Business Trip

This was a great place to stay for meetings in Center City. I had a huge room with a kitchen! I didn't use it but I could have made brownies in there they had all the things I would need. Easy location for SEPTA and close to many businesses. Very comfortable bed and room. Can't wait to stay again.

Fun night out

My hotel experience was great. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room met all of my expectations, and was very clean. The only thing I wish I would have known prior to my stay was the parking fee. I have stayed at other hotels in the Philly area and parking was included with the stay. I was not aware of this extra fee until I woke up the day of check out to an additional bill. I was really surprised when I checked out of the hotel. The employee who checked me in was working and remembered my name and was very personable about my stay. It was a nice way to leave the hotel. It's definitely a place I would recommend to my friends.

Spontaneous getaway

I really enjoyed my stay with Windsor Suites. We were immediately greeted as soon as we walked in and checking in was a breeze. Initially, we weren't assigned to a room with a balcony but after asking for one, they accommodated to our needs. Although they informed us that it would be an extra charge of $25 ( which wasn't stated anywhere on the website ), my card didn't get charged so I assume they just upgraded us for free. Love it. All the staff members are friendly, helpful, and so courteous. The rooms had KEURIG COFFEE MACHINES!!!! Would definitely recommend this establishment.

Perfect Stay!

I could not be happier with my stay at this hotel! From the moment I pulled in to the parking deck, I was met with courteous, helpful staff. I stayed in the city for the weekend while my grad classes were meeting, and I needed to get to Drexel University. The valet showed me a free shuttle to the university and personally walked me to the bus stop. My room was fantastic: Full kitchen (dish washer, oven, counter and bar stools), walk-in closet, and awesome view!! The bed was extremely comfortable the toiletries were from Bath & Body Works, and the Keurig was fully stocked. I just loved all of the Ben Franklin Quotes on the elevator doors, too. Perfect Stay!

amazing evening

Everything was great . I just wished I would've used the parking facilities @ the hotel. When I came out the hotel my car windows was busted out! Had nothing to do with my beautiful night before. Next time I will use the parking facilities.....

Honeymoon Trip

We arrived 5 mins early from the check in time but had given our keys, when we arrived on our room floor, we had to wait for it to be ready. The room was big and comfy, the great thing about it was some of the attractions in Philly are near the hotel. The breakfast was free at the pub inside the hotel.
