It was a whirlwind business visit to Philadelphia for me. Needed an affordable choice near JFK Plaza. This Hampton Inn across from the Convention Center was an easy 5 block walk from my destination and adjacent to Chinatown. While the room and corridor seemed a bit dated, all was clean and very comfortable. In fact, more quiet and comfortable than I was anticipating. Didn't expect much of a view out the window and didn't get one. The neighborhood seemed borderline sketchy, especially the one block nightttime walk from the self park lot. But I walked alone uneventfully to and from Chinatown where I had a wonderful meal at a Thai restaurant recommended by the front desk staff. There was a fitness center and pool/hottub one floor down from the lobby, all of which I enjoyed using. The staff members I dealt with, from the front desk to the gym, were all exceptional, enthusiastic in their desire to be of help and pleasant. There was welcoming cider and cookies at check in and the breakfast area had a surprising amount of available seating. The only disappointment was the breakfast food itself. Except for the now obligatory self serve waffle iron, all other hot food was inferior, including instant oatmeal. But for free, it seems a petty complaint.
If I return to this part of Philadelphia again, I would not hesitate to stay here again.
