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. The suite-style rooms feature refrigerators, ovens and dishwashers, for those who wish to fix their own meals.  Or guests can dine downstairs at the Irish-style pub, Con Murphy's, for some robust traditional dishes. Those feeling more active can try a few open-air laps in the rooftop pool (seasonal opening).

Spontaneous getaway

I really enjoyed my stay with Windsor Suites. We were immediately greeted as soon as we walked in and checking in was a breeze. Initially, we weren't assigned to a room with a balcony but after asking for one, they accommodated to our needs. Although they informed us that it would be an extra charge of $25 ( which wasn't stated anywhere on the website ), my card didn't get charged so I assume they just upgraded us for free. Love it. All the staff members are friendly, helpful, and so courteous. The rooms had KEURIG COFFEE MACHINES!!!! Would definitely recommend this establishment.

Perfect Stay!

I could not be happier with my stay at this hotel! From the moment I pulled in to the parking deck, I was met with courteous, helpful staff. I stayed in the city for the weekend while my grad classes were meeting, and I needed to get to Drexel University. The valet showed me a free shuttle to the university and personally walked me to the bus stop. My room was fantastic: Full kitchen (dish washer, oven, counter and bar stools), walk-in closet, and awesome view!! The bed was extremely comfortable the toiletries were from Bath & Body Works, and the Keurig was fully stocked. I just loved all of the Ben Franklin Quotes on the elevator doors, too. Perfect Stay!

amazing evening

Everything was great . I just wished I would've used the parking facilities @ the hotel. When I came out the hotel my car windows was busted out! Had nothing to do with my beautiful night before. Next time I will use the parking facilities.....

Honeymoon Trip

We arrived 5 mins early from the check in time but had given our keys, when we arrived on our room floor, we had to wait for it to be ready. The room was big and comfy, the great thing about it was some of the attractions in Philly are near the hotel. The breakfast was free at the pub inside the hotel.

Awesome location

We were able to walk to many local attractions from the hotel. We even opened our room window and watched a parade go down the street. Historic feel but very comfortable. Not a large space. Overall great experience!

great place

This has been a nice experience. It has the right location and the staff is knowledgeable. This is only one downsize, the parking is not free. $35 for parking when anyone can park for free after 8pm on the streets is ludicrous but that's just my opinion. Overall , this hotel gets a "HIGH FIVE"

Amazing Trip

I wasn't 100 sure what to expect, as I booked last minute and had never stayed at the WIndsor before. The price was cheap, but the hotel was great! It was super clean, and the staff was extremely helpful, cheerful, and friendly. The room was really comfortable and spacious, and I was surprised to find the little kitchenette. Everything about our stay was great, and I am looking forward to stopping back here next time I am in Philli overnite. The best part was probably the location, right in center city!

Great location!

Overall, we had a great stay! The location is awesome, and we enjoyed both restaurants downstairs (both offer discounts for hotel guests). The front desk staff is very friendly and helpful. The hotel and room was new and updated. Our only complaint would be that the water pressure in the shower was very low.

Good place to stay for the holidays

Location was good. Price was also good compared to other hotels in the area. Staff was friendly as well. Only issue was that the kitchen looked nothing like the picture. It was probably half the size as what I saw, but it was still manageable.
