5 out of 5

Lovely hotel

Pros: Very close to metro that takes you straight to the centre, Independence Hall etc.
Cons: We were woken up by the cleaner knocking the door at 8:30am asking what time are we checking out although the check out is not until midday.
Location: Easy to get around
We enjoyed our stay in this hotel. The staff at the lobby/ reception are very polite and accommoding. We arrived early in the morning from Boston and they're happy to store our luggage for us while we head to Downtown and visited very historical places. The room is big and everything is clean- very comfortable bed too. It was a hot day and the pool was a bonus . This hotel is close to 30th station, metro and few restaurants across the road. Very happy.
