This hotel is great! The staff is of similar quality to a 5-star hotel. I was there for over a week and they were always very pleasant and helpful in making my experience so good. The hotel is very clean and they take great care of the property and the rooms. The bathroom was exceptionally clean and the shower had great pressure and never an issue with no hot water or anything. The free continental breakfast was a great way to start the day - cereal, yogurt, muffins, bagels, oatmeal, juice, and coffee. Also, there was free wireless internet that was very reliable and I never had a problem with it. Travelling on business, these free amenities were a great addition. The location is fabulous - it is literally next to the convention center (less than a 2 minute walk). The hotel is a block away from Reading Terminal market and the subway station. There are a lot of restaurants close by and only a few blocks away from the Art Museum and other Philly attractions. Other reviewers mentioned the homeless shelter; yes there is a shelter 2 doors down but there is not an issue at all. They don't disturb passer-byers and after 5pm when the shelter is closed, there is no one around outside so safety is no issue. This hotel is HIGHLY recommended and I would come back here in a heartbeat.
