The location could not be better. It's a ten-minute walk to Independence Hall and mere steps to wonderful restaurants. The hotel staff could not have been friendlier. They upgraded our room at their insistence, were extremely helpful with advice about the city.The room was beautiful and the extra bedroom made it that much more relaxing for the family. They let...

My husband and I selected the Rodeway Inn based on its close proximity to the Thomas Jefferson Hospital. It turned out that it was far more than convenience that made our stay so enjoyable. First of all: great kudos to the cleaning staff. Even though it is not a fancy new hotel, our room was clean and the linens were...

The staff was always warm and welcoming. The location was excellent and everything was well kept. The accommodations were nice for the price. My keycard stopped working a couple of times, but that was an easy fix. Thanks to Brian, Mark, and Kamar!

The Rodeway Inn Center City is a cozy hotel nestled right into the thick of things in Philly. There are countless food options in all price ranges within 2-3 blocks, several of which are open 24 hours. Shopping at a Target Express for any necessities you may have forgotten to pack is less than a 5 minute walk, as are...

This was the worst hotel experience of my life. What I was hoping to be a cheap, convenient stay turned into one of the most unprofessional, shady business interactions I've ever experienced. I booked my stay over 2 months ago for a conference I was attending. About a week before my trip I received a phone call stating the room...

When I read this review I almost assumed it came to the wrong hotel but some items make it seem like us. All I can say is that I am sorry. I train the staff and this behavior like this is not tolerable. Please call me to discuss. Brian K., Manager (215) 546-7000

This is our go-to spot to stay in Philadelphia. We love the location and the unique character of the building. The staff have always been very friendly and helpful. There are tons of wonderful restaurants and shops nearby, parking is just across the street and it always feels very safe.

We arrived at Philadelphia around 7 in the morning not having a clue where to stay. We started checking every hotel we could find on the map. We just needed a place to crash for a few hours.
