This hotel was carved out of what had once been Philadephia's greatest hotel. Most of the building is now offices and high end shops (Ralph Lauren, Tiffany). I'm not wild about the way they cut the place up. The hotel lobby is comparatively small and cramped; probably half of the rooms face an interior, enclosed courtyard, offering views of other rooms' windows, and are, therefore, dark and depressing. Some of the classic rooms have 25-foot ceilings and huge windows, but nothing else to recommend them aesthetically. There are newer rooms that on the one hand are not special, but on the other are actually more comfortable. The hallways are done in a late 19th century "period" style that is garish and unattractive. Service was diffident at best; air conditioning was weak; and the furniture looked and felt heavily used. The hotel was dominated by several wedding parties held on the same day--not a welcoming environment if you weren't a guest. The beds were very comfortable, though, and I appreciated the plentiful and powerful hot water. On the whole, I wish we'd stayed some place else less "historic" and more accommodating. I'm sorry I can't say better things about the Bellevue; it's name demands upgraded facilities and better management.
