    A fantastic gem in the historic quarter of Philly. Located near the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, and the Museum of the American Revolution. An excellent breakfast and beautifully decorated for Christmas with a very helpful and courteous staff. Terrific value.

    Parking is provided about a block and a half away under covered city parking. Believe the cost was around $20.00 a day. There is a loading and unloading zone right in front of hotel. Very easy to unload and then park the car. More

    It is only two blocks to Penn's Landing. The rooms with windows face toward South Philly. I don't know of views toward the river, but I would call the hotel to be sure.
