Positive Reviews


Easy Access to Philadelphia Sites

This downtown Philadelphia hotel is near many city attractions. The Liberty Bell and Independence Mall are about a 20-minute walk or a quick cab ride away. Reading Terminal Market is nearby and features every imaginable food. There's also an on/off shuttle bus that runs a loop around the city stopping at the Art Museum, Franklin Institute and other museums and attractions downtown.

The hotel underwent a major renovation in 2015 and guests love the new space. Updated rooms are modern and everything feels fresh, colorful and new.

Guests love the beds here and say they're among the most comfortable they've had at a hotel. Rooms are clean and well-appointed with a desk and chair and windows are floor-to-ceiling, with some offering spectacular city views.

Negative Reviews


No Rooftop Refreshments

Guests love the seasonal rooftop pool but say they're disappointed the hotel has no poolside food or bar service. They also comment that the view from the pool is not particularly attractive. Some suggest sprucing the area up with a mural or more plants to distract from the parking garage across the street.


Expensive Parking

Parking is at a premium in downtown Philadelphia and some guests bristle at the overnight parking fee at the hotel. There are parking garages nearby, but parking in general downtown will be expensive.


Unreliable Wi-Fi

Wi-Fi here is free but some guests report problems getting and staying online. Some say service is sporadic and depends upon where your room is located.
