Early in December we stayed at this property for our anniversary. Asked for a room with a fireplace and it was lovely. Cost was a bit more than a standard room but it was great! Room was located in the Carriage House behind the hotel so it was even a bit quieter too. Continental breakfast was wonderful served with real... More

This a wonderful place with spacious, quiet rooms in the heart of bustling Chestnut Hill. The staff is eager to help, but discreet. I loved the small touches that say comfort--lighted closet, L'Occitane toiletries, plush robe. The prices are quite reasonable for this high level of service.

I enjoyed my experience at this hotel ONLY AFTER being able to change rooms, to a room that looked like the pictures shown on the website and most shown on Tripadvisor (I now see one picture on Tripadvisor similar to where I was placed - the "barn annex"). I stayed in the Carriage House, which was on the side of... More

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
