Beautiful accommodation.

We stayed for one night. It was excellent. The checkin was efficient, staff were particularly helpful. There is free WIFI and a complimentary luxury car to bring you to locations within a reasonable distance. We were brought to Independence Hall/Liberty Bell and the following day to the Amrtak station at 30th St. Breakfast is not included but is available in the restaurant. Good variety to suit all tastes. We felt that we were very valued customers and we were only staying one night. The ethos and general atmosphere of staff is all about customer service, offen overlooked in many hotels. We would recommend.

Luxury at affordable price

We were booked for one night and were treated really well by all staff. The complimentary car is a great bonus for trips within a reasonable distance. The super comfortable bed was perfect for a good night's rest. I would return and definitely would recommend this beautiful boutique hotel to friends.

very nice

everything was great, no regrets, I even printed a boarding pass for free. I appreciated having complementary wi-fi and WATER. Maybe have the breakfast complementary, too, but it is not a big deal for single travelers like me.

Fancy Name but not fancy

Hotel has a fancy name and is in a fantastic location but after that its very ordinary Room was small for US standard. More a London sized room and view was of a big brick wall Bed was comfortable but rest of amenieties were average. I got the room on a reasonable deal but if I'd paid normal rate it would have been disappointing Oh and having prepaid, I got a bill through the door in the morning as another booking for less than I'd paid. Of course when I questioned they said throw bill away - Pre booking was correct price

Great room; great staff; but very noisy Sat. night

Our family stayed in two very nice rooms on the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend (2013). Both of our rooms were clean and well appointed. The only detraction was that the street noise coming from bar/club hopping people was intense until almost 2:30 in the morning (we're not early to bed types or light sleepers, so believe me this was fairly extreme). There was really nothing the very pleasant staff could do about this since it was purely a locational issues that likely affects all hotels in the Rittenhouse Square area. So, while I'd happily return, I would think twice before staying on another Saturday (and probably Friday) night, unless, of course, I was one of the revelers.

Excellent location; charming room

Convenient for everything. Felt at home. Maybe a vending machine for jetlagged nighttime hunger?
