It was a cold January day as I made my way down the wind-whipped streets of Philadelphia, heading toward the Hotel Palomar near Rittenhouse Square. From about half a block away, I saw the awning with Ben Franklin's friendly face and knew I was close. When I walked in, the fireplace to my right was a happy sight, and I sat for a moment, enjoying both the fire and the surroundings. This place makes you want to just sit in the lobby and lose yourself in the glow of the fire. The staff was fun and great to deal with as I checked in, and they were able to find a high floor for me (even though I was initially given a lower room). The room was generally quiet (trucks nearby during the night broke the quiet...not the hotel's fault) and a pleasure to spend time in. I recommend this for its location, its staff, and its ambiance.
