Thanks to previous travelers, I made sure to look up directions to the hotel and might suggest to hotel that they consider revising web link wording on front page and call it "directions. " Although the address is on Ridge Pike , the entrance is off Manor Road. Suggest anyone coming from airport take the blue route (476 N) and return that way. GPS otherwise will take you on small streets and Schuylkill
Expressway, a mess at any hour and good to avoid.
As for the hotel, it is in a beautiful setting and rooms are very spacious and very clean. Bed very comfortable and seems to have been redone recently.. Staff was very friendly.
When you arrive, be sure to drive up the hill to hotel entrance to check in as it is quite a long uphill walk from the self park parking lot to the lobby if you are hauling suitcases.
Coffee makers and small frig are in the room and brewed coffee was served in lobby in a.m. Breakfast buffet was delicious but breakfast service ends early 8:30 or 9 am so sleeping in isn't an option unless you go out of the complex to find a later breakfast.This hotel is literally across the street from the Masonic Village (but a good mile walk due to entrance being on Manor Road. You need to take a car or as available, a nice offering is that hotel shuttle will take you there)so it is very convenient if you are visiting a relative . Plymouth meeting Mall has good selection of restaurants and a great Whole Foods Market if you want to stock up the refrigerator in the room .
Although Travel websites had shown no availability of rooms, suggest you call hotel itself. I gat a room right way by phone.
