HEHEHE, Alright, so, Aussie's love their sports and so do the Americans ... but OMG do they like to take cheap shots at each other, and they have a seriously inappropriate knack for insulting each other...

... get some more information on the history of the city. On the way out of town we stopped at the 'Rocky' steps made famous by Silvester Stilone, he even has a statue out the front. Dylan ran up and down the steps a few times in his hoodie to feel the part. The most memorable part of our stay was being woken at about 3:30am to a very loud bang bang, followed by the loudest fire alarm I've ever heard! We could here the others run out of ...
Oh what a beautiful morning! At 6:45 AM when we awake the sun is shining and the temperature is 51 degrees, warmer than it's been at that hour in months. Spring is finally here and the garden is coming to life; there are hyacinths around the oak tree, a few flowers have appeared on the Japanese quince, the first Magic Carpet double early tulips in the whiskey barrel by the garage door have opened, there is a respectable showing of daffodils along the creek ...

We picked up things like coat hangers, a kitchen roll holder, scales, a DVD player, a toaster etc. They were all things we would have loved to have bought but had to be taken off the list when our budget ran out. Ciara made my day when she gave us the most BEAUTIFUL purple orchid. Thomas has been given strict instructions to stay away from the plant. When ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Philadelphia Downtown Hotel
I agree: avoid the Wyndham Plaza
I stayed at the Wyndham Hotel at Franklin Plaza. Unfortunately I read the reviews too late, but I must say they are right. My room was very noisy (just behind the ice machine), and the staff unfriendly and not able to help. I also tried to leave my luggage for three days in the hotel while going on a week-end trip, but they told me that this was not possible. Taken all this, there is no reason why I should ever come back to a Wyndham hotel.
I stayed at the Wyndham Franklin Plaza in April 2003. After I settled down and went to the bathroom, I saw many moldy spots around the bath tub. I mentioned it to a supervisor who happened to be talking to a maid cleaning another room and requested that they take care of it the next day. Nobody came to clean it. When I checked out, I mentioned to the front desk, expecting to get a note in the mail to apologize for the problem and thank me for pointing it out. Haven't heard from them at all. Considering the rate my company paid, there's absolutely no excuse for moldy bathroom and shoddy service. I remembered also writing a complaint about another Wyndham in South Carolina, but received absolutely no reply! I guess they just don't care about the guests or their business!
Four Star Quality...Not
Expedia gave this hotel a four star rating. They should reconcider. The rooms were outdated and there was a stale odor in our room. Housekeeping did very little to clean the floors or remedy the odor. Check-In took 15 minutes and our bill was incorrect at Check-Out. Needless to say, we were disappointed in this hotel.
Avoid the Wyndham!
I've stayed here twice. Once for a personal vacation and once for a business convention. Both times I was treated rudely. The first time, they didn't even have my reservation, but I had the confirmation from the hotel so they had to give me a room. Wonderful. I got a handicap room which was supposedly non-smoking, but obviously not. Also, we had our car parked but were not informed of a charge for this until we checked out. The second time I had a better room, bt the wait at the front desk for anything was outrageous. There was never anyone at the concierge desk. And my co-worker called down to have tissues sent to her room (they are provided in the bathroom) but was told they don't have any!Dont' stay here. The Ritz is slightly more expensive, but I wished we had stayed there.
Rude people and out standing prices
I hunted down the so-called best price I could find. After there "taxes and fees". The price jumped another 20$. When I first arrived I was completely offened at the fact that I had to pay another 20$ to park. I dont understand why the parking wasnt included with my aleady too expencive room. The women at the front desk was very rude. Once up to the room. I find water bottles that say if you drink this we'll charge you 4$. Once I checked out the front desk lady was very rude and un-friendly. Every employee I came across was cold and rude. No one said good morning back to me. I smiled and got no responce. Hands down one of the worst hotels ive ever stayed in.
Overbook, busy, and staff was surly and unhelpful. Avoid if possible.
Worst stay ever!
There was hair in the sheets and bathroom! Room service took an hour and was cold when it arrived. Charges that were to be subtracted from my bill were never subtracted. This hotel spends more time on their glorified lobby than on keeping their guests happy.
I work for a multinational organization and have literally stayed in hotels from Mongolia (and there aren't many to choose from there) to Budapest and I can honestly say that the Wyndham Franklin Plaza was the worst hotel I have ever had. I was there for a popular Philly Road Race and the WFP was the expo hotel. The hotel was packed - which would be ok - except the front desk staff sucked. They couldn't give me directions to the race start and didn't even have a race brochure so they could figure it out. When I asked the front desk clerk for directions he told me he didn't know and it wasn't his job; no offer to help. The antiquated elevators were slow and overcrowded and it took me, my infant daughter and my senior citizen mother 20 mins. to get from the 3rd floor to the lobby to check-out (stairs were not an option with luggage, stroller, and small one). To top it all off - $24 for valet parking ($17 for self parking). I haven't paid that in NY or Moscow. Then the valet told me I'd have to get a receipt from the front desk before I could have my car - NOT MY PROBLEM!!!!
Recently my family took a trip to Philadelphia. I found the Wyndham hotel to be the best priced and the most convenient to attractions.
I was a guest for 5 days at the Wyndham Philadelphia at Franklin Plaza during mid-April. Having just stayed for 5 days in a Hilton Hotel in another market for the same daily rate, I was struck by how poor the service was at the Wyndham. In just about every way, the service at this hotel is exceptionally poor. I waited in a line to check-in (15 minutes). The wait staff at both the lobby bar and the 1st floor restaurant were extremely poor. Any time I contacted the hotel operator whether it was to arrange a wake-up call or to order room service I typically waited for the phone to ring 20 or more times.
