When I am in Philadelphia, I prefer to stay here because I can count on staying at a four-star hotel that actually meets its rating, time after time. My "junior suite" is an ideal size for even an overnight visit. It leaves me feeling that I have some room to move around without being so large I get lost. The bed is comfortable, as is the bedding. The bathroom has always been one of my favorites - in fact I remodeled my bathroom shower and fixtures at home based on it. I rarely get a chance to get out for an evening meal, so I eat at the bar. The food quality and selection are adequate and the surroundings are pleasant. The front desk personnel are both very competent and friendly, as is the concierge. This last time, my office got an especially good rate through an online booking service, which made the stay even more enjoyable. Downtown Philadelphia shows the age of this city; a bit dirty and unclean. But the hotel is safe and a pleasant retreat from the narrow streets and somewhat tacky stores nearby. The 30th St. Amtrak station is a short cab ride from the hotel. There are excellent restuarants and shops within walking distance. I look forward to returning in a month or two when business takes me back to Philly.
