    This hotel has a great design to it. I really dug the contemporary feeling. It stood out from your average hotel. The staff seemed friendly, and I was pleased to learn parking was included with our stay. I can't give it a full 5 stars because the finishes seemed slapped together or possibly just worn out (cracked tiles/grout) and while they do provide free wifi, it seems they purposefully slow it down so you'll want to upgrade to their paid, "fast" connection. Overall though, I'd definitely stay there again. The location was very close to the airport and major highways enabling you to get just about anywhere fairly quickly.

    When I stepped into this hotel and heard the house music playing faintly in the background, I felt like asking the desk attendant, “Where’s the party?” Yeah, it’s an airport hotel, but for a quick second I was brought back to those days when I used to hang out in South Beach hotels. The lobby décor is silvery/black with pops of pastel colors and some the coolest artificial flowers I’ve ever seen. The rooms were clean, but a bit too small for my taste. I felt as though I was in a fancy airplane when I entered the room. BUT, everything one needs is available: docking stations for your computer and phone and there aren’t any cheap free bath products here: The soaps and lotions are by Bliss. There’s no restaurant, but there’s a grab-and-go area equipped with healthy snacks (and candy too). If you’re looking for a quiet place to stay, I don’t recommend Aloft – the music that was playing faintly in the background when I arrived is cranked up to a higher volume when the sun goes down. But if you’re looking for something other than a stodgy airport hotel, I highly recommend.

    Maybe I secretly want to be Swedish. Or perhaps it's just that this place reminded me of great times had in northern Europe? Whatever it is, I really love this hotel. Colorful, sharp, fun and engaging in every detail. And it's an airport hotel. Who loves an airport hotel?? Really, it's almost a waste that this is in a terminal parking lot rather than at a hip downtown location. But that's not going to affect my rating this time. I'd love to miss a flight just to stay here. In fact, next time I pass through Philly Airport, I plan on it.

    Finally a different choice in hotels ! Such a modern European flair. Good price, free wifi, pool, exercise room all with daylight shining in the windows. Snacks and lite food available in the lobby. Even a pool table in the lobby. Though a bit far from the city if your interested in historical sites.
