great location, staff helpful, comfy bed
This lovely hotel is amazing in all ways. Staff very friendly and helpful, valet parking , food excellent , rooms very beautiful and clean, I love boutique hotels and this one gets a 5 stars from me. Another perk is that they have a car/driver you can use at a moments notice ! A must stay if your in the city , close to Rittenhouse with all the shopping and restaurants you will need.
Valet parking is expensive , but I think it's controlled by the parking garage they use.
Great place to stay for RNR Philadelphia. Convenient to start and finish and other sites.
Comfortable boutique style room in old-fashioned hotel size Roman, the driver, who took us to the Barnes and brought us back - FREE Location near square Concierge who guarded our luggage PRICE - would be good value at 50% more
My husband thought it was a little corporate feeling
Prime location near Rittenhouse Square and shopping. WIFI works very well with easy, trouble free logon.
Very overpriced for a room that was too small and not well appointed. Tacky tattered chair in the room and not very many channels on TV. And did I mention that there is no ice machine? Really? Now I know why the Palomar was sold out and the Latham was available.
Clean, comfortable, convenient., It was a pleasure to stay there.
a lot things. parking, dirty, and list goes on
The staff were helpful giving directions and recommendations on local services
The elevator was too small.
The hotel was mostly clean (dusty shelf in bath) and comfortable. Great location. Staff was pleasant. Unfortunately, the only response to my complaint re the room location/noise was to delete the valet parking fee from my bill.
It's beyond mystifying that they placed the staff locker room on the top floor in the same corner as a guest room. In 100s of hotels I've never had this experience! At each change of shift and in between - mostly bedtime and early morning - we were kept awake/awakened by dozens of loud door closings when staff entered/exited the room. Worst of all, the manager KNOWS about the problem & said I should've been told about it at check-in (I wasn't)! It was too late at night to leave and knowing in advance wouldn't have changed anything - it wasn't the "surprise" that awoke us! Despite alerting them early that day to my late check-in, he claimed we likely were given the room because it was the only room left. If I'd been told in advance, I obviously would have canceled and booked elsewhere. Call me cynical, but I think they purposely don't tell you this, then expect to get off the hook by comping the valet parking. Too many nice places in the neighborhood; we won't return.
location, car driver was amazing, door people were amazing
the fact that I was made to feel stupid that my credit card account didn't have enough money to cover my 2nd night stay when I clearly stated I would be paying cash and even after offering to pay in advance for the 2nd night was told to check out...I have never been so offended
Location near train and wedding Staff was fantastic Room was nice
The wifi was not so good and for the bathroom to be so nice the shower head was not powerful at all
Check in took no less than 2 minutes. The room was spotless and the bed was extremely comfortable. The rates and view were unbeatable considering a hotel 1 block away was twice the price. Will stay again.
Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was large and clean. Great location withing close walking distance to Rittenhouse square and great dining.
Price, location, clean rooms, comfortable beds, nice fitness facility, free wifi, staff was attentive and courteous, livery service within 2 mile radius was a great amenity
small spot of peeling paint in shower
The staff was very knowledgeable about the area & quite friendly. The hotel was clean. Great car service & close to those who like to shop! If you are more of a history buff though, I recommend staying further downtown. Regardless we were quite close to everything...
The tv cabinet was broken & there was a rip in our sheets, which, we didn't notice until late & didn't want to bother anyone about. No sugar or cream for the tea or coffee in the room. Rooms, hallways, elevators are VERY cramped. Just slightly too far away from the historic sights...
the location - the room
I don't see really
Staff was pretty cool. Room was kind of nice
They gave us the wrong room. Twice. Bumped into 2 naked men.
Amenities were perfect. Best one, the driver who takes you anywhere in city. Will go back again,
They need new pillows, it was either too squishy or to hard...the bed itself was comfy, though!
Location was central to everything! The room was clean and comfortable; the staff was extremely accommodating and the bar mixed really good drinks (try the banana split martini). Parking was valet and you can leave your bags in the car at the facility after check out until 6 pm to further your adventures. A first come- first serve Audi is available to chauffeur you to dinner if you need it.
The ONLY downside was there are only 2 elevators and they only accommodate 4 people in each. Small.
