        • 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.

        • 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.

        • 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.
