I have stayed at this hotel twice- once in October 2013 and once in May 2014. The location is great- next to many restaurants and shops. The breakfast is really good- berries with yogurt, eggs, bread. The rooms are very nice. The beds are comfortable. There is a nice happy hour. My favorite part of the hotel is the service.... More

My husband backs away from 'boutique' hotels so I didn't say the boutique word to him when he asked where we were staying in Philadelphia. I knew I would love it, but he REALLY did. The room was great, so perfectly clean; the hotel well located, the staff were quickly our friends-- we met such nice people. We stayed only... More

After the anonymity of a large DC hotel, how nice to stay where you're acknowledged and recognised each time you pass through reception. Our room was tastefully decorated, the bed was comfortable, the room was clean - and what joy to find staff who were happy to talk with you and ensure you enjoyed your Philly stay.

Dear PaPaYoYoKildare, Our staff tries very hard to make a connection with each and every guest, which is not difficult to do when there are only 23 rooms! As all of us have an affinity for Philadelphia, either as life-long residents or as people who have chosen this city over any other, we are very keen to make visitors aware... More

I really liked this hotel, which was located on a quiet side street near Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia. Our room was pretty good, nice furnishings, good size and comfy bed. It was clean and had excellent housekeeping. A couple of niggles - the wifi was dreadful and there was no water provided in the room - you had to pay... More

Just returned from spending 2 nights at this charming property in a great location just off Rittenhouse Square (literally 1/2 block off the square). Everything is lovely, the staff are friendly and helpful and our room was very quiet and, though small, had everything we were looking for including a very nice bathroom with a large walk-in shower.

Dear Cathy W, Thank you very much for finding us to be charming and a great value. We are quite proud of the fact that neither our rooms nor our staff are “cookie-cutter,” as we all have our own uniqueness that provides a more personalized experience.

This was a great place to stay for several days in Philly. It's so close to the square and all the nearby shopping, restaurants and bars. For being in the middle of everything it was very quiet. I never heard any traffic noise or other hotel guests. The staff were attentive, but not overly so. I had help while having... More

We were somewhat disappointed to find this hotel was not on the square, but on a side street which is still called Rittenhouse Sq.Street. After we got over the disappointment of not find our selves on the square, we found the hotel quite charming, and staffed by a most helpful, friendly, and caring staff. They really are the best!
