Our expert hotel planners periodically visit and review the hotels we represent in person. This is the most recent visit:
"Philadelphia's Newest and Eco-Friendliest Hotel"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The Home2 Suites by Hilton is downtown Philadelphia’s newest and most Eco-Friendly hotel located next to the PA Convention Center and Reading Terminal Market right in the heart of city. You are only a short walk or cab ride to the historic attractions or museums. The lobby is spacious and very modern with clean lines, to the right is the front desk and left is sitting/breakfast area. Elevators are located in the middle; the indoor saline pool as well a large fitness center with free weights and laundry facilities are also on lobby level. There is a parking garage for hotel guests (additional fee) located right next door, just need to remember your ticket. All guest rooms are Suites either Studio or 1-bedroom with kitchens that have microwave, full fridge, dishwasher, garbage disposal, place settings but no stove; the hotel does have burners available upon request complimentary. Amenities also include comp WIFI, iHome docking station, flat panel TV and sleeper sofas. This is also one of the only pet friendly hotels in downtown Philadelphia. The entire staff was so friendly and helpful that I would recommend this hotel to any traveler whether on business or leisure; perfect for an extended stay or for family travel.

Verified Reviews of Home2 Suites by Hilton Philadelphia Convention Cen

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Boston Group, 10 rooms"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
All occupants of our 10 rooms were polled as to their satisfaction and all responded that the accomodations were excellent. The hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The complimentary breakfast was highly rated by all. Gina Baldino, Sales Coordinator at Home 2 Suites, made sure everything went smooth for us and deserves high marks.

"Generally very good with some staffing issues."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Allowances perhaps for the full house associated with the Flower Show, but two issues : 1. The breakfast bar was overwhelmed each day with items running out early. 2. Also, the recycle containers near the elevators were not emptied for the three nights that we were there. Both suggest a staffing shortage which should have been anticipated. Other than those we were pleased with our stay and would book Home2 again.

"Nice, but could have been better"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Nice accommodations. Better than average breakfast. Very pleasant and helpful staff. However,our parking ticket didn't work and we had to stop exiting traffic, back up out of the way and walk from the 5th floor back to the hotel to get a new parking ticket to get out of the garage. Then, we got a call at 11:30 pm, the night before checkout, which woke us up, to tell us that we need to bring a credit card to checkout the next morning! We already gave them a credit card when we checked in, but apparently, the system didn't keep it. One would think that the front desk staff would know that sleep is the product they are selling and would know not to call at 11:30 pm.

Our 248 suite hotel offers spacious studio and one bedroom suites and complimentary bonuses like the continental breakfast, internet access, fitness facility, and an indoor saline. The hotel was built environmentally friendly with sustainability in mind. We are conveniently located next door to the Pennsylvania Convention Center. We are also across the street from the iconic Reading Terminal Market and easily accessible via public transportation to and from airport on Septa Regional Rail. The Home2 Suites by Hilton is only 2 blocks from Market East Station. There are dozens of renowned restaurants within a short 5 minute walk or less of the hotel, not to mention all the Philadelphia area attractions.

Green Sustainability

Sometimes you can see them and sometimes you can't, but sustainable elements have been incorporated into the design throughout our hotels.The Pool-Our indoor pool is saline-based. We maintain the pools using natural minerals instead of chemicals.Recycling-We reduce waste on property through our convenient recycling collection stations. You'll find these stations in the Oasis and on each floor of the hotel at most locations. We also provide convenient recycling containers in every suite.In Our Kitchen-Only appliances with Energy Star ratings are used in our guest rooms. They use significantly less energy and less water than traditional appliances do.We serve breakfast on real china to keep plastic plates and utensils out ofthe landfills.ECO-FRIENDLY construction materials are used building every Home2 Suites hotel. Including our carpeting, made out of at least 65% recycled material.Smarter Suds-Instead of travel-sized bottles that generate extra waste, you'll find tamper-proof bulk bath amenities in our guest bathrooms. Also, our dual flush toilets use 20% less water than traditional toilets.The Green Goes On-Some of our sustainability efforts are present in places you'd probably never notice. Countertops in the Oasis are made of 85% pre-recycled and 100% post-recycled content. Containers in the breakfast areas are made of recycled glass and renewable bamboo. Our Humanscale® desk chair is made of 98% recycled product. The landscaping around every Home2 Suites™ hotel includes indigenous-only plants, which significantly minimize water usage and irrigation needs.
