Negative Reviews


No Rooftop Refreshments

Guests love the seasonal rooftop pool but say they're disappointed the hotel has no poolside food or bar service. They also comment that the view from the pool is not particularly attractive. Some suggest sprucing the area up with a mural or more plants to distract from the parking garage across the street.


Expensive Parking

Parking is at a premium in downtown Philadelphia and some guests bristle at the overnight parking fee at the hotel. There are parking garages nearby, but parking in general downtown will be expensive.


Unreliable Wi-Fi

Wi-Fi here is free but some guests report problems getting and staying online. Some say service is sporadic and depends upon where your room is located.
