    Shady hotel staff, choose another hotel

    I paid for a deluxe room and the front desk repeated that I booked a deluxe king but instead placed me in a room with doors connected to another room. The next room was extremely noisy and at 6 am I couldn’t take it any longer and had to request a different room. I moved from the 15th floor to the 20th floor and that’s when I realized this was my original room. Much nicer room, better shower, cleaner and more spacious. I felt if I never complained I would be stuck in a room I did not pay for and that extremely shady of the staff!! Also Walls are paper thin, I was on the 20th floor and still heard sirens so imagine everybody that passed my room door. I could have stayed at the Marriott as I usually do but I thought this was a good hotel, appearance from outside is great and misleading but don’t do it stick to the better hotel chains.

    Can't wait to come back

    My friend and i had an amazing time. Staff was super friendly. Its in a great area with many stores and restaurants around. Im already trying to plan a trip to come back with my kids. 6 minute ride in a cab from the amtrack station. Mutter museum is literally a 6 minute walk... and if you're planning om coming between June August bring your bathing suits! Pool is open. They also have 1 washing and 1 drying to wash your swimsuits afterwards. You just need quarters which the front desk can help you out with.

    3 stars for this 3-star hotel

    Overall it's an OK hotel, and it's understandable that some services are shrunk during covid-19. While considering to the price, $169 including parking, I feel like I'm paying for a bed in downtown, with almost no service at all.

    Overall enjoyable and great location

    Daily housekeeping needs to resume. Also we were told incorrectly that the laundry facilities on the 8th floor worked with a card which it did not. Quiet and comfort were very good!!
