The hotel room was top notch. We were there in extreme hot weather and the A/C worked great! Nice shower, though the bathroom is very small. There are no hooks or racks to hang your towels. Best for couples, not families. This was a perfect location to step out and walk to Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, and all the old town sites. Parking was available next door to the hotel but not run by the hotel. Sub par experience with parking. We had to pay with cash most of the time as the loose card reader seldom worked. There’s no breakfast at the hotel; well, there is coffee with limited options, and plastic-wrapped muffins. But fantastic restaurants only .2 miles away. Overall, this was a great stay for us.
