I did like the small quaintness. Location was very good. Staff very nice. Breakfast was ok. Go half a block to 2nd street for some great eats. Wish it was closer to a train station. $3.00 for a bottle of water in the room. Really! Give me a break.

The location is great. If you are looking for somewhere to eat there are about 100 places within a 2 block radius. It is also right in the middle of the historic part of Philadelphia. The free breakfast is great and staff was very friendly. This hotel is a historic building so it is well kept but lacks some of... More

This boutique hotel was charming and very comfortable. The location is fantastic, with everything in a comfortable walking distance. The room was beautiful, with lots of charming detail - the bathroom large and the show great. The staff were fantastic, helpful and friendly. We loved the gingerbread houses on display.

Walking in the door, you get that "good vibe". We received a warm reception from LaReen at the front desk. A display of gingerbread houses by staff are in the foyer - and guests vote for their favorite. Breakfast is good, and all the staff of very service oriented. 4:00 tea time is an extra treat. There is construction across... More

We stayed for a weekend getaway before the holidays to check out some holiday doings and also the historic district. We've stayed at other hotels in the historic district in Philly... None match the charm if this small, quaint hotel. Rooms and amenities were great, service and staff couldn't be better, location is perfect . Great value, highly recommend!!!

We paid 208 to stay one night in a small room in the 2nd floor. We took advantage of 16 dollar parking. Room is very small but the bed was comfy and the shower worked well. Overall good since we weren't there to hang out at the hotel
