We loved the Chestnut Hill Hotel, a historic inn located in the historic Chestnut Hill community of northwest Philadelphia. This boutique property has just 36 rooms, recently renovated along with the hotel. We stayed in the main building. Our room, though small, was beautifully furnished and decorated. Framed botanical prints added a nice touch. The bathroom was elegant, with marble, modern fixtures and lighting, fluffy towels and nice amenities. We also enjoyed the framed black-and-white historic photos of the area displayed in the main lobby and other common areas. The complimentary breakfast was served in an elegant room off the lobby. The food was excellent and enhanced by cloth tablecloths, floral china dishes and fresh flowers on each table. The servers were friendly, courteous, and efficient. A regular restaurant, the Chestnut Grill & Sidewalk Cafe, is onsite. The hotel is just nine miles northwest of Center City, but is a nice alternative for those who prefer a quieter experience in a tree-shaded neighborhood with an abundance of historic homes and other buildings. It's fun to explore the shops and restaurants near the hotel along historic Germantown Avenue, a cobblestone street where trolleys used to run. Parking is conveniently located behind the hotel next to a farmers market. Our only complaint was that our room was not cleaned one day. We had to request that the bathroom be tidied and fresh towels and soap brought. Assume this was an aberration because the hotel seemed well-managed overall. Also, there was some noise from a restaurant under construction at one end of the property, but that is temporary. Overall a very pleasant stay.
