Frustrating Check In Experience
Everything was great except for check in. An hour before arriving I called the hotel to confirm my booking and was told everything was all set and they would see me shortly. When I arrived I was told the two queen beds room wasn’t available yet and that there was no time frame they could give me as to when it would be (??). They offered to put me in a room with a king bed, but there was five guests. The front desk man told me it could be 30 minutes for the room or I could not get the room at all. This was extremely frustrating because I had no idea what to do. I have never had this type of issue with any other hotels. I had even called ahead to confirm and was told the booking was confirmed just an hour before arriving. Front desk personnel then received a phone call that the proper room was ready for us. It was unnecessary stress that I wish did not occur. There was no discount for the inconvenience.

thumbs up
Considering the limitations of the Covid era, and limited services our stay was very comfortable, location is excellent and all staff we interacted with were friendly, helpful and professional. I would definitely choose this hotel on my next trip to philly.

Good 6.0
great hotel, great location, horrible staff
Staff was terrible. Tainted the whole day. Especially joy and a particularly nasty and unhelpful lady with braids that was working the front desk when I left. Great location and very nice hotel. But staff is trash. They all need to be fired. I don’t know if Philly people are just rude and unhelpful or if these two were just the worst but I’ll be sure to ask if they still have crappy customer service before I stay here again. Shame too, because everything else was nice.
