The location of this hotel for our visit couldn't have been better. We were a block ( if that) from The Independence Center. Great for visiting the local sights & being able to pop back to the room to either rest before a late dinner to drop off things gathered throughout the day. Staff was informative & helpful. As some...

This was a perfect setting for a special event and historical sight seeing. Half a block from everything and great staff. Several fine casual dining spots near by. If you have kids request the milk and cookies each evening! A bit pricey, but good value for all you get.

For a hotel which for the price one would expect a bit of luxury, this was far from that based on my family's experience. Having driven two hours from Hershey we arrived at the location at 9:30PM ready to relax from a fun filled day and to go enjoy the sights of Independence Hall the next morning. Upon arrival the...

Great place to stay! Location is awesome, steps away from all historical sights Philadelphia has to offer & one of the best restaurants in Philadelphia is right down the block. Great rooms and staff, Chris, the general manager really cares about the guests and takes pride in the hotel.

This place is a must stay. Absolutely fantastic. The location is incredible. You basically step out of the front door into Independence Park. You can see the Liberty Bell in your pajamas! Being a downtown hotel you will have to valet, which is expensive so beware. I think self parking was a little cheaper but would require a walk. We...

Had to stay for jury duty at 601 Market street which is 2 blocks away! Bourse food court is in between the hotel and the court which made everything convenient! Bed is very comfortable. Big screen TV. Nice location for Philadelphia across from the Independence Hall.

Great place to stay to take in historical sights! It was convenient to many iconic locations and wonderful places to eat as well. The concierge was helpful. Loved the infused water in the lobby. We were able to check our luggage after we checked out allowing us to do a little more sightseeing.
