Stayed two nights while doing some business in Manayunk just across the river. Nice, spacious room, clean but could use some updating. Not sure if the A/C was really working either - was blowing air, just not too cold. Breakfast was OK one day, not so good the next. They have dinner and drinks included each night but I did not have a chance to experience that. Only major complaint is the parking....not too expensive ($5 a night) and not too far from the hotel (2 minute walk), but it is rundown and doesn't feel safe. There is no way your car is secure there and I just did not like the whole parking experience - a little scary. This is why the hotel gets only an average rating.

My girlfriend and I stayed here on a Monday night because we were seeing Barry Gibb at the Wells Fargo Center (fabulous show btw). While the location was a bit further from the arena than we thought - about a $30 can ride each way) the hotel made up for it in many other ways.
First the room itself was great. Full kitchen with full size fridge, stove and microwave. There was also a couch, coffee table and kitchenette table. The windows opened for fresh air and the bedding was the traditional white Hilton bedding which I love.
Now the best part: Monday thru Thursday they serve a free dinner with free beer and wine! The food was quite good - grilled chicken, Mac n Cheese, veggie and a salad bar! Then in the morning they have a decent breakfast that includes eggs, sausage and potatoes. While the room prices averages close to $200 after taxes - if you factor in the complimentary food I think it's a pretty good value. Would definitely stay again!

This is my preferred hotel when staying in Philadelphia. A clean environment that provides amenities of a hotel home away from home. The staff, from the front desk clerk to security, displays professional friendliness.

We loved everything about this hotel. Parking was only 5.00 in a lot across the street. Breakfast and dinner were very good and plentiful and even included complimentary beer and wine. The rooms were clean and included a full kitchen. Staff wwas helpful and pleasant.

I travel with a team of 5, a lot, and this kind of experience is rare.

Every person got smoke coming in their rooms through the bathroom vent. 3rd floor is the smoking floor and all the vents are connected, so you cant avoid it.

The lobby is nice, the rooms are run down and reek of smoke. My room had dead bugs all along the window seal and water stains on the walls and ceiling. The linens seemed clean, but the feel of the room made sleeping in the bed feel dirty. The mattress was way past the point of needing replaced.

The bathroom was generally unusable because I'm sensitive to cigarette smoke and it's constantly coming in from the bathroom vent.

I checked in on a Sunday (was scheduled to check out Friday) and checked out Tuesday at 5:30 A.M. after the couple next to me got up and started getting ready for work and arguing. It seemed like they lived there. I couldn't get back to sleep so I packed and left for the Hilton right next door.

The only thing good was breakfast and the woman at checkout was very nice.

I would never stay here again. The Hilton connected to it was very nice.

Room Tip: Stay at the Hilton next door. Its not worth the free breakfast and internet.

This was the nicest stay I have had at any hotel in the past several years. Exceptional front desk clerk, very helpful and informative. Complimentary evening meal was great and breakfast was absolutely wonderful. Coming back to stay there in a few months!

We have stayed here twice and have enjoyed it both times. It is a ways out of downtown so you have to drive in and find parking, but not too problematic. Parking is $5 and is down the street a ways in a big lot. There is a guard but I think he is primarily watching the valet parking lot next to the public lot. Always clean and the breakfast is good. Employees are very friendly and helpful. Only have rooms with king beds and pullout sofas (to my knowledge), which is ok with little kids, but hard with teenagers who don't want to sleep on pullout sofa. Overall a good value and convenient to freeways and not too far from downtown. Would definitely return.
