My husband and I recently visited Philadelphia for five days and stayed at the Penn's View Hotel. This is the perfect location for sight seeing, eating, walking around and experiencing old Philadelphia. Most sights are within walking distance and those that are not are easily accessible via the bus which stops ten feet away from the front door. The room rate includes breakfast in a charming restaurant, beautifully presented along with white linens and soft music. Carol, who is in charge of the breakfast area, is exceptional in her position as well as very personable and eager to accommodate any requests for special diets. The front desk staff-Antonio and Mary Ann- were outstanding and welcomed you from the minute you walked in the front door until you left. They patiently ansered any questions about sights, dining, transporation, etc. and were extremely knowledgeable. We had a slight problem with our first room and Antonio immediately moved us to other quarters because he wanted us to have a restful night. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable. While the hall carpets need some tweaking, it doesn't detract from the overall charm. Don't expect the ambience of the Ritz Carlton but do expect the charm of an old inn during colonial times with modern conveniences. You won't be disappointed.
