Great hotel - very consistent over the years

Posted Jun 2, 2017
Pros: Breakfast has all kinds of food- sausage, several kinds of omelets and eggs, pancakes, fruit, yogurts and muffins and toast- best of any hotel!
Cons: The front area to get in the hotel
Location: We just stayed overnight each time so didn't use nearby things but hotel is well situated on the river and lots to do nearby
We have stayed 4-5 times over the last 20 years and it remains our favorite for food, comfort and cleanliness. Staff is friendly and helpful and breakfast is fantastic. The only problem is getting in to register as it has short entrance off street and the hotel van takes up one side and only one car can fit on other side. So if more than two people register you end up sitting in the street to wait. When we arrived the van was there waiting and a car was parked facing wrong way in the other lane-I finally got out and asked the van to move forward a bit and told the desk about the other car. They finally roused the owner and got him to come park his car in the lot behind he hotel and by then there were 2 cars behind us in the street. This has been an ongoing problem each time we have been there. Seems to me that the van should be in the parking lot waiting for passengers or in the second lane away from the front door so customers can easily register and unload. This time they had several buses of school children so at 8:30 there was a line for breakfast which they all pitched in to speed things up and when we returned at 9, we were able to eat and they kept up so plenty of food available-great teamwork in that situation! All in all except for entry to begin with it was a great place to stay!

Too close to the highway

Posted May 24, 2017
Pros: The coffee
Cons: -breakfast -a better isolation for the rooms
Location: The Liberty Bell was 20 minutes away (walking distance);
We asked for a room away from the highway, which was not given to us... It is simple: we were able to hear every car and truck... Regarding the breakfast,we can easily say that the food quality was poor.

Nice hotel near the historic district.

Posted May 19, 2017
Pros: Staff didn't mind at all calling cabs for me.
Cons: More fresh fruit at breakfast.
Location: You can walk to most of Philadelphia's historic attractions in 10-20 minutes.
Staff were friendly, the room was clean, and the breakfast was adequate.

Clean, comfy, tasty, easy

Clean, comfortable room. Tasty low-carb breakfast options. Easy access parking. The only thing that would've made our stay better is a higher floor with a better view...our room looked down on the dumpster. But we had a nice view of the Ben Franklin Bridge if we didn't look down :-)

Charging for parking, $30 a night was ridiculous.
