The Dwight D, a City House Hotel, Philadelphia
The building has been lovingly restored and beautifully appointed. What sends it over the top is the graciousness of Vittoria Schutz, the proprietor. Since we discovered the Dwight D. we look for reasons to visit Philadelphia!

Luxury, Style, and Hospitality
The Dwight D. is wonderful! Much better than a standard-issue hotel room, especially if you want to see Philly from the perspective of a local. My room was very stylishly decorated, the bathroom was spacious, and the glass-enclosed shower was really nice. The neighborhood has great shopping and restaurants, and the hotel has easy access to a drug store and little markets. Ken, a hotel staff member, was extremely attentive every time I saw him. I wish I could actually live for a much longer time in the room I stayed in!
