Good location, not so good rooms

Location: On Race street. Central to most touristy and business needs. Convention center walkable distance. Lobby: Shabby. Staff polite. Room: Shabby with wash basin right next to door. Paint peeling from all doors. Bathroom just tub and toilet with no space, no basin. No closets, just a rack. Internet patchy. Breakfast: Hearty, in warm but tiny basement. Very helpful server.

The staff were great, very helpful. The gift bag was a really nice touch. The location was great, with walking distance to the hop on hop of bus, and food markets. The only bad thing is the room had a lot of noise due to the water pipes.

Decent stay in a very good location

I booked my 2 night stay at the Days Inn at the last minute for a conference in Philadelphia. Hotel was priced decentl for a single room with two double beds. Building itself looks newly renovated. Room was clean and facilities were decent. Continental breakfast was a welcome addition. Staff was helpful and friendly; no problems with checking in and out. The best thing about my stay was its location: just at the back of the convention center, it was very convenient to go back and forth between the center and the hotel. It's also right inside center city, couple of blocks from chinatown, reading market and city hall and less than a mile from Rittenhouse Square. Since it's at the back of the convention center, I felt safe walking at night because the streets are well lit. In all I was satisfied with my stay.

Cross over the highway and park on that side of the town, plenty of free street parking.

Near convention center

The air conditioner in my room did not work (room 312). Even though the staff tried to fix it it would only last a few hours and then quit. The staff tried their best but to no avail. I do have to give a pat on the back to Kenard, Bryant and Chris who were most accommodating. The owners need to shut that room down until the air is fixed.

Bad Experience

Arrived at 6 pm for check in only to be told that they overbooked and there were no double rooms left. We were given a room with room with one double bed and two very uncomfortable roll away beds. Next we discovered the air conditioning did not work. We were provided with a fan. Room was on first floor and there was much noise throughout the night, including someone knocking on our door at 3 am. Hotel is located close to convention center, but also next to a homeless shelter. The continental breakfast was ok, but the toaster was broken. When we complained about these issues, hotel desk clerk refused to discount our room. Ask for a manager but was told they would not be in until after we left the next morning. Stay Away.

So so accomadations

The last two days of my stay, the elevator didnt work, I had to ask for towels as the housekeeper hadn't left any and the air wasn't working right in my room. I would say it's ok for a one or two night stay but definitely not more than that. I would pick a different place next time.

AC doesn't work

We stayed at this hotel for the 4th of July. The AC seemed to be running continuously but there was also a portable AC unit in the middle of the small room. Dispite both of these, when we woke up the room was 81 degrees. After realizing the portable unit was empty, we called the front desk. The receptionist told us to fill it ourselves. Once the AC unit was working again the room started to cool down to about 75. The outside temperature was only 61 and overcast but the room never cooled down past 75.

Nice place to stay

This hotel does not look like much from the outside but it is very nice inside. The interior looks all very new and it is quiet and clean. The beds look new and the matresses are nice and firm. They have a very nice coffee and breakfast bar in the morning that is covered by your stay. It is in Chinatown and within walking distance to just about everything in downtown Philadelphia and it is reasonably priced. I would stay there again if I go back.
