The staff makes the difference! The people working the Rodeway Inn were the best. They gave us great tips on dinning and getting around the city. Amber suggested a local Mexican restaurant called El Vez that was amazing. When you visit a new city getting help like this can make an OK trip into a great trip. Amber and the...

When staying in philly I highly recommend staying at the Roadway Inn in center city! I called the day before to make sure my reservation was still in place for this past Saturday and found out that there was an issue (on my part) and billing didn't go through.

Adriana and Chris, Thanks for the review! It was my pleasure to assist with your reservation. You are also right that in today's world customer service is a relic from the past. I am fortunate to remember when patience was a virtue and that the goal of each situation is to make the guest happy and satisfied. Looks like I...

Marvelous Hotel.... The Front Desk Manager Brian and his staff were very welcoming and accommodating. We will absolutely stay again in the very near future. I'd definitely recommend ! The surrounding Area offers so much convenience. The diverse options for food and other businesses offering could be overwhelming. Just a wonderful experience.

We were a bit nervous about a "Rodeway Inn" in downtown Philly. We thought it might be for truckers (working men) and not the best place. This hotel is AWESOME! There are some realistic downsides: Small elevator, small hallways, outside city noises (construction, etc.). Strangely we could not control the heat from inside the room but the front desk helped...

I tried to book the hotel on line through Trip Advisor 2 blocks from the hospital as my husband was in critical condition. The site told me the reservation did not go through due to an unknown error. Therefore, I booked through another site. When I arrived at the hotel, they told me I had 2 reservations for the same...

I booked a room at this hotel on TripAdvisor. After checking in, I found out that the room has a bathroom down the hall, not in the room. When I went back to the front desk, I had to pay $40 more per night to get an in-room bathroom. I'm out $80!!! The front desk person was very nice, and...

TripAdvisor will remove this response but until they do here is the scoop. Companies like TripAdvisor are not reservation companies they are "Information collecting companies". They want your name, credit card number, address and pin and once they get it they resell it to every company out there willing to pay. Then they make a reservation for you. My suggesiton...

My daughter planned out a mother-daughter trip for us to go to Wizard World Comic Con in Philadelphia in June 2016. She researched thoroughly and found this hotel to have the best price that was within walking distance to the convention center. It was a great location.

Brian did a super job in working out a problem with my reservation. All hotels in the area were booked for major events that week and Brian could have easily made me pay the non-discounted rate, but he kindly made the adjustments and made my stay a most pleasant experience.

We had a really good overnight stay in this hotel. We were apprehensive when checking in, since the place looked tiny (and there were 4 of us). Then we went to our room, dragging our bags through the extremely narrow hallways. But the room was huge. It easily accommodated our family, all our bags and with plenty of spare space...
