I was hesitant to book this hotel for my sister's wedding in Philly but was quite surprised (good way) with our stay here.
We got a room with 2 queen beds. This is a spacious room considering we have 6 medium sized luggages in total. I was travelling with my 2 kids and husband and this was our last leg in our 3 week vacation. I was even able to do a workout video in between the beds!
The hard-wood flooring is a nice change from the carpeted floors of other hotels given that we were having bad allergies too.
Bathroom is extra large. (I think each room has a different layout) But ours was huge. Which again is very convenient for me since I have to give bath to my toddler.
Breakfast is good as well. You can choose to eat healthy (fruits, oatmeal).
Service is unbelievably nice. Check in/check out was a breeze as well as booking online.
Location is at Center City which is walking distance to a lot of good restaurants.
Entrance is quite small and lobby is at the second floor.
I notice that the housekeeping doesn't really clean the bathroom that well (hair still on the drainage) after daily service.
Other than the CONS, I absolutely loved my stay here.
