I live in Philadelphia and stayed at this hotel as part of a wedding party. The hotel is very clean, staffed by some of the most sincere and accommodating staff, and in a beautiful location. I stayed for one night but the room was perfect. It was clean, efficient, and very comfortable. The area that it is located at is... More

As a Chestnut Hill College alum, I always admired the Chestnut Hill Hotel and wanted to stay there when I came for a return visit to Philadelphia. My fiancé and I planned a trip to visit the college and my friends and booked a night's stay. The day before we had planned to arrive, I became unexpectedly ill and was... More

I was on a waiting list so I didn't have a choice but to accept a King bed suite. It was very nice and comfortable, but overpriced I thought. It had the price of a 4 star hotel but no mini bar or coffee tea service in the room that was very disappointing. Otherwise, the staff was friendly enough and... More

Located on the beautiful Germantown neighborhood strip. Unfortunately we arrived in the evening and left early AM so could not enjoy the neighborhood. Our room (503) was in the adjacent building and recently updated with a modern feel. Large room with sofa, kitchenette, and 2 desks. Adequate complimentary wireless internet. Very nice. $190 including taxes.

Love this place located within walking distance of shopping and lots of interesting restaurants. The rooms were lovely (although the heat hadn't been turned on and so a little chilly). I do wish they offered coffee in the room but that is a minor complaint. If you have any mobility issues be sure to let them know in advance as... More

Dear Journeyfolk, Thank you for staying at the Chestnut Hill Hotel. We are glad to hear you were able to take advantage of the shops and restaurants. I apologize that your room was a little chilly. Due to the age of the building, we have some rooms that are "seasonal". This means the rooms can operate only on AC or... More

Our third stay at this delightful hotel lived up to all our expectations and more. Every stay has been superlative. The staff couldn't have been more welcoming or more professional. It was like visiting a good friend. This visit, we stayed in the Carriage House, room 602. I had wondered if it would have more of an "annex" type of... More

My wife and I were visiting an Aunt in Chestnut Hills in Mid-September. We booked 3 nights and loved the quaintness and service we received. The continental breakfast was excellent and the coffee was outstanding. The only downside was all the TAX charged by the Government. I would stay again and recommend others to lodge here.
