My visit to Philly was work related, but decided to try a houseboat instead of a local hotel. I highly recommend the Pisces for business, friends or family. I was more than comfortable and felt very safe.I had no worries utilizing public transit and learned a lot about Philly. I hope to come back again with my family. Kids would love it! Read more
So glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us! Thanks so much for the great review! Please do come back with the kids! They'll love it for sure!
Best deal in Philadelphia

A great stay. Not the Ritz but you should already know that already. It was secure, clean, and comfortable. Jack was always available.
We were three guys attending the huge Police Chief show at the convention center. Staying here saved us $1000s and we were still able to walk to the convention center (~20 minutes). Independence Hall was half as close. We never felt cramped.
It helps to be a little adventurous. Parking at Holiday Inn can be challenging at night (it fills up) and it might bother some to be alone in a marina at night but we loved it and would do it again.
Next time I will shop for food and fix it in the houseboat. I was not impressed with the cuisine in Philadelphia.
Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay! Please come back again next year! And thanks for the review!

Every October my daughter, her 2 daughters, her mom-in-law, and I go on a girls weekend over Columbus Day weekend. This year was our 13th anniversary and we really wanted to do something different. The Pisces in Philadelphia was awesome. The houseboat was spotlessly clean and supplied everything we needed. It was within walking distance to all the historical sites, and very convenient to wonderful restaurants and Starbucks. We loved our stay, the gentle rocking of the boat, the deck to sit out and enjoy drinks, the other boaters were friendly, and it was in a very secure, locked, marina. We hated to leave, and will definitely do this again. Read more
So glad to hear you enjoyed your stay on Pisces! We were so glad you were able to make the trip after all. Thank you for the great review! You're welcome back any time you're looking for a girls getaway!
Unique perspective to see a city like Philadelphia
Left on 04/04/2013 for a stay in April 2012 | Cathy
Unique experience to see the city from the water point of view. We enjoyed meeting the "locals" who actually live in the harbor on other boats. Wonderful views at night to see the bridges. Nestled away from the street scene, but close enough to walk to Old City. Drove to Italian market section of Phila to buy snacks to enjoy on the boat. Truly felt like we were "living large"! Safe environment.
