Doubletree by Hilton Philadelphia Center City

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 August 2014

Location could not be beat--able to walk all around center city (which includes some great dining options!). The room was comfortable and quiet (I didn't have a view at all). Workout facility was decent--includes a few treadmills and elliptical trainers with TVs. There is a gift shop and a bar in the lobby. No breakfast included, but there is a Starbucks a short 3 minute walk away (a much better deal than the hotel buffet at $15ish). As I was here for business, it would have been nice if there was free wi-fi. Parking was $25/day for self-park (average in a city). About a 20 minute drive to the airport.

I have been coming to Philadelphia for over ten years now visiting my daughter. Now that she is newly engaged, I am for the first time staying in hotels instead of in her apartment, as she now lives with her fiance. I think this will be my go to hotel! Everything was lovely. Updated and clean facility, very nice staff, and delicious cookies =)

The room itself didn't stand out, but the location was amazing -- right by City Hall and walkable to all downtown Philadelphia has to offer. The front desk clerk was super friendly and the infused water in the lobby was nice and refreshing. Would totally stay here again.

Located across the street from the Academy of Music and the Kimmel Center, 2 blocks south of City Hall and less than a mile from historic Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell, this
Hotel is very convenient. Although it had 20+ floors, the lobby was like an oasis before you got to your room. I've stayed at hotels next to the convention center but the Doubletree seemed much friendlier from the staff at the desk to the attendants helping you with luggage and parking. Since I was on a convention, I didn't eat any dinners in the restaurant, but the food served at the convention events were good. Breakfast was available on the 2nd floor overlooking the atrium. The food was on par for a hotel of this caliber but the atrium improved the ambience. There was plenty of room in our hotel room which had a coffee maker, a big closet and free wi-fi. There was lots of light and a view since we had two windows overlooking S. Broad Street. The hotel was about. 20 minute ride from the airport and if you took the shuttle, it was about $20. The cost of parking seemed high ($25 a day) but did have in and out privileges. Overall, I would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: I was on the 12th floor. I imagine if you were on an even higher floor, you'd get a better view...

Very nice accommodations like many downtown locations getting around can be challenging and parking is pricy. The complimentary cookies were stale (who complains about free things). The staff were all very polite, respectful and helpful. Our room was very comfortable.

Room Tip: The back side of the hotel looks straight into another building.

Dear Keith G,
I'm glad that our staff was friendly and accommodating during your recent stay. However, a stale cookie just won't do! We'd like to make this right by sending you a tin of our delicious cookies to experience the way they should be! Please contact Shavonne.Briggs@hilton.com to make the arrangements. Thank you for staying with us!

My granddaughters and I stayed at this hotel 8/13/14 for the One Direction that night at First Financial Field. The hotel employees were so kind and helpful, especially when it came to transportation to and from the venue. They never lost patience although they were inundated with a lot of young girls. I would definitely stay here again!
