                      9.2

                      Staffs were awesome - super friendly! Breakfast was included & there were so many great restaurants around this hotel. Plus Jim's Steaks was close so we got to try the best cheesesteak in Philly! The internet worked fast & free. Basically, this hotel was close to everything. We loved it.

                      The only two things I didn't like about this hotel were not having many tv channels & the coffee machine was broken.

                      Location was stunning and olde world charm delightful

                      Location

                      We had a problem with the room. We did get a different room, but did not recieve any contact from the manager at all about our concerns. No offer of discount, etc. Also after walking all day in the heat, we went to call the elevator, and it was being held by the cleaning staff. The elevator finally comes, and the staff holds it to talk to another staff. We used the stairs. The room was expensive and we're waiting for the elevator????. See the problems here??

                      Great location and staff very very friendly and helpful. the best hotel in the states we have been to so far

                      It's around the corner from the subway and has many restaurants in the area. I went for the Philadelphia marathon and the bus was right around the corner, which took you to the start line.

                      The price was high for the size and quality of the room.

                    • Older travelers
                      7.8

                      Centrally located close to the visitor centre and all the tourist sights. The warm welcome on check-in and the goodie bag.

                      Public parking which is $19 for 24 hours and 5 minute walk from the hotel.

                    • Older travelers
                      9.6

                      I liked the all around comfort, warmth and friendliness of staff, especially at reception and there willingness to assist at all times, breakfasts, afternoon teas/coffees, and an evening wine reception, and the excellent location for visiting historic part of Philadelphia. Woule highly recommend.

                      Would have liked more variety of breads at breakfast and a faster toaster! (Minor).

                      The hotel is great. So is the location, just in the historic heart of Philadelphia. The rooms are beautiful, nice decorated and clean. The breakfast is diverse, with fresh fruits, delicious pastry, and lots of other good choices. The staff is helpful and well informed.

                      We didn't like the fact that a parking that cost 19$/day was recommended to us and we took it as granted (we thought that were the prices for the city so we accepted it), while just next to it was another parking, that we saw later, cheaper than the first one. I consider they could at least tell their customers this fact.

                      It's location.

                      I was awakened at 5 am with a wakeup call that I didn't request. I guess it was for the person who stayed in that room before me. It was very annoying -
