All our needs were met with the highest quality of service and accommodations. Parking, while not on the property, was very close by and went smoothly. The breakfast was top-notch in a pleasant environment. We liked the historical atmosphere. And the location was fantastic..so close to the historical district and right across the street from the fabulous new Museum of...

This was an overnight trip we booked to see a concert on South St. We had no idea at the time that this hotel was so close to many historical sites. It made the trip that much richer to be able to walk and see things like Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell. The staff was very friendly and made...

Great location, small but clean rooms, and pleasant/helpful staff. Offered close parking at a reduced price --- can't find that anywhere else. The complimentary breakfast is excellent - a variety of delicious fresh food, real plates, cloth napkins, and silverware!

We struggled to choose a hotel in downtown Philly as were weren't sure what we wanted or needed. We are from rural upstate NY and very out of our element in cities.

Great location and beautiful hotel. We were a short walk (about 2-3 blocks) away from the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, museums, restaurants, etc. Charming and historic, but with modern amenities makes this the perfect place for a visit to Philly. The price was reasonable and fair. Parking was affordable for city parking. The afternoon tea and complimentary breakfast made this...

I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to be in the old city. The staff is very nice and helpful. The rooms were quiet no issues with sleep despite the friendly warning that you may want to use a white noise app. Very close to all of your historical spots. I was also impressed with the quality/quantity...
