Located right at Rittenhouse Square, the hotel is a very nice boutique property. From here you can walk about a mile and a half to the historic Constitution area or a little over a mile in the other direction to the Barnes Foundation.
There are many great restaurants in the area, as well—check out Alma de Cuba, which we thought was delicious.
Our room was very nicely decorated, spacious, and quiet. There is no refrigerator in the room, but the front desk staff will keep wine or other items for you in the hotel kitchen. The hotel has free wi-fi but we found it to be quite spotty.
The hotel will also direct you to covered parking nearby at a better rate than the parking which is directly adjacent to the hotel.
The evening “wine tasting” sadly consists of only Chardonnay wine, which many people don’t like. It would be nice to have more of a selection including Sauvignon Blanc.
The included continental breakfast is very adequate, with nice pastries, yogurt, fruits, coffee. However, you are offered additional (overpriced) selections from a menu including fresh squeezed juice and freshly prepared egg dishes. Frankly, for the price of the hotel, I feel that the additional breakfast items should be included for no additional cost. Even if the room rate were raised a little bit, it would just add to the overall nice feeling of the hotel if one did not have to pay more for the extra breakfast items, especially at the prices charged.
We will definitely stay here again if we return to Philadelphia.
