My partner and I were displaced due to a fire and we had to find a place to stay very quickly that would accommodate our cat. They advertise that pets are welcome but I don't think that does it justice. The staff was so pleasant, understanding and empathetic during our whole stay.

My partner and I were displaced due to a fire and we had to find a place to stay very quickly that would accommodate our cat. They advertise that pets are welcome but I don't think that does it justice. The staff was so pleasant, understanding and empathetic during our whole stay. They brought us cat litter, food and water bowls, and an additional littler box when we asked. Our cat was just as much a guest as we were! The staff was flexible with our uncertain situation and patiently accommodated us whenever they could. The room was clean and comfortable, bathroom was well appointed and the robes were snuggly. We would happily stay here again, and sometimes we consider just stopping in to say hi. Read less

My wife and I spent 3 nights here in early June. It is a boutique - style hotel well- situated for coffee bars, restaurants and shopping. We stayed in a City View Spa King room which was a spacious room with vanity area and toilet with separate wet room/spa bath. The bath itself sat on a raised marble step and was very deep, it would not be suitable for those less fit guests or those with mobility problems. Each night there is a complimentary wine hour with hot popcorn, served in the lobby area. It is busy, with limited seating and can get a little noisy, but a great way to relax after a day’s sightseeing. Staff are friendly and helpful. We would certainly stay here again if ever back in Philly. Read less

We had a nice long weekend stay over the July 4th holiday. Check-in was easy and all of the staff were friendly and professional. A nice touch was free wine in the lobby library at happy hour.

We had a nice long weekend stay over the July 4th holiday. Check-in was easy and all of the staff were friendly and professional. A nice touch was free wine in the lobby library at happy hour. Our room was small, but nicely furnished and very comfortable. The bed and pillows were excellent! The bathroom nice, but we did not like the step in tub shower. They offered valet parking for $50/night which was a bit pricey in my view. The hotel is nicely located in the Rittenhouse Square district, within walking distance to lots of great shops, restaurants, and activities. Overall, this was a nice, clean hotel with friendly and professional staff. BEWARE, THIS HOTEL IS PET FRIENDLY & THERE WERE LOTS OF PETS ON PREMISES WITH THEIR OWNERS. Read less

The three of us stayed in a room with 2 queen beds. We appreciated the refrigerator, cozy bathrobes, spacious room, complimentary wine during the weekday, and the personable service. There’s complimentary coffee in the lobby until 10:00. This location was perfect. The Corner Bakery was a few blocks away and shopping abounded for blocks. Try… Read more
