The Clinton St B&B is a charming brownstone in a great neighborhood with a wonderful hostess.
Parking: You may be lucky enough to find street parking but more convenient, at $17/day, is a parking garage at the end of the block. Unfortunately the inn does not offer discounts on parking.
Stairs: Most rooms have stairs as well as stairs to access the inn from the street. Our room was at the very top- up five flights. We didn't mind but this may be a problem for those with limited mobility. The uppermost staircase is pretty narrow.
Suites: Each room is it's own suite complete with a small kitchen. Our room had a fridge, stove, coffee maker, tea kettle and microwave with a full set of silverware, dishes and glasses, mugs, pots, and pans.
Breakfast: Breakfast is left in the fridge every day- eggs, milk, juice, butter, fruit and a full platter of breads, muffins and pastries plus two containers of cereal. We were happy with the breakfast but did purchase some of our own foods to supplement the breakfast.
Location: Close to almost everything, and close to public transit for things you do not want to walk to. It is about a mile to Rittenhouse Square, about a mile from Reading Terminal Market (where you can pick up great fresh things to cook in your suite) and just a few blocks from South Street.
There are many coffee shops, boutiques, small grocery stores, wine bars and cafes within an easy walk of the inn. It is also about a mile from Ritz 5, an independent movie theater, and there are also a few live theaters nearby to see a show.
The neighborhood is filled with what appear to be urban professionals. We saw a lot of people walking small dogs but we did not see many homeless, panhandlers or others that you might expect in an urban setting. We felt the neighborhood was very safe and went out late each night comfortably.
The inn appears to be older, yet charming and full of character. While not at all rundown, it is also not sleek and modern. We found it to be clean and the bed was comfortable. The towels were fluffy and the bed linens were nice as well.
I would recommend this inn to a friend or family member and due to it's location, kitchen and comfortable surroundings, we will stay here if we visit Philly again.
