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.

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

great base for sightseeing

The room was comfortable and spacious. (We have previously stayed, at bargain rates, in some tiny rooms in Philadelphia) It has a great kitchen, with dishes utensils etc, but we didn't use it. There were some tiny flaws such as a burned out light bulb and slow draining sink and tub, but I imagine these would have been remedied had we stayed another night.The lobby was under construction but it didn't bother us. The location is terrific near museums and city enter.

Great Room & Staff Except...

We stayed here last minute because our trip got extended another night. The price was great especially for the location. We walked into the room and it was huge. We though, what an amazing place and great value. That was until we needed to turn the air conditioner on. It turned on and next thing we know the temperature in the room was going up, and fast! Nearly 5 degrees in just a few minutes. I called the front desk and told them my air conditioner was not working. They said that the entire hotel does not have air conditioner and that we have the luxury of opening a window. Really?! THE LUXURY?! No one mentioned to us when we checked in that the air conditioner would not be working. That was the VERY LEAST they could have done so we didn't bother turning it on. The staff was great besides that. I would only stay here again if they got the A/C fixed though.

great location in the city

We were in Philadelphia for St Patrick's Day but not by design. This hotel was at the start of the parade, and it was crowded with revelers. We enjoyed the stay. The staff was friendly, the place clean despite the partying, and its location was perfect for the museums along or near Ben Franklin and the colonial city. The room was spacious, and there was actually a small kitchen. There were two good restaurants/bars in the hotel and many more within a short walk.

Moderately priced hotel near the museums in Philadelphia. Hotel and rooms have recently been renovated. The rooms are relatively large and include kitchen fixtures. A good choice

Great hotel. Staff members were all very friendly and made sure I had everything I needed. Room was on the 15th floor with an amazing view. Very spacious and the kitchen was awesome! Wish parking wasn't $30+ per night but otherwise everything was great.

A hotel on an upward trajectory

This hotel has been around a long time, and the reviews have steadily improved. There was still construction going on when I was there, but only in the lobby that I saw. The room itself was fine, there was a decent kitchen with supplies, none of which I actually ended up needing. The room was quite large, with a massive walk-in closet. Things were quite, and on the whole it was a fine time. The location is good.
