The lobby is a mix of a traditional old bank building combined with some modern elements of lighting. Not sure I liked the combination but the lobby with the high ceilings and massive columns was very grand. The rooms were fine, not truly elegant like many of the Ritz hotels, but certainly clean and well maintained. We were there for a wedding and reception and they did a beautiful job on behalf of the bride and groom.
We weren't overly impressed with the bar staff. We were there Friday afternoon and didn't get table service for drinks or food but had to go to the bar ourselves to order.
Location is quite good. Walk one direction, in a lousy area, to the Liberty Bell and other historic buildings. Rittenhouse Square is in another direction and much livelier, attractive scene awaits. Good shopping, nice little restaurants and cafes.
