Lovely room, good amenities, pleasant helpful staff. Great location. Somewhat difficult to return to hotel at night due to gate. Limited expensive parking. Good voices are limited as well, but a number of restaurants within walking distance.
Easy access to I 95.
First of all, this hotel is beautiful, quiet, and well staffed. It is a perfect spot for walking to the Venues. Here is what you do. The walk is about 15 minutes on a well lit street with plenty of people. DO not walk with traffic as there is no sidewalk and you'd have to cross off ramps (Who would think that is a good idea?). At the gate leading out of the business park, cross the street at the light. Walk against traffic using the sidewalk and lighting. When you reach the Event Venue, cross back over. Very easy, not a lot of energy, and beats traffic/parking. There is a Park next to the sidewalk. No, there are not monsters lurking but there ARE lots of police around. I brought a small flashlight and didn't need it. There were small groups of women walking in 2's or 3's and no one seemed at all concerned. Even the front desk clerks were recommending it to other people. There is also a restaurant right at the edge of the business park where you can grab dinner without driving into the City. Good food, not the best in Philly but it will be fine for this purpose. Hit it on the way!
