We spent 8 days here, and loved it. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful, and the location perfect. Our two bedroom suite was lovely and well appointed. There were nice shops and fine dining restaurants really close by. Hope to return soon!

Fabulous location at Rittenhouse Square and the suites are incredible...huge and nice and quiet! The suite has a large living room, kitchen and beautiful bedroom. The bathroom is modern and all white marble. This hotel is a real winner! Will definitely be back!
