I love boutique hotels. The quaint, quirky difference are so worth giving up the big hotel chains' travel point. This is one of the best, especially in Philadelphia. It is a small 24 room hotel with each room individually decorated with chic comfortable and tasteful furnishings. I am staying in a king room with amble space to relax and even do a little yoga. The bed is uber comfortable and I didn't want to get up this morning but stay tucked in all warm and cozy. The bathroom is roomy with a large enough shower. Breakfast is delivered to your door in the morning with a wide selection of your choices. Coffee is k-cup style with more in the lobby. Wine and cheese at 6pm is complimentary and parking is free--a reason alone to stay here. And the price is right to boot. I stayed in the Double Tree earlier this week on the 15th floor and could hear much more street noise there than here on the 5th floor. The front desk person, Richard, is charming and friendly. Then there is the amazing location off the corner of 12th and Locust right near all things center city. Hubby is on his way to spend the rest of the weekend with me and I know his 6'7" height will be well accommodated here.This may be my go to hotel in Philly from now on...if they keep the price right.
