“I'm not sure what we loved more - the beautiful and comfortable rooms, the genuine warmth and hospitality from the staff, or the perfect location in Center City! For us, it was probably the staff that made our stay so wonderful. Can't say enough good things.”

“The bed was comfortable and the room quite large. The Franklin speakeasy bar is attached and has amazing drinks. Nespresso coffee, water, and popcorn are available in the lobby. Guests receive a free glass of wine or beer at the bar or $12 off the tab per guest.”

“Charming boutique hotel in central Philly. We loved everything about our stay including the suite we stayed in (the Armand), a two-story room with a spiral staircase, the location, the complimentary breakfast, and the really kind and helpful staff. We also loved the cocktails at the speakeasy on the main level and the help we got snagging a table without reservation. ”
