best western philly

location, price
rooms could use refurbishing. A small frig would also be nice, not enought TV stations, front desk not responsive to requests. Housekeeping ok, but forgot towels. location of hotel is great, price was reasonable. Did not have chance to use pool--air conditioning worked well. Shower was hot and full stream.

Great Value

Location; price; friendliness of staff; good-sized rooms.
Great location for the Philadelphia Art Museum. Good coffee and deli just up the street in the little strip mall. Very easy and frequent bus service to the Philadelphia Historical District. Beds are nice and soft. Plenty of pillows. A fun adjacent pub with a lively pool table. This is an older facility, so don't expect the latest amenities. But it's great value for the price.

worth the money

cheap - I got discount from this website convinent - they have their own restraunt and bar friendly - staff are good parking - spacious
I think for a one night stay, it will be a good choice. It is cheap, a biggest advantage. If you try to stay long, you need to think twice.

Great deal for Location

For its location in downtown Philly, the Best Western City center is a great deal. Its not a super fancy hotel, but it works. The restaurant did have a strange odor, but the room was fine. Also, great water pressure in the shower.

Cheap but Decent

Cheap, well maintained, fairly close to sights and good food.
This place was about half the price of other places in the area. Still close enough to the sights to be useful. The room was clean and well maintained. The staff was helpful. The hotel is old and somewhat gloomy. It is not a destination hotel but a good place to sleep at the end of the day. The air conditioner worked well but was loud and squeaky. The front desk had maintenance check it out but told us that all of the rooms A/C's suffered from this problem. Maintenance couldn't make the A/C quieter. To get to many of the sights, be prepared to walk about 20 minutes (nice walk) or ride the bus (right in front of hotel) or call a cab. You are extremely close to the museum of art, the park and the Rodin museum at this location though.

Decent hotel
I would definitely stay here again for the price and convenience. It wasn't a "perfect" hotel but well worth the price.
