The Dwight D, Philadelphia
Perfect getaway in the City!
We loved our stay in this charming city house hotel. I had a hard time finding the house, and Victoria worked with me on the phone until I got there! The house is really well decorated and is spotless! We arrived on a Friday night, parked in garage on the adjacent street, and didn't pick up our car until we left on Sunday. We walked everywhere from this central location. The house is located in a great neighborhood with restaurants right next door. Victoria explained the local bus called Phlash and how the city is laid out. She recommended which places to visit. She was a great tour guide! Jeff took our bags to our room, and we were able to leave them in the office on Sunday until we left for our afternoon flight. It was a charming place to stay!

The accommodations in the room and the hotel in general were excellent, and the staff was quite friendly and helpful. The only (very minor) mark against the room was that the temperature control was a bit finicky.

No need for any place else in downtown Philly
Great boutique hotel. Service was impeccable. Location put us in easy reach of great restaurants. Super close to PATCO station.

Lovely Boutique Hotel Made Getaway a Pleasure
Location was superb--quiet, lovely street near all the shops and Rittenhouse Square; hosts warm and informative about the area and local restaurants. We left our car at a local garage around the corner and went everywhere by foot or via Lyft. Bed was excellent, free Wi-fi and HuLu, coffee and Tea Forte at all hours. Two small caveats: no hair dryer; no safety grips in the tub/shower. But overall, no question that we would return to the DwightD on our next visit to Philly. Much nicer location than the big hotels on noisy thoroughfares and great value for the money.
