Rodeway Inn Center City
Ranked #54 of 88 Hotels in Philadelphia
Reviewed 14 July 2014

This hotel is very centrally located on a major shopping street within walking distance to all the major Philly attractions. As I don't have a car, it was ideal for my needs.

As hotels go, it was decent and pretty well-equipped. The room was spacious, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was a little dated but perfectly functional. The wifi worked well. The TV had a large selection of channels and there is a safe available, as well as an iron (no laundry facilities though). One odd thing - the housekeeping staff won't change your bedding if you leave any personal items on it (that includes nightwear!). I was quite surprised to find a note from them when I came back one day, stating that this was company policy.

The only negative thing was that some of the other guests were a bit inconsiderate and I was woken up in the night by people shouting down the corridors. Also, some sort of breakfast option would have been nice considering the cost of the place, but it wasn't the end of the world.

Overall, a good place to stay - its location is by far its best asset.

The hotel is in a perfect location. Right in downtown where all the action happens. The room was nice, clean and decorated in a modern design. The flavored water and fruit at the lobby desk is a personal touch.
I will stay here the next time I travel.

Room Tip: We were on the fourth floor and it was quiet. The room was smaller, but perfect for a downtown area...

I stayed for one night - and I know over the next four years I will be staying quite a bit more. (My daughter will be attending a university in the area.)

Location was amazing. I parked my car in the garage across the street - and walked everywhere!

My single room was on the small size, but is was just perfect for me. (It reminded me of a hotel I stayed in while visiting London this past fall.) I had requested a quiet room and got exactly that. Bed was comfy, room temperature was fine and the fridge was very handy.

Staff when I checked in and out were very helpful, professional and answered my many questions with a smile. After I checked out I was able to have my bags stored for part of the day while I visited many of the historical sites.

I highly recommend staying at this hotel

The hotel was clean and the service was really great. For the price and location, you really can't go wrong.

The only reason I didn't give it the max rating is because the bed was bit uncomfortable and my bathroom was outside the room, which really wasn't too bad. (but not all rooms are that way, only the most economical)

I spent four days here. The location is amazing. The rooms (at least the one I had) was very large, open and spacious. Initially I planned just a positive review. Unfortunately, there is more. Despite requesting several times from the front desk housekeeping never changed my sheets. Not sure about you but this is important to me. Further, at least on my floor, there is no thermostat in the room. There is one on each floor that is controlled by the front desk. Everyone freezes together or burns together. And if you want it adjusted you have to call the front desk and ask them to change it. And hope they get it the way you like it and hope no one else calls to change it back. Not sure if I'd want to come back

Prime location and value! Shower was a little slow - my only complaint but geez, the location was stellar. People were all super sweet, very attentive, and they remembered me by name when I came/went (can't beat Philly people). EASILY walkable to Wills Eye, Jeff,Pennsylvania hospital, the theaters, and more restaurants than you can count. Don't need to cab it if you stay here. Small elevator but I'll take it! Will return when I go back up!

I loved my newly renovated room, very clean and comfortable. The staff are extremely helpful and very friendly, especially the three wonderful people that greeted me every morning, Brittany, Fawn, and Sean. They took the time to find out the answers to all of my questions, as well as provided additional information that made my stay much easier and more enjoyable. I can't say enough good things about them. I will definitely come back.
