Nice decorated spaceaous room. Very charming old (monumental) house in a nice area of the city of Philadelphia.Wooden steps are peeping when walking. There is no elevator.
Restaurant is in contrast with hotel very modern and the dinner we had there was very very special.
Park to sit and walk is around the corner as well as the historical sights to see. Good restaurants are also in the nearby area.
We found are bed sheets dirty ( red stains ) when we first opened it. Quite a shock for such a quality hotel. But manager and staff did everything to make it allright. We were offered a glass of wine in the bar.
Front desk staff we did not find friendly and welcoming at all but very uninterested, except for one younger male employeé which was the opposite.
Breakfast served in the salon downstairs was a bit of a problem, not enough of everything. And most inportant the look on the face of the female employee at the front desk when asking for more bread etc. Very very unfriendly. It is really a big mistake to not take care of the breakfast.
Hotel wants to be a 4 star but the whole atmosphere is not good, not welcoming, not friendly and staff has too much attitude which is totally misplaced.
Room was fine, house is beautiful, area is good, staff should be more well mannered, home-made cookies and coffee are a fine treat.
