Excellent
Wow- we found this by chance, and it turned out to be right near Chris' Jazz Club, a place on our itinerary! I got a text after I got in from the front desk that I could text back with any requests, even for a local restaurant suggestion, so I asked where to get a good local cheesesteak! We were directed to a GREAT one. - The front desk didn't have a big wait going in or out. The bathroom was clean and the bedding and A/C were great. - Samsung TV. Complimentary happy hour cocktail and coffee in the AM. I'd love to return when in the area!

There was a leak in our room late at night and we had to move rooms because of it. However we got moved to a lower rate room than what we had payed for and they gave us parking for free because of the problem. In my opinion I would have liked a little more but it was out of my control from there.
