This eight-story hotel is a good value in a choice location—like its neighbors, it's close to downtown as well as trendy Manayunk, and its free parking is a huge advantage. Large groups are known to check in—it's a popular venue for wedding parties and banquets—so let someone else wait in line for you while you sink into one of the lobby's spacious lounge area. Guest rooms are decorated in earth tones with sharp, contemporary furniture and a spacious work desk. Complimentary newspapers are available in the lobby. The glass-enclosed pool, which has a retractable roof, gets plenty of natural light.
