“Beautifully Renovated!!”
Reviewed 15 November 2013 via mobile

Hosted an event at this hotel and stayed for one night. Room was very comfortable and modern. Beds were comfy and I enjoyed the unique philadelphia styled rad boards. They were photos of Local items... Cambells soup, LOVE statue, etc. the event staff was great and the food was delicious! My favorite part of the hotel is the beautiful lobby. Just redone, swanky and modern. At night it's lit up blue. Ill attach photos to understand. Would definitely recommend!

This is our hotel of choice in Philadelphia. Surely no better than many others but after one good experience we become regulars. At over $200 it's not cheap but it has just been completely renovated and looks good. Our quiet room was a good size with a king bed. The bathroom was on the small size with a tub/shower - we always prefer a walk-in shower and are sorry they didn't go that way. We had a problem with a neighbor and really appreciated the way it was handled (including breakfast vouchers as compensation for the inconvenience). We will certainly come back.

We were here for two nights and the hotel was great. The lobby is very impressive and check in was smooth. The room was big and very comfortable,with great Photos of Philly.
The bathroom was a bit small but it had everything, although the shower did take a while to warm up in the morning! I found the location really good with lots going on and the main streets within easy walking distance.
Free wifi was fast and I was able to FaceTime without any difficulties. We did also have a Drink in the Tavern bar which was relaxed with nice cocktails.
We ate in the main restaurant which is quite high end, but the food was delicious and the waiter was polite and chatty.
Nice hotel.

Loved the new renovated rooms. Spacious, comfortable. My only complaint is the lack of counter space in the bathroom. I just laid down a towel in the sink and used it like a vanity. Great temperature control in the rooms too. The new lobby was about to open just as I was checking out (end of Oct) and it looked amazing. Their set up check in area was fine though and the reception had flavored waters and candy & chocolates at nighttime. The staff at this hotel were top notch too.

I always find hit & miss with city hotels and the noise - but this one was located on a quiet enough street that I slept soundly.

Sadly, I never made the gym, but it was open 24 hours and looked pretty large.

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel, we had a black tie function at a hotel up the street. The parking was convent, lobby was beautiful with nice staff. I got my hair done, an up do, at their salon and had a very pleasant experience, my hair looked beautiful. The room was nice. The bed was a bit firm, but comfortable. Lots of space in the room. We also got room service for breakfast the next morning and it was delicious. I would definitely stay here again

We loved this hotel. The hotel has been completely restored. The lobby is gorgeous with beautiful chandeliers. The hotel bar is is swanky city chic. The hallways are decorated with black and white photos of architecture in Philly. The rooms are very modern with all the bells and whistles. The beds and linens are top notch. I slept like a baby. They really did a beautiful job in the rehab. Everyone was very helpful. I will say that the shuttle to the airport was extremely late. We almost missed our flight. Plan ahead for the trip to the airport. It isn't controlled by the hotel so we don't blame them at all. They did everything they could.

The location is PERFECT. Anything you want to do or see is within walking distance.

Room Tip: Our room was very quiet for sleeping but didn't have a view. Our window looked out to the build...

We stayed for one night on the first day that the new lobby was open. It was very modern and beautiful. We were upgraded to a more spacious room because all of the rooms with kings were full, which was fine for us. The room was modern and very clean. There were a few remnants of the old rooms (weird airconditioner), but we were very happy. The best feature is that the shades close very tightly over the windows so the rooms stay dark in the morning. There was a little bit of street noise, but not bad. We would definitely come again.
