Style your Philly vacation your way with the apart-hotel at The Windsor Suites Hotel Philadelphia. Continental-style terraces greet you outside, and once you've checked into your own city-facing balcony (selected rooms), views of nearby City Hall are yours to enjoy. There are even extended-stay openings and unfurnished suites if you need a temporary home in the city.

Those feeling more active can try a few open-air laps in the rooftop pool (seasonal opening).

great place to stay downtown

Clean comfortable room. Located close to everything down town. Staff was very friendly. I was surprised to be charged $33 a day for the hotels parking garage but that was my only complaint.

Excellent stay

This hotel is in a excellent location of Philadelphia. I actually prefer it to the Embassy next door. The rooms are more modern, and the elevators are reasonably quick. The front staff was extremely courteous to me, and they gave excellent directions to nearby attractions. Since the hotel is on Ben Franklin Parkway, taxi cabs are usually right around the corner. There are decent lunch options right around the corner, like Au Bon Pain. Also, a 24/7 WaWa right around the corner for all of your basic needs. They also got a gym and a free business center, in case you need to print out a ticket or need free internet access. Oh yeah, the WiFi is free! The Embassy may give you free well drinks during happy hour, but the free WiFi comes in pretty handy. Oh, did I mention that the staff was exceptional? I know I did, I just wanted to point it out again.

Business Trip

This was a great place to stay for meetings in Center City. I had a huge room with a kitchen! I didn't use it but I could have made brownies in there they had all the things I would need. Easy location for SEPTA and close to many businesses. Very comfortable bed and room. Can't wait to stay again.

Fun night out

My hotel experience was great. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room met all of my expectations, and was very clean. The only thing I wish I would have known prior to my stay was the parking fee. I have stayed at other hotels in the Philly area and parking was included with the stay. I was not aware of this extra fee until I woke up the day of check out to an additional bill. I was really surprised when I checked out of the hotel. The employee who checked me in was working and remembered my name and was very personable about my stay. It was a nice way to leave the hotel. It's definitely a place I would recommend to my friends.
