My elderly father and I stayed here during a trip to Philadelphia over the Labor Day holiday and the following week in 2013. Except for Aisha, who was TERRIFIC, the front desk staff all seemed to have "attitudes". Except for the blonde housekeeper on the 4th floor, who did a WONDERFUL job cleaning our room, the other housekeepers who cleaned our room seemed to omit at least one item every time they cleaned our room, be it toiletries or linens or emptying all of the wastebaskets. The young man whose name (I think) is Jeff (or is it Scott?), blondish hair/moustache, and who was one of the hotel managers (going by the information posted on the hotel walls by the front desk) was very nice and helpful to me and my elderly father, who uses a wheelchair, whenever he saw us entering or leaving the elevator. The woman who runs the breakfast room does a wonderful job and is very nice, as was the man who ran the breakfast room one day when she was not there. The free breakfast was very good. I did not realize the airport noise was so bad. None of the hotel reviews I read mentioned the noise to be a problem. Had I known, I probably would've chosen a different hotel closer to Philly and further from the airport. But, to be fair, the location of this hotel is very convenient to I-95 and the attractions in Philly itself. The wifi did not always work as well as one might hope, either!
