"Wonderful Hotel Experience"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
This is a great place to stay when in Philly. Nice, friendly, helpful front desk staff. Great, informative lobby and front door staff. Clean, renovated rooms with comfortable beds and plenty of amenities. I would definitely recommend this place to friends and family.

"Wrong Credit card charged."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
I sent the hotel a pre authorized credit card a few weeks for a couple of rooms for school employees. The hotel ended up charging the teachers' cards instead and the amounts were over $1500. I have my CC Authorization confirmation of receipt so now I have to call the hotel and have them credit the teachers' cards and charge the correct one.

"Nice hotel. Bad experience."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The hotel I was very nice, clean, etc. but I was not happy with my service experience. When I called before my stay to inquire if it could be cancelled or what it would cost, the representative cancelled the room without me asking her to. Then told me I would be charged one night stay anyway. When I found out about the cost I told her that I didn't want to cancel it then she told me that she already did! She sounded inconvenienced when I told her I never told her to cancel it and that I wanted it back. After being put on hold for 15 minutes she told me that she had the room reinstated. I was quite surprised when I checked in to find out that she did not put me back into a double queen, but into a king room.

"Terrible!"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
When I was leaving, the lady at the desk tried to charge me half a day more asking me when I left the room (the check out is usually automatic). She made me wait and called someone trying to find out when I left. (I left the room at 11:30 and had my bags checked out downstairs). They finally apologized. No customer service. Long wait to check in My car had the driver seat in recline which was bizarre (like if someone slept in it).

Hotel was clean, parking was outrageous! $50 per night, everyone was very nice and helpful. Only issue was I kept having to go back to the desk because my room key wouldn't work.
