Excellent choice! – I enjoyed the atmosphere and the menu had many choices...you can't go wrong with this venue.
Dependable digs boast consistent service and ample amenities. – In Short
This highly recognized hotel chain has been taking care of business and leisure travelers since 1957. Professionals appreciate the business center, meeting facilities, in-room work area with ergonomic chair and no-glare lamp, and express check-out. Those who come to kick back take advantage of the pool and gift shop. Spacious rooms include a comfy bed with a quilted-top mattress, oversized comforters and feather pillows. Additional amenities include a fitness center, whirlpool and concierge services.
Not recommended - Poor Service – You?ve been warned. Those who enjoy a few drinks, food, and sufficient service while watching the game(s) best take their time and money elsewhere. From a resident of center city whom frequents similar establishments in the area, I would describe the experience here as ?poor? at best. The environment is adequate and the food was decent for bar fare. The beer is cold as well, just don?t plan on getting very much of it. Simply put, the wait staff is inattentive and rude. We arrived just before tip off, were seated and served immediately, and then ignored for the remainder of the game. We spent nearly the entire second half with empty glasses while the wait staff huddled around the register, chatting to each other and generally ignoring their patrons. Toward the end of the game our waiter spent ten straight minutes rolling up silverware, twenty feet away without even a look in our direction. When I asked another waitress for service, she told our waiter, who continued to finish his silverware rolling before delivering our drink and the check without any word, much less an apology or attempt to provide any further service. Upon paying the bill I left a brief but appropriate note to show my dissatisfaction which was met with snickers when our waiter showed it to other staff members in direct eye-line of our table. When I asked to speak to the manager, she stopped to speak to our waiter first and while she attempted to act apologetic about our experience, offered little compassion, no remedy, and simply explained how we were the first to complain about our waiter. Champions will not receive any further business from me and I would not recommend it as there are certainly establishments in the immediate area that better serve patrons with far less aggravation and much more satisfaction. This was the first time I have ever asked speak to a manager regarding poor service and the first time I have felt compelled to write a review to warn others of my experience.
A FIRST CLASS EXPERIENCE – The staff did a wonderful job for my sisters party. The rooms were excellent,the prices very very reasonable, and the services were perfect.
A MUST VISIT BEER & SPORTS BAR – Across from the Hard Rock, Champions Sports Bar is the best with many TV's in all sizes tuned to different sports its a bargain in the heart of the tourist area. Great beer selection professional employees and CLEAN (rare for sports bars in philly). Accessable by public transit (don't drink & drive) and cabs. It's a can't miss if you want to see a game without some smuck playing music. Best bartender ask for Francisco courteous and very professional
Out shopping and needed a drink and a snack for energy, Champions sports bar was the pick. Our server was very nice. Food was good, prices reasonable. Just right for a quick pit stop.
