I booked this through hotwire and got a relatively good deal, especially with last minute booking on hotwire <$100.
I've stayed here before and it was really good and I loved the area.
Some things to note on your trip here:
1) This is a college area, so If you're a older couple, it probably wouldn't be appropriate for you. Younger couples/singles will love it since it is really a booming college town with Drexel, University of Penn, etc around
2) It is a little ways off from main downtown, thus said you will need a car, or will need to ride the SEPTA (Train/BUS). While you could walk 20 or so blocks most people won't be into doing this.
3) If your'e coming into 30th Street station, then this is a great place for you as it's located only 61/2 blocks away.
4) I'm not sure if this applies to all rooms but I stayed on the 8th floor, and had Internet Access via terminal in my room, so you may not need a computer.
5) The rooms are pretty big, although the bathroom may seem small. It's just a great value for your'e money.
I recommend this for singles, younger couples, and those looking for a quiet get-away. I would not recommend for Older Couples (40's + ) or those who don't like a college atmosphere.
Hope this is helpfull.
