The only problem we encountered was when our taxi could not find the hotel! However, after meeting up with friends we went out and enjoyed Philadelphia. The hotel is a small, family run establishment and is nice and cosy. Our previous and following hotels were in the Hilton chain. This was not one of those but it was clean and comfortable. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful and this created a feeling of security and homeliness. The hotel is located close to an eight-lane highway but with the windows closed and a very efficient air conditioning system there is no problem. The restaurant is something else. Here we had probably the best meal during our State-side visit. The wine-list is listed in the Guinness Book of Records. It is worth staying here for that alone! The breakfast is a continuation of this feast and the decor of the room quite interesting. A great location for probably the most historic city in the US.
