“A great deal at a low cost.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013

This was a great pick for a hotel in center city Philadelphia. It's small but comfortable.

If you're not looking to spend a lot of time in your hotel room and don't have a lot of people traveling with you, then it's a perfect spot. There isn't too much going on in the hotel, it's extremely basic which I prefer personally. A double room has a sink in the bedroom, since the bathroom is too small to house one.

They have updated recently it seems, the fourth floor seems to be under construction at this time. I've seen mention of old tvs but our room had a new one. The construction did mean for an early morning on our last night since they started working and buzzing around 9AM.

Breakfast and vending machines are located in the basement, everything was reasonable for the over all cost of the stay. Standard mid-range hotel breakfast and snacks available.

You will be within walking distance of Reading Terminal Market and Love Park (JFK Plaza). Or you can catch a cheap cab to just about anywhere you want to go.

We stayed here while attending Flyers games, it's right near the train terminal but it's about a $20 cab ride from the Wells Fargo Center (which is located near all the other sports parks, so football or baseball games are just as easy to get to from this location).

The front desk is amazingly helpful, they'll help you out anyway possible. They called us cabs and assisted us in finding delivery when necessary.

It is located on the edge of Chinatown and there is a shelter next door, as two women vacationing and walking most places, we had absolutely no problems with the location.

I will certainly stay here again when in Philadelphia.

GREAT HOTEL!!!! I was here for a business meeting however the client had an emergency couldn't meet with me. So I took the two days I was here to sightseeing. This hotel was right in next to the convention center. The price was a bit on the expensive side still great since it was in the center of the city. Great customer service and room was a bit small compared to other cities. however, I got want i needed. Great Customer services and answered all my question and even recommended some bars and local eateries.

We were in town for the Rock 'n' Roll Philadelphia half marathon and only stayed one night. The location was convenient as the Expo took place at the Convention Center (directly across the street) and the race start/finish line was a reasonable walk to and from. Upon check-in, we did experience the same delays mentioned in previous reviews, however, in our case the computer had crashed (probably dated equipment). Dawn, who I believe was the woman assisting us, was very friendly, as well as, apologetic. In fact, both staff members that we had encountered were very helpful. (I can't remember the name of the taller gentleman who processed our check-out. I had no misconceptions about the hotel, and understood its place as Wyndham's "value" brand in its overall portfolio. The bottom line is: 1) The room was clean, and sufficiently stocked with the usual items (including free wi-fi). 2) The surrounding area was safe and well lit. and 3) Although the bed was not the most comfortable, we slept well enough to get up at 5am and proceed to run 13.1 miles through a very beautiful city. I can't complain.

Room Tip: If possible, request a room at the front of the hotel 201, 301, 401, etc. Its rectangular shape, an...
