This hotel is hard to rate. On the positive side, you get discount parking across the street, it's a great location, the staff is polite and the hotel is very clean. On the other side, you have a lot of street noise, the elevator is oddly narrow (I couldn't imagine using it with very much luggage), and the layout in...

We were placed in a first floor room which didn't have any windows. That wasn't a big deal to us but it may be to others. The room temperature was freezing though and the thermostat was set to maximum. Other floors didn't even have thermostats in the rooms, they were adjusted by floor. I would hate to see how cold...

It was clean and the staff was courteous. Very good location downtown close to many stores, bus lines and restaurants. I walked from the train station where I came in from the airport for $9.

This hotel was really well located. I had stayed in Philadelphia a few years ago and at the time prices in the area seemed a lot lower. When booking this time around, it seemed all prices had increased a lot and the Rodeway stood out as having good value. It doesn’t have its own car park, but you can park...

The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the place is clean with modern fixtures. The room had all of the amenities like a coffee maker, refrigerator, and iron. The location is really unbeatable. Well-situated in the Center City area near a great restaurant and bar area. We were there for the Philadelphia Museum of Art and found a bus...

This was a great hotel for us to stay at. We walked to liberty bell, observation tower, philly food tour and it had a great Indian restaurant across the street. They held our luggage for us after check-out and it cost less than $100 per night. I would definitely stay here again. And the elevator is just about big enough...

The title of the review sums up this place. If you're looking to stay in the heart of Philadelphia with shops and restaurants nearby, but don't want to pay a high price, this place is for you. Of course it's not going to be luxurious, but it's clean and has all the basics, which is all I needed. The person...
