“A Five Star Hotel on the Main Line”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2012

I normally don't write reviews for hotels, but the service and ambiance of this property deserve merit. The photos on the internet do not do it justice.

The Wayne is an absolutely wonderful little hotel, that exudes charm and elegance....from the moment you arrive, it continuously grows as your visit extends. Upon first impression you will immediately recognize the attention to detail in every aspect- from beautiful garden, to tasteful, playful furniture and customer service that the Four Seasons and Ritz could take notice. Tom, the front desk manager, set the tone as we entered the hotel. He was hospitable, attentive, and extremely professional. Our stay started on the right foot thanks to his demeanor and kindness.

Attention has been given to every corner, from the foyer to the lovely restaurant (which I believe is improperly named: Paramour). The cuisine and wine list is phenomenal!

The rooms are clean and well appointed, tasteful furniture and kept up in restoration. Everything is well kept- nothing to complain about......no stains, no frayed edges, perfect carpets, tasteful wall paper that matches the stitching on the bed coverlet, nothing that looks like it needs replacement.

Mike and Ryan in the bar are both attentive, and provide fun conversation, if you so wish. We met quite a few international travelers and locals at the bar, and enjoyed their company in this friendly atmosphere.

The breakfast served is lovely and the lighting in the hotel is fabulous, no dark nasty corners.
I highly recommend this establishment and will be staying here again in the immediate future.
Kudos to the owners, management team and staff.

Regards,

Kevin E. Knox

We see relatives in Wayne maybe once every two years. LOVE coming back to the Wayne Hotel, feels like home. Since we have returned, they have opened the new restaurant, Paramour, although we did not get a chance this time to dine there for lunch or dinner, we did enjoy their excellent Continental breakfast! Great room, great service, good to see familiar faces again. Next time...lunch or dinner!

I have had the pleasure of staying at the Wayne Hotel once a week for the past year.The accomendations have lessened the stress of my travel schedule and time away from home. A special mention of Tom Watkins and Jeanine Walsh for the excellent service they provide. It is always welcoming and the new restaurant is fun. My family has also enjoyed coming to the hotel.

Great old hotel that's been redone and done well. My room was clean and comfortable, not huge but really comfortable. The bar and restaurant are great, food was outstanding and the bartender was really knowledgable. Whenever I am Philly bound on business this is my spot. Can't miss.

Lovely renovation, very well done. Room was large and had a very comfortable King bed, desk and sitting area, Victorian decor yet a flat screen tv on the wall. Two sink bathroom, great shower head. Complimentary breakfast included delicious danishes and all the usual continental breakfast offerings rather elegantly presented. Staff was helpful and friendly but not fawning or obsequious. Parking was easy though a little help with luggage might have been nice, though we did not ask for it. Less pricey than the Marriot Courtyard a couple of miles down the road and much more charmin.

Room Tip: East side rooms get lots of morning light. Bays give a view to street.

My wife and I came to Wayne to see our nephew play Lacrosse for Villanova this past weekend. The hotel is in a great location. The rooms were renovated and up to date. The shower strength was awesome. The beds were comfortable, and flat screen TV's were a plus. Though we did no eat in the resturant, the bar was perfect. We had great service! Mike was relatively new to his position, yet the wine recommendation was a home run. Wine selection was impressive, by glass and bottle. Only complaint was the closed captioned on the TV...Without a doubt, we will stay at the Wayne hotel for any future visit.

We found the hotel was beautiful and in a great location. Within 1 block were numerous shops and restaurants. A short walk to the train station and 30 minutes puts you in Philadelphia.

Would love to come in the summer and sit on the front porch. The rooms are all quaint and nicely furnished.
