Comfortable and Convenient

A great hotel stay! Everything was extremely comfortable and easy save two things. First was that I had to call to the front desk to have the room cleaned at around 3pm when I came back to the room and found that housekeeping never came by. That was a bit weird IMO but they came by quick and did a good job. Second is the fact that parking is so expensive but I guess that might just be due to location. Otherwise my stay was perfect. The bed is super comfortable. The location is amazing. Lots of restaurants, shopping, museums, markets all within walking distance. I loved the reading terminal market which is less than a 10 minute walk from the hotel. The room is larger than expected and all the staff were friendly and helpful. Would recommend to others and would stay again.

The complimentary internet was very slow every time we used it. We found the staff (with a few exceptions) were not overly friendly and a little bit judgemental. The hotel was in a good location, and the hotel was very clean.

Very central location in downtown

Very central location in downtown Phili. Good spcious rooms. Would have preferred a buffet breakfast option to the a la carte but the breakfast order I put in, was not a la carte and still catered for. Laptops are being advertised in the handbook in the rooms which I wanted to avail of (as I had a problem with my own one) but it wasn't possible when I investigated nor was the concierge aware of that the hotel was offering this facility. The computers in the bar were always busy and the nearest internet cafe is quite a distance away.

The hotel is very conveniently

The hotel is very conveniently located close to public transport facilities. Plenty of excellent restaurants in the area (check Noble). B'fast at the hotel is very French, of good quality but quite pricey. Valet Parking was terrible ( took a long time to get the car back ) and very expensive. Staff is OK; some very friendly and helpful others less. Our suite was big and pleasant with large sitting area. Nice welcome products from l'Occitane.
