"The hotel was extremely clean, and the employees were nice. The $200 deposit seemed excessive, and I didn't get it back because the staff said my room smelled like smoke; I'm on oxygen and you can't smoke by oxygen tanks. I'll never stay here again.2022-12-28"

"Convenient to the convention center, downtown, the Sepia, and China Town. You'll be able to walk everywhere, though the location wasn't appealing. The hotel and room were clean, and the staff was friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was good enough to grab and go, and the dining area was kept clean and stocked. Good place for a short stay, and very economical.2017-07-13"

"The hotel, room, and service were nice. Parking rates were exorbitant, and it wasn't acceptable to pay for wireless Internet access. The lower level food court had limited breakfast options.2015-07-21"
"The hotel was centrally located to downtown attractions. The subway to the sports stadiums was just a block away. The room was well-maintained, but the mattresses were worn. The TV was out of service for hours. The elevators were old and slow; be prepared for long waits during peak hours. I'd give this place 2 stars.2019-08-16"

"The hotel claims to be connected to the convention center, but the doors were locked during ticketed events.2019-03-06"
"An unpleasant experience. I asked for a 1st floor room and was given a room on the top floor far from the elevator. Towels weren't replaced daily unless a request was made in advance. During my 4-day stay, my room was never cleaned. The ice machine was in the basement. The hotel entrance was on a busy street, so loading luggage was inconvenient. Good variety of microwavable breakfast items and liberal breakfast hours.2021-08-21"
"Our room was clean, the bedsheets were fresh, and the carpet wasn't stained. The bathroom had new fixtures, and the shower had a glass door. The decor was spartan, but it was a good value. The hotel lobby was large, clean, and bright, with laminate flooring. The elevators were clean. Located in a seedy neighborhood, but it's a good option. 2021-07-12"

"You couldn't find a better hotel atmosphere, and the staff was the most caring we've ever encountered.2020-02-11"
"We were happy with our stay, and the price was right. The hotel was clean and modern, the staff was friendly and accommodating, and breakfast was good. I was self-parking and felt safer walking to and from the hotel on 12th Street rather than 13th Street.2017-08-23"
"Great location in the center of everything. The room was clean, but needed better soundproofing. We heard noise from another room, and every beep and siren from the fire station across the street. The bathtub backed up. The hotel staff was accommodating, friendly, and helpful. The bar area was tiny, but the staff was great, and the food was really good. Parking was validated, and the staff validated our parking for 5 PM the day we checked out so we were able to walk around, shop, and eat.2022-10-10"

"Great hotel just minutes from everything. Lovely room and attentive staff. Nice place for my 1st visit to Philadelphia.2015-06-04"
"The hotel was reasonably priced and located in the city center. The room was tiny, but it was adequate, clean, and attractive. No chair, but there wasn't really space for one. The downstairs lounge had comfortable seating, and the restaurant was a pleasant surprise, with good food and service. If you don't need a pool or posh amenities, this is an excellent choice.2022-09-17"

At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
