3.5 star hotel
Area: University City

4 star hotel
Area: Logan Square
4.68 mi from Boathouse Row
Best Rooms: The Logan Circle and Swann Memorial Fountain room types offer the best views from the west side of the building; these are the odd-numbered rooms ending with numbers *45 - *59 (e.g. 245, 451, 657).
Best Rooms: The best views from the hotel are found from rooms facing west, overlooking the parkway, on floors 15 and higher.
Best Rooms: The hotel can't offer a true city view, as it's surrounded by other buildings; one side of the building faces the street while the other faces the Shops at Liberty Place.
Best Rooms: The hotel is surrounded by tall buildings, so you won't find much in the way of views.
Best Rooms: The best views can be found in the Cityview Queen rooms ending in *09 on floors 15 - 22 (e.g. 1509, 2009); they offer 3 different views from 3 separate windows. Rooms ending in *01 - *09, on or above the 15th floor (e.g. 1501, 1804, 2207), facing Sansom Street offer great views at night because the city lights twinkle in the distance.
