First off, we're still here and love this place. We stayed with the family in a two room suite with kitchen. Loved it. Got items from Reading Terminal and cooked a dinner. Staff - awesome. Desk staff answered all my annoying questions, Greg was always willing to help he needs a raise and/ or promotion. House Keeping - polite when...

Small lobby which made the group of men talking amplified to not being able to hear the reception staff properly. We were surprised with our room. It had a lounge area and a kitchen, and a desk area. Large and spacious. Clean and tidy. A lovely little card on the desk so we could tip our cleaning staff. In fact...

I travel 1-3 days every week. Ultimately a good lodging experience comes down to a clean room, preferably one that has had a soft goods refresh recently, location, solid service, etc. Unfortunately this hotel failed to deliver on the basics of running water in the room. I turned on the tap and nothing. Then just the hot water worked, if...

Old hotel in a great location. The view towards the city hall is nice. I did not like the BF as there were not too many choices. The staff was helpful and friendly. The bathroom was not up to the standard.

This property is in a fantastic location with a nice view of surrounding city center, the property itself has limited amenities, and is average. The one reason I would go back to this property is the super friendly, and helpful staff; without them, and location, this property doesn't stand a chance.

Dear magrusso, Thanks for the wonderful comments regarding the super friendly staff at the hotel. In being an extended stay hotel majority of our guests stay for much longer periods of time. The hotel offers a complimentary full breakfast buffet daily and an evening social mix Monday through Wednesday for our in-house guests. I'm sorry if you were looking for...

We stayed one night here. The hotel is centrally located (across from city hall), the room size was ok. We used the refrigerator but not the rest of the kitchen facilities. The bedding was comfortable. The room was clean. Breakfast was pretty good - the usual stuff (waffles that you make yourself), bagels, yogurt, cereal. The scrambled eggs were good...

The hotel is perfectly located in Center City Philadelphia, close to most attractions and transportation. The room was clean and the beds comfortable. The staff could not be nicer. The breakfast buffet was decent. My only complaint is that compared to other Residence Inns we have stayed out, the rooms are small and the kitchen was poorly equipped. Silly things...

I was happy that I chose this hotel based on the reviews. We spent two nights as a family at the hotel in July 2016 and did have a good time. We did not have a car and used public transportation, which was very convenient thanks to the location of the hotel. Breakfast and gym were good, hotel room was...

The hotel is beautiful. The rooms are small, but location is great! Right across from City Hall. Parking is very high at $53 a day! The staff is incredibly helpful. There is a 7/11, Dunkin Donuts, and Subway right next door to the hotel.
