I must echo the overall comments of excellence of this Hotel. Everything was fantastic....all recently remodeled, very urbane and elegant with an understated European elegance. Staff very attentive and helpful. Morning breakfast and evening wine reception. Great location in downtown Philadelphia. Much to my pleasant surprise, I was upgraded to a third floor duplex suite with an amazing spiral staircase (Room 313) and two floor windows. So what gives with my VERY GOOD rating? I would have given this hotel an overall EXCELLENT review EXCEPT for these reasons - 1. There is MASSIVE construction of a high rise building directly across the street. The noise begins promptly at 7 am and does not cease until after 5 pm. Be prepared for it and for related congestion on the street of the hotel. 2. The elevator only reaches the second floor, so if you have a lot of luggage or stairs are a problem this is a potential constraint. This happens in B&B hotels of this type, things of this nature are part of their charm.
This is a really wonderful hotel. The construction is certainly not anything the hotel can control and as far as the stairs, remember this is more of a B&B than a hotel so it is a part of the experience.
Try this hotel if these two issues (daytime noise and congestion and some stair challanges) are not a major factor for you. You will NOT be dissapointed.
