Fodor's Review

This bed-and-breakfast in the heart of Old City is great for travelers who want an authentic taste of historic Philadelphia. Built in 1769 by a prominent local physician (an enormous family tree detailing his descendents hangs from a wall in a common living room), the four-story Georgian house has undergone a faithful, meticulous restoration. Everything from the home's molding and wall sconces to the woodwork and flooring has been restored (Just think: Ben Franklin supposedly

hung out there!). Rooms have reproduction period furnishings (there are also a few antiques), including four-poster beds, and two have marble fireplaces. In keeping with the Colonial theme, some rooms are a tad cold in winter. Continental breakfast is served weekdays; a full breakfast is served on weekends. Complimentary coffee, tea, and ice water are always on hand, and complimentary wine and cheese is served nightly. The hotel requires children to be 10 years or older.
