This is one of the most comfortable hotels I've stayed in - and certainly the best hotel bed I've slept in. The staff were warm, welcoming and helpful, and breakfast quality and choices good. Ours was a standard double room, which was certainly spacious enough, and the bathroom was roomy too. If comfort and quality matter to you, this is... More

Second time I've stayed here with my family and we love it! The staff is very friendly, the beds feel like you're sleeping on a cloud and the location is fantastic. Two blocks from Rittenhouse Square, lots of great restaurants and shops nearby and only a short cab ride to the heart of South Street. To top it off I... More

We love this hotel. The rooms are spacious, the bathrooms are big, the toiletries are great, and the staff is friendly and efficient. The coffee in the lobby in the morning is free and good. The workout room is kept nice and cool and has great equipment to choose from. It is in a great location, too!

I visited this property for a two day corporate meeting. The attention during the meeting was superb and they had great AV/Wireless service as well. It's pricey- which you would expect from a luxury property. My room was very nice- clean and relatively spacious for a city hotel room. The bathroom was nicely appointed although my room only had 2... More

My family and I stayed here for a couple nights for a wedding. We were welcomed upon arrival and were taken care of quickly. All the staff of warm and very inviting. They seemed to really take an interest in you. We'd stay here again.

I am a regular guest the staff know and great me by name. There are special amenities in my room when I visit and if there is anything that is not to my satisfaction or if I have a special request the staff are very responsive

We stayed in one of the suites while visiting colleges in Philadelphia this month. It was perfect for 3 people - a nice big bathroom and a full size fold out sofa. King size bed and sheets were good. It could have been a bit colder in the room - the big down comforter would have kept us warm in... More

We stayed only one night but listened to how others fared in their rooms. We all did fine. This is an up-market hotel close to city center. Valet service is needed to park your car. This was done with speed and care. Every employee we met was pleasant and capable. Food for a private brunch was delicious and well prepared.... More

Convenient location, quiet rooms and excellent staff. Rooms are decent size but not well planned. Mattresses are too soft. Great breakfast and wonderful lobby lounge. Bathrooms have single sinks and a decent shower.

Nice area of the city, many restaurants, shopping nearby. Liked the green space of Rittenhouse Square. Staff at hotel were friendly, nice breakfast daily (included in our room rate). Our room was on 6th floor, quiet, large, nice bathroom with a walk-in shower.....really very comfortable for our 5 night stay. We did the art museums and used the Flash bus......don't... More
