Great location!
Pros: Great location, instructions, and stay. This hotel is a walk away from everything. The rooms were clean and modern. Plus, it felt like home. Cons: Very noisy area, it is across from a night club, and right off the main streets where emergency vehicles frequent. Plus, there’s major construction going on next door as wells. However, the noise didn’t deter me from giving this place high ratings. I really enjoyed my stay.

A few discomforts keep this from perfect score
First for the discomforts of note. The king bed is just too big for the bedroom it is in; you have to shimmy between the bed and the wall. The chair in the living room looks cool but is not very comfortable at all. The couch is not very comfortable either; the covering is slick and the cushions push apart. (It is a fold out bed.) Our checkin was not great. I found out after I arrived at the building that I should have received an email with an apartment number and door code. The person at the front desk of the building (which is combo regular apartments and daily rentals) told us to call the Stay Alfred Guest Services to get help. I was on hold for 10 minutes before talking to a human. So I called back again and chose the option that indicated I wanted to make a new reservation and got a service rep who then routed me directly to the folks who deal with existing reservations. It took a long time to resolve the issue but we eventually got into our room. The instructions for wifi were not in book, on site or in app. So I had to call Guest Services and be on hold again just to find out the wifi password. On the good side, the kitchen was well stocked with dishware and utensils. Place was very very clean. We were on the 15th floor so the view was awesome at night.

Poor 2.0
Loud AF! Terrible windows.
Our unit (1201)was so ridiculously loud and could it was unbearable. The company who rents these (Stay Alfred) claims no responsibility for any of the issues we had. Their response was check out early. Poor! I lived in NYC for 15 years and never have I experienced noise like that at night ever. You might as well have slept outside, it was that loud! Never again!

Exceptional 10.0
Beautiful room with a tremendous amount of space and incredible price. There were four of us who stayed in this room and it truly was the perfect size. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms and enough space for the kitchen and living room. There also was a beautiful wrap around balcony that you can peer from through the windows. I'm so happy we chose to stay here! It was a little noisy at night as you are in center city but not noisy enough to keep us awake. Would stay again and recommend to anyone looking for a nice stay in center city at a good price!

Beautiful condo
The condo is absolutely beautiful!!! Check in was alittle bit of a hassle. The only thing I recommend is to get curtains in the bedrooms . We had a late night out and we were woken up at 6 am because it was so bright in there.

Stay away
We were emailed the wrong room information and only found out after trying to enter the occupied room. They have no staff on-site, so you have to call the 1-800 number. The shower handle fell off, the fitness center was under renovation. The worst part was hearing ALL the outside noise, we live in DC so I am used to traffic noise, etc. It literally sounded as if the vehicles were right beside us, instead of us being on the 8th floor.

Great home away from home
It was very nice. We like staying at Stay Alfred rather than a hotel. Thank you.

Good 6.0
lacking in services
Most of the door people were polite but service was limited. I could not get my internet working for almost the entire one week trip even though I had complained about this. No one ever brought down new coffee cups so I didn't get to use the nice looking machine. Room was large, clean and comfortable however.

a pleasant surprise.
I didn't know what to expect when I saw the listing for Stay Alfred, but they've got a new customer for sure now. I don't usually need room service or any valet service when I travel, so the product they offer works perfectly for me. If you're looking to save money, and get a HUGE space to live in when travelling, absolutely check out stay Alfred.

Stay Alfred, downtown Philadelphia.
The room was sweltering when I entered. I had to figure out how to operate the central AC and it took hours before the temp dropped to a comfort level. On Day 2, I returned to my room and found that my room was not made up, nor the towels changed. I was told there was no housekeeping services! So the litter collected and the towels decorated the floor of the bathroom. I had no idea how to dispose the trash, and there were no extra garbage bags.The light above the washbasin mirror, and another one by the washer would not work. Mild inconvenience. On my last day I requested an extension of my check out time, which was politely denied, stating there was someone checking in the same day. Check out time is 11am and check in 3pm. Even an extension of 1 hour would have helped me with my work, but that is something I cannot complain about. But 4 hours to clean up a room for the next guest? Overall the room, furnishing and utilities were great. Location was a big plus. The front desk staff were very courteous.
