Great location, good bed, sheets,Frette towels but--dust hanging from ceiling and we had quite a small room even at $300 per night. The light shines through the glass bathroom door when putting it on at night causing sleep upset to my partner.

Dear Aren A, We are pleased to hear that you appreciated our great location and the high quality of our beds and linens. Additionally, we are very sorry that your partner's sleep was disturbed by the translucence of the pocket door in the bathroom. This is an issue that will be addressed when we undergo renovations, but in the meantime,... More

We enjoyed a two night stay in this exquisite hotel close to Rittenhouse Square. Staff were welcoming and helpful, polite and friendly. Rooms were very comfortable, breakfasts excellent. The 'soiree' and bottle of wine and the chance to meet and speak to fellow guests from everywhere was innovative and enjoyable. The location was ideal. No more to be said .... More

I just had a wonderful stay here on a business trip. The staff is so friendly and accommodating. They helped me several times with requests (an appointment at a nearby hair salon), directions (my driver was lost) and a cup of tea when I really needed one. This hotel is actually a beautiful converted row house. The lobby and parlor... More

Welcoming Staff. Inviting lobby. Comforting room. Fantastic fresh bathroom, (with the exception of no bathroom fan, Is this OK to the rest of you?). I have always dreamed of living in a prime Philadelphia row house, well this was a taste of downtown not to be missed. Very clean & freshly maintained historic property perfectly located near some of the... More

Charming hotel in historic district just off Rittenhouse Square and in walking distance to lots of good restaurants and services. Although the lobby is a bit drab and underwhelming (please replace those black marble floors with wood!), the staff is welcoming and helpful. Our room overlooked the street and was spacious, well appointed and clean. The breakfast was delicious particularly... More

This was our 4th or 5th stay here. We always get the same room and are very pleased. I would have given an excellent rating except this time we found the mattress a little too soft and a slight dip in the center. The breakfast was good, we each had an omelet cooked to order. The staff was friendly and... More

This boutique hotel is a good choice for visiting Philadelphia. It is very clean, nicely decorated and has a friendly helpful staff. We were there on Halloween and the hotel had a beautiful display of pumpkins and corn stalks adorning the front facade of the building. It was a $7 cab ride to visit the Liberty Bell exhibit at Independence... More

We spent 5 nights at this hotel in Sept., 2014 and had a most enjoyable stay. We were greeted by name as we stepped out of the taxi and received personal service every day.

Perhaps my taste is a bit too discerning (or demanding. or snobby) than the rest of the reviewers. Struggle to see how folks have made this a top 5 hotel on TripAdviser. If you have not traveled the world or stayed at some finer places, can see how this would be a win. Sorry to say the only thing boutique... More
