    Fabulous

    Excellent value. Friendly staff. Most of facility is closed for renovations. Used by airline personnel for overnight stays. Regular shuttle bus to nearby airport and easy access from airport to downtown Philadelphia.

    No food outlets within walking distance, although snacks from on-site vending machines are available during renovation. Renovation will not be completed until well into 2011.

    Room was clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful.

    Due to renovations being made, it was a little confusing finding the hotel office. Worth the trouble, though.

    The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was newly renovated and had a new bed, tv, etc.

    The wireless internet was very slow and the construction across the alley started early in the morning.

    The hotel overcharged me and even after I requested a refund of the overcharge, the hotel never rectified the situation!!

    Your website advertised that breakfast was included. All you had was doughnuts & coffee. That is not honest.

    Very good

    The price was fabulous and when they didn't have a room available with 2 beds, they gave us an additional room for our teenaged son. The rooms are obviously undergoing upgrades, so some things were a little off.

    Breakfast was supposed to be included but was not due to construction. This was not announced until we appeared at breakfast time. Also, they really need to increase their curb appeal. They views of the river and island are wonderful, but you come in through a parking lot and boat yard that looks disreputable.

    It was not a good time to stay at the hotel. They were in the process of moving from one building to another. The complimentary breakfast was a joke ( coffee, donuts and toast). The room that I stayed in had a very musty smell to it and the room had just been redone. I scheduled a double room and was given a single (they did however comp. us an other single room)

    the musty smell

    Value for money. Good shuttle to the airport where it was possible to catch a train downtown.
