Hi dlfisher1tn, Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us during your training. While I am glad to know that our hotel was able to meet your expectations in terms of accommodations, I was also concerned to read your comments about our Front Desk staff, the lack of sound insulation in our rooms, and with our shuttle service. I understand you might have had some inconvenience on these aspects and I am sorry. This should not be the case and I will make sure to share your comments with our team for necessary improvements. Thanks again for staying and I hope you would still give us another chance if you are in the area so we can provide you a better stay next time. Mike F. Case Manager IHGService

Is this within walking distance to the Fillmore? Seeing a concert there in September and trying to find a place to stay within walking distance. Thank you!

"Request waterfront facing room"
"Rooms facing the waterfront are quieter."
"Water view is quieter"
"Some have a view of New Jersey and/or the Ben Franklin Bridge. There was an exercise room on the 2d floor."
"Very noisy as you are right on I-95 which calls for a poor nights sleep."
