... ate food, and even saw NYC! Independence Mall was okay, but I enjoyed the zoo overall. I have made a lot of new friends and everyone should totally go if they have the chance :)

Jenna - I had so much fun going to Philly with Girl Scouts. I love the hedgehogs at the zoo. I also loved the rats, snakes, ravens, and the red pandas. I love the story of the sun on George Washington's chair, so it was really cool to ...

... to get through because I kept forgetting things in my pockets. *sigh* I'm just not used to having so many. Give me a few weeks and I could totally pass this test with flying colors.

And then, once I got to the other side, the security guard asked me if I had a knife in my bag.

Don't worry, guys; I totally played it cool. Grabbing my stuff, I hightailed it out of there as fast as I could. Luckily for me, the guard was stuck in his little booth and ...

... in the background made for an incredible end to an adrenaline filled day. Day 6 left us soaked (on purpose) at blizzard beach waterpark. The racing slides put Emma and myself into a competitive state as we raced the stairs up the hill to take on the next slide. All was going well until we were confronted by one ride known as summit plummet. We scaled the stairs to the peak. Emma confronting the situation with I don't want to!

... giving one evening. It was nothing to do with the offer of free beer on completion. Although not scary whatsoever, it was a little informative, and we met some nice new people. Vince and Coleen, who were siblings from Lyon, France. On this tour we did visit ‘Big Ben Frank’ once again, where this time felt appropriate to throw pennies.

Day two took us to Pennsylvania State Penitentiary, with a 6 strong group trekking for one hour across town to descend ...

This boutique, luxury hotel was right in Philly's Central City. We loved the ultra modern and eco-friendly decor. We were treated very well with an early 10:30AM check-in, two free drink vouchers, and VIP goodies in the room. The hotel also had a daily wine tasting, which I tool advantage ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Embassy Suites Philadelphia - Airport

    Embassy Stes is nice, this one needs a overhaul.

    from

    First let me say Embassy Suites has a great setup for the suite itself. Ideal for families, because the bathroom is in the living part of the suite, not the bedroom as at the Residence Inn by Marriott. The suite is reasonably sized, and the bedroom is reasonably soundproofed from airport noises (and offers a cool view of the airport!). The staff was nice, and the 5:30-7:30 pm buffet were good, as well as the morning breakfast.

    Nice stay

    from

    On our trip back from Barbados I chose to stay at the Embassy Suites Airport Hotel. Arrived at the Airport on January 16th late. Coming from a hot climate we were dressed in shorts and tee-shirts and greeted with 17 degree temperatures. Called the shuttle bus and it arrived in approximately 25 minutes. Almost froze to death waiting.

    Check-in at the Hotel was swift. Caught a late night dinner in the Restaurant which was better than average. The room is exactly like all the other Embassys' I've stayed at over the years. Nice clean and spacious. The breakfast the next morning was very average.

    Overall a nice quick stay. I'm probably not the best judge of this Hotel since we just used it for a place to crash for a night, but I would use this place again.

    Many problems

    from

    When we checked in for one night (late Nov. 2004) we were told by a desk clerk that Sun. breakfast began at 6, which our schedule required us to have, since our plane was leaving early. It turned out that breakfast didn't start until 7--so we were forced to do without.

    Loved the Embassy Philly airport

    from

    We sytayed at this property in June and found the service to be impeccable and the rooms were great. This is the perfect place for a traveling family with the large suites, free full breakfast and pool.

    I would heartily recommend this Hotel

    Average at Best

    from

    This Embassy Suites seems to be on of their older properties. My 2nd floor room definitely showed wear and tear. There are some great ES hotels but this is just average. It does have high-speed Internet in the rooms for an extra charge. There are some newer properties near the airport including a Sheraton? that is connected to the airport terminal. I did get a great deal on Priceline.

    Very pleasant hotel and suite!

    from

    We stayed at this hotel for one night prior to leaving for a Florida weekend. We got an exceptional rate via Hotwire.com. We really enjoyed the accomodations. The suite was large, clean and modern. We had four adults in one suite with plenty of room. The two hour managers reception with FREE open bar and snacks was very nice. I am not aware of any other hotel that offers this amenity. We had dinner at the Embassy Grill restaurant, which was very good and reasonable in price.

    The atmosphere was tropical throughout the building and calming. They offer free parking and shuttle service to the airport. This hotel is nicer than the Sherton Suites which we have stayed previously. We will definately stay here again.

    Don't stay here if you really want to sleep

    from

    My family stayed here for one night on March 26, 2004 prior to our Flight on March 27. We were assigned room 303 (3rd floor). The rooms all look out into the atrium and there is no noise control in this hotel. People were running up and down the floors and all the noise goes right under the room door into the suite. My wife woke up at 1:30 am and found this noise still going on. The room itself lacked quality furniture with a couch that should have been tossed long ago. And we never could locate the remote control in the bedroom. My family and I won't stay here again.

    Not Happy!

    from

    I stayed at this hotel based on *rave* reviews from another review website. Apparently what I expect from a hotel and what other people expect are two different things. First of all, what is the deal with torturing all those poor carp in water that's so shallow they can barely swim in it? I am really not a psycho animal lover, but these poor fish were utterly pitiful. Second, the rooms are dingy and old.

    Good Value for the price

    from

    We stayed at the Embassy Suites after the Eagles concert in Philly on July 9. We booked our room through priceline.com and got a fantastic deal. Our room was an average hotel suite. We requested a king size bed, but they did not have any available, so we had 2 double beds. The beds were reasonably comfortable. The rooms were clean. We would stay there again in a pinch or if we got a great deal on priceline, but I woud definately recommend the Courtyard by Marriott nextdoor. You can see their listings for my review of Courtyard.

    Room 235 is awful

    from

    I was delayed to connect to a flight to Los Angeles, so US Airways paid for me to stay here overnight. They put me in Room 235, which was awful. It smelled of smoke, so I guess I should have requested a non-smoking room. Also, everything in the room seemed a bit sticky, perhaps from the smokers who had stayed there previously. Seriously, there seemed to be a sticky residue on all of the door knobs and sink knobs. The worst part of the room is that the back window is level with the part of the roof that contains all of the air conditioning pumps.
