... Nice to be missed. I'm actually very happy that my kids are fine without me always being around - makes me feel good that they are developing more independence and can handle the short departures I make for my work from time to time. ...
... disapointiong, it was kinda hard to see what the machines were doing beacuse they were closed, and it was dirty. But it was cool to see a bunch of shiny coins on a conveyor belt. And we didn't get a free coin:( haha. But, it was pretty good all in all.
As our last hurrah, we ...

... river so after the sun had set I crossed the road and took a few photos of the Ben Franklin Bridge. I'd heard bad things about safety in Philadelphia and after Atlanta I was feeling cautious. However, I couldn't believe how quiet it was, and the people that did pass me were hardly the kind of gun-wielding idiots I'd imagined, although I was in the tourist area.
The next morning I ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Inn at Cherry Hill
My wife has severly handicapped ankles and we placed our reservations online for a ADA room on the first floor. What we got was entirely different from what I ordered and payed for. I had to wait a while to be recognized because all the desk people were deep in a personal conversation. When I was finally noticed I gave the clerk my paperwork and credit card and she gave me room 352. The paper work I handed to this person who will vote no doubt clearly stated a handicapped room and a roll-in shower plus a first floor room. Room 352 is not handicapped accessible so our two day haitis was ruined. When I complained to the front desk I was told nothing can be done because the ADA rooms were filled. With all the work I had to do getting my wife in and out of the hotel it was not a vacation for me and I believe I injured my back. Although the room was very nice and clean the experience was ruined whenever we had to go in and out of the hotel or to the pool. We will never recommend the Clarion Hotel nor will we spend time there for any reason.
Only if you have to ...
We just stayed 2 nights at the Clarion Hotel in New Jersey and while the lobby, restaurant and conference center are fine, the rooms are horrendous. The rugs hadn't been vacuumed in a while because there was talcum powder all over the floor along with toe nail clippings. Yuk! The tub in the bathroom had so much mold and mildew, I hated even stepping in it to take a shower ... forget about the idea of a bath. The wall paper is peeling everywhere and when I tried to take my mind off of how bad the room is by watching television, the remote control didn't work. What a nightmare!
Horible dirty dump
spent two nights here thank god, rooms dirty bedding dirty i will post pics soon as proof of how dirty, no hot water and no warning on arrival, staff ignorent and unhelpful all in all a bad experience you honestly would be better off in a motel.
My boyfriend and I wanted to stay in Philadelphia to celebrate my birthday weekend. Unfortunately, all of the hotels in Philly were sold out so we decided to stay in nearby Cherry Hill instead. I can't speak on the other rooms, but the Utopia Exotic Suites is definitely a good value if you like Poconos style resorts. We stayed in the ancient Greece room and found it quite romantic and cozy. My only complaint is that there is no late check-out offered, so check-in early to make the most of your stay.
Stay for business, not for pleasure
Rooms were clean and hotel was nice for a quick business trip. The staff was helpful until a Friday night wedding in one of the big conference rooms. When we called at 11pm to complain about the loud music (three floors below us!) they offered to move us to another room instead of trying to quiet down the booming sounds beneath us! Otherwise, place was acceptable for biz travel, but I wouldn't stay here for the fun of it!
Stayed here for one night. Check in was quick. The room was clean, but had a strong perfumey smell, not sure if it is what they use to clean or if a previous guest spilled some. Bed was comfortable.
The location is about 15-20 minutes from Philadelphia with many restaurants nearby, but not as many as there are at the Exit 36 hotel row off I295. As I got this hotel from Priceline, I should not have been given a receipt, but I did. It first showed the charges billed to my credit card, but then told me it was billed to Priceline. The rate I got was very good. But if I had to pay the going rate, I would stay elsewhere.
Noisy room, slow elevators cost me 5 months of med care!
Noisy, basic room, no help from the staff.
There were people running around in the hallway till after midnight (other guests--this was a weeknight), lots of noise from outside by the pool (even though it wasn't open), and the elevators were very, very, slow.
When it came time to check-out I waited 15 minutes for the elevator. I finally hefted my bags down the stairs. I strained my back doing so and ended up needing months of medication, doctors visits, and finally physical therapy. Okay, maybe that would have happened the next time I lifted something, but you shouldn't have to start your day carting your bags down a dimly lit stairwell.
This is the third time I have stayed at this hotel. I like the hotel and the location. I chose it due to its proximity to Philadelphia. It is easy to get to Philly from the hotel. It is about a 15-20 minute ride. A bit longer during rush hour. The hotel rooms are clean and average sized. Some of the furniture is showing its age but not that badly. The hotel offers free continental breakfast with AAA. Add $3.00 and you get the full buffet. The hotel has a nice bar with entertainment and a good restaurant. I have stayed at the Comfort Inn in Philadelphia and like the Clarion much better. Another reason for staying here is the savings on the valet parking. many of the hotels in Philly charge $25- $30 per day for valet parking.
We wanted to find a fun, romantic anniversary getaway in New Jersey without paying $300+ B & B rates at the Shore or slipping into the No Tell Motel. We discovered the Utopia Exotic Suites, eight new theme rooms within the Clarion Hotel in Cherry Hill (themes include Egypt, Ancient Greece, African Safari, etc.). For $149, we escaped to the Paradise Island Suite: delightfully cheesy, with hand-painted tropical murals, beach chairs, a double Jacuzzi, beach movies, a tanning bed, a wooden deck, and yes, mirrors on the ceiling. The room was basic but clean and new, and we felt miles away from our busy lives and the winter weather. We also found excellent restaurants within 5 minutes drive (the best BBQ ribs ever at Red, Hot, and Blue). We're returning to try out the Garden of Eden Suite; the appeal of the Arctic Suite and its polar bears is still a mystery to us!
OUR WEDDING WAS PERFECT!!!
My husband and I chose the Clarion for our wedding in June 28, 2003. It was LOVELY to say the least!! The newly re-finished ballroom "The Windsor" was absolutely perfect to accomidate our 200 guests (many were from out of town). Steve (catering manager) couldn't have been more helpful and was extremely easy to work with-he was great!!! The cocktail hour was outside (the day we beautiful) and all of my guests LOVED it, so different from most weddings you go to!!!
They served massive cheese trays, fruits and staff went around handing out appetizers as well. It was lovely.
The room (WINDSOR) was amazing--we still to this day get comments about how HUGE our dance floor was, which was perfect because everyone danced ALL night long (as Alison in Catering :)!!!) It was a BLAST!! The food was amazing, and Steve offered us a tasting before-hand so we could pick what we wanted to have. We decided on the chicken and salmon which guests LOVED!
Also, it's in an AWESOME location -right off of many major highways, which made it so easy for our guests to find!!! We didn't have one problem with that as some do!!
I am a very picky person and expect the best (esp for my wedding :)), and the Clarion delivered 110%. They were laid back, organized and knew exactly what I wanted.
I DEFINITELY would recommend this place to anyone that wants a decent size ballroom, great food, convenient location and if you want your guests to consistently tell you that your wedding was the best they've EVER been to!! Feel free to contact me with any questions!! :) WE HAD THE TIME OF OUR LIVES AND THE CLARION WAS JUST WHAT WE WANTED!!!
