My family and I stayed here earlier this month and we had a great experience. The rooms were very nice, the staff very helpful and courteous, and the location was perfect for our needs. If I have one complaint, it is that the lights on the floors where the guest rooms are located should have brighter lights and the selection of channels available on the room TV's should be increased. Other than that, I enjoyed staying there.

Stayed at this hotel for a business function last year -- everyone had a problem with their room. One gal's tub broke & overflowed (this happened all on its' own)-- staff didn't even help her move into another room in the middle of the night. And the best part is that some people felt they were getting CM posioning from their rooms --- all the symptoms were there, and the hotel did nothing the check it out. The rooms were severely outdated, and
elevators took FOREVER!! Oh, and the food was horrible. All around worst hotel in the city.

Our stay at this hotel seemed doomed from the start. After waiting in line for 35 minutes to check in, we found our room to be shabby and in need of some serious cleaning. The wait for breakfast the next morning was 50 minutes by the time we got through the buffet line, the food terribly overpriced and not worth eating. When you could find a staff person, they tried to be helpful, but it was too little too late. I will return to Philadelphia,
but never to this hotel.
