Visited in April 2014. The location of this hotel is the primary reason I chose to stay there. It is in the heart of downtown historic Philly. You can just walk out the door and begin your sightseeing. It has a nice hotel lobby bar and lots of restaurants varying in price and cuisine all around it. I did not eat in the hotel restaurant.
The rooms were comfortable with two arm chairs and a selection of different pillows. The beds were comfortable, not too hard or soft. The street noise did not disturb my sleep. (I was on the 6th floor.)
The front desk and bar staff were extremely friendly and eager to make my experience enjoyable. The bell/valet staff was efficient. Parking in downtown Philly is expensive and the valet was an easy choice.
This is an older property which has been well maintained. It does show some age but the staff was so friendly that it made no difference.
