Consider the price point of the product. This is actually quite nice.

The nearby Holiday Inn Express-Midtown would classify as their market similar. That shideous Holiday Inn building would not register near the level of this Cambria building. And I'm not talking about age and wear. I'm talking about design and aesthetics, particularly when it comes to integration and consideration from multiple angles. If there is one thing the Holiday Inn building does successfully, it is by being soo nothing-burger that it actually disappears, therefore making it a quality.

Might be a bit hard considering they're a firm based in Philadelphia.

Disagree 110%... look at other Cambria Hotels around the country. This is by far one of the nicest ones.

Plus, DAS has done other nice work like the Beacon, the Sansom, the Granary and the Hyatt Centric Hotel replacing the Pete's garage.
