We blocked rooms at the Chestnut Hill Hotel for our wedding & we couldn't have asked for a more wonderful place to stay. The hotel staff was extremely accommodating & very friendly. They went out of their way to make sure that we had the best experience. We rented out rooms in the main building, which were charming & very... More

We were stuck in Philadelphia during the January blizzard - and stayed in this hotel for 2 nights.. They were amazing and very accommodating during our experience. They even helped shovel our car out of the snow. They had many personnel clearing the snow, trying to stay one step ahead of this storm. Thanks so much for making what could... More

The hotel itself was nice and you can't beat the great location and free parking. One problem was the walls are pretty thin and there was a crying baby throughout the night which, unfortunately, kept us awake most of the night...and we can clearly hear conversations. Also, nobody informed us that the complimentary breakfast ended at 9:30am so when we... More

Having been raised in Wyndmoor the Chesnut Hill Hotel was a premium hotel to stay at. The Melting Pot inside was the perfect thing to have here. The hotel is old but the staff makes sure everything works and that your stay is memorable and insure your return in the future. The rooms are nicely appointed and have the features... More

I really liked this hotel. Walking distance to good restaurants, boutiques and antique shops. The room was comfortable, thoughtfully decorated. Bathroom was nicely done. Parking, wifi and breakfast was included. Close to the train station if you want to go to Philadelphia center.

This is a wonderful hotel to those who look for great service, exigent style and accomodations, you are nearby PHI, you should have a car, really like this one. Price is high, but you understands it once a couple of days of stay.

I booked this hotel for a workshop that I was organizing. The workshop was held at a nearby venue, so we only used the hotel for overnight accommodations. I was given a room in the carriage house, and was awed by the luxurious details. The bedding, the amenities, the white terry-cloth robe, the clawfoot bathtub plus upright shower, and the... More
