                  • Central location an easy walk from historic, this hotel is a great value and the rooms were quiet and the building itself is an interesting design. The free breakfasts are adequate and served buffet style, the staff is very friendly and helpful. Bed is very comfortable.

                    Poor service and run down for the, the elevators could be a bit slow.

                  • The location was fantastic as most attractions were within walking distance, the hotel was immaculate and the staff just lovely, service people were friendly and helpful. The rooms were huge and pillows were extremely comfortable. Breakfast downstairs was very good.

                    Bed too soft, the elevators are very slow and have limited capacity.

                  • The room was spacious and had a good view, the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The beds were comfortable, the free breakfast also was nice.

                    Slow service and the bathroom trash can didn't have a liner in and was dirty on the inside.

                  • Nice position to visit the city free wifi, this place is great for families need a lot of room and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The suites are very comfortable, daily breakfast sometimes has long wait do to lack of space.

                    Not worth your money, the elevators were a considerable drawback to this hotel and the heating system was really loud.

                  • The location was perfect and this place was simply not worth the amount of money I paid. The staff were extremely friendly and the maid was very kind. The room was big and comfortable and the kitchenette was very useful. Tgi fridays food was great.

                    Shabby dirty drafty Embassy Suites Center City Philadelphia, worst Hotel Experience I ever had.

                  • The location is good and spacious room a bit oddly shaped as the hotel is on a triangular site. The lobby is pleasant and comfortable, the staff is exceedingly pleasant, just unresponsive, balcony is nice. Breakfast is great as the embassy is famous for 's breakfast.

                    Makes for a cramped common area waiting for elevators and the cost of parking was very expensive and valet only. Only the bathroom was cleaned and the restaurant did not seem prepared for the holiday crowd. Unfortunately the dining facilities left a lot to be desired.

                  • Awesome view and great Hotel. The staff were very nice, suite was very big, clean, comfortable.

                  • Great location, very Good Hotel and the front desk staff were friendly and helpful. The room itself was perfect.

                    Breakfast was greasy and lukewarm.

                  • The location was very central making easy to visit the sites of interest and for the most part, the hotel was reasonably clean. Staff and service were exceptional, the Suites in Philadelphia were by far the best we have stayed in, a variety of mixed drinks was also available.

                    No complimentary coffee in the room, inedible breakfast.

                  • Taxis to more remote locations are reasonable, the hotel is very comfortable and each room is a suite and very nice. Service staff very quick to respond we needed pillows.

                    Breakfast facilities are difficult.

                  • Fabulous view, excellent value and the front desk staff went over. The room was huge, the breakfast was above average, and the nightly happy hours were fun.

                    Bad food.

                  • The room was huge and the location was perfect for me, the hotel was lovely, the staff were mostly knowledgeable and were friendly and helpful. The beds were great and the complimentary breakfast buffet was plentiful.

                    Bathroom was extremely small and dated.

                  • Great location, stay clear and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Our suite was quite large and the breakfast at TGIF's was very good.

                    Rooms were not particularly clean.

                  • Great location and i'm happy that i used taxis. Good value for 3 adults and nice decoration. The staff were polite and the suite was also very clean and decorated attractively. The bar tender was very fast and friendly, tgi friday's service and food was spectacular.

                    The lobby was extremely warm and the breakfast is a bit crowded, the elevators are slow and the room furnishings aren't brand new.
