We stayed over Christmas and we're incredibly impressed with how friendly and accommodating the staff was. The hotel location was fantastic - you could walk to the Franklin Institute or Liberty Bell or Reading Terminal. It is definitely worth paying a bit extra for the newly renovated rooms.

They upgraded me from a studio to a platinum one bedroom, so that was appreciated. I came for the Philadelphia Marathon and it was a great location to get to things, and it was right on the course itself. It was a short walk from Suburban Station, as I took the train from the airport. Easy to walk to some of the subway lines to get around. Target was close by so I could walk to get food and supplies. Lots of trendy restaurants nearby within walking distance. The only issue with the room was the small bathroom and extremely small sink and counter. I could barely brush my teeth and spit into the sink.
