Beautifully renovated hotel in a historic building. Very tasteful decor.
Pros: extremely friendly and courteous staff; concierge was especially pleasant and helpful. We were given free internet for our one-night stay. I very much appreciated that we could keep our car parked there after checkout (until 5PM) - that way we could checkout, put our bags in the car (or could have left them with the bellman in the lobby) and grab lunch, shop, etc, without having to find another parking place. Room was spacious and very nicely decorated. Very clean - no complaints at all.
Cons: very minor - but - the vending machine on the 16th floor must have been broken as the cold water I thought I was buying came out hot to the touch; more annoying was the fact that when I called the front desk to report it, they did not offer to replace the water with a cold bottle. Also, I didn't like being woken up by yipping dogs in the hall; if they want to accommodate guests with pets, they should keep them together on the same floor(s) and not near rooms without pets. And although we booked under the Philly parking special room deal (parking included in the room rate), there was a line item for parking (on top of the room rate that included parking) on my bill at checkout; the front desk easily took care of it with no hassle other than the short wait in line.
