literature
Cons: Getting the room that we booked through Travelocity; we were promised a wheelchair accessible bathroom double bed room.
Did not get the Handicap Accessible Room as Booked. Either or could have the double that we needed or a king for 3 people that was accessible. Unfortunately, I was not not able to bathe or shower during our stay. I had only to clean up very uncomfortable. Part of my stay was very uncomfortable!!!

SNZ I'm terribly sorry to hear that you did not get the room that you requested or needed while you were here. As much as I cannot take back the hands of time and change what happened, I do hope that we ensure a smoother stay at the hotel if you ever find yourself back in Philadelphia. Please feel free to reach out to me to guarantee the perfect room.

Travelocity already billed us for our stay along with the hotel accidentally. The hotel staff was extremely apologetic and not only reimbursed us quickly but also gave us one nights of money back for parking. Great experience.
