My husband and I travel as often as possible and stay at an array of hotels, motels and inns. This is one of our favorites. We were celebrating our 1st wedding anniversary and decided to stay simple by driving to Philly and splurging a little on a hotel. We were not disappointed. When we arrived we were greeted by a friendly woman at the front desk. We loved the room. We went out for most of the evening and wandered through the olde city and Penn's landing. It wasn't till we came back hours later that we noticed a slight problem. While the bed sheets looked clean they had stuff stuck to them from the wash. I went down to the front desk where a different woman was and explained the situation, thinking she would have someone come up and change the sheets. To my surprise she handed me keys to two other rooms and told me I could pick the one we preferred. We wound up in the loft room and loved it. I have never been in such an accommodating hotel.
That evening we ordered room service from the restaurant and were very happy with that as well. Breakfast was great and made for a wonderful start to the day.
When we checked out the man at the front desk also knew that we had changed rooms and was apologetic.
We will be back.
