Bien placé il est vrai mais très cher pour le service rendu. Evite de payer le parking puisque gratuit chez eux. Reste à faire le calcul du rapport Qualité/prix en prenant un hotel exterieur (moins cher) + parking en ville.

While not the best in shape hotel. There were several problems including peeling wall paper, constant water sounds going through the heating system, a tub that didn't drain, and several electrical outlets that didn't work. The sheets were clean and burn marks as you would typically find in a hotel of this caliber. Nothing too offending.

Good location and the free parking is a definite plus. However, the maids apparently don't know how to vaccuum - we had to call the front desk repeatedly to have them clean up stuff that was in the middle of the carpets when we checked in. If you just need a place to sleep, this is pretty good and a decent bargain. Just don't go in expecting top-shelf cleanliness.

This hotel was filthy. The elevator carpet was filthy, the room was old and dirty. Bathroom door had caked up dirt on it, the shower was clogged, there was a good amount of mold under the soap dispenser, water rot, mold behind door, chipped tile with poor patch job etc. Worst of all was the unknown yellowish stain on the towel provided. This was disgusting! I will never stay there again and reccommend nobody else does either.

The staff seems to be doing as well as it can with this aging hotel. The hotel is conveniently located fairly close to downtown and very close to several bus routes. The room was clean, and the staff was responsive to my requests. But the facility seems to be falling apart: the lobby is straight out of the 70s, and the fixtures in my bathroom seemed ready to crumble. Decent value, because it was a pretty inexpensive room, but I'm glad I didn't pay more than I did.

Great location and free parking allowed us to visit family in the nearby area. Many museums and attractions are also nearby. Since this was our third trip to the city, we had a chance to see some other areas of interest to us. The hotel is old and desperately in need of refurbishment, but the room and bathroom were very clean, and quiet (except for the noisy A/C -- which we are used to hearing anyway). Beds were extremely comfortable, and everything worked just fine for the 3 nights we were there (except on our last morning we learned that our shower was leaking into the room below us, so maintenance tried to locate the problem as we were leaving). The hot breakfast was very good -- but quite expensive and does not come with the room. You may want to make other breakfast arrangements, as we did on subsequent days. When we checked in, there were roller-bladers in the lobby & parking lot who were also staying there, but we didn't hear them upstairs in our room. It was lively, and fun to watch them! All things considered, we would stay there again. Can't beat the free parking and the location!! The area seemed relatively safe, too.

The outside looked better than the inside. The staff were courteous but the hallways, elevators, stairwell and rooms all reeked of last weeks visitors. The room was so old if felt dirty. I consided my move to the Motel 6, an upgrade.

If you are not concerned with luxury, and you have location and budget in mind, then this is the hotel for you. Just a 5-minute walk to the Philadelphia Art Museum and other attractions, along with free parking and free internet, as well as a on-site bar, make this hotel a no brainer.
