The property is always well maintained and has the quirkiest design details that highlight in the best way possible, Philadelphia's place as a site for the founding of this nation.

Room itself

Pros: Friendly staff
Cons: Maybe better insulation at the window facing the alley for room 307?
Location: Good location, walk to restaurants, museums, historic sights.
Hotel in central location with pleasant/efficient staff. Decor is typical Kimpton. Room (307) smelled (lightly) of exhaust, was facing an alley in which deliveries were being made at early hours, and the noise of the trucks was disturbing. Was expecting better.

Thank you for the review! We're happy you enjoyed the friendly staff, but it looks like your room location was certainly less than ideal. We'd love to get you on a higher floor next time you're with us!

Pros: Location and staff
Cons: The valet parking takes WAY too long when checking out.
Great time staying here. It's close to lots of shops, restaurants, etc. Staff was great.
