    Walkikng distance to everything, from a waterfront park to theatres to tons of good restaurants.

    No immediate bus or subway connections

    Nice view on the river

    Room service staff went in the room whilest sleeping at night. It made the night a terrifying night when I found a stranger in my room. When spoke to hotel manager they apologised the room service staff was going to the next room when he knocked on my room, the wrong room. When no one answer he just went into.

    Basic base for seeing the town. Handy free bus to get you places. Short walk to some sights

    Not so easy to cross the busy road outside

  • Family with children

    location, clean for the most part

    the window in our room would not close all the way so there was some mold around the window. also there were little bugs on the wall, probably due to the window not closing all the way. lamp did not work and there were cigarette holes in the comforter. yuck. bed was a little worn out too.

    free shuttle bus

    Difficult to go to city center by foot because of the main roads passing next to the hotel, poor internet connection in the room, poor breakfast

  • Single
    7.8

    Good views from window, clean and fairly close to main drag. The biggest draw was the price.

    Long waits for lift. One lift was not working for most of my stay. But, these things happen! Unable to use courtesy bus to Amtrak train station - outside bus limit!!!

  • Couple

    Great location and value for the room, the the parking was rather expensive (though admittedly about the same as any other Philadelphia hotel, and at least you offer unlimited in and out privileges). The free shuttle service was extremely convenient.

    The wireless internet had abysmal connectivity and the pay per view television interface did not work properly.

  • Group of friends

    That the rooms were fairly spacious and very clean.

    The check in policy

  • Single
    7.8

    Free wifi in the entire hotel, complimentary shuttle, great price, good location, free breakfast. These amenities/features are really appealing and appreciated. Great views of the Ben Franklin Bridge and the Delaware River.

    Beds were not as comfortable as I had hoped (more firm). Also, the pillows are very annoying. They are square and sized like a throw pillow for a couch. For someone who tosses and turns a lot in their sleep, my face kept falling off and hitting the bed which would wake me up.

  • Family with children
    3.2

    I liked the location of the hotel in relation to the historical sites

    The hotel is not clean. The beds where very worn and need to be replaced. The hotel staff at the front desk was very rude. Housekeeping did not replace soap, tissue or shampoo. Will not likely stay at this hotel ever again.

  • Family with children
    7.8

    Very good location near the benjamin franklin bridge. We got a ideal room face to the beautiful river and the great bridge.

    The one-day parking cost me 23 dollars. If I knew it at first, maybe i would not live there.

  • Group of friends
    9.2

    I love the river view of the hotel. It is not in the centre while with better surrounding compare to the city center.

  • Family with children
    6.2

    The location was very convenient and the free shuttle was good. Breakfast was sufficient but the space was congested and disorganised. .

    Unfortunatley there was no fridge in the room and the service was very slow.

  • Couple
    7.8

    I really liked the location, and the pricing compared to other hotels on that strip.

  • Group of friends
    8.2

    They gave us a big room facing the river, we liked it a lot. Quiet and very confortable. The hotel staff were friendly and helpfull.

    Nothing negative to say about them.
