The free airport shuttle was nice and very timely. Nothing really around the hotel though. It was very noisy all night I could hear people wheeling their luggage in and out of rooms. I was right beside the stairwell so everything felt amplified.

The hotel is located not far from Penns Landing and great view of the Jersey shore and the Ben Franklin bridge. During the wintertime it appears that the area is quiet and not much tourist activity going on, but I suspect that during the warmer months that the area can be very busy. Getting to the property by using public...

It's not located in downtown philly but if you have a car it's next to I-95 and Ben Franklin bridge. Parking is $30. Front desk is courteous. Clean corridors and smells nice. We had a nice size corner room with the view of the bridge. Free bkft from 6-10am. Use to be a Comfort Inn

I was there for just one night, but it was very nice. The people who worked there were friendly. There is parking, however, there is a fee to park there. That was the only downside to this hotel. However, I would stay there again. Beds were comfortable, breakfast was good, hotel was clean and the people were nice. :)
