We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 week stay here. Right when we checked in Darian at the front desk took care of all our needs and executed professional, hospitable, and courteous service throughout our stay. The hotel breakfast and weekday social hours are nice as well as the cleanliness and location of the hotel. Plus we were lucky enough to get a great view from the 24th floor. Best hotel and friendliest staff in City Center!

My family and I stayed here for 1 night for my daughter's 3rd birthday. The concierge asked if we had any requests and not only did they honor our requests but went above and beyond! Eventhough we only stayed for 1 night and eventhough my daughter is only 3. She had such a wonderful stay! Her cousin was in the adjacent room so they were able to play and basically have a sleep over. Everyone loved how spacious and clean the rooms were. The kiddos went crazy for the view and the floor to ceiling windows. They placed us in a corner executive suite. We honestly wished we could have stayed another night (at least). We loved the smooth check-in and check-out process. We did not wait too long for valet and the complimentary breakfast was surprisingly delicious with so many options to choose from. Next time we visit Philly, we would definitely book here again and of course highly recommend staying here.
