We came here for a convention It was conveniently located just across the street from the convention centerThe staff was friendly but the valet parking crew weren’t very efficient and we waited in line for about a half hour and parking is EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE!The front desk was helpful and efficient

The room was clean a d the AC worked but couldn’t be adjusted below 70 degreesTheir service was great and when we left out the do not disturb sign they would call to check if we wanted maid servicesWe stayed 5 days and were comfortable 😌It is situated right in down town and was convenient for walking to about anywhere we wanted to goWe feel like we can recommend this place

Mark Heck

Very nice hotel Staff was Very Friendly and helpful Valets, Doormen, Bell Hops, Desk clerks, Housekeeping always cheerful and greeting you asking if you need help

(Adria greeted us at the front door when we arrived and started helping us from the get She even insisted on grabbing our bags from the trunk)Waiters at the restaurant in the Lobby were awesome (especially Altin and Edward)I wish I could remember all their names of the rest of the staff to put in a good word for all of themAs far as the hotel itself: Clean, and nice with good viewsCentrally located in the city Next to the Reading Terminal Market(Best eats in town) Convenient to the subway walking distance to Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell Walking distance to City Hall and Convention Center,

Alison Chaplin

I stayed here for a two- day work retreat The only positive was that the people who worked here were really nice and accommodating Parking was a nightmare, even for those who arrived early

The food was hit or miss– either there were a number of really tasty options, or everything was gross, depending on the meal My room was ok, but there was hair everywhere that could not have been mine and I couldn’t make the room cool enough to be comfortable Overall, it seemed like they couldn’t professionally handle the amount of people we had there

If I could give them 10 stars, I would We stay in hotels that are comparable to SpringHill in Voorhees for dance competitions, this one is my favorite The rooms are clean, staff is friendly, breakfast is great (love the waffles), staff assisting with breakfast were extremely effective

Rooms were clean and fresh The shower had a feature that streams water at your back The rooms are well lit It is definitely kid friendly and is always packed will well mannered kids for tournaments and competitions I think the pool was closed but since COVID, that doesn’t surprise me Not a great picture and it is only part of the breakfast, but…

Faron Miller

A good experience overall Nice size room at a reasonable price Only two issues with our room: the shower head felt like it was going to fall off when adjusting the tilt and the mini fridge tipped forward when opening the door

One general issue with SpringHill Suites is the sliding bathroom doors don’t usually lock Love the included breakfast!

Kenneth Kohlmann

I was hoping to not write a negative review, but this was a horrible stayWe got here around 6pm, when we walked in our room was at 77f We set the thermostat to 68f and went to dinner

at 8pm it was still 77fCalled the front desk to see if someone could look at it, they sent someone and they suggested changing the temperature to 62fThis hasn’t changed anythingI called them to let them know at 9pm to see if we can switch rooms They said they would have to speak to management as other rooms of the are booked, but they would let us know I told them we have a little one that needs to get sleep soon, so please let us know ASAP40 mins later and still waitingcalled back and there apparently was a miscommunication and they thought the AC was fixed, so they never called backI explained again it wasn’t fixed, I have a wife who is 7 months pregnant and a 2 1/2 year old, so I need some kind of answerI was told they would check with their manager again (via text) and they would again let me knowAbout 15 minutes later the front desk called to say their manager said there is nothing they can do and the room just needs time to cool down#1 they don’t understand how HVAC systems work, it doesn’t take over 4 hours to cool down a room 1 degree and mind you at the time if writing this it’s 10:10pm and 70f outside#2 they clearly don’t care about their guestsAs Marriott owners we usually have a good experience, this however was notWe understand things happen, but the lack of communication and service is inexcusable

Andrea Iriarte

This hotel is very conveniently located It has great parking, but no valet available One can tell that this was a beautiful hotel at one point but NOTHING has been done to it and it is decaying

The bones of the hotel are beautiful, but the furniture is second rate, the decorations are scant and cheap, the carpets and curtains have seen better days While we were staying there, the fire alarm went off and it took them a long time to get the elevators running again The door was on our room would open without a key and the bathroom curtain was filthyThe hotel’s restaurant, Nineteen, is very nice, but only the inner circle is well decorated The rest of the tables look like fold awaysTo get into the hotel, one has to walk through a weird office lobby where at one point there must have been stores but now we wonky empty spacesIt is sad to see such a beautiful building go without maintenance or upkeep

Jenny Contenta

Very charming 200 year old hotel The rooms are very dark and not the cleanest I really disliked the beds, hard mattresses and now comforter on the bed

Meeting rooms are nice and large No coffee shop and no bar So much potential My lights kept coming on in my room the entire week stay Super annoying that they do not clean your room daily

Rachelle Marie

Priced high, expected it to be cleaner The room was large as we had a corner room, double bed Room furniture, carpet is all pretty aged and quite dirty

Shower drained slow and filled up the tub rather quick Hallways and carpets dirty feel We really wanted a more luxurious stay here as it was pictures and displayed so nice on the advertisements Restaurant not open for dining in, delivery fee and 5 dollar cold stale toast Parking was 40 bucks for one night! They DO NOT VALIDATE parking like some reviews say they do A bummer, but downtown near shopping

The historic buildings, the enchanted garden, the decor, your bags that mysteriously vanish the moment you walk in and appear in your room, the exquisite art, bed linens and gorgeously appointed baths… a stay to remember! Can’t wait to book a private dinner party in the chef’s kitchen… my only frustration is we can’t leave with the furnishings! Meeting Victoria is just the cherry on top A gem of a boutique hotel in the heart of Center City!

SC Galassini

Actually, this was our second visit Our first was during our daughter’s wedding weekend and we loved the Dwight D, but didn’t get to appreciate all it had to offer So my husband and I visited again the weekend before St

Patricks day Vittoria and Ken remembered us and were so welcoming Our room was beautiful But what makes this so wonderful is the care Vittoria and Ken put into making everyone feel comfortable and welcome Thanks again and will return again

Brian Driscoll

To be honest I haven’t stayed here yet But I wanted to give my experience so far I booked and they called me to verify some information which was great of them

Saved me a disaster Then I ran into life issues after my cancelation time frame and they assisted me in rebooking So far I haven’t stepped foot in the hotel, however the customer service has been above and beyond any customer service I have ever dealt with Can’t wait to stay I’ll post a follow up after

Kari Kimpland

We stayed at this hotel with our children for a family trip to Philly The hotel was in a perfect location with a beautiful view The rooms were great and very clean

We were able to walk to the Aquarium, to dinner, and sit by the water We drove into Philly for the zoo, which was a quick 15 minute drive Perfect place to stay especially if you don’t want the craziness of staying in the city I would definitely recommend

Duane Mercer

If you are wanting a hotel that is stylish, away from the busyness of a city and has a view

THIS IS THE HOTEL TO CHOOSE It is ALSO priced fair as an added bonusWhen we arrived the staff were attentive to us They offered a self serve refreshment of fruit infused water which was refreshing after a 7 hour drive! The check in was quick There is a lot of parking behind the hotel in their lot which is accessed by the room key The room was beautiful! It was clean and stocked all the necessary items and with coffee and tea The washroom was clean and had a large shower that was like ours at home!The first night we stayed we were disappointed to be told there were only three restaurants in walking distance I should have researched better for this before taking the trip My wife and I decided to eat at the hotel We dined outside as the sun was setting The food did not disappoint nor did the sun set! I would highly recommend this during your stay After dinner, we walked around the waterfront and it was relaxing Needless to say, the hotel is in a great little areaWe journeyed into Philadelphia on day two As an added bonus, the hotel had fresh coffee, tea, and fruit available to take We didn’t want to take our SUV so we walked about 14 mins to city hall in Camden and took the Subway into Philly We had a short ride as we wanted off at the transfer areaThank you to all the staff (esp the front check in staff – the girl who gave us bottle water when there was none cold in the refreshment area, and also to the guy with the shadeshe made my wife and I smile each time I saw him)

Rosalyn Lee

The hotel by the river is a site for sore eyes! Especially after a long day of traveling and emotional upheaval Staff was great, especially James who was so attentive, though busy, and made you feel welcome! There is also a Thursday evening jazz show, 2 hrs, just long enough, that was very enjoyable The restaurant in the hotel has a nice variety of foods

The room was well appointed, even a Keurig coffee maker with coffee/tea samples My only complaint is not to expect engineering after a certain hour which can be troublesome but all in all, it was perfect! I’d come back, even if just for the jazz show and water view!!

Very helpful front desk and check in process Rooms were very clean and stylish Amazing water pressure in the shower and they also provide conditioner, shampoo, and body wash

There’s a cute Mexican restaurant and a cute rooftop bar to check as well I 100% recommend grabbing a coffee in the AM The coffee shop inside is so cute and the service is amazing! Lastly the coffee almost has this creaminess too it I can’t explain and I only had an American iced Definitely would stay again when in Philly!


Super location, great rates, excellent service Very comfortable bed, fun window seating (fun, not comfortable) w/nice city view, good bathroom Clean

Very thin walls and laminate floors but courteous neighbors overall Originally a “Pod” hotel but better as a Hilton In-house lobby cafe is interesting and decent enough that I would visit it on it’s own merits + it offers relatively generous Hilton elite breakfast benefit


I booked for a long weekend in December I have no complaints The place was clean, the staff was incredibly nice and accommodating

Sure, the room was small, but I knew what I was booking when I looked the place up I only needed a bed and bathroom during my stay There was of course a TV as well as under the bed storage, a safe, and two drawers The bathroom was regular sized, had a very nice shower and there was a hair dryer as well This hotel is gorgeous and I enjoyed having a cafe inside the hotel I did not have any complaints during my stay Just make sure you do some research before booking any hotel, there’s no reason for people to be disappointed in what they didn’t get when none of it was advertised in the first place

This place is brand new and very nice The rooms look nice and are clean Staff was helpful and friendly

But if u need rest, find someplace else This place was built very much on the cheap You can hear normal conversations between rooms and if you’re not on the top floor get ready to hear every footstep of the people above you You’ll also get the enjoy the roar of the highway and every car that passes by in the parking lots At almost 300$ for the night you can do much better

Shereen Xavier

First of all this hotel is so concerned about saving their towels and cups over guest satisfaction We had one large towel and 3 floor mats when we first came in They don’t offer housekeeping even if you request it unless u stay there for over 5 days

When asked for fresh towels they made us bring the old towel to the lobby!!! Like what the hell? We def do not recommend this hotel, we had yo stay here because it was part of a wedding block They need a refresher course on hospitality since they are in the hotel business

Jerit George

I usually will write a negative review if a place deserves one but I enjoyed my stay here Went for a cousins wedding for 2 nights and the process was very smooth Nice rooms, not too expensive

Staff was great, Jocelyn at the front desk was very nice and even arranged for me to get some room swaps because the sleeper sofa was not available Also they had no problem with us enjoying some drinks on the lobby and making me some key cards when I misplaced them On top of that, my father forgot his breathing machine in the room and they boxed it up and shipped it out via FedEx after I sent them the label, thanks Larry! Thank you for a great weekend!

Wow! Where to start?! This hotel is absolutely stunning We cannot express enough how wonderful their staff is as well They went above and beyond to correct a minor inconvenience and were extremely helpful with returning an item back to me that was left at the hotel

The pool, bar, spa, rooms, atmosphere, etc are just top notch You couldn’t ask for more My husband and I enjoyed every second of our stay and we are looking forward to getting back to the Four Seasons soon Again, the staff is just fantastic and we highly recommend this beautiful hotel 11/10!

Thu-Nga Ortega, DDS, MAGD

Wow, this hotel is amazing and customer service is top notch! There’s always a service person in the hallway almost anytime you open your door to provide you with anything you may need in your room They also have ice service to your room which is a plus There is bed turndown service as well

The bathroom has the best shower with strong pressure! The closet is like a changing area which is nicely separated front the bedroom area Everything is super plush here only suggestion is that they provide better toilet paper in the rooms Considering how upscale this hotel is, this is definitely a must

Taylor Weese

Posting on behalf of a friend who was too shy to do so – the hotel itself and service is lovely and exceed expectations The elevators, or should I say elevator, needs to be assessed and addressed How can such a luxurious hotel think the current system works? The amount of people and floors and what are labeled “smart” elevators create an unnecessary wait for a simple trip

Desperately needs improvement If they’re going to have two for the whole hotel, at least make sure they both work all the time! Otherwise fantastic

The hotel staff was very pleasant! Everyone from the valet, bartender, front desk, and security were professional The room was clean and we enjoyed the water view from all of the windows We sat by the water and watched the ferry, paddle boats, jet skiers, and families

The location was an easy drive from the highway and great for walking to some local attractionsIt is a long walk form self parking to the lobby People with children, elderly, or a lot of luggage might need to use the valet

Amirah Duggan

Front desk agent Sadat was very surly As I have worked in the hospitality as well as customer service field for 6 years, I’m very familiar with the professional and disposition a front desk agent should withhold His demeanor was very unpleasant, cold, and withdrawn

As a diamond member I know that accommodations that can be made as well as the empathetic values Hilton prides themselves on This man, holds not one of these qualities He was very rude to me and the guest before and after me I ultimately ended up canceling both of my reservations and going to a more pleasant Hilton location due to his attitude, unpleasantness, and the way i was treated at the front desk There was an issue with a credit card that could’ve easily been switched and well as room booking issues But after my short interaction with him, i decided to cancel the entire stay This was supposed to be a treat to my family after a rough patch in our lives and many deaths due to Covid-19 But i am absolutely never coming back here and i pray that no one else comes to this location for the same reasons i did and receive the treatment i have The location is beautiful but the staff needs improvement

Jesse B

The hotel was nice, but it lacked many amenities I found out once arriving that the executive lounge only had tea and coffee The tea was just bags of Lipton and the coffee was from a gas station style dispenser that you put your cup under and pushed the button

I was not given bottles of water that I usually get when staying and there was no water in the lounge either The front desk also stated that the restaurant is closed until the weekends and the breakfast available is a grab and go style The next morning I went to the table containing breakfast items and was asked if I would like to put it on my room I excused myself and confirmed that they did indeed honor the breakfast credits for diamond members They said they did so I had them add on a cappuccino and a breakfast sandwich Upon checking out I found that credits had not been applied to my stay for the breakfast items purchased

Tiffany Choice

From the perfect location in Old City to the amazing staff and beautiful decor this hotel is a complete class act I would definitely return here to stay Not only does the hotel host complimentary morning beverages (tea and coffee) but they also host an evening cocktail hour in the reservation parlor

The staff were all polite and professional from the curbside valet attendant (David) to the front desk I did not encounter any issues during my stay Check-in was a breeze If possible on short stays, opt in to not have your room turned over for a bill credit at the adjacent Red Owl restaurant Red Owl restaurant is located adjacent to the lobby at Kimpton Monaco The food is good as well as the service

Miles Bolland

The Monaco is an elegant and well appointed hotel, surrounded by the history of not only the city, but the country From Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell, to being able to see the USS New Jersey on the river, the views are something elseThe common areas are beautiful, from the ship chandelier in the entrance way, to the furniture around the reception area

The rooms are comfortable and look amazing The showers are okay and while not stand out, they shouldn’t be marked down on them However in 2/3 rooms we stayed in we had baths, and one was fantastic while the bath/shower in the suite was incredibleOne thing I will say that was a nuisance, the TVs were basically the same as you’d have found in a hotel 15 years ago Cable and movies on demand A smart TV or any provided ability to use streaming services (whether through a wireless phone connection or signing into the service on the TV) would have been much better Likewise an odd area is that tea/coffee facilities for the room had to be requestedThe thing that absolutely stands out though was the staff Every single one of them was friendly, knowledgeable and happy to help Regardless of number of questions asked they were patient and accommodating From door staff, to cleaners, to reception, every single one I dealt with was a credit to the hotelWithout a doubt the Monaco would be my first stop were I in Philadelphia again, and it has also created an interest in the Kimpton brand as a whole

This hotel has large comfortable rooms Housekeeping was great! We really have no complaints The parking garage is not truly self-park since they actually need to park your car since they use an elevator instead of ramps but the parking garage attendants were very nice and answered any questions I had

It only took a few minutes for them to bring my car down when it was time to leave

Jefferey Holoman

Nice spacious room Plenty of clean towels and hot water The bed was so comfortable! The room service was attentive with waters and coffee

They also did a great job cleaning the room The hotel is right on the edge of all the shopping and great restaurants The fitness center is pretty nice and all the machines were in good working order I consider this hotel a great value for center city Philadelphia! I can’t find anything negative to say about it!


PLEASE READ: This is falsely advertised as a 4 star hotel Maybe they’re mixing up review ratings with actual hotel star ratings I’d give it 2 star at best

It’s just down the street from the Westin and it’s like comparing a motel to the Ritz I paid over $200 each for 2 signature deluxe rooms and was hopeful upon arrival but the parking was shady and a bit creepy The staff is nice and the lobby is nice but when I got into the tiny elevator that felt like it was going to fall at any minute, hope dwindled When I walked into my room I knew I’d been duped It was definitely a “lipstick on a pig” situation The rooms smelled musty and of mold, the wallpaper was peeling, the amount of dust and dirt is appalling The bathroom grout was dirty, the bathroom door didn’t lock and there was no fan/vent in the bathroom There were also black specks on the bedding When you check out they don’t ask you “how was your stay” because they must know the answer will be “extremely disappointing”Now, I’m not writing to bash the hotel, I am hopeful that the problems can be acknowledged and addressed but mostly that guests can know what they are getting before they decide I wish I could post photos here, but I hope my descriptions suffice

The lobby is stunning The staff of courteous and accommodating One improvement that can be made is to the breakfast menu The cooking is a little bit bland

Don’t forget to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking any resort This site will compare countless booking websites and typically will have prices much cheaper than others! Thank me later! This resort is one of the highest rated in this area

I’ve been coming here for a long time If you decide to stay here you for sure will love it I’m sure!Amazing service Recently stayed one night for my wife’s birthday, and we had a mixup with our reservation Long story short, The Ritz gave us a complimentary upgrade to a nicer suite after hearing our struggles Great place, Great Service, and they have a high attention to detail


I’m shocked that this property is still running under the Ritz-Carlton brand in the condition it is I am limiting my feedback to only things that CAN be immediately addressed by hotel management (and shows that they have wholeheartedly failed to perform their job):1- Rooms: peeling wallpaper, condensation stains near the AC vent, broken/loosely put together nightstands, no turndown service, flat out dirty room There were such thick dust spots on the bed frame that I’m led to believe that the room was not properly cleaned for months

Disgusting I wish I could add a picture to this review (I asked to change rooms once and the second room was in the same condition)2- Service: no acknowledgement of Marriott status/upgrades/benefits during check-in, doorman was 9 out 10 times chit chatting or not around to greet/open doors/help with luggageBased on the numerous reviews (which I failed to read before coming), the feedback above is not news to management So my assumption is that they simply don’t care (wonders of the tight job market?)I’m refraining from commenting on how dated the rooms are as the local management relies on corporate to carry on a complete property overhaul But as I pointed out earlier, all specific service and room feedback can be addressed locallyFellow business (and leisure) travelers: if you’re looking for a 5 star hotel, go to the Four Seasons This hotel is simply a Marriott-brand 3* establishment with the Ritz namePS: the lobby is nice, though

The staff is professional, excellent, friendly, and patient All of them would bend over backwards to give us what we needed no matter how trivial The rooms are clean and unique; not cookie-cutter, chain hotel rooms

The entire hotel is unique and has a welcoming atmosphere We stayed here twice on our trip, and all the staff from the owner to the room service remembered us and treated us warmly The hotel is tucked in a quiet street making it easy for ride services to pick and drop off customers We will be staying here every time we visit Philadelphia

Stayed here for a night over the weekend Wow! I wish I had found this place sooner The room was very clean and you could tell it had been freshly remodeled

I stayed in the Henri which was on the top floor on the right side of the building It was very quiet and was a welcome relief from the noise of the city at night The AC took a bit to cool down the room after we checked in, but was eventually able to get it to a comfortable temperature The bed was a bit stiff for my taste, but not so stiff as to lessen my quality of sleep The continental breakfast in the morning was simple, but tasty and was enough for us to eat quickly before checkout If you want a more substantial breakfast, there are plenty of options within walking distance Bottom line if you’re looking for a quiet getaway in walking distance of all Central City has to offer, I definitely recommend staying here!
