First this hotel was easy to get to, as it is right off the highway. We stayed on the start of a lengthier than normal vacation and had the luggage to show for it. Our room was changed so we would be more comfortable. Someone helped us put our luggage on a cart, brought it to our room and brushed aside everything but our appreciation. Our room was a nice size with plenty of mirrors in the bathroom so doing hair was a breeze. We were right next to the historical area and a quick walk had us near Independence Hall, Betsy Ross, and the Constitution Museum. The wine bar is renown and they are able to recommend with ease. Breakfast was more than your typical continental.
Stayed just one night before flying back home. Great location in old city Philadelphia. Right next to the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall and the great part of the city. Fun hotel, clean, and friendly staff.
A/C in the hotel could have been much better. In the room my ac was set on 65 but could only bring the temperature down to 69. A lot of refuse was left in the halls after room service and it was not picked up in a timely manor. Everything else was great.
Wonderful experience staying at this hotel. Friendly and helpful staff. Delicious breakfast in relaxing courtyard. Convenient to historic attractions. I would love to return and stay at this hotel again.
A charming little hotel that is not trying to be something it's not. If you're looking for a five-star experience, this is not the place. But it's a great option for a short business trip, for sightseers or for anyone in need of clean, comfortable, basic accommodations, at an incredibly fair price while visiting Historic Philadelphia. Rooms are small (as are the majority of rooms in urban buildings of its era). Bedding is comfortable, not luxurious. Staff is friendly and responsive, not polished. Amenities are few. Free WiFi works well. Free, refrigerated bottled water. Can't beat the location. The only glitch I experienced was a small one--upon entering my room, I discovered that two light bulbs were out. I called the office, and the nonworking bulbs were quickly replaced with new ones. If you end up disappointed with your experience at this hotel, then you did not match the right property with the purpose of your trip (or you're just plain "high maintenance"). If you're planning a special occasion or bringing the kids, don't book this hotel. If you're travelling to Philly for the history or to work, stay at the Society Hill Hotel and take yourself out to a nice dinner with the money you save!
