    Perfect location to see historic Philadelphia

    The downstairs spa and pool was relaxing and very clean. The staff throughout the hotel was friendly and quick to take care of anything we needed. Even though the valet parking quickly retrieved our car and due to the difficult nature of street parking in Philadelphia, well worth the cost. We had a wonderful time at the Franklin.

    Lovely, spacious rooms across from independence pa

    The location was great--right across from independence park with many other attractions within easy walking distance. We had a great view of the park through two big windows in our room. The staff was very friendly. Although the hot tub was broken and much missed, the spa was otherwise very enjoyable. I particularly appreciated the valet and doorman offering to allow us to park in front of the hotel while we loaded the car with our luggage.

    The drapery partly obscured the great view, and could not be pushed out of the way.

    Last Minute Luck

    We stayed one night and decided to extend our stay for two more nights. The location was perfect - walking distance to historical points of interest in Philadelphia and to the wedding and reception we attended. The room was well appointed with a nice view.

    Nothing.

    Loved everything except restaurant staff. The front desk staff was excellent!

    I tried to call in a pick-up order, and your restaurant staff was rude and didn't put in my order.
