My wife and I live in Philadelphia, and to celebrate our 10 year anniversary, we decided to go to Chestnut Hill for the weekend, and we could not have been happier. We were greeted with refreshing cocktails as we checked in and a complimentary bouquet of flowers waiting in our room. We were staying in the carriage house and it... More

In light of the high midtown hotel prices, the Chestnut Hill Inn was a good value. I was disappointed with the location of my room as it overlooked a flat roof with the a/c units. As another reviewer experienced, I dropped something under the bed and was grossed out by the filth. There was even a champagne cork under the... More

Dear Arandomheart, We are sorry to hear you did not fully enjoy your stay at the Chestnut Hill Hotel. Because we are a boutique hotel, all of our rooms are different as well as the views from them. In the future, it is possible to request a room overlooking Germantown Avenue or the Fareway. We understand your disappointment in and... More

Chestnut Hill Hotel was my home away from home for 3 weeks due to work being done in my apartment. I could not have asked for a more positive experience. From the moment I walked into my charming room, I was enamored through to the day I checked out. And it wasn't just because the bed was extremely comfortable and... More

Chestnut Hill Inn is a wonderful small hotel. Beds are comfy- really comfy. The room itself was big enough and squeaky clean. Bathroom was pristine.Hotel was quiet---we heard no street noise and no hotel noise in our fourth floor, street-side room. Breakfast, which is dubbed continental, includes make-your-own waffles, cold cereals, bagels, pastries, hard boiled eggs, etc. Dining room is... More

I stayed in the Postal Building and it was so comfortable, clean and designed in such an unusual way. Remnants of ancient postage stamps adorned a wall and blind in this very contemporary setting. The bathroom fixtures and details were some I would like to have at home. The market in back and the colorful chairs and halls outside bloomed... More

Great place to stay with good access to SEPTA and Center City Philly. Very friendly staff and clean and well maintained rooms welcome guests with easy ubiquitous internet access. Lots of good restaurants, including the hotel itself and Paris Bistro next door (you will need a reservation!) in charming Chestnut Hill. We love staying here.
