For our purposes it was perfect location. We had an appointment at CHOP. The packing was convenient, the restaurant in the lobby was good and a Wawa across the street...what else do you need for a one nighter?

I didn’t like that I wasn’t told up front the room wouldn’t get serviced unless I requested it. The room was warm overnight. Other than that, it was ok. Too much money for the room, there was nothing special about it and the parking had a fee
