“Great location for Philly Flower Show”
Reviewed 12 March 2013

This hotel was much more reasonable than others in the area. Great accommodations. Easy walk to flower show and restaurants - Jake's has great pizza. Asked for and received quiet room on upper floor away from street. Self-parking was a breeze and just a half block walk. The parking has in/out privileges, but for local attractions, you're better off to take a cab. Staff wonderful. Nice FREE breakfast. Would definitely stay here again.

I stayed here while attending the 2013 Flower Show. We could not have chosen a better location. The hotel is literally across the street from the PA Convention Center (where the flower show was held) and a short walk from Reading Terminal, Chinatown, and many good restaurants. It is a 10-15 minute walk from Independence Hall and the historical area. It is also a short walk from central bus lines.

However, what impressed me the most was the hotel staff and management. This hotel was quite busy while I was there, yet the staff - from the reception desk to the concierge to the cleaning staff - were professional, very pleasant and helpful. The manager was very visible and helping guests. The breakfast was well stocked and one of the best I have had at a Hampton Inn. Coffee & tea were kept stocked throughout the day, not just at breakfast.This hotel is clean, comfortable, and obviously well-managed (with a happy staff).

The only down-side is that hotel parking is in an open street-level lot a block down the street (as opposed to an enclosed parking garage). I had no problems, but if you park a car, be sure to remove all valuables.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights. We had a very clean room. The staff was also very friendly and helpful. This hotel is a short walk to the Pennslyvania Convention Center, Redding Terminal Market, and China Town. Breakfast was included each day - a buffet of hot and cold food. In addition there is a pool, hot tub, and fitness room.

The hotel was clean and accomodating. We needed a fridge and called down for one, within minutes, one was brought up to our room. Since our son likes to swim, the indoor pool was perfect in the cold weather. The best thing about this hotel is that it is in the middle of what we like most about Philly. It has Old City, Reading Terminal Market, and The Avenue of the Arts all wihtin a short walk.

Our extended family stayed at the Hampton Inn Convention Center for one weekend night and had a great stay. We were there to see the historical sites and hang out a bit. The hotel was an easy walk to Independence Square for most of our group, and a quick cab ride for the others. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the front desk was able to hook us up with adjoining rooms -- a bonus when staying with kids! The flower show was in town while we were there, but the hotel did a good job of maintaining a good level of service, and we did not experience any overcrowding or anything like that. The breakfast was really good, and one of the best I've had at a Hampton Inn with a nice mixture of hot and cold food. There was hot coffee available all the time in the lobby, and cookies in the afternoon. We loved the pool, too! The parking was the only downside, as it was a packed lot, and many cars had to be moved to get ours out. I don't really think this is the hotel's fault though. Next time I come to Philly, I am staying here again!

Nothing but good things to say about this place, From the moment we pulled up and the bell hop helped us to the moment we picked up our car to leave.
Was close enough to the convention center to walk and close to the restaurants.
This hotel is in the center of it all.
The king-suite was nice.

I stayed here because my Mother had to be hospitalized at Temple for a overnight and we
were out of state. The hotel was clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. When I needed a cab to get the hospital immediately one was provided. Very nice stay in a
stressful situation.
