This hotel is situated in the outskirts of Philly with wonderful shops and of course the Iron Hill Brewery. Parking can be difficult as the car park is shared by the local market but the lovely attendant will make sure hotel guests get a space. The entrance to the hotel from the car park is beautifully landscaped and inviting. We... More

I was in the area on business, so the hotel was chosen for me. I was pleasantly surprised by the whole experience in this small hotel: lovely, knowledgeable staff, comfortable and aesthetically pleasing accommodations, such as the lovely china at breakfast. I'd be happy to stay there again.

Visiting my sister and brother in law who live outside of Philly, my husband and I stayed at The Chestnut Hill Hotel. This historic and charming inn is located pitch-perfectly near little shops and plenty of restaurants with divers menus. The staff was professional yet warm, and our room was nice, if tight, with a renovated bath and high end... More

The Chestnut Hill hotel was a fantastic place to spend our anniversary. The room was modern and beautiful, and the location was perfect! Germantown is so charming, and truly felt like a city block in Europe (without the craziness of Center City Philadelphia). There are so many cute shops, bakeries, and restaurants! If we ever end up in Philadelphia again,... More

The Chestnut Hill Hotel was our "home away from home" for 3 weeks. The hotel staff was very friendly and accomodating to our needs. We stayed in one of the suites (206) that suited our needs (although could use some updating from a decor standpoint a bit dark) and we also spent one night is 503 ( a kitchenette) that... More

Recently I was able to stay at this hotel. Since it was in Philadelphia I knew it would be cool, however I was taken aback by the high end, "rustic" charm of the hotel. Rooms are a great collage of modern and tack room motifs. The gardens in the back are a sea of color. The waterfall and the "Disney-like"... More

The Chestnut Hill Hotel is exceptional in every way. When I walked through the door of the room, the first thing I did was snap a picture to send to my wife who could not accompany me.
