6/10 Good

Way too noisy
Great location center of city. A/C goes on and off and roars so loud, I just turned it off and dealt with the warm room. Cheap no frills interior with satisfactory bed. Shower pressure is very weak. There is no maintenance person. The app says they will be coming, but they never do. Worst is the outside noise. I was high up and in back (no view) which one would think would be more quiet. You hear everything on the Main Street late night, and a bar blasts music like clockwork at midnight. They need to soundproof their windows. Would stay again only if all else in same area was booked.

There was hair in the shower and on the duvets. Not all lights worked. The fan was very loud. A/C didn't stay steady. Great location!

Large room in bar scene in Philly
Hotel room was very spacious and comfortable with sitting room, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. Bed was platform and matress comfortable. Kitchen was excellent. Sitting room seating was comfortable, tv was roku, no cable. Bathroom was spacious, shower was nice. Only issue was noise of ac fan running and noise from bars around the neighborhood after 10pm until 3am. If you are used to big city noise, not a problem. Even on 7th floor. Would stay here again when in Philly.

Great stay.
I brought my mother to Philadelphia. She is in a wheelchair. I was a little worried at first bc the wheelchair entrance needs attention but everything else is perfect and I would not have known the back entrance needed attention if I’d not brought her.

Comfort and Location
Great stay. Check in was great. Loads of space in the unit. Very comfortable. Bed slopes a bit from middle out. Other people mentioned noise. The noise never bothered us. Wish tne bedroom had more light. Location was perfect. Did a lot of walking. If you are into breakfast like me, try Bill’s right across the street. Great value. Would stay at Witherspoon in a heartbeat and recommend to anyone.
