When I read this review I almost assumed it came to the wrong hotel but some items make it seem like us. All I can say is that I am sorry. I train the staff and this behavior like this is not tolerable. Please call me to discuss. Brian K., Manager (215) 546-7000

The hotel is in a terrific location downtown with plenty of places to eat quite close by that are very reasonably priced. The check in/out...

This is our go-to spot to stay in Philadelphia. We love the location and the unique character of the building. The staff have always been very friendly and helpful. There are tons of wonderful restaurants and shops nearby, parking is just across the street and it always feels very safe.

We arrived at Philadelphia around 7 in the morning not having a clue where to stay. We started checking every hotel we could find on the map. We just needed a place to crash for a few hours. Everything turned out to be too expensive, and we had to wait a lot before we could check in. Rodeway Inn was...
