Excellent Location

Ther City Centre location is a huge plus of staying at this quaint hotel. People frequently comment on the excellent location near all of the schools including the University of Pennsylvania and Drexel, as well as the museums, shopping, restaurants and top attractions.

Always open to providing recommendations on what to experience in Philadelphia, the people who work here are extremely helpful and their stellar service has been noted by many who have stayed at the hotel. Others have said that the staff goes out of their way to make their stay more comfortable.

Many people have had quite the pleasant stay at this hotel. Guests have noted the very comfortable beds, fully stocked kitchens and super clean accommodations. Others have noted the convenient amenities from the microwaves to the coffee makers, and said that they would definitely be back.

Negative Reviews

Hard to Find

Apparently, this place was difficult to find for some people. The sign is apparently tiny and the property is not so obvious that it is actual lodging, especially for first-time guests.

Not Traditional Hotel

If you’re expecting a traditional hotel with lots of amenities and staff available for 24 hours, this place may not be for you. It’s not the traditional hotel experience according to past guests, but more of an intimate stay.

Distracting Noise

Light sleepers found the outside noise from neighboring bars distracting. People have said that the noise lasts for several hours and said they couldn’t get a good’s night rest.
