It is in a seedy neighborhood, no parking, valet only. Although everyone is super nice it smells like pee! There are drug addicts hanging outside and so many homeless people hanging around in front of the 711. My room looked like the photo but downstairs lobby looked like a methadone clinic.

Good location, in heart of downtown. Parking is costly, but that's the city.

Great location, excellent condition, better than expected service, last but not least, free breakfast

Very convenient location, keys worked, bed was comfortable, plenty of hot water, nice stay, no complaints. Our view from 22nd floor was amazing! Valet was pricey but very efficient and we had center city right outside our door. We had a great time. Oh and breakfast was amazing!

Wonderful hotel, great rooms with mini-kitchen and lounge area. Great complimentary breakfast too. Only issue was finding the hotel - that and the valet service at 50 a night is steep. Overall, had a great stay.

Friendly front desk staff! Room was really clean and well stocked with towels.

No hot water in the shower AC/Heat wasn't functioning properly and room was 80 degrees Staff fixed ac/heat issue but was not super apologetic in the above...

This hotel is right next to City Hall. Good walking distance from every museum. Friendly staff. Breakfast is was awesome. Great view from out window.

Everything was great with the hotel. The only thing that turned us off was the people who beg for money outside the hotel.

Great location and easy to walk to many great restaurants. Friendly staff and family friendly rooms.

Conveniently located for walking. When I visit again I will stay at this hotel again.

Awesome room great view. Best breakfast ever. Very secure place to stay.

The staff was really friendly, and the room was clean. I recommend this hotel.

The room was a lotta cramped. We were given a room with a great view of the city, but the downside was a tiny bed.

The front desk worker, Inchan, was absolutely amazing. Very accommodating, and even remembered our names with so many other people booked in the hotel. The room itself was very spacious and clean. Very large windows and we had a great view of city hall.

The hotel was nice for a business visit, as it is in the vicinity of the convention center and other areas of interest. Breakfast is included, so that's a nice feature. Nevertheless, if you make a reservation for 3 people, you don't want to make the third bed by yourself at 11:30pm, that wasn't very cool.

The hotel was nice right in the center of town I was able to walk around and see a lot of the awesome site philly had to offer.

The hotel is in a very cool location! Close to shopping and restaurants. Clean and great value. Great staff!
