"Not sure about the key pad at the very front of the property for safety reasons. Makes me uneasy to be locked out of the hotel itself without typing in the code. Other than that, it was a great area and decent stay."
"I loved our stay at the lofts for many reasons.. the location across from Independence Hall and many of the historic sites was awesome. Our room was very spacious and clean.

"The staff at the hotel are so friendly and helpful. I love that they have a great cafe in-house and 2 different dining options. It was also super accessible with the subway a short walk away and the trolley right outside. "

"This was my 2nd stay at this hotel. The service has been excellent both times. Friendly staff. Location is great. Restaurants, bars, shopping & convenience stores all walking distance. Rooms are always clean. Parking in the area is tricky, I just use a lot a few mins away that lets you go in & out. Great for couples. "
"Hotel is in a fantastic location. Very walkable to lots of sights. Room was clean and comfortable. Bed and pillows were also great. There is city noise but it's expected with the location. The highlight of our trip was the outstanding service we received in the restaurant, Coins. Tracy made our stay. She was the best bartender/server! "
