One night stay on a Saturday night. Easy registering and soon I was in my room. The room was extremely clean and comfortable. The hotel was quiet which made for great sleep. Breakfast was served in a lovely dining room. Not extensive, but, filling. The hotel sits on Germantown Avenue in a historic section of Philadelphia. Super restaurants and boutiques... More

I recently spent two nights at the Chestnut Hill Hotel and could not be more satisfied. The location and neighborhood provide a good taste of Philly, the room unique, clean and comfortable (I was in the Carriage House), the staff very friendly and supportive and the continental breakfasts first rate. I will certainly plan to stay there again - hopefully... More

It was a great surprise to have someone welcoming us when we arrived . The room was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. The staff was pleasant and accommodating. It is a great place to stay and it has a great market near the hotel.

This one is as nice as they get! Without it being a 4 seasons or a Ritz, the rooms are super nice and if you're in the area this is the place to stay. Great location in the middle of chestnut Hill near all the shopping and restaurants
