This is an ideal location for all the museums, Rittenhouse, and Walnut St. shopping. Previous reviews criticized the decor, but we found that it's just a matter of taste. Most importantly, the carpet, wallpaper and lighting was new and immaculately clean, but are taken from an era when striped wallpaper, dark brown furniture and empire-style flourishes on the lamps were a lot more popular. The biggest fault was lighting over the bathroom sink, less than 30 watts, making shaving an impossibility. I had to bring cups of hot water for my razor into the well-lit room and stood in front of another mirror. All the other lighting seemed excellent. We could hear a phone conversation from the adjacent room; fortunately, he only had one prolonged call.
