Positive Reviews

Charming Character in Historic Hotel

This hotel provides a very charming experience as you are staying in an historic building full of character and charm. Many features of teh original building remain and it is fun to discover the history of the hotel. There are cozy fireplaces and a library to enjoy, as well as fresh cookies and tea in the evening.

Historic Philly Location

This hotel is located near the historic district and within walking distance of everything you could want to see and do in Philadelphia. There are plenty of restaurants nearby and you can easily get around without needing a car.

Comfy, Cozy Rooms

Guests say that rooms are beautifully appointed, very clean, and comfortable. Beds are extremely cozy with soft linens.

Negative Reviews

Breakfast Disappoints

Guests say breakfast is a little disappointing for this style of lodging. It is continental offerings only and nothing is available as a hot item. The choices are limited and don't live up to the rest of the hotel.

Old Building Quirks

As this is an older building, there are no elevators. It is three stories, so if you have heavy luggage, be sure to ask the front desk person to assist you. They can also assist upon departure but need to know you need help.

Water Issues

Keeping in line with the age of the building, the water in the shower takes a long time to warm up. It's better to turn the water on and let it run before you prepare to hop in. If you wait a few minutes, it will eventually heat up.
