              Jackie at the front desk was a tremendous help. She was always avaliable for questions and extremely pleasent. As a small business owner, I feel that she is a valuable staff person and provides a great first impression for your hotel.

              great people, great location

              the air conditioner was very loud but necessary

            • Older travelers
              7.4

              The suites are very comfortable. The location is good.

              Mandatory valet parking is too expensive. Breakfast facilities are difficult. (room service next time.)

            • Family with children
              4.6

              The faucet, sink, and toilet worked.

              Elevators never came...noisy pipes...air conditioner sounded like a plane taking off...3:30 Am wake-up by drunk hotel guests....parking attendant couldn't find our car...inedible breakfast...dining area more crowded than Grand Central Station and about as clean.

            • Family with children
              7.8

              Central location an easy walk from historic and museum centre. Spacious room a bit oddly shaped as the hotel is on a triangular site. Large kitchen area with full size fridge.Access to a small balcony from sitting room - great city views. Tgi Fridays is accessed from the hotel - nice and lively at night. Very comfy bed. Service staff very quick to respond when we needed pillows and extra cups in our room. Plenty of staff to help with luggage when you arrive. Good value for 3 adults.

              Breakfast at tgi Fridays is a bit chaotic until you work out where everything is and how it works. Did not like having tea in paper cups. Valet parking is all that is available and is quite expensive at 44 dollars per day. However we arrived in a cloudburst so were glad to have someone park the car for us. .

              It was very close to the Franklin Institute where we planned to see the Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful; they saved us quite a bit of money in parking.

              Most of the other attractions were down in the Historic District, which was reachable by the PHLASH trolley or ~1 mile walk. The cost of parking was very expensive and valet only.

            • Family with children
              10.0

              I really like the fact that they are very clean, service is very good and on point. The free drinks from 5-7 was my favorite part but overall it was excellent

              I just think the valet parking was too much they charged me 45 U.s dollars for just 1 night but other than that they were good

            • Family with children
              8.2

              The staff was extremely friendly. They helped us take our car top carrier off of the car in order to "fit" into the parking facility.

              The breakfast was a fiasco. The restaurant did not seem prepared for the holiday crowd. The elevators were overly busy on the way to breakfast creating a bit of a bottleneck

            • Single
              4.2

              The staff was polite and very attentive.

              The condition of the room was poor. There was paint peeling from the sides of the walls. There was chewed bubble gum stuck to the walls near the bed. There was a kitchenette with no utensils!! There were stains on the furniture. The carpet needed replacing. This place was simply not worth the amount of money I paid. With some sprucing up, this could be a much higher class hotel, because the space itself is very large. Hope they get their act together, and when/if they do, I'd be happy to stay there again.

            • Single
              7.8

              The staff was very helpful and friendly. The room was spacious and had a good view. The only negative about the room were the carpet and the bathroom's light (very noisy every time switched on). The location was fantastic as most attractions were within (my) walking distance. The entire stay would have been more than what I've paid but I saved little more than $100 since I had a special deal at the time I booked with Booked.net.

              Nothing except for the two things I already mentioned, i.e. the bathroom's light making very noisy sound and the carpet. More healthy breakfast would be nice.
