Over Easter weekend my husband and I had an opportunity to go back to this hotel. Again, it was a very relaxing time, after the winter the East Coast had just experience, it was great to get away and enjoy walking outside and enjoying the area. The restaurant served great fish tacos and a great steak. Very relaxing from the... More

My wife and I made it back to the Chestnut Hill Hotel over Easter weekend and, as is always the case, our stay was wonderful.

Great spot on the main street in Chestnut Hill. The room was well appointed, bathroom appeared new and the shower was great. There's a wonderful restaurant/bar attached to the hotel that serves excellent food in a friendly atmosphere. Good drinks, too!. Chestnut Hill is chocked full of botique stores, restaurants, shops, markets and more and all are easily accessible from... More

This is the third time I have stayed at this lovely hotel. The standout factor is the service. From the moment you enter the lobby, you feel you will be well taken care of. The rooms are so charming and well appointed. The market place has been renovated and is so inviting. We had coffee in the evenings and sat... More

My only regret during my first stay at the Chestnut Hill Hotel was that my wife wasn't with me to experience it! I corrected that this past weekend when we both visited the Philly area for the Phillies-Red Sox opener. We even got the same room that I had last time, and it impressed my wife as much as it...

The Chestnut Hill Hotel is a hidden treasure! We stayed at this hotel, along with our guests for our wedding and we couldn't have been more pleased! The entire staff was more than accommodating and we couldn't have asked for anything more. Anything we needed, they took care of it. All of our guests raved about how nice, unique, and... More

I just got home from staying at this really special Historic Inn - it has been recently renovated and is just really comfortable and done in such great taste. It has a marketplace also redone and was so easy to get delicious lunch and other delicacies. I had a great night sleep with everything you need to enjoy being away... More

I cannot wait to come back. We were so lucky to have a beautiful room in the carriage house. This inn has been renovated from a historic inn and truly done in the most charming way. Nothing is missed. Our room had so much detail and included a fireplace which was so warm and cozy and a lovely modern bathroom.... More

Dear marilynSmith96, It is wonderful to hear that your stay was perfect and that you can’t wait to come back! The Hotel was built in 1894 and has been completely renovated in the past 3 years.

You will love the style of this place. We just spoke with the front desk team and they were wonderful. Can't wait to return and visit and checkout the rest of the boutique room types. And it is amazing to have two great restaurants under the roof. Definitely a must try.
