The staff were incredibly nice and helpful - beyond what I expected. The room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. We very much enjoyed our stay and will return on our next visit to Philadelphia. Not one thing was wrong with this hotel. Very, very happy.

A great place to stay.
One of the very best hotels I have stayed in. Beautiful room with stunning view. Good food. Excellent service. Really appreciated the special such as the treasure chest of toys—my granddaughters each chose one. Location is wonderful. A great place to stay.
