historic rest

by Hank956

Thank you Brian and Pri for your great attentiveness.

You made the visit very welcoming.

The Inn is situated in one of the older students buildings in Philadelphia.

The elevator the smallest I have ever encountered. But very functional.

The rooms are also small but has everything you need.
The bathroom and shower small but they work very well.
Almost instant hot water.

Desk, TV, refrigerator to complete the package.

The a/c controls the whole floor so hope everyone feels like you do.
I always travel with a small fan, for the hum and some extra air.
Saying that the room had a comfortable temperature.

The shades covered every aspect of light at night. Wonderful

Now the best part of the room, was the bed.
So comfortable, the pillows were soft and firm, the comforter was the best, wish I could pack it home.

Prices were great.
No breakfast but plenty of options to choose from.
The Reading Market just a couple of blocks away.

The Inn is located in a great place.
Lots of historic places and items of interest just around each corner.

Give it a try.
Not a 5 but a 4.8, almost there.

our experience was delightful

by uberjew

my husband and i went to philly in the summer for the first time. we found the hotel to be funky with its own personality... it is a unique space, extremely clean and the front desk help most accommodating. we planned the trip with the intention of using appropriate credit card points... and choice credit card reservations were extremely difficult to work with, ending with us staying there but paying out of pocket.
it was the willingness of the rodeway inn staff to work with us -- moving us to a different room with a kind bed, tv set and nice bathroom. ultimately the trip was wonderful and next time we return, we will be staying there again.
their people skills and willingness to accomidate made all the difference.
