We normally stay in larger hotels, but decided we wanted a change, and this was a great choice. The little hotel is on a quiet street, just off Rittenhouse Square, so the location could not be better. It is meticulously run, the staff are friendly and accommodating, the building is beautifully maintained and has great character, and the included breakfast...

Very friendly and acconmmodating staff. Clean rooms with good beds. Rittenhouse Park lovely and a French bistro called "Le Parc" around the corner. Parking is done at the Latimer Garage a few blocks away (cash only!). The continental breakfast was quite good with freshly squeezed orange juice and pastry. Made a round trip walk that day to Independence Hall and...

Our only regret after a one night visit was that it was so short. The staff, both late afternoon and morning, could not have been more helpful. The room was lovely and quiet and the bathroom large and well equipped. We did not have time for the evening wine reception but others were clearly enjoying it. The continental breakfast, complete...

20 room hotel in a brownstone in Center City. Feels like a London B&B, particularly with the self-serve breakfast in the lower level. Room comfortable and attractive with old world furniture. Obtaining hot water took a long time (minute) from the sink. Staff particularly attentive and helpful. Great location for dining and bars and the old part of the city.

Dear Scott C, Thank you for the review and your kind words about our staff and comparing us to a London B&B. We are sorry to hear about the delay of hot water from the sink. We recently replaced a hot water heater and pressure tank , so hopefully that will not happen again. We would like for you to...

Upgraded to Presidential Suite for our one night in Philadelphia. Lovely, duplex room with spiral staircase, fireplace, two bathrooms, only thing lacking was a bathtub. Parking in nearby garage a challenge, given bad weather. Suggest valet parking for a hotel of this quality. Great staff, friendly and helpful, greeted with wine and cheese in the drawing room, festive way to...

We arrived at the hotel around 4pm on Saturday, New Year's Eve. Since traffic was difficult getting there and parking is off site we opted to valet park the car (additional $8 + overnight parking lot $23). The management was very polite and helpful. They walked us to our room assisting with the luggage. There is a lot of stairs...

This hotel is okay. But it's old, it feels cramped (that stifling kind of small) and is not really on Rittenhouse Square (it's in an alley) and it's steps from the actual, amazing, famous Rittenhouse Hotel - so there's no reason to stay here. The staff is lovely and helpful ... cramming your family and it's luggage in the tiny...

We found this for a quick romantic overnight in the city, on a quiet side street but a short walk from the park. Small boutique style with a continental breakfast in the basement, but the rooms were well appointed and front desk staff very attentive and nice. Would highly recommend.
