My wife and I were celebrating our 2yr anniversary and we decided to spend it in Philly!! The hotel was a great place because it was near the historic part of Philly where this country was built. Upon arrival, we checked in and disclosed we were here for our anniversary and was upgraded to a king suit w/jacuzzi!! That was awesome. The downfall to this particular location is that there is not ample parking for the hotel guests. They provided parking for the general public who were not guests at their hotel. Needless to say we ended up driving in circles for almost a hour just to park on the street. We then had to be up to feed the parking meter in the morning to avoid a ticket until parking was available. When we finally got parking we parked our car for a whopping $25/overnight. We left the car at the hotel and walked and rode the bus for the rest of the weekend just to avoid not having a parking spot if we were to leave the hotel to sight see farther out. I recommend this place but call in advance to make sure that they have parking available. Or get there super early to ensure parking and just catch a cab, bus train or walk if you visit this particular hotel. The only other downfall is on the second day, the breakfast choices were poor. It seemed they were trying to put out as minimal choices as they could.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by frajasr Hotel alright for short stay
Our check-in went smoothly, but when we got to our room we had requested a microwave and fridge but got neither. Called front desk and they had fridge delivered to room but did not work, so they had to get another. The room was mostly clean except for the bathroom, there was excessive dirt in the corners and vent, plus there was dust build up on top of the fixtures, also the room did not have any facial tissue's and no extra bathroom tissue. Throughout the night I could not sleep right because there was people fighting outside and being loud plus persons on our floor were letting their room doors slam on entering and exiting which is very loud. We got to the breakfast bar at approximately 9:30 a.m. and most of the items were either missing or were left standing for hours, no one was available to police or keep up this area. I am surprised at the problems we encountered during this stay.

Room and lobby area were great. Staff is unresonsive to any problems. So your stay will be great as long as everything works
