                      10.0

                      The staff were so friendly and helpful. The swimming pool was a welcome respite from the scorching sun! The gym was great too. Very centrally located- I definitely recommend it!

                    • Couple
                      9.2

                      The pillows on the bed. They were too small, not comfortable, and there were too few.

                    • Older travelers
                      4.6

                      Non smoking room smelled like smoke. Dirty old carpets. Uncomfortable bed. Could hear street noise even at the 18th floor.

                    • Older travelers
                      5.4

                      I didn't like being put in a room next to the elevator. Then we were put in a room that overlooked a slanted filthy roof. The entrance was a smokers' haven therefore upon entering or leaving the hotel, you had to breathe in smoke. The restaurant was dark and dingy. Signage was poor for the valet service.

                    • Family with children
                      5.8

                      Great location. Within easy walking distance to many of the main attractions within the city.

                      The decor was outdated and the bathroom was very small. Essentially we felt that the price of the room was too much for what it was. The price did not include breakfast. The internet connection was poor and after a couple of days did not work. When it rained the hotel did not have an umbrella that we could borrow.

                      The location and the ease in getting around using SEPTA-- the trolley.

                      The location was great right in the middle of the city and walking distance to shops and restaurants. Hotel was nice with a cool bar in the lobby.

                      The only issue we had and I'm sure we could of fixed was that our room was right next to the elevators. I think those rooms are extra small. Tiny room which we didn't like but we where to lazy to change rooms and we were only staying one night. I suggest when reserving the room to ask not to get a room next to the elevators

                      Nice facilities & staff overall.

                      The only negative comment I have is seems like it took forever for the hot water heater to warm the shower water.

                      It is a very nice hotel, good situated and the staff is very helpfull and efficient. We had a problem with the room and it was solved very quickly and in a nice way. We got a new room immediately and a free breakfast as compensation.

                      Excellent location and very good facilities. Staff were friendly and helpful, as well as efficient. Roof top pool was a pleasant place to sit and relax. The rooms were of a very high quality and well designed.

                      Room decor is outdated and needs a facelift as well as an upgrade to the old TV's.
