                                      They were able to extend our check out time closer to our flight out. The location for city touring is excellent, walking distance to about everything.

                                      The air conditioning unit blows right on the bed but you clearly needed to keep it going or the room got too stuffy. Very uncomfortable climate control. The stair areas were very dirty!

                                      Location was excellent. We took a cab to the Visitors Center and the cost was just $6.00 but if you are healthy and like to walk it's a great sight seeing walk from the hotel to the 6th & Market Streets area. Plus the hotel is located on the Avenue of the Arts so you are steps away from the Kimmel Center, Academy of Music, Merriam Theater to name a few. Plenty of resturants in the area.

                                      The cost to park. I thought $25.00 a night is excessive if you are a guest at the hotel. I feel it should be free. We have stayed at other Doubletree Hotels outside the city and did not have to pay to park so why aren't accommodations made for city guests?

                                      You can't beat the location. The hotel staff were very welcoming, helpful, and professional.

                                      There are a number of small issues with the hotel. One of my problems is charging for internet access in your room! Come on...this is 2012 . I can buy a coffee for a $1.50 and have access to the internet yet when you pay almost $200. for a room the hotel wants to charge you! . Ice machines were not on every floor and the one I was directed to was broken...so was the printer in business room. We had to change rooms because our initial room was a conjoined room that allowed us to hear every noise in the next room. Shop around...there are probably better options.

                                      I arrived at the hotel having forgotten my luggage and the front desk staff was very friendly and super helpful.

                                      The room was clean and everything was in working order. It's very close to major attractions and the train station. We walked everywhere. The hotel bar was very lame though, we didn't eat and left after we had one drink.

                                      Lame and over priced bar, there are so many better options around this hotel.

                                      The Doubletree Hotel Philadelphia was a great hotel, the food at both resturaunts was excellent and all the staff were very friendly and accommadating.

                                      It is in a great location, easy to get to. Staff at the front desk were pleasant and helpful. My room had a great view of the river and Broad Street.

                                      Parking was expensive but convenient. The extra charge for Internet access was an unpleasant surprise and I had to do w/O. Even McDonalds provides free Internet. I had dinner at the Balcony, the ny Strip Steak was full of gristle. The rest of the dinner was fine.

                                      Charge for WiFi. Lack of room facilities, no fridge, no room safe. Poor fitting room door, far too much light from hallway at night; far too much sound from hallway. Green con - change linen every three nights but no sign of any recycling programme, nor reduction in room cost.

                                      Parking was horrible and expensive. resturant was dirty, food was bad and over priced pool lift was broken and my handicapped mother was unable to use the pool. They charged you to watch tv, come on that should be included!

                                      Fantastic location. Efficient and courteous staff; decent breakfast, nice decor.

                                      Perhaps could have a little better information for tourists. Reception was ready to help but a table with brochures would be nice.

                                      Proximity to the theaters and fine dining. Employees were professional and friendly. Great complete breakfast in the executive lounge.

                                      Bed sheets had unwashable stains on them. Delay in receiving extra towels (at least an hour wait) due to not enough employees working.
