    Modern bathroom facilities. Very clean. Nice continental breakfast. Staff tried to accomodate for no place to sit (other than on bed) by bringing up a small chair, but not very comfortable. Great location.

    We booked a king room for 3 days and requested a shower and not a tub as we are not able to step up over a tub. At check-in, we were told that they had no more rooms with showers and we would have to stay in a room with a tub. They then found us a queen room with a shower. The room very small. No place to sit other than on bed. No compensation was made for the smaller room and we were charged the rate for the king room.

    This hotel has all the charm of a bed and breakfast combined with the high end amenities one would expect of a hotel. The room was huge and the bed was so comfortable. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The decor and atmosphere are a wonderful blend of traditional and modern. Also, the free parking and proximity to restaurants, local shopping and the train into downtown Philly were a big plus. The i-pod doc was a nice touch.

    If anything, I would have liked to see more savory/healthy (non-sweet) offerings for breakfast. For instance, some plain, unsweetened yogurt, and other protein such as cheese or cold cuts, in addition to the hard- boiled eggs, which were nice. Also, some fresh fruit (don't remember seeing anything besides the fruit salad, which may have been canned, or had some canned elements).

    This hotel is situated in a very pleasant residential area to the north of Philadelphia, with many good shops and restaurants within walking distance. It is also very convenient for taking the train into the city centre, taking less than 30 minutes. Bathroom had been recently refurbished and was excellent.

    Bedroom very small by American standards and the breakfast might have included fresh fruit. There can be late-night noise from the adjacent Sidewalk Cafe.

    We travelled to the area for a funeral. Your hotel was convenient to every place we needed to be. We appreciate the responsiveness of Lorraine (asst mngr) and the flexiblity Troy (mngr) to an issue we had regarding the room rate. We would definitely stay at your hotel when we next return to the area.

    The staff is very helpful. The hotel has been recently renovated and has been beautifully done. It has all the amenities that you could want including free WI-FI access and continental breakfast. The rates are reasonable. If you are going to visit downtown Philadelphia it would be much more pleasant and less expensive to stay at the Chestnut Hill Hotel and take the train (20 min ride) into the City.

    The location and the restaurant, which had no affiliation with the hotel.

    Towels were dirty. Carpet was dirty. Bathroom was dirty. Additionally, my sister had to be switched out of three different rooms because the sheets were not clean or the air conditioning was not working.

    The staff was excellent, the room was very comfortable, and the train station was just three blocks away. It was nice to have so many good restaurants and shops in a pedestrian-friendly environment.

    I had asked for a room with two beds, but they had changed the reservation before I arrived to a room with one bed. The front desk clerk moved me to another room, and offered me a couple of options, and I was very happy with how it was resolved.

    The staff was friendly and polite and they went out of thier way to be helpful.

    The a/c was barely adequate on a hot, muggy day. The rooms, towels etc. show signs of wear. Example - a broken towel rack.

    Staff was nice. The Chestnut Hill Hotel is tucked away in a very cute, walkable section of Germantown with many fun little shops to visit. For the most part, it was quiet. You can hear the floor squeaking when guests on above floor walk around. Nothing major though.

    It seems that they are still working (renovating) on certain aspects of the place. Once the bathroom, for example, matches the rest of the room, it will be quite nice.

    Once in Germantown, it is a nice, laid back area. People are out walking the street and it seems a friendly place. The hotel is adjacent a small farmers market and the nearby business seemed fun to walk around. Everything closed early in the evening though.

    Exterior compared to online photos was completely misrepresented. It looked more like an old western set than the chic boutique hotel the ad photos made it out to be. The 500 block where I stayed was quite old. No fridges, old carpet. Bed and linens were decent as was plasma tv - No ice machine or way to get a drink w/o driving a mile down the road at night though.

    The decor and comfort of the room was superior with a great bed and flat screen. I liked the Euro-design of the bathroom. The staff was friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. The complimentary continental breakfast was a nice perk.

    We stayed in the converted stone barn. The stacked stone walls in the bedroom were beautiful. The garden spaces, outdoor dining tables, shops & farmers' market on the grounds were lovely. Owner and staff were extremely helpful and courteous. Buffet breakfast had excellent pastries. I loved having the full in-room fridge for our use.

    I was in Philadelphia for a convention. City Center hotels were full so we went to this little gem. The train is close and the ride to the city is $4.50 or $5.00. I did not attend any evening events at convention because I was not in the city. No coffee maker in the room. Hopefully they have one in the room in the winter. The restaurant is in a different building. Bathroom could stand an upgrade.

    The staff, particularly the management team, were wonderful. Great rooms, perfect location and the food was good (dining alfesco on the porch was very pleasant).
