"Nearest to Hamilton's Bank of the U.S."
Great hotel, welcoming and helpful staff, clean rooms, historic area just a few yards away from the original location of the office of our Nation's first Secretary of the Treasury and indispensable Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, the First Bank of the U.S., and the Museum of the American Revolution. Located on the same street as Independence Hall, […] Carpenter's Hall, and the Second Bank of the U.S., housing a marvelous Peale and Sharples exhibit! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The rooms need to be updated. The floors creak and the lights are old and dim. The bed was extremely old and didn't have much spring left in it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"hotel stay excellent"
wish the queen bed was a little bigger. but great hotel in a good location. parking charges are extra $19Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel we stayed was at the center of all important sightseeing spots like Independance hall, Liberty Bell and Congress Hall. The stay was comfortable and the bkfast was awesome. The problem which i faced (only me) the a/c was a bit noisy.... But i loved historic room designs!!! Worth the money!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Customer service was impeccable but the musty smell in the hallway and room lowered my overall satisfaction of the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything was adequate except the mattress on the bed which we mentioned to the manager. We were in room 105 and the mattress was like a five hundred pound person had laid in the middle of it for months.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Best location for all must-see sights."
Everything to see was within a few blocks of the hotel. The staff is very helpful. We enjoyed eating in the historic City Tavern just around the corner.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Was right in heart of centre city so not bad location if u plan to move around during your stay. Parking isnt $19, its $24 if ur not leaving until after 6 am like we were but that's no big deal. The hot breakfast was a plus and the staff was very friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is located in a historic building, so the rooms are small judged by newer standards. Otherwise, it is a fine hotel. The staff is friendly and helpful, rooms are clean. The hotel is located in the old city, quite close to many tourist attractions. The breakfast menu: hot/cold cereal, scrambled eggs, sausage links, waffles, cup cakes, fruit […] .

"Perfect historic location"
We visit Philly often but this is the first time we have stayed in the Old City. It was a delight. Historic small hotel, friendly helpful staff, good complimentary breakfast, comfy lobby with fireplace, cookies & tea in the afternoon. Only complaint was the bell on the elevator, it rings way too much! Fortunately our room was not near it. We will definitely […] stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel for sight seeing in Philly"
I gave this as a gift to my son and daughter in law. They loved the hotel, the location and the breakfast. The only complaint was that the bed was lumpy and springy. THey did not sleep well. Seem like the beds need an upgrade. She was sliding toward the middle. It was a one bed room so no choice but to sleep in the same bed. They were trying to get […] a good nights sleep as they are parents of an infant (I was watching baby) and that wasn;'t really accomplished. Other than that, highly recommended for location, ambiance and helpful staff. I told them they should have asked if any other bedroom was available with a better bed?

"Philly on a budget"
Lovely hotel, walking distance to both the piers and the historical sites of the city...staff couldn't be nicer or more helpful! The room seems a little small, but as we spent very little time in it, wasn't a deal breaker for us...my only issue with the room was a winged insect (couldn't identify, but similar to a moth, only larger) on our wall--I killed […] it myself, and didn't bother mentioning it to the staff as it was a big deal for me, but may be for others.

"An excellent stay!"
It was very classy, the breakfast was a delight, and I hope to stay here again in the near future.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I stayed here overnight for an interview in Philadelphia. No insight parking was a minor inconvenience, however, there was a parking garage nearby with reasonable rates though no in-out privileges. The staff of the hotel was absolutely outstanding! They were very helpful and accommodating, in addition to being extremely nice and helpful. The room was […] clean with a comfortable bed, which is really all I needed it to be. The bathroom had been nicely updated, and there were many conveniences such as free-wi-fi, as well as a free breakfast and afternoon tea (which unfortunately I was not able to take advantage of, though there was always complimentary coffee available). I enjoyed my stay at the hotel and had no major issues, and would certainly stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent hotel in a great neighborhood"
Located in the heart of historical district. Close to attractions and great clubs I felt comfortable in the hotel and walking around at night in a safe neighborhood Very reasonable rate for all that.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location in Philly"
The hotel was in a perfect location for access to the riverfront and Independence Park. The staff was knowledgeable about local restaurants and sights and very willing to help. We were there on New Year's Eve and were treated to champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries in the lobby. With the backdrop of the Christmas tree and fireplace, it was very […] pleasant. We will recommend it to friends and will stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The staff was very friendly and made us feel at home from the first night. The continental breakfast was excellent. The room was a bit small but cozy and homey. The hotel was within walking distance from many small shops and restaurants. The lobby had the feel of old town Philadelphia. Great stay! Very pleased.Genuine Expedia guest review
The property is located within the historic district of Philly, and features all of the basic amenities needed for a few days visit. The front desk staff at both check in and check out were efficient, pleasant, and most helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was advertised as having in room safes; it does not. One day they were using power drills and sanders in the room next door, in the wall right behind our bed. Maintenance does not check nor was maintenance concerned about having the rooms next door occupied. The front desk, at 10 pm, offered another room, but by that time the work was completed. […] It was our last night, and we passed on the room change. The hotel was nice, but they have serious issues to address with maintenance staff. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

First night there after waling the town we fell asleep and woke up after 10:30PM Too late to go out Staff gave us information where to call for room service and open the closet to allow us some hot tea and snack while we waited for our food to arrive.

"Pleasing hotel in the heart of History"
Big shift after staying at a full-service chain the night prior. The lack of some of the conveniences of a full service hotel ( like an in- house restaurant) were offset by the ambience and historical value of the Independence Park. Staff very helpful. Good location.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, no problems"
It's a great little historic hotel in a terrific location. You can walk to everything and even the parking service was reasonable (though I didn't have a car). Staff was very warm and helpful. Lovely free breakfast in a nice light filled room. Would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was great! The beds were comfortable. The breakfast was very good and the location was great for all the things we wanted to see downtown.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The only issues I found with the hotel was the fact that the elevator was a little slow, and the mattress in the room we were staying in needed to be replaced. Other than those two very minor issues, the hotel was nice, in a great location, and very clean which is very important to me.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location to walk to all the sights"
Hotel is designated a historic building and situated in the Old City. Great restaurants, bars and stores are all around. Only a couple of blocks to the Liberty Bell. A little pricey but very nice overall.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Small but great staff and close to everything"
TINY room, but since we didn't spend too much time in the room, that didn't really matter. My wife and I took a short weekend trip to Philly and this was the perfect place - it's within walking distance to a ton of great restaurants and bars (and the 8th and Market Septa and Patco train lines). The staff at the front desk was super nice and made us […] feel comfortable right off the bat. We'll definitely be back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great boutique hotel in a wonderful location!"
Great boutique hotel in a wonderful location! It's just far enough away from the historic sites that the streets are quiet and not crowded, but still walking distance to many sites. Also in walking distance are a variety of eateries - everything from local pubs to very nice restaurants. Two of my favorites were Barra and Fork. Also, the complimentary […] breakfast was excellent and the staff was very friendly. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
It was enjoyable but I was surprised that the TV service did not have CNBC or Bloomberg. Or, for that matter, any business stations.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good location in the historic district"
Title says it all... hotel was nice, staff were very helpful. Climate control was nice in the room - much better than having a loud AC unit on the exterior wall.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"More like a B & B"
The rooms are smaller but adequate in size. They are so fresh and clean and the beds are so comfortable! The breakfast was great and tea and cookies in the afternoon was divine! The elevator is a little slow but not bad for a 150+ YEARS old place!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great hotel for downtown Philly"
Very nicely located for walking tourism of Independence Hall, Ben Franklin Park, Washington park, Philadelphia mint, Federal reserve, Betsy Ross House, Ben Franklin grave, Penn's Landing, and many other great places to visit. Many good restaurants and pubs with a couple blocks. Museum ships Olympia, and submarine USS Becuna at Penn's landing, are very […] interesting with the most impressive being the New Jersey in Camden New Jersey. One can take a ferry to the New Jersey and back to Penn's Landing. I recommend the fire power tour aboard the New Jersey and plan a half day for this trip and plenty of photo storage for your cameras. A great historic little hotel!

"Comfortable hotel in nice neighborhood"
I booked the hotel at the last minute because I needed to be in the city for the evening and didn't want to drive, so I just booked the most reasonable hotel that was closest to where I needed to be. For anyone looking to explore the old part of Philadelphia, this is an excellent choice. I was so pleasantly surprised with my quick booking. The front […] desk staff was very friendly and helpful and the room was clean and bed extremely comfortable. The breakfast was perfectly acceptable. I would stay here again.

"Best Western and July 4th . . .great combo!"
GREAT location for hotel. In the middle of all the action, July 4th parade, Independence Mall, Double decker buses, etc.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
There was no housekeeping service done the first night. No reason given to why this was not done, The hotel too focused on charging you for minor supplemental items. Too much penny watching.Genuine Expedia guest review
Excellent location, excellent reception staff!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay in the old town historic area!"
The hotel was really nice and clean. It was also very quiet. There was a thermostat in each room so you can control the coolness. The bathroom was larger than most hotels. The breakfast was sausage and scrambled eggs, or waffels you make yourself on a waffel iron. All types of juice, coffee, and cereal available. The breakfast was hot and very good […] at no extra charge. The only problem was the parking for the car. The parking garage is over a block away. It is $15.00 per day. You don't want to take the car out much because you can't find a place to park in the city, unless it is in a parking garage. The best form of travel is walking, bus, tour bus, or taxi for the traveler. The hotel is near most of the historic things you want to see anyway. I would return to this hotel and would recommend it highly. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay!!!"
Excellent place to stay. Thoroughly enjoyed the hotel, atmosphere, and location.Very relaxing atmosphere at the hotel. Lots of variety of interesting and good places to eat and enjoy nearby.

"Close to highlights of Philly, romantic too"
We enjoyed the proximity of this hotel to many sights, eateries, bars, parks. It was perfect for our romantic getaway/history tour. I live in PA but my boyfriend is from England and we were able enjoy the city in one of the prettiest neighbourhoods while having a very clean, comfortable and affordable home base. The hot breakfast buffet was great ( […] he's still talking about the waffles) as a start to busy days. We will definitely stay again and we highly recommend this hotel where the staff( front desk, breakfast, cleaning) are friendly, helpful and really attentive. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Hotel is run down. Furniture is beat up. Wall paper bubbling and old. Lamp shades smell of 20 year cigarette smoke. I think they are on the last hoorah and play on the fact they are in a historic building.Genuine Expedia guest review
