Editorial review:

This delightful hotel faces Independence Park and is a short walk from historic Philadelphia. The rooms are relaxing and old-fashioned. There's an indoor pool and spa, a staff that bends over backwards, and good food. The brunch is excellent.

    I planned an eating (and drinking) weekend tour of Philadelphia for my husband's 30th birthday. The location was close to everything in Old City and we were able to walk around with the nice weather.

    Booked.net made our reservation for the wrong night and the hotel staff was able to accommodate us with no extra charge.

    The location is excellent for walking tours of old philadelphia. the hotel is central to them all, and also close to many good restaurants.

  • Group of friends
    9.6

    I enjoyed the upgrades and the friendly customer service and the attentive staff. Room service excellent, but expensive. Comfortable rooms and beds with many extras

  • Couple

    Our room had an amazing view of independence hall. We were attending an event at the constitution center, and the location was perfect. The price was amazingly low for what we got.

    The hotel charges an additional $50, which they remove after inspecting the room. It would have been nice to be warned before seeing an extra $50 charge, although it has since been removed.

  • Family with children

    Great location, nice sized rooms.

    The pool/sauna/whirlpool/gym are linked in with the Spa so if the spa is not open you cannot utilize this facility. We chose this hotel because it had these amenities and were disappointed that because we were there over a holiday weekend the spa wasn't open for most of our stay.

    Great location, walking distance to many good restaurants and a short cab ride to many other good spots around the city.

  • Family with children
    10.0

    The value was excellent especially for a luxury hotel; the staff was well informed and helpful; the hotel was well run and clean. The hotel was near historical sites. My grandchildren were welcomed and that was the main purpose of this trip.

    Difficult to distinguish between what I did not like and a complaint - however - each day there was a problem with the pool. I believe the thermostat in the pool is incorrect - broken. Although it read 82 degrees the water was freezing.

    Really friendly staff, awesome location, lovely room, great value

    Pool was a bit cold. Crib was slightly broken

    My stay was wonderful, and your staff was exceptionally courteous and helpful.
