“Price, Location and Comfort = All Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The historic hotel is a short walk from the Chestnut Hill West train stop. And along that walk you will see all sorts of places to visit: pubs, co-op grocery store, cool hardware store, home furnishings, an actual record store, banks, etc. The hotel's continental breakfast combined the expected food with unexpected place settings -- nice touch. Our room was in the annex building behind the main property, and it was terrific. Modern and stylish. Recommended.

This 36 room lovingly restored hotel sits within a wonderful collection of shops and restaurants. Particularly enjoyed "The Farmer's Market" which seemed to me a mini-replica of the downtown Philadelphia Indoor Market! You don't have to walk outside in order to enjoy first class food and drink at "The Chestnut Grill", but if you do walk there are many places to dine within just a short stroll. Our room was filled with wonderful touches - ours had a gas fired fireplace, infra-red "LED" lit mahogany clad closet, bathroom with tony tub and shower, heated towel rack and floor heater etc. toGiven a tour of other rooms we found them all custom finished and unique. We were lovingly cared for by a highly motivated staff. Rating the entire property on a scale of 0 - 10, I'd give the Chestnut Hill Hotel an "11" (translation, 5 out of 5 stars plus)!

Room Tip: all the rooms are unique with different decor.

My stay at the Chestnut Hill Hotel was absolutely lovely. I was lucky enough to meet the owner who was extremely kind and accommodating to whatever I needed. I was able to eat in their restaurant which has wonderful food as well as tour the area around the hotel. All aspects of this hotel are lovely. If you can appreciate unique and elegant design touches you will certainly love this hotel. Not only is the hotel a treat, the staff is just as wonderful. I will certainly recommend this hotel to all friends that come into the area.

Room Tip: I stayed in the "carriage house" rooms which was lovely. The design touches are beautiful...

The Chestnut Hill area of Philadelphia is a wonderful leafy suburb with cobbled streets and lots of small shops and restaurants with the Chestnut Hill Hotel bang in the middle of it all. Its a small hotel made up of three two storey buildings built close to each other including a renovated coaching house complete with winding gear in the room I stayed in. Really friendly no fuss hotel with breakfast included and in an area that's easy to get to. End of the Chestnut Hill West SEPTA line. Would love to stay there again.

An excellent choice for business or pleasure! You cannot pick a better location. Mica offers haute cuisine and the picturesque views from the hotel are lovely. Walk to train, farmers market, restaurants, galleries and more! Lovely staff; lovely rooms.

A little slice of an NYC village in Philadelphia......

Offers nice continental breakfast, too.

Room Tip: If you need absolute quiet go for third floor. If you need additional space request a suite. They al...

This was a great hotel with a wonderful staff that was very helpful. The newly remodeled rooms were beautiful. I will definitely stay here again when I am in the area. It is in a great location. I would recommend staying at this hotel if you are in the area.
