We expected better

Would recommend Sun, Dec 20, 2015
This hotel seemed more a stage set than a comfortable place to stay. A few observations: no drawers (though there are shelves and cubbies in the bedroom) no place to stash toiletries in the bathroom shower stall, though separate, was too small (and the shower head too high) to properly bathe only one hook in the bathroom, and oddly placed over the john the doors to the bathroom were French double doors -- horrible for privacy and a potential hazard at night. The positive: concierge staff was excellent. The location cannot be beat.

We were disappointed in the fact that on Sunday am we could not get a complimentary cup of coffee. They shut the coffee bar down at 9:00am.

From check-in until check-out, we were given VIP treatment. This includes front desk, restaurant staff, and hotel concierge team. In all our travels, we have never received more hospitable treatment.

The hotel was clean and well-refined. They allowed us to check in prior to the posted check-in date and held our luggage for us when we requested. Very pleased.

Wanted a nice relaxing weekend getaway with my girlfriend and this hotel delivered perfect. Staff was great (even though we weren't able to check-in early) and the location was perfect for walking around and going out at night.

Love staying at this hotel. Comfortable and quiet rooms located in the heart of the Rittenhouse Square area. Great staff and amenities. Super comfortable bed like sleeping in a cotton ball!

Short walk to many wonderful restaurants: Le Cheri, Parc, Vernick, a.kitchen, Il Pittore. Also close to shopping! Rittenhouse square is perfect for people watching :)
