            • Excellent location and rooms, also near bus lines to the historic district. Great place to stay, rate was good and the staff were extremely courteous and helpful. The beds were extremely comfortable and bar was fantastic. Pillows were very comfy and concierge was very efficient.

              High city and state taxes, an unrefined hotel to say the least.

            • Philadelphia is a great city, the buses serve the rea very well and hotel is in a very good location. Just a short cab ride to other venues and for the price you expect clean and dust free. The lobby is beautiful and warm, the staff is polite, the bathroom had a large shower and separate tub. The bar ambience is wonderful and the best eggs benedict I have ever eaten.

              Some of the common areas looked very old, hard to park and the water pressure was extremely weak.
