Worth every penny
Posted Jul 7, 2016 on Hotels
On a recent visit to Philadelphia, we decided to stay here for a couple nights before heading back home. It was something of a treat for us, since we love the restaurant (La Croix) and its friendly bar staff (Amy and Tony, in particular). Upon arrival, we were upgraded to a junior suite overlooking the park. How lovely! The service throughout our stay was impeccable. Doormen are attentive (especially our favourite, Shamus) and professional. Front desk staff are superb. Housekeeping team members are friendly and detailed. Wifi is fast and free. Welcome drinks are delicious. My only gripe would pertain to the outdated room decor. If I recall, the last time I stayed here in a large suite years ago, everything was pristine and new. This time, small things bothered me: peeling wallpaper in the bathroom, chipped plating on the bathroom fixtures, and shocking royal blue carpeting. I think it could well be the room alone and not a reflection of the larger hotel accommodation choices. Regardless, worth every penny.
