the hotel was clean, staff was very friendly, location was great. the only problem i had was guests checking out at 6:30 a.m. and obviously wanting everyone to know they were leaving. i know this because they stood in the lobby talking in their loudest voices, laughing, screaming into their cell phones and clunking their luggage. this had nothing to...

Wonderful boutique hotel in OldTown ,Philadelphia. Room ha king size bed and all amenities. Staff is efficient, pleasant and courteous. Location hard to beat - can walk to most Philadelphia center city attractions. Neighborhood is old but safe with its own charm.

Great place to stay...comfortable bed! Close to the Visitor's center which is a main stop before heading out to all the attractions Philly has to offer. Enjoyed the city as much, if not better than Boston for the history lessons.

I stayed in this hotel for one week while doing research up the street at the Chemical Heritage Foundation. The hotel is listed on the CHF's website and the location was great. The hotel is historic with a lovely Victorian style lobby. My room was on the 4th floor. On the plus side, the room was very large, quiet and... More

Our stay could not have been better. The staff was very attentive and knowledgeable. They gave us great tips on where to visit, eat, etc. The room was very comfortable. The breakfast was terrific as well. It is the perfect location because you can walk pretty much anywhere if you want to see the historical sights.

We stayed here one evening on a recent trip to the Philly area. We wanted to stay here because of the close proximity to the historic district, plus the hotel offers free breakfast. The hotel is within walking distance to the historic sites. A definite plus. The breakfast was decent - eggs, cereal, waffles (with the Liberty Bell!), oatmeal, sausage,... More

Having stayed at many historic hotels over the years, this establishment falls extremely short of it's ratings and reviews. We had reserved a larger room with a rollaway bed for our daughter, the room was so small that we had to move furniture into the hallway to accommodate her bed. The rollaway bed they brought in was one of the... More

Really enjoyed my stay; one night for business, but it's so close to the Liberty Bell, etc that I was able to walk over and see it after work. Right in the city, hotel was still very quiet. Room was small with oversize bathroom, spotlessly clean. Breakfast in the morning, included in price, was very nice-eggs, sausage, make your own... More
