Every review mentions the location and it is great. However, equally important is comfort and, at least for me, quiet. This lovely old building in the historic part of town is perfect. The staff is friendly and helpful. We even got a complementary bottle of champagne on our anniversary. There are less expensive places to stay but sometimes you really... More

The room decor is charming, and the entry lobby is lovely. Con: parking garage is over a block away, which is a tad inconvenient, but the hotel has made accommodations to make it... More

This hotel is 2.5 blocks from Constitution Hall and the Liberty Bell. Everything in Independence Park is within walking distance. 2.5 miles to the Art Museum. Hotel was modernized and nice. Nice breakfast each morning as well. Parking is about a block and a half away.
