The hotel is really nice. Nicely decorated. Comfortable king bed. We checked in Christmas eve. Quick and easy. The only gripe I had was with the food we ordered to the room at 955pm. I called and they informed me the kitchen was about to close and I had to order from the late night menu. The grilled cheese didn't come with the tomato soup and the Caesar salad didn't have the croutons. The front desk did refund $25 for the inconvenience.

I was visiting with friends who stayed at this hotel over the holidays this year. Very well kept and clean hotel. The rooms were very nice and the bathrooms were impressive. The only thing I didn't like was that the valet was hard to find because of how the street setup is but beyond that I would definitely stay here and recommend this hotel to friends and family.

By far the cleanest bathroom I've ever seen in a hotel! Nice rooms, coffee service in the mornings and happy hour in the late afternoon in the lobby. Great event spaces. Modern, slightly cheeky feel. Weak points include no real loading zone, keys constantly becoming deactivated, smelly/loud dogs both in the public spaces and behind reception, and overhearing staff openly complain about guests in the elevators, halls, etc.

Extremely friendly and accommodating staff. Wonderful facility and nice rooms. The fitness center was totally adequate. I personally don't like valet parking but in Philly it is unavoidable and we had no problems at all with the service. Our dog is very skittish/not friendly with strangers and the staff was very understanding and kind. Only downside is that it is quite expensive.

Thank you for staying with us! We love our valet team and are happy they worked out for you in the end. There are a couple of nearby self-park lots that we are not affiliated with if you feel compelled to park on your own next time. Speaking of next time, we are in a very busy period that is resulting in higher than average rates. Check back throughout the year for sales (and maybe slower periods) so we can welcome you back!

The staff, rooms, bar, restaurant...all fantastic. Wonderfully eclectic, great views and of course, the wine hour. Only real ding on this visit (it wasn't our first and it won't be our last) was this sulfur smell that appeared in our room when we tried to bump up the heat. Thoroughly freaked my wife out to the point of wanting to call down for a different room. I lowered the temp and kicked on the fan, and things were fine. But for about an hour, it either smelled like sewage or gas in the room. Again, other than that? Terrific!

Happy belated Anniversary! Thanks for celebrating with us. We're thrilled we could live up to the precedent set by our Kimpton brothers and sisters!

For a 4.5 star hotel, this hotel doesn't offer much in terms of amenities. Our room was small and we didn't even have a coffee maker..something even a 3 star hotel usually offers. The elevator smelled like garbage the entire evening. The snacks were stale and it took them several calls to replace them. The phones weren't even working after we'd complained several times and there was no maid service. I expected a little more from a supposedly first class hotel.

In addition to the hip decor, the staff was very friendly and helpful all around. Always impressive when someone remembers your new the next day.
