Marathon Weekend

Stayed at the Windsor for 2 nights during marathon weekend. Pros - Perfect location near start/finish line. Plenty of dining options within a short walk. Friendly staff. Loved the balcony (balconies are becoming extinct in urban hotels).....great views. Cons - cleaning service didn't show up til 5 pm. I imagine they were understaffed considering they were probably at capacity that weekend. Elevators are too few and too small for a hotel of that size. Lastly, though relatively insignificant, but still strange, I made a call for pizza on the room phone instead of my cell, and was charged 60 cents for the call. Kind of odd, but no big deal. Overall, I'd definitely stay here again, especially if wanting to explore the museums and Fairmount area a bit more.

Avoid the urge to eat/drink in Rittenhouse, and head north of the parkway. Some very cool places in Fairmount.

Great location and very friendly staff

I spent 4 nights here and overall an enjoyed it. The location was excellent. Only a few blocks from museums, shopping and the convention center. It is a bit far from Independence Hall, but still walkable and there are other options to get there. The bed was very comfortable, room very clean. I loved the huge closet in our room (not that I had many clothes with me) and used it to change in and iron in. The kitchen was also great to be able to save some money on breakfast and drinks. My only minor complaint was that at night the air would only blow out hot. I was able to crack a window, which helped, but even when set on cool or a specific temperature, the room would get hot. Then it would get too cold with the window open and the air off (end of Oct.). The restaurant, Con Murphys, was also good and every staff member I encountered at the hotel had a smile, was helpful and friendly.

Great place to stay in Philadelphia

My wife and I stayed at The Windsor Suites on the 18th of October and had a great stay. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a hotel offering good value for money, well located and excellent service. We dealt with Zarena at reception who needs to be commended for her excellent customer service and recommendations on things to do in Philadelphia. I would definitely stay there again if I cost Philadelphia again.
