Hotel is right next to Independence Square, our room overlooked the square and right onto Independence Hall. We could hear the Centennial bell ringing (softly) every hour, which added to the charm. We called ahead to have a crib ready for us as well as a few items we had forgotten, all free of charge. Be aware of expensive parking (you are in the city after all), and there aren't a ton of restaurants within walking distance. We loved the hotel though!

Nothing more than a decent hotel in a premier location. Without the location, this hotel would be nothing special at all. Same goes for the price, the price did not match the hotel - just the location.

Checked in for a wedding weekend of 9/24-9/25. Pros ; Nicely decorated hotel in close proximity to the Historical District. Nice Restaurant and Bar on facility that's open late. Also Breakfast served in am and Breakfast Cafe.
Cons; on site valet parking on site $33/night which ends up at $44 a night after tax. Check in was a nightmare at 4:30 pm . 8 people ahead of us , only two staff members at desk. Took over 20 min and we ended being 19 min late to wedding reception.

Everything was good. Breakfast was tasty, as always at BW. Pretty, historic building, clean, nice rooms. Amazing staff. Nothing to complain
But bear in mind that the description on Expedia is not completely accurate - there's no safe in the room, they have it only downstairs in the lobby

We visited Philly for a concert at the BB&T Pavilion in NJ. We had a great time. Not only were we in the best place for the concert, but close walking distance to Old Town historic sites. I really liked the city, history, and people, and would love to go back and spend more time exploring.

We didn't know the bathroom was up a very narrow winding stair case, which would be difficult for many people and impossible for some. Also loft had giant beams every three feet with about 5' head clearance, making it challenging for adults to maneuver. Other than these items, the home was comfortable and well appointed.
