Fodor's Review

Close to the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Rodin Museum, this affordable hotel is perfect for art lovers. Recently renovated rooms come with all the basics, including coffeemakers, ironing boards, and spacious work areas. An outdoor pool is available in the summer. The best views are from rooms facing south toward the downtown skyline. Free parking is a big plus.

If you liked the "60s" you will LOVE thisplace e

Rooms and decor was "old" however, very clean and comfortable. Staff very helpful and friendly. No charge for parking. Best feature is location-- Across street from Rodin museum (which is free) and 3 blocks from Philadelphia Art Museum and 4 blocks from Fairmont Park. (largest city park in US!) City bus stop right out front for quick access to downtown.
