Good location. The hotel was renovating at the time, and I woke up to the sounds of construction! There was no mention of this at all on booking.com - I would've liked to know before booking that there's work being done there. I'm sure it will be fine once done, but still. Hotel staff were okay, but not particularly warm.
Good check in person Internet service
We only stayed for a night so did not get to take advantage of the beautiful lobby with many seating areas from high tops to cozy couches. Somehow it felt very open yet very homey and welcoming at the same time. Beautiful quiet neighborhood. Very friendly staff. The heater in our room sounded like a mini-explosion every time it kicked on. The walls were paper thin. We were wakened by two female voices and two babies at 7:30 am. I would have sworn they were in our room.
Location was awesome. Staff was friendly. Terrible TV...too small and very blurry. Food menu was weak...not enough variety and over priced for the quality. Should not have had to pay an extra 30.00 for one nights parking...outrageously over priced and a very sneaky added expense.
The hotel had a great feel when you walked in. It looked very clean and modern. When we arrived Saturday afternoon, there was no doorman to help with the bags. I ended up running into someone when I went to get a cart who was hanging out at the front desk talking. Also I was putting a stroller and there wasn't anyone to assist with holding the door open. Lastly, there were 2 weddings going on. From our room, we could hear the DJ until past 11:30 at night which isn't ok when you have small children and if you are a light sleeper.
Very close to the historical sites, restaurants and Penn's Landing. Very friendly and helpful staff. Having access to the Club Lounge was very convenient to get breakfast or a drink to go. Only valet parking available. Getting used to the noise of the heat/Air conditioning unit turning on and off. It was very quiet while it was running, just the starting and stopping noise that might wake you up if you aren't use to sounds.
Confortable, near city attractions, car stayed at valet parking all the time, good relaxing swiming pool.
Comfortable beds, nice lobby with Starbucks coffee, continental breakfast, late room service, within walking distance to many things and short cab ride to airport
Room fab! Parking fee was ridiculous!
Access to historical sites and great restaurants
I liked the privacy though the hotel was full. There was not a refrigerator in the room and the ice bucket was undersized. The wedding guests in the lobby were too loud, they should be contained in a private area. The valet service did not retrieve my car in 15 minute time slot. It took took 35 minutes and I had to ask for my car twice.
Room was comfortable and clean. Lobby was decorated beautifully for the holidays and kept well updated in design and comfort, many sofas to relax, semi private sitting rooms to relax and converse, all with a warm, inviting feel. No fridge in rooms.
Parking closeby (self- or value) / nice view over the haven / restaurant was good (but to cold inside) with nice food the unfriendly bellman (or valet - parking guy) in front of the hotel. he should let the Guests get out the car and not open the door while the car is still in motion...
Great location, fun park right outside. Great staff & fantastic room!
great pool & buffet breakfast
I love the energy from the staff to even the parking attendants. The pool was phenomenal and the breakfast was amazing. definitely a hotel to visit again when in the Phila I hope to visit the penns landing Hilton family again soon Parking was expensive I ended up using street parking across the street and paying for the meter.
Paying $30+ for parking that should have been included
I really didn't know what we had gotten ourselves into until we arrived. We were pleasantly surprised. This is the perfect location and is close to everything. There is an adorable little park right outside that has cute little events all summer long. I can't imagine staying anywhere else. Oh and did I mention the view??? Amazing!
The staff at the front desk were exceptional and extremely helpful. The doorman and valet were amazing providing information about the city and transportation. The restaurant and bar were horrible! Service was slow and overwhelmed but they tried hard to provide service. Our burgers were not cooked properly. My burger was burned and my fiancé asked for medium rare and got well done. We sent it back and the burgers still were pathetic and not good. We ate them anyway we were starving after traveling all day. Later that evening after returning from dinner out and a bit of shopping we went to the bar for a night cap and waited 20 minutes before anyone even spoke to us and then another 20 minutes to get a simple captain and Coke and a lemonade -- needless to say we walked out!
Profesional and friendly staff. Parking way too expensive. 44 per night for valet and 32 to park yourself but gotta take 3 elevators and various walkways to get to your car.
Rooms were nice, clean and comfortable. Hotel overall appearance was good and stylish. Parking rates were outrageous. The bar was terrible and the drinks overpriced. I know the main restaurant/bar was closed for renovations, which explains the awkward positioning of the bar, but the prices for drinks were way too high given the bartender quality and overall market positioning which is heavily influenced by the bartender. Drinks were priced about 30% higher than they should have been, especially given the fact that I had to explain to the bartender how to make a simple drink like an old fashioned. Huge fail in an area where there are too many alternatives.
Location Small room and no facilities at a price that is equal to Sheraton and Hilton level hotels
Location, Staff, Lounge, Room, Breakfast.
The hotel was located in a great location. My boyfriend and I liked the fact that we were able to walk to most of the famous sites around town and we both enjoyed the friendly staff. I checked the website before booking the hotel and I was shown a larger room. I was disappointed with the size of the room and felt like I was given false information and paid alot for a very small room.
Convenience to area
The hotel location is excellent. It was within a short walking distance to many of the area attractions. Having a very nice breakfast in the hotel was a delightful way to start the mornings. The breakfast room reminded me of a hotel in Rome, Italy. It would be nice to have a mirror over the desk in the bedroom so one could be dressing, applying makeup, etc while the bathroom is being used.
What a great hidden gem in Penn's Landing area of Philly...this boutique hotel has a lot of history and beauty and is in a great location for walking to historic downtown sites parking can be bit of an issue but we used the lot beside the hotel and the staff was helpful in parking and getting us out
The only good things were that the bed was good, the spa tub worked and the staff was courteous. No microwave, no coffee pot, the mini fridge wasn't plugged in then gurgled all night, every time another door on the level opened our door jostled, the toilet seat was peeling,there was no menu in the book like it says it should be rough sheets and robes
The location of this cute boutique hotel was perfect. We were able to take quick walks to all the major sites in Old City.

Room was very clean and had a lot of old building character, (both good and not so good). Beds were comfortable. Location was great, close to nightlife. Staff interaction was minimal but pleasant. Parking not as expensive as other area hotels. Definitely has old building quirks - very small hallways and stairways, slow elevator. The walls are thin, so you can hear your neighbor come & go as well as get in the shower (or anything else more than moderately loud.) Nothing terrible though.
The location was perfect. The hotel was different- loved that it was different from every chain hotel. The room was very small.
Location and cozy, old fashioned atmosphere Staff did not make up room at all over the weekend. We had to ask for more towels and a shower liner.
Hotel was perfect distance to everything we needed.I will definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Philly. Room was a hint small, but we were really only there to sleep. Would have been nice to have a mini fridge, but again, not the end of the world.
It was very clean and the on-site restaurant was excellent. Very well located for the historic sites. No in-room coffee maker!!! For the love of God!
Breakfast really to simple.

The fact that the have events every night,making more easy to talk to the people how are in the hostel.
Front desk staff were very helpful in supplying directions and ideas of what to see. In the historical district. Bed and room were comfortable. Pub/bar next door is generally not that noisy except for one night pre-Halloween when it was extremely noisy. Liked having a washer/dryer - it really helped as travelling light. Grocery store around corner is open late. Easy to get to via train from airport. Or cab is about $30 (used this for early morning flight on return). Bathroom could use a bit more cleaning but it was clean enough. Bit far from rest of downtown but subway provides easy access or you can walk. Streets in area deserted if walking home late at night - recommend take subway (stop is only a block away) or take a cab.
I felt this place was very laid back with a hip set up as well as staff. I got the feel this was a alternative dorm for the neighborhood!! Lack of privacy...... yet, i didnt have to stay there either!! :)
Very nice personnel. Location is very good. Perfect place for budget staying for 1-5 days in Philadelphia.
I liked the helpfulness of the staff and the location of the hostel no negative emotions whatsoever
Downtown Philadelphia, old city district. Very nice personnel, cheap rates. no
Male dorm smelled strongly of mildew
the location was perfect for seeing the city it was quite loud, the payment process is sketchy (pay at a convenience store down the street)
I loved their location and the vintage feel the old building gave. It would have been great to get an idea of the history of the building and why it was still standing after so many years.
Location was perfect in the Olde City of Phildelphia. One block away from Independence hall. You can hear everything, the wall were thin.
For the location, the price is pretty good This hotel is a dump. Some people call it character, but that's nonsense. You don't automatically get to say something has character just because it's in an old building. Dirty carpets, broken down beds, busted blinds, missing ceiling tiles, leftover dirty laundry from previous guests, showers that don't drain, and a staff that's only there a third of the day are not "character" features. They're poor maintenance issues. Don't go here unless you're strapped for cash and plan on spending very little time in the room
Nothing The rooms do not match the pictures what so ever. The bed for sure had to have bed bugs and the restroom had roaches. I didn't even stay for a few hours before I left. Reminded me of a room out of AHS.
This was one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed at!! The room was unclean, cramped, paint peeling off the walls, mold in the bathroom and not cleaned until we complained. No elevator!
The location of this hotel is about the only good thing I can say. It's right in Old City and just about anything you could want to do is within walking distance. They were very misleading about the size and the amenities. Our "seating area" was a wooden chair. It was not very clean. The worst part though was the mouse that was sharing our room... Very disappointed in this hotel. Will not be back. Ever.
The location was in the heart of the Old City District. The room was very small and did not seem to fit the rate.
Very loud music from restaurant downstairs
