  • The on-site restaurants were a delight. The pool closing at 8pm was not. For what we paid…

    Not as advertised

    Room was not what was advertised. Far overpriced. Only positives were friendly staff and roof deck with pool.

  • 2.0.Poor


    This was the absolute worst hotel experience I’ve ever had. Do not stay at this property. The first room I was given was supposed to be a suite. The towel bar literally fell off the wall, the air conditioner was covered in mold and filth, the closet door was hanging on the hinges, dark stains on the chair in the living area…I could go on. I was given a new room for the second night of my stay. The room was supposed to be ready by 12pm. At 5 pm it was finally ready. My daughter and I brought our things to the room and changed to go to the pool. We had nothing but our hotel keys and my daughters phone. The hotel room door battery stopped working, locking our things in our room until 10pm. Management was useless, the front desk staff was flippant and incompetent and the whole hotel is understaffed. The maintenance engineer who helped us get into the room eventually and the valet staff were the only kind, good souls we met here. This was terrible. We were given the rooms for free but honestly, given the disgusting conditions and 6 hours locked out of our room with no clothes, wallet, or car keys was it was not worth the aggravation.

    Your worst nightmare

    One of the worst hotel experiences we've ever had. 1st day we checked we got barged in on because they double-booked someone else in our room. The pool attendant (who said he didn't work for the hotel but was a contractor) threatened to sue us for laying on the edge of the pool. They allowed all sorts of people off the street (not guests) to come party in the pool so it was packed. Our last night the room next to us was having a party w/ lots of screaming kids, slamming doors, running around hallways. When we complained all they did was tell them to turn the music down but the there were still lots of screaming kids well past 10 pm. The internet didn't work, kept getting cryptic error messages. We called twice to complain and they said they would send someone up and never did. They acted like it was our fault, that we didn't have our computer configured correctly (even tho both my wife's and mine computer gave the same message and didn't work for either us), at the end of our visit one of the technicians said the Internet had been down. The bathroom smelled like canned asparagus, their was hardly any pressure in the shower and the tap really unnecessarily hard to figure out.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    Overall, a great stay at The Windsor Suites. Check in was easy, all front desk staff, valet, and housekeeping staff we interacted with were super friendly, helpful, and responsive. Room was very clean and well-appointed, kitchenette had all we needed (didn't do any cooking but we did use dishes, glasses, and fridge for take-out food one night -- all very clean). The kitchen appliances & cabinets are old school but all in fine condition. HUGE closets, we literally used one of them for a dressing room :-) Beds & linens very comfortable. Bathroom is small but updated and great water pressure in the shower. The location is unbeatable for many attractions in Philadelphia, including the Museum of Art, the Rodin Museum, Barnes Collection, City Hall and surrounding plazas, and great shopping/dining. Rittenhouse Square and surrounding shopping/dining/attractions, as well as the Schuykill Banks walking/biking path are walkable if you like to walk. The rooftop pool is smallish but lovely with great seating areas and killer city vistas. Very welcome for the 92+ degree days we were in town! Didn't use the gym but it looked really nice too. Having 2 restaurants on premises seems convenient but we didn't try them. This is an older hotel, some aspects have been updated (bathrooms, hotel decor, pool/gym area), some haven't (kitchenette, closets). But balancing price, location, service, and other attributes, Windsor Suites is a great option in Philly, and I would definitely stay there again.

    Fabulous hotel with rooftop pool

    The service was great. We stayed in a penthouse suite on the same floor as the rooftop pool. It was very clean and updated. There are nice amenities like complimentary Fiji Water and Nespresso Coffee machine in the room. The rooftop pool Is fabulous with a great view of the Basilica. The hotel is also very well situated to great restaurants around abs approaching Rittenhouse Square. I will stay there next time around! Loved it!

    Overall good stay

    Bellman was awesome. Parking attendants/valet service was not. Building was older and could use some updating. Cleaning services are only on request. They were responsive with any requests. Nice rooftop pool. Overall good stay.

  • 6.0.Good

    Potentially dangerous hotel

    Room was set up all wrong. There was a table with 2 chairs (1broken), light was so far away you could not use as a dining space. There was also 1 office chair on wheels (also broken). The bathroom doesn’t have an exhaust fan. The water was extremely hot. Be careful in the kitchenette, no exhaust over the stove. When we opened the dishwasher pieces of wood came out. Marble around the bathroom sink was broken. They claimed to have parking, found out after check in the cost is $25.00 per day. No maid service, no trash removal, etc. Asked for wake up call… never happened. All in all I would definitely NOT RECOMMEND this hotel.
