We were very interested in a full kitchen for allergy reasons and the hotel lived up to expectations. It was clean, the staff cordial. The location was rather difficult as it was near a rather busy road that was difficult to navigate but access to the highway was acceptable. Overall it was functional but nothing special.

This is an older hotel but adjacent to a new Hilton which they share amenities such as pool and gym. The service was phenomenal. Toni greeted us every day to welcome us back "home" and sent us off in the mornings. She's like a mom. The manager (man at the desk) was also incredibly nice and accommodating. The food was ok and they have a evening cocktails with full entrée so I ended up not eating out much at all. Local to restaurants, Starbucks, Target and not far from downtown either. It was very clean and the AC worked awesome.

Room Tip: The elevator dings so I would stay away from that. 2nd floor has the access to the Hilton. I was o...

We recently stayed for three nights and found the room to be spacious with a nice kitchen. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Having said all this (and still ranking the hotel highly) I would like to point out some problems we had. We were not very happy about the housekeeping services. On our first day, we came back to the room to find that they had removed the used towels but not replaced them. We had to call the desk to get new towels and they quickly sent them up. On the second day they did not replace the shampoo and other toiletry problems. On the third morning, prior to checkout, there was a loud knock on the door at 8:15 in the morning. I was out of the room and my wife was getting dressed. Housekeeping wanted to know if they could clean the room. When my wife replied that she was still there they asked when we were leaving (none of their business as long as we were out by checkout time at noon.)
The parking is inexpensive but it is an outdoor lot a couple of minutes walk away. This is inconvenient especially if it is raining. The room also looks a little dated. For example there are not many electrical outlets conveniently available (for recharging a couple of cell phones a laptop and a tablet)

In spite of the negatives, we enjoyed our stay very much. The location was great, a very nice area of the city away from the very expensive city center but only a short drive to the many attractions in Phily.

Nice to have a suite with a kitchen. The hotel had full breakfast and dinner included. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location is an easy drive to downtown, although may take longer during rush hour.

My stay at the Homewood Suites on City Avenue in Philadelphia represented excellent service by the staff who were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were ver clean and neat and the kitchen consisted of a spacious eating bar. The refridgerator was clean and of full size. The suite was very clean, and offered excellent sleeping arrangements in the king size bed. Complimentary breakfast could have been better, but there are plenty places to eat and drink and shop nearby, most within walking distance from the hotel. Overall this was an excelllent value for the money. I would highly recommend.

Stayed here for 2 nights. All the staff at this hotel were really nice, and accomodating of us. We had ended up with 2 separate bookings for the 2 nights, but they put us into the same room even though the hotel was full. And I especially want to give a shout out to Toni (?) who called me back after 2 hours despite being swamped with calls and helped with getting the bookings sorted out. The property as a whole was really nicely done, and the suite had a very convenient layout. (Rooms were a bit smaller than the rooms at HS university city, but still a nicer room overall, I think). The gym in the Hilton was pretty good, and the breakfast was also nice, though they did run out of some of the stuff by the end of breakfast on the second day.

Very close to Fairmount Park.

Overall a typical Homewood Suites and certainly the quality you would expect...however, having stayed at several of these properties (full disclosure I'm a Hilton Honors member) this did not quite hit the mark as the others I have stayed in....due to my schedule during this visit, I was unable to fully use the complimentary breakfast....but part of the problem was the difference between "breakfast is served from 0630 to XXXX" and "breakfast will start being put out at 0630"....I was able to get coffee and cereal, but had the breakfast been ready as advertised then I would have at least been able to grab something to go.....another negative was the housekeepers arbitrarily decided to limit me to one towel, which meant a wet towel in the morning since I had used the towel the night before - sure I could have contacted the front desk, but this is a premier property and if I need to do that I can save mysefl dollars and stay in a cheaper property where it is incumbent upon me to remind the staff of their duties. One coffee packet after I had used two the day previous, one condiment packet....are times really that tough Homewood??

Room Tip: Not sure if my free wifi was due to me being a Hilton Honors member, but a co-traveler that stayed a...
