The hotel was very convenient to where I needed to be with a minimum of the kind of traffic noise that can always be a problem in city center hotels. The continental breakfast, which I had been told was "thin" was actually rather skeletal: orange juice, coffee, bagels or croissants and your choice of bananas or oranges. Very surprisingly, there were no jams or jellies to go with the croissants. Housekeeping didn't deal with my room the last day I was there. Together, they made for rather disappointing stay...not the sort of thing I've encountered before in boutique hotels.

This is a nice, old Philadelphia building. The rooms are cute (although the walls are a little thin) and I had a nice view. I would definitely recommend.

The shower had mould, the sheets were stained and had a public hair on them. This was our honeymoon night, we couldn't stay in a property like that.

It's a pretty nice old building with unique details and a certain charm. Plus the windows make it easy to look out on the night softened city.

Staff was amazingly friendly. I think we got the last room so it was small but elegant. It was very clean and nice. It did not have a refrigerator and the city and halls were loud, late. We will choose to stay here again.
