As another reviewer notes, our room was quite small. Because it was very hot in Philadelphia when we were there, we needed strong air conditioning and the window unit in our 7th floor room couldn't keep up. A refrigerator in the room would have been a fantastic addition. But no such luck.
The hotel IS centrally located, which made walking to various places (and transit stops) fairly easy.
The only ice machines are on the main floor near the kitchen and in the basement. Speaking of the basement, they also have two or three vending machines -- that's it. It looks and feels like someone's basement at home; hasn't really been upgraded to be part of the hotel.
Their breakfast was quite adequate, though nothing special. The area you ate in was very nice (grade of B or B+) and, along with the staff, probably one of the best things about the hotel.
If you'll need parking, it's a couple of blocks away and costs $20 per day. There's only one elevator and it's not super-fast.
I was attracted by the location and the "boutique" aspect of the hotel. Not sorry I went, but I am not likely to return -- though I will probably check out other boutique hotels and make my selection based on what I learned from this experience.More
