“Nice and Simple Hotel very convenient for Convention Center”
Reviewed 25 October 2013

Very simple, clean well and convenient located for the convention center. 2 minutes walk. 10 minutes to downtown Philadelphia and very near chinatown. The staff was very friendly and helpful for any need we request.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor the noise in the street is disturbing in the lower ones.

Reviewed 20 October 2013

My boyfriend and I arrived here and realized that we were confirmed for two double beds instead of one king bed. We checked our email and to our surprise we were booked for two double beds. We were informed that since the hotel was completely booked there was nothing they could do. However, Jessica at the front desk was sooo nice and helpful and gave us two $12 breakfast coupons to make it up to us!!! She was super friendly and nice about the whole situation. Also when we got to the room we realized we could fit on one bed since the beds are not that small!!! The breakfast was delicious and reasonably priced. During our stay we realized we forgot our toothbrush, I called downstairs and immediately someone showed up with toothpaste and toothbrushes he too was super nice and friendly. I love the complimentary teas and coffee they have here and would definitely return ! Thanks Jessica and the rest of the staff for making our stay such a pleasant one :)

The entire staff at this hotel is friendly, helpful and right on any situation that required attention. The view from our room overlooking the Basilica was breathtaking. The location of this property, near the museums was perfect for us. Many restaurants near by as well. The only negative comments are as follows: The on-line description of this hotel, as well as the in-room guide listed a Phillips Seafood restaurant on the property. We found out that as of July of 2013, they had no real dinner accommodations( except for a lovely bar, serving small bar type food). At this hotel as Phillips was gone. The lobby and dining area for breakfast and lunch was newly renovated and redecorated and was wonderful!
The attention from the staff was just super. From the check-in to the concierge (Francois) to the wait staff (Nick) for breakfast and the housekeepers, all were great! Attention is needed for the room, however. Our room's carpet needed to be cleaned, the outlet on the window side of the room was faulty and the tub diverter was malfunctioning.

We stayed here using Starpoints and were very happy with the location and the hotel. The hotel is located right at the edge of Chinatown, within an easy walk to many of the tourist sites. The neighborhood is interesting and safe. We enjoy both Asian cuisine and supermarkets, so it was a great walking area for us. Lots of excellent restaurants within a couple of blocks of the hotel.

The staff was friendly and helpful. Everything was clean and worked well...a/c, heat, (used both this visit), shower, etc. and the bed was very comfortable.

The only downsides was that the restaurant was just OK for breakfast. We'd suggest eating elsewhere. Coffee is available for free until 10am and there were fresh apples in the lobby and on our floor (probably every floor) which is a nice touch. Also, parking was pricey, but you are in a big city. You may find cheaper parking elsewhere, but we liked the convenience of being right across the street with in-out privileges.

A very good place to stay, and we'll go back the next time we visit.

700 room convention hotel located just out of the city center. A room on an upper floor was very noisy due to the freeways passing by below. The hotel has room service and the bar serves food but there are no real restuarants in the hotel and there is nothing nearby leaving a several block walk through an unappealing area if you're going to venture out to find something to eat.

It located just beside the convention center, very convenient and just one block from China town, where you can easily find many yummy foods. There is a self parking lot across the street. The room is not that spacious but tidy. On average, a good place to rest.

the front desk is very friendly and helpful. They gave me the first-time voucher of free breakfast.

The location is easy to get, and there are a couple of nice Chinese restaurants nearby, and also near to the subway station.
