Location is perfect for shopping and eating. Room was quiet, clean and comfortable. Staff were warm, welcoming and helpful. Loved the slippers, thick towels and soft sheets. Lanvin bath products - wow! Nothing. I would easily stay here again if I can find a good rate.
Everyone was friendly, my room was rather large and I enjoyed the ambience. My room was mainly clean but I felt like certain surfaces needed another wipe.
I love all the little extras that the Sofitel in Philadelphia provides… Waters that you don't pay for and offers of more water on request. A really comfortable chair to sit at at the desk, multiple outlets for electronic things, a good blow dryer, a fabulous bed for comfort, great decorating and design that is amazing. I love the amazing service and delicious food like the squash soup that Sofitel offers in their dining area. I appreciated that when I asked about my boarding pass being printed out Anthony from the front desk immediately went there and did it within 30 seconds for me. The staff, from the maid service to the front desk to the waitresses to the hostess to the Bellman, are all incredibly friendly warm helpful but appropriate.
Had a prepaid reservation for Sofitel and arrived a day late due to a family emergency. I did not have time to call the previous day and when I arrived the manager said they had cancelled my reservation, charged me for one day and that he 'would help me find another hotel.' Pathetic, at least could have called me before they cancelled my reservation. Never stay at the Philadelphia Sofitel again.
They found and provided a mailing tube for us so that we could pack a poster and didn't have to mail it home. I little pricier than I would have liked.
The whole staff is professional and friendly. When they say hello,good morning or ask how your stay is going, it's all sincere. It doesn't sound like a chore or they're just doing their job, they really care!
Te walls are paper thin. You can hear what everyone is doing around you.
The Sofitel in Philadelphia is in a great location. It has beautifully appointed rooms, and the staff are gracious and warm. Typically, I feel very comfortable in any room I stay in. However this time, the air conditioner didn't work properly, and the shower didn't drain properly. It did dampen my enjoyment of the hotel.
I booked my stay with the Sofitel through Kayak and the hotel reservations staff completely LOST my pre-paid reservation. After I thought I had resolved this issue, the hotel staff charged me AGAIN for the reservation because the check out staff was different than the staff I worked with to check in. The staff does not communicate with each other. I will never book a room with this hotel again.
Love the hotel and the location. The bar was nice and the French fries late night were amazing. Met an old friend in Philly for one evening. We had a great day in the city, a wonderful dinner and retired to the room at eight PM to get reacquainted. At 10:15 we had a hotel staff member knock on our door to tell us we had noise complaints and to keep it down!!! There was also a note under our door say pleas keep it down the walls are very thin!!! Really??? 10:15??? And they want Philly to be known for the city of LOVE but only if you whisper! Disappointed the staff actually came up to tell me that. I will not be staying there again if I am doing anything but sleeping!
The staff and service were impeccable.
There were many stains on mattresses, Knicks on walls and doors, bedside glasses were not cleaned/replaced each day, gym was filthy with sweat stains on machines and equipment and floor. This hotel is desperately in need of an upgrade/remodel
The suite was very nice and clean, the staff excellent...
The room was very comfortable. The location is great. the price was very reasonable and the staff very nice. The room was a little bit noisy during evenings and nights. I think it would be nice to put double glazing.
Location and high quality of the appartment
Comfortable hotel, nice neighbourhood, in the city center
We loved the comfort of the king size bed. Having a kitchen gave us the opportunity to cook in or bring back leftovers to reheat in the oven or microwave. My husband could watch TV in the livingroom while I had the TV in the bedroom. We could not find any reason not to stay there again. The location was perfect for our appointments and the comfort of the room was fantastic.
I found my studio to be well appointed and comfortable. The location is excellent and the hotel staff are friendly and helpful. There was a lot of street noise (people partying) up until about 2:30am and I wonder if somehow there could have been better sound insulation. A minor point is that there was no dish drainer.
Stellar hotel and concept that leaves out all the things you don't need or want -- like a crappy hotel restaurant and bar -- to focus on the things you do: great, comfortable spaces and design. The staff is fun and informed and very helpful. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Philly now that I know about the AKA. The cab driver (and many others in the city) don't know about it. I got dropped off the the Rittenhouse Square hotel juts across the square. No biggie, just make rue you're at the right place.
This is the best place to stay in Pholadelphia, perfect location, perfect staff.
James (on the desk) was a great help to us ; we were also able to negotiate a fee comparable to a different facility. It is expensive but in a great location and has large rooms. I hope to stay there again. the breakfast is very basic. Yoghurt and a muffin! some of the desk staff were much less helpful whilst others went out of their way to make sure we were well cared for.
The room was spacious and quiet. The reception area is very airy, bright, luxurious, and welcoming. The bar food is good. No grab bar in the shower, inside a tub. Toilet paper holder was behind me on the wall.
Flexible staff, location. Needs rennovation, loud AC.
The location was very good, very central and near to a shopping area, and near where my friends lived.
Clean, friendly Expensive, not as many amenities as other hotels up the street
Location Bathroom small, no place to hang towels
Great bar with friendly staff and very good food. It was enjoyable to hang out there after a day of seeing the sites. Rooms seem a bit dated, and there was no safe in the room.
Front desk people were cooperative.Nice central location for shopping, and seemed a nice neighborhood. Food smell permiated room (probably from steak house in the hotel).Became very nauseating during my stay, and interfered with all uses of room. Poor sleep from smell. It was like people were cooking rotten meat all day and night.
Employees very helpful and location was great. Mouse traps with droppings clearly visable in room.
Huge room, comfortable bed This hotel is unsusuccessfully trying to be a luxury hotel, which it does look like. Looks aren't everything though. The way you're treated by the staff is most important in a luxury hotel. This where the Warwick falls flat on its face. The "doormen" never acknowledged us going in or out. When the bellman showed us to our room, we asked where the ice machine was, instead of filling our ice bucket, he showed us where we could get our own ice--pretty classy guy. Now for the maid service: When we showered the first morning, there ware only two hand towels, one of which we had to use as a bath mat. My husband asked one of the maids on our floor for a couple more hand towels. Her reply was that she had none! We had to call housekeeping to ask for extra hand towels and a bath mat. When our room was done that morning, we got a bath mat, but no hand towels. They also failed to replace our coffe, coffee cups and drinking glasses. We were givien an hour extension for check out, but our maid knocked on our door three times to ask when we were checking out. All three times she knocked on the door were before noon! If Radison wants to run this hotel as a high-end hotel, they need to actually train there entire staff how to serve their guests.
Excellent location Overcharged for keeping a pet in the room. Neighboring hotels charge either nothing or $25. Radisson Plaza-Warwick charged us $60 for an overnight stay.
Rooms were spacious and staff helpful. Location
The location and amenities made available were a terriffic value. The staff and service was first class
I think the front desk staff were amazing- it was the quickest chec-in and check-out I've ever experienced. The cookies upon check-in were literally a warm touch. The room was a decent size- with a great view of the city from the eighth floor. The pool hours were until 11pm- which was great because I got in on the late side. There was also a decent gym and a sauna with lockers that you could put a code in and use. The decor in the room was somewhat dated and showing its age. The bathroom was small and it took maneuvering to close the door. If you need absolute quite to sleep it may be a problem because you can hear the traffic from the 8th floor and any hallway activity as well. The cleaning people knocked at 8am to clean- when I was checking out anyway, so I could of done without the disruption.
We had to checkout for an early flight. It would have been nice to have coffee and fruit in the lobby.
We liked that everyone was friendly and welcoming even the guests. Philadelphia was beautiful and will most likely visit again soon. The only thing we didn't like was that we had to pay for parking. Normally if you're a guest it's free to park so it was a bit odd. Also that wifi was not free as well.
DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Philadelphia Center City is a class act! From the efficient, friendly check in to check out, we were treated as special guests. The staff actually cared that we had a pleasant, comfortable stay. We asked the staff for recommendations on moderately priced restaurants close-by and were pleased with our choice from their list. Our room was comfortable, quiet, pleasantly decorated and well stocked with adequate amenities. This is our third year staying at the Double Tree for the annual Philadelphia Flower Show and we have never been disappointed.
We booked the best suite on the 26th floor for our wedding night. The hotel gave two sets of our room key out so when we went up to sleep at 2am after our wedding, there was someone else's items in our room. They downgraded us to the open room on the 8th floor. I was not given a refund as the manager said it was an equivalent room... It wasn't. :(
Location Needs some room improvement, maybe paint
Location was great and rooms were overall quite clean. A little beaten up, but otherwise quaint. Lobby bar and front desk staff were very nice. Someone trying to get into our room in the middle of the night and the cleaning staff thinking 830 am is an okay time to come clean the room.
Parking was easy, front desk staff was polite and helpful - but housekeeping was loud and crass outside of our room in the early hours. Be careful if you are located in room 1602 - the housekeeping staff 'breakroom' is right outside your door. Directions for ice would have been nice - rather than the scavenger hunt I ended up going on.
The view of center city was PHENOMENAL. The beds were extremely comfortable. Breakfast was not included. Only four elevators for the entire hotel, which meant in the morning we waited for five elevators until we found one with enough room to send half our family down, then had to wait again to get the rest of us down (there are only four of us). We still had to physically check out at the front desk, which had a line. Most hotels don't require that anymore. Very small pool. No free WiFi.
AMAZING CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!
staff had great attitudes and were outgoing. rooms were clean and well maintained. as expected for a hilton. tv in room was rather small. rooms were connected by doors without request which led to sound pollution from other rooms.
Super accommodating staff and convenient location. The rate for a last minute Saturday booking was also a nice bonus! Will definitely stay again.
Location The staff is poor when it comes to taking care of customers. Will never stay there again.
Very easy access to my room which was great! Friendly front desk staff Room didn't have a blow dryer, had to ask 3 times and wait an hour for one.
I LOVED being able to get seltzer water in the lobby 24/7 and I loved the coffee machine in the lobby, too! The computer workspaces in the lobby were also very, very helpful. It didn't have a lot of silly extras -- the rooms were spare but completely adequate. The maids actually left the towels alone if they were hanging (so they weren't laundered needlessly). My husband complained that the bathroom was so cramped and that he had to hold the toilet seat up when he wanted to pee. The fridge was in a cabinet which wasn't installed so well so it was tricky to close.
No real room service. Showers not great.
Excellent pricing. Friendly staff. Water stations are a nice touch. Separate elevator to the lobby, then another elevator to the room -- very bad. Cleanliness overall ok, but there was an old, dirty carpet in the room. WiFi spotty. Fitness room/equipment needs updating.
Rooms were very clean like the coffee set up for the guest and especially the water. Employees very pleasant and accommodating N/A
Lounge off lobby is great. Nice high-end coffee machine (espresso, cappucino, latte) avail 24/7, snacks during the day. Next door (I think) a baby was crying some of the night but sound barely traveled - it was not enough to keep us up. Mildly inconvenient to take an elevator from street level to lobby, and then another elevator to room. Room not large at all, but met expectations for the area!
Very convenient and trendy location. We love that there is free sparkling water and coffee/ cappuccino/expresso Since rooms are small, space is tight.
Great staff. The listing mentioned free parking. It was not- only 35% off
The room and the location were perfect. If you want to be in the heart of Philly it's a great choice. Comfortable beds One staff member was a big abrasive when answering questions and handling issues. I might as well have been dealing with a machine, but this was really just one staff member in particular. The other gentlemen helping me was much more well-mannered.
Affordable with nice accommodations. There was always water, sparkling water, tea, and coffee available in the lobby. To operate the elevator you have to put your key card in, which made me feel safe. There were snacks in the lobby the first night we got there and then they all disappeared...it was weird!
Front desk was very accommodating upgraded us to deluxe king room upon check in Concierge not very helpful. Asked twice for recommendations on transportation and wanted to push private car which was theost expensive option vs any other public transportation which we opted for.
Location was prefect for walking around town to all the sites
Robes, shower was nice , room was quiet. 4 large men given a king bed and a roll away .... We didn't fit in beds comfortably, one ended up sleeping on the floor. Valet parking took a long time and left all 4 windows down in my car.
The valets were very friendly, helpful and accomadating. Room was clean and the tv had a great HD picture. Check in staff ignored me while I stood there staring at them waiting to check in because they were on the phone. As soon as they were done some jerk jumped the line because he wanted to talk to a manager and they catered to him for another 5 mins before helping anyone else. Room smelled like stale cigarettes and the bathroom sink wouldn't drain.
Very friendly staff. Great view of the city from my room. Walls are thin, and you could here the neighboring room to well.
Dog-friendly facilities Certain staff members (including one valet who was obviously personally invested in getting our car out and seemed to feel genuinely bad that one of his colleagues had screwed up our ticket) Location General lack of service-orientation among staff (many were impolite or at least brusque - not the kind of attitude you get at luxury hotels) Everything (except room service) closes early Valet takes forever to drop car and get it out - very poorly managed Not a lot of services available
The room was very comfortable and yet stylish. The location is absolutely perfect. The highlight of our stay was the incredibly attentive and friendly staff. We highly recommend staying at Loews Philadelphia Hotel!
Excellent location, exceptional staff, great restaurant and bar. Nice room and a comfortable bed as well as a pretty good WiFi connection (best I have experience in a while at a hotel). Walls were a little thin. We could hear people in the hall coming and going as if they were almost in the room.
The staff and hotel were wonderful. They ran out of cucumber water, but we did drink a lot of it.
Not for family's & a little outdated. The location is amazing!
The staff was gracious and helpful Dust covered the room and the toilet had cardboard trash in it upon arrival. Staff took care of the problem after being notified. The cost for parking at $45.00 a night was ridiculous.
Location & room were great Air conditioning was bad, after repair it was barely adecuate
Location 1) Room was extremely small and uncomfortable. 2) AC Fan cycled on and off every 15 seconds or so keeping me awake during most of my first night there. I reported this to the front desk and asked that it be fixed, but was not. I had to turn off the AC the next two nights in order to sleep. 3) We had booked several rooms for a wedding party. Only 1 was available for check in at the advertised check in time. 4) Only 4 elevators for a 25 story building made getting from floor to floor very difficult. For example: getting coffee and ice (each available at only 1 location in whole hotel) took an unacceptably long time due to long elevator waits. 5) Staff was not very helpful. One of our guests left an item in another room. I had to follow up with lost and found 3 times before I was able to get it back. 6) in short...while I've stayed in many hotels in my life, this is one of the worst experiences I have had. Next time I will stay in a Red Roof or similar....my experiences there have been much better. This was certainly the poorest "value for dollar" that I've ever experienced.
Clean, friendly and helpful staff. Great location.
My hubby and infant stayed at this hotel for new years day, and we loved our experience. It was convenient to downtown philly, our city view king was spacious for a downtown hotel, and the hotel extras, like happy hour, morning coffee, and all day hot cocoa were lovely!
The staff was very good and the location was excellent. Our room was not ready until 45 minutes after the check time. The bed was not comfortable.
Great located, clean and comfiy. pretty new rooms. Nice staff No free wifi (pretty oldfashioned) No parking, 48 $ for one day valet was pretty expensive.
The whole set up was lovely. The artwork in the hotel is great and the room is very clean and welcoming as well as the staff. I got to Philly early but there wasn't an available room until the usual check in time, 3:00.
Absolutely LOVED staying here. My boyfriend and I stayed here after the marathon. Bottled water when we arrived, champagne and the staff upgraded our room! We got there 3 hours earlier for check-in and because our Queen room wasn't ready yet and my boyfriend was visibly exhausted from the marathon, they gave us a King room that was ready. The rooms are the perfect size, comfortable bed, clean bathroom with amenities, and room service was fantastic. Free wine social hour by the fire was incredible. Hotel is centrally located with a lot of great food surronding. We'lol be staying here anytime we're in Philly! 18% gratuity and 5$ service charge placed on the food service is a bit excessive. The lady (who was so sweet) brought the tray into our room and had me sign a receipt that had a tip option on it. Just mad it a little uncomfortable. It didn't take away how amazing the food was though!
Friendly and accommodating staff Plenty of nearby restaurants No business center (but front desk was helpful)
I liked a LOT on December 12 Santa klaus with all the dogs around It Was simple delightfull. For me a 10 Star hotel. We spend 3 weeks and we enjoyed
Friendly staff. Good location. $50 for valet parking. Still not sure where they parked the car....
My fiance and I visited for the holiday weekend. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Room ammentities were updated. Great views of city (of your on the right side of the building). king size bed was nice to have although it wasn't especially soft. Room was cleaned every afternoon for when we returned. They have decent free wine ever day between 6 and 7. The hotel lobby and elevators and hallways were nicely decorated, full of art. Room size was just average, didn't have much if any more room compared to other hotels. The shower was nothing special, same size and same shower head I would find at a 2 or 3 star hotel. Nothing was inclusive except for a few toiletries you may have forgotten at home. We had a weird Brown smudge on one of our end table drawers that room service had to clean up. Only 4 elevators for 25 floors of rooms was bad, if your in the top floor like we were we had to stop at 4-5 floors going up or down before we arrived at our room or the lobby. Ice is Only on one flone which is extremely inconvenient. These negatives were a big let down, overshadowing the positives for the price you pay.
The hotel was pet friendly Hotel need a pool
Place is perfect after recent renovation but I did have a promlem with the staff not calling me back after I left something in my room. So far three days later no one has called back to tell me one way or the other what happened to my toiletries
my room was great, very large and comfortable, wonderfull location for shopping and close to almost everything. No restaurant or lounge though is really the only draw back but there are plenty near by. I will and am staying there again
The business center had only one p.c. to surf the Internet.
Location Bed was uncomfortable, elevator was old, shakey and rickety and there were ants in the bathroom.
Everything, happy staff, welcoming, clean rooms, awesome views, definitely would recommend this hotel.
Everything. Service, quality . Towels could be upgraded.
Staff professionalism King size bed. Clean room. People in the room next door were talking loudly until 2 am! The first night I got absolutely no sleep. It required a cab ride to get to my conference at the Conference Center.
Beautiful hotel. Great staff. Poor sound control between rooms. I could easily hear conversations next door.
Staff were all personable and helpful. Room was appointed nicely. The sound insulation between rooms that share a door is poor.
Room was very clean. Comfortable bed. Staff was friendly and attentive via phone to front desk. Thin walls. Reception desk was slow as molasses. Possibly understaffed. Check-in on the computer took way too long especially having already provided all my details online. Dried creamer packets for the coffee in room is disgusting.
Staff. Horrific city parking garage. Construction going on all day vibrating entire hotel.
The woman who coordinated the breakfast area each morning was wonderful. She was always friendly and efficient. (I stayed three nights) The bedding didn't come up far enough --I had to scrunch to the bottom of the bed to get the blanket to my neck. The window was a bit drafty
Breakfasts were fantastic, both selection and the time of availability. The staff were attentive and polite and kept everything well stocked. The location is great for downtown The front desk/lobby could help a bit more with directions, or perhaps a walking map of downtown could be made available for those who don't have cars.
We were on the 17th foor and the city view was fantastic. Excellent breakfast buffet also.
Close to downtown restaurants and shops. convenient
Very friendly personell, good location, peacefull, good service
It was very close to all the historical sites.
Great breakfast. Staff was excellent Parking arrangements
Great value and location. Hotel is in good shape. Staff was accomodating and friendly. Breakfast was very decent. They also have a parking garage if you are bringing a car. Rooms need some updating- which they are in the process of doing and they have the new designs displayed on an easel in the lobby- which I thought was a very nice idea.
great location, very clean, friendly staff everything was great-- no complaints!
The hotel was beautiful, the employees were very kind, and the room was perfect for our overnight stay. We walked to the Reading terminal market, and we were across the street from the subway station. Couldn't have asked for a better location! The valet parking was a bit pricey but it was very convenient and no stress.
We had a wonderful stay at this clean modern hotel... It's location could not have been any better. Will definitely stay here again.
This was out 4th time staying and it was just as before. Clean friendly convenient and FANCY! It's a little hard to grab a cab/uber out front, but that's the city. No reflection on the hotel at all.
Hotel was clean, staff was attentive and courteous. The rooms were beautifully appointed, and when our booked room wasn't available, we were upgraded into a corner room executive suite overlooking historic City Center. Pool wasn't heated.
I loved the building it was very classic Philadelphia and very comfortable. It was very clean and the rooms were well kept. The bed was extremely comfortable! The night staff didn't seem as up beat as the morning staff - but then again they are working nights. They did their jobs and got my room key to me in very little time. :)
When I arrived to the marriott to find out kayak never reserved my room, the kind marriott staffer jumped into action (and also revealed this was the 4th time that week that he had to deal with kayak's inefficiency)
It would be nice to have some kind if discounted parking. Also, we had dinner in the hotel's restaurant and would only give it 1-2 star. Would not eat there again.
The location was great, room and hotel was beautifully decorated, and the price was so reasonable. I would definitely come back! $50 to park your car is kind of expensive but you get a full 24 hours.
Everything, location was great for everyone to enjoy. There's a Marriott with full service next door, a Hard Rock and bunch or restaurants. Is also located on a historical area. N/a
Location is good, although there are 2 different Marriott hotels next door. We went to the wrong one first and already had valet parked our car before we realized it was the hotel next door. Received an email confirming room would be ready by 3, upon arrival at 4 we were notified room was not ready and would be 45min. We were told they would call us when ready but after hour an a half of no call we went back to find there was a credit card issue which could have easily been resolved if they would have called. Wasted time wandering around downtown
The room was gorgeous and the staff were very nice. The bed was way too soft. And the walls are thin so we we were woken up through the night by a group next door to us. We finally called the front desk at 4:30 and they addressed the issue.
Location My room was not ready till 5pm.
entourage, wine and cheese in the evening
My wife and I were very favorably impressed with the Independent Hotel. The building itself has historic charm. The setup is a bit eclectic, with a small entryway to the elevator up to the lobby. The rooms are quite spacious and well appointed. The staff couldn't be more welcoming and enthusiastic. In addition, the hotel is near some very fine restaurants and attractions. We walked everywhere. Our visit was terrific. We look forward to coming again and we will definitely recommend this hotel to our friends.
Historic city centre, helpful staff, comfortable room and complimentary drinks Noisy fridge
Two things: the manager on duty was way beyond-the-call-of-duty in being helpful with advice about restaurants, etc. The in-room breakfast was good, nice selection. The walls are pretty thin; I listened to some revelry that went on in the next room until after midnight. I know I could have complained, but didn't want to. The instant oatmeal is probably expendable, so we avoided it after the first morning?
Continental breakfast served in the room at time I choose Great location for walking to restaurants and activities
Every single member of the staff was incredibly solicitous, courteous, and helpful. It overlooks one of Philly's legendary Sistine-like murals and is steps from the main Market St in one direction, and the wonderful antiques / jewelry / historic-homes-on-mews district in the other. One can't open the windows, which is apparently common in many hotels in Philadelphia after an incident with a child falling out, but in New York we have child window guards and I recommend them. It's better for the planet and more pleasant for the customer to have fresh air. What's more, it would save this and other hotels so much money if they didn't have to run the AC all the time! Just sayin'.
The room was fantastic, the hotel staff were lovely and there were nice added extras like a complementary wine and cheese evening.
Staff very nice and helpful
Erick constantly had a smike on his face our whole experience- He was our bell hop, concierge, breakfast delivery man, and entertainment. He deserves a raise. Our room was beautifully decorated and i felt like i was in my bedroom. Lovely staff and quiet enviornment. The temperature in our room was a bit bi polar- even with our thermostate on 65 it felt like 75. We had cathedral cielings which i am sure caused this- The vents were still blowing cold air.
Very nice room, great location, easy access to & from room, inexpensive nearby parking, breakfast delivered to room, wine & cheese in evenings. Couple minor things - small shower stall, few things need minor repairs, adjustments - but these did not adversely affect our stay.
Excellent reception staff, who were incredibly helpful when I needed to take a train to an unfamiliar area. Parts of the room could have been a little cleaner, but nothing that wouldn't make me want to stay there again.
The ventilation system was extremely loud. Breakfast included only coffee, bagels and cereals.
Our room was very large! Especially for for hotel in the middle of a major city. Very high ceiling and tall windows made for a comfortable stay. Long walk from lobby to rooms and viva versa. Stairway was very dirty.
Great location, beautiful pool (with very accommodating hours) and clean & comfortable room. Very friendly, helpful staff.
Hot apple cider in the lobby was a nice touch. Complimentary Wi-Fi not included?! Considering the room rates, I found this outrageous. Felt like a 3rd world country.
The hotel does not offer Reward points when I book through Kayak
Central location, clean rooms, many hotel amenities, ease of check in and check out, responsive stadd. Room too small. Was told I would get two Queen beds and larger room and did not receive. Terrible view of construction site.
Close to Center City, comfortable room and beds, quiet for sleeping in.
GREAT LOCATION ROOMS WERE NOT CLEANED WELL. TOILET WAS USED AND NOT CLEANED PROPERLY. PEOPLE NEXT DOOR TOO LOUD, TOO LATE...
The location of the hotel is the definition of ideal. Many modes of public transit are easily accessible. Just on principle, any hotel should be able to provide free, or, at minimum, reduced fee parking. This hotel has neither. Be ready to fork out another $40/day for parking.
Clean, quiet, location No hot tub in the pool area
Location is good. Beds not comfortable at all. Internet didn't work, unacceptable considering there is a extra charge Keep a bottle of water in the room!!
Too big if anything. 8 minutes to get to/from room
Sizable room with modern amenities with a very comfortable bed and pillows. Friendly, helpful staff. Great workout room. Convenient central location. Large, sociable bar and lounge area. There was a stain on my sheets; could tell that it was something that had been washed/dried into place, but still a little disappointing for a hotel chain of this quality. I was given a room accessible for persons with disabilities, which I was fine with, but was not asked by the check-in staff first. The only downside to the accessible room was that the doorless, tubless shower got water all over the bathroom floor and soaked the bathmat regardless of how I adjusted the shower-head. Really, these are just minor inconveniences from an otherwise great hotel. Would definitely come back.
My room had everything I needed. The location is excellent. The hotel offers free wifi and hot breakfast. They charged me $70 for incidentals at check in without telling me about the amount. I noticed it, because my credit card company emailed me about the charge. Also there was a strange charge ($0.01) after check out. I need to figure out what it was for.
Not a good bed at all. Otherwise everything was pretty good. Nothing special though.
The manager took great care of us after she was told about our disappointments. She was wonderful and made our second night much better than the first. Most of the other staff were very friendly and accommodating. The facility is extremely old along with the heating/air conditioning units. Our sheets had a hole in them. Had disappointment with 2 staff members who were a bit rude. Felt the crowd that hung out in the hotel bar and/or were staying at the hotel were a bit trashy. For the price per night, we could stay at the Sofitel or Four Seasons and get better accommodations.
Awesome building champagne at checkin have had many enjoyable and memorable stays. Understaffed, poor service sub par to other Ritz hotels. We were provided with wrong room on arrival. Room was somewhat dated and curtains had large weird stains on them. Carpet in room was also stained making it feel dirty. Restaurant service was horrible / waited 40 mins for a table then waited another 15 mins to get acknowledged by staff. Used express checkout, left some negative comments and asked for emailed updated portfolio via email - never received. I've had better service and value for money in other not so "refined" hotels.
The hotel and staff were extraordinary. i was always greeted upon leaving and entering the hotel. Oftentimes the bellman or concierge would ask if I needed anything. I must have looked a bit lost!!! The situation detailed below needs to be addressed because other than that, the room was most comfortable with a lovely view of City Hall northward Amanda in housekeeping was excellent in refreshing my room and being extra certain there was no detail that was omitted There wasn't anything "I didn't like!" However, The only "hiccup" I experienced was a slight odor of tobacco in. my room at the end of each day. When I notified the front desk they were quick to put a plan in place to remedy the problem. Unfortunately, the odor continued and was probably a function of the odor of the carpet, drapery and bedding.
The staff was incredibly friendly and very knowledgeable of the city. We had a great experience! They must have given our room away before we checked in. Our group of 3 friends got one king bed so we had to use a roll-away cot, which wasn't the most comfortable thing.
