Everyone was incredibly helpful at this hotel. The hotel is right in the historic district of Philadelphia. The metro is about a block away. I would highly recommend this hotel. Breakfast was good. Hot eggs/bacon as well as make your own waffle, yogurt, oatmeal, etc. They let us check in early.

First, this hotel is right in the middle of the action. There is little of the Old City you cannot reach via a short walk from this hotel. We were within blocks of the National Constitution Center, Independence Hall, The Liberty Bell, the 1st & 2nd Banks, the Benjamin Franklin Museum & Post Office, Christ Church, etc. There are also...

I like the old style. Very quiet and big comfortable room. Very good service with 24 hours tea and coffee. Just minutes walk to all museums and attractions. Reasonable price, not cheap but very good service for this price.

This is a lovely historic hotel located in downtown Philadelphia. It is close to all of the major tourist historical sites. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are spotless and comfortable, if a little small, but is a historic building and the rooms reflect this.

We were pleasantly surprised to find this hotel was directly across the street from the new Museum of the American Revolution. The rooms although small were well appointed and comfortable. The parking around the corner was reasonable and includes in and out privileges. Staff was friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay again.

The staff is amazing. They are genuinely concerned, helpful, and friendly. The rooms are cool, the breakfast is filling with lots of choices, and the only down side is something that can't be controlled: parking.

Very centrally located hotel close to all the historical sights. Felt like we were back in time but with all the modern amenities. We walked everywhere and never had to use the car. Making dinner reservations in advance per the suggestion of the women who made our hotel reservation was a good tip. Thanks for all the warm service.

Comfortable and distinctive hotel in the historical part of the city. It does not feel like a standard hotel, as the building and the bedrooms have their own character.
