"This boutique hotel has modern decor that adds a touch of European charm. It has an excellent Center City location, just a couple of blocks from the theater district."
Gayot Gayot
"Although it opened in 1998, this hotel was designed to reflect 1930s modern decor—you may feel as if you've traveled back in time to a cruise ship in the early 20th century."
