Janet tailors the needs of all her guests. I came to Philly for a licensing exam, and she even offered and ironed my clothes for the next morning! The room was very comfortable and I was able to study peacefully as well as get an important good night's sleep. Janet had breakfast ready for my earlier start, and later gave...

Staying in Spruce Hill Manor with Janet is like staying with your cousin She cares very much about the comfort & safety of her guests Nothing is too much trouble for Janet. She drove my husband &I to the restaurants on two occasions, drove us to the museum. There are snacks & fruits in the dining room at all times....

Janet is the best! great service, she helped me with everything I needed! The place is beautiful and really clean, the area is very nice and quiet. The BB is near the universities and fairly close to the art museum, she can drive you there if she has the time to do so, you can walk to the train station...

The room was lovely and comfortable, (while the bed was comfortable, every time my partner moved in the night, I felt it, and vice versa); the location convenient; the neighborhood nice to walk around; and the host friendly. The host, Janet, tried to meet our requests for information about specific places to see in Philly, and for local restaurant choices....

I stayed there for 2 nights. I have chosen this because of close proximity to exam centre. Janet hospitality is truly unforgettable. This is just like stay at home. I took a flight to Newark International airport. From this airport there is Amtrak connection to 30th street, Philadelphia. This B &B is about 7min by taxi from the train station....

We stayed only one evening at Spruce Hill. The home is absolutely marvelous. This is a 1870’s city home with a great porch, wonderful rooms and in a quite area. It was like stepping back in time with the home in tremendous shape with furniture to match. We had the Audubon Queen Suite and it was superb. Breakfast was great...

The rave reviews I read were all correct about this B & B. Janet is a wonderful hostess and was extremely helpful with info about the Philadelphia area. The breakfast had several items to choose from and were served beautifully. You will not be disappointed.

Forget the big chain hotels next time you're in Philadelphia, and head on over to Spruce Hill Manor. My girlfriend, her cousin, and I stayed there for the Made in America Festival (about a mile walk, so not bad) and the entire experience well exceeded our expectations. Janet was friendly and accomodating, and the place itself is superb. Very clean...

My stay at Spruce Hill Manor couldn´t have been better. I initially made my choice based primarily on the great reviews I´ve read on this page and I must say that the experience went far beyond my expectations, however high they were. To begin with, even before I travelled to the States I learnt I´ve been upgraded to a better,...
