Great location and plush digs near the Olde CityFlag review
This hotel is stylish and upscale, if a bit business-like, with a terrific location within a five- or 10-minute walk of the historic sites we came to see, such as the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. Overall, it was a great choice for a weekend getaway. The décor is what you’d expect from an upscale business chain hotel: tasteful, with sumptuous linens and modern conveniences. We stayed in a 750-square-foot junior suite with separate sleeping and living areas. There was a king-size bed and a sofa bed, plus two large flatscreen TVs, an oversized desk, small refrigerator, and two bathrooms. The extra space was a big plus. Note that there are only a few rooms in this hotel that can accommodate a family of five. The nicest thing about the room was the tremendous view of the Olde City and riverfront. If we returned to this hotel, I would definitely ask for a room on an upper floor again. It is wonderful to gaze across the skyline of the Olde City, with its steeples and cupolas, at night. Columbus Boulevard runs right next to the hotel, so there may be some traffic noise on a lower floor. There is a very nice heated indoor pool on the fourth floor with wraparound floor-to-ceiling windows and a series of huge skylights overhead. There are wonderful views across city rooftops in one direction and the river in the other direction. My boys also spent a lot of time playing at the foosball table in the corner of the pool area. There’s a door that leads directly from the pool to an outdoor terrace and wraparound balcony that rings the outside of the pool area. I’m sure it is fantastic in the summer. There's a complimentary fitness room with treadmills, ellipticals, weight machines, free weights, and other equipment. Also nice: many miles of jogging paths along the Delaware River, accessible right outside the hotel’s front door.
Tips for Families
Ask for a room on an upper floor with views of the Olde City. There are a few small grocery/snack stores in the Olde City, a five-minute walk from the hotel. We shopped here to stock our fridge with beverages and snacks. The hotel offers a valet parking service for $38 a day with in-and-out privileges. But if you self-park in the hotel’s garage, the rate drops to $25 a day with in-and-out privileges. Just remember to get your dashboard ticket from the front desk so you can come and go as you please.

Hyatt on Penns Landing Philadelphia, PA
The bed and room was excellent!! I was a little upset that I thought it was $20 to park overnight but it was really $30 and that was if you parked your own car. If you used valet, it was $8,00. What upset me was...
Hôtel confortable mais légèrement excentré
Le niveau de confort est bon. Dans l'hôtel, on notera une belle piscine intérieure, donnant sur une terrasse, un café starbucks et un restaurant. Les chambres sont confortables également. Le personnel est discret et serviable. Le parking est un peu difficile d'accès (trois ascenseurs à prendre pour aller de la chambre au par...

Hyatt Regency, Philadelphia
We stayed for three nights and enjoyed our visit to Philadelphia. Our room was clean and comfortable, aside from the wallpaper needing some maintenance, it lived up to expectations. We also had to pay for internet access, which I thought was questionable. The restaurant in the lobby was ...

Hyatt Regency Philadelphia at Penn's Landing
The room itself was comfortable - nice decor. We were placed on a floor with guests attending a gala in the hotel, so we dealt with loud, drunk screaming part of the night. The walls are paper thin, you could hear everything. All the employees were very nice, even passing us in the hallway they said hello. My biggest complaints are: #1 the parking fee […] of $25.00 is actually $30 - they tack on another $5 "parking tax," and they do not notify you of this before, even when you call the hotel and ask the total charge for parking. In addition, that is only for 24 hours - 1 minute over that and you pay an additional $16. This is not information you are privy to either. #2, they charge for wifi internet access, ...
