Upgraded to Presidential Suite for our one night in Philadelphia. Lovely, duplex room with spiral staircase, fireplace, two bathrooms, only thing lacking was a bathtub. Parking in nearby garage a challenge, given bad weather. Suggest valet parking for a hotel of this quality. Great staff, friendly and helpful, greeted with wine and cheese in the drawing room, festive way to...

We arrived at the hotel around 4pm on Saturday, New Year's Eve. Since traffic was difficult getting there and parking is off site we opted to valet park the car (additional $8 + overnight parking lot $23). The management was very polite and helpful. They walked us to our room assisting with the luggage. There is a lot of stairs...

This is just the most charming BNB in Philly. My stay here gets better each time. Mr. Daniel is just so wonderful and the staff are very helpful and friendly. The accommodations are very pleasing and filled with all sorts of charm. It makes it tough to leave. Thanks Mr Daniel

This hotel is okay. But it's old, it feels cramped (that stifling kind of small) and is not really on Rittenhouse Square (it's in an alley) and it's steps from the actual, amazing, famous Rittenhouse Hotel - so there's no reason to stay here. The staff is lovely and helpful ... cramming your family and it's luggage in the tiny...

We found this for a quick romantic overnight in the city, on a quiet side street but a short walk from the park. Small boutique style with a continental breakfast in the basement, but the rooms were well appointed and front desk staff very attentive and nice. Would highly recommend.

Tucked away on a charming side street, this small hotel is perfect for a quiet stay. Very French in its ambience, the concierge was extremely helpful and professional. The room my husband and I shared was pretty and comfortable with a clean, nicely stocked bathroom. For me, the bed was too soft and I ended up having to sleep, part...
