Pros and Cons
There are more pros than cons, so I would definitely recommend The Westin located in the heart of Philly. However, the biggest con was that the hotel proceeded with a fire drill, in which the fire alarm went off with a PA announcement. Personally, this was the first time ever to be in a hotel fire drill. Another thing was that, it would've been nice for the staff the customer know ahead of time when checking in. I was travelling with my 1.5 year-old son. My son takes his morning nap around 11am for about 2-3 hours. As my son was taking his nap, into it about 45mins or so, the fire drill PA announcement is made and the fire drill happening with the alarm sounding loud for at least 15mins or so. I tried everything to keep my son asleep, but he woke towards the end and I had to deal with his tiresomeness for the whole day! Location, yes, great! Shopping mall connection, yes, great! But, the fire drill part was terrible! So, beware!
