    Hilton Home2 Suites hotel on tap for Philadelphia:)

    A $60 million hotel is planned for Center City Philadelphia, the developer and city officials said Monday.
    Home2 Suites by Hilton, with 246 guest rooms, is planned for 12th and Arch streets, across the street from the Pennsylvania Convention Center.

    A summer 2013 opening is planned.

    In University City, at 4109 Walnut St., a $50 million Homewood Suites by Hilton will add 136 rooms when it opens in spring 2012.

    I don't think these are such great locations. The University City one is close to the Penn campus (but not the University hospitals), although it's just slightly beyond campus in an area that is viewed as a bit sketchy most of the time (the borders delineating what is considered safe seem to change from year to year).

    And just from a market segment point of view, they really have their brands mixed up as to which location they are building. Because of who they target, the Home2 should be in University City and the Homewood should be next to the convention center.
