The hotel was very nice, the beds were SO comfortable. The concierge were very knowledgeable and very helpful. It's about a 12 block walk to Old City, but there is a subway line (Market) and a bus that goes down Chestnut and drops you off right in front of the visitor center. Both modes of transport ($2 a ride) were quick, clean and safe.
The only downside is that the only option for bottled water/snacks is the mini-bar. However, there is a Rite-Aid half a block away and a 24-hour CVS about 2 blocks away.
I had a beer in the bar and that was reasonably priced. We had breakfast in the hotel one morning and that was expensive and tasted just OK. Would definitely recommend eating elsewhere.
