Family trip

The hotel was clean. And I loved all the decor. The staff was amazing and they had wine in the lobby in the evening for an hr. Great hotel to visit with family/friends. Adults preferably. It is right down the street from the liberty bell.

Perfect for Our Stay

This is a wonderful hotel to stay in during your visit to Philadelphia. The location could not be more perfect for all of the many things to do in the Historic Part of the city. Access to everything is just a few short blocks away--including transportation to other areas of the city. Clean clean rooms accommodating and friendly staff lovely coffee hour in the morning and wine hour at night and a great location. Will absolutely stay here again!

a night out with friends

Overall, great location and awesome decor. Could see the liberty bell from our room. Unfortunately, the room was filthy, dust on every surface and hair clips left by previous guest still in the room on the chair! If we didn't have plans already we would have requested a new room or refund. Disappointing!

Night out on the town

Local to Philadelphia, but stayed here for a night out on the town. It was great! Perfect location, the hotel itself was beautiful and the service was top notch. Definitely recommended.

stylish but overpriced

this is a very stylish hotel -- super decor -- but overpriced for what it is! location is nice but not amazing, room service is subpar and in-room amenities were used before we arrived and not refreshed. parking is too expensive for the area, too. the best part of the hotel is that they allow pets in the room for no additional charge, but the in-room amenities for pets advertised were not included in our room. we also had to move rooms upon checkin due to a heavy smoke smell in our initial room (despite being a smoke-free hotel)... so, all in all, we likely wouldn't stay here again. :(

Close to perfect

Very pricey by my standards, but not in comparison to other hotels of comparable downtown location in a major city. Perfect location for any historically-oriented visitor! An exhaust fan in the bathroom and a second chair in the room would have been appreciated. Seven pillows per bed was overkill -- more of a logistical problem than a luxury touch. Afternoon complimentary wine was a wonderful after-work or after-touristing touch. Every aspect of service was gracious, efficient, friendly and unobtrusive. The in-house "Red Owl Tavern" provides excellent menu offerings. For the budget-minded, there are multiple low-cost dining options within a five-minute walk. I would definitely choose this location again if visiting Philly.

Love Kimptons, this is one of the best

Great location next to Constitution Hall, Liberty bell. Quirky decor, wonderful staff, spacious very clean room, valet parking. Free wine at happy hour. Fair price for location, but no bargin.
