Easy walking to Chestnut/Walnut shopping area. My only complaint was the outrageous price of the valet parking. If you can, look elsewhere to park nearby. Other than that, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Room was spotless and spacious. The restaurant and bar that are attached to the hotel are top notch. The hotel is steps away from the Reading Terminal Market, a must-experience destination in Philly with every kind of food you can imagine and great little vendors selling everything from jewelry to housewares.
