I've stayed at this facility many times over the years because it is conveniently located to SEPTA, Reading Market and the convention center etc. It's been refurbished and now has a bar in what used to be part of the lobby. The bar does provide some food, but unless there's a blizzard outside I'd eat somewhere else.... perhaps China town or the Reading Market area.
The rooms are beginning to show some wear and tear since I stayed there last and if you're expecting a decent view of Philadelphia you'll have to stay somewhere else.
When I checked in there was a fire engine in front of the hotel, but it turned out to be just a false alarm and while I was allowed to check in the elevators couldn't be used. To make matters worse, the hotel staff on duty at the time had difficulty resetting the fire alarm, so there was about an hour's delay before I could go up to my room.
Even though I was there on a winter night, my room was much too warm and I had to turn the a/c on and it was relatively noisy
I would stay at this hotel again, but only if I couldn't find anything less expensive in Center City Philadelphia.
