This apartment hotel was superb for our 3 day stay with large comfortable apartments and extremely nice staff who always try to help in any way they can - subject to a couple of minor things (see below). Didn’t cook but the kitchen had all the amenities needed. The food at the restaurant and bar was very good quality with a happening small bar with excellent drinks, and the location couldn’t be better in Philly with all the restaurants and shopping around. A couple of things: Allow time for going up and down the elevators as one elevator and 13 floors. Some bathroom sinks are incredibly small - mine the size of a half a football. Maybe something the hotel could consider replacing in the rooms where this is the case. Not all rooms are identical. And the bathroom washbasin is a bit too tall for children and shorter people. Would definitely stay again as I really like the city and this is an excellent property with terrific staff.

Would stay again
We stayed in a studio room, which was perfect for the two of us. The hotel was in a convenient location, and the staff were helpful and friendly. The HVAC was a bit loud (didn't bother us), but otherwise it was a very quiet room.
