Great location, 5 min cab from Train Station(which is pretty amazing place).
It is a very High narrow hotel so I can imagine when it is full, reception could be tricky as its pretty small.
Décor as always is impeccable with standard Free wine in the afternoons. And free WI FI throughout.
We upgraded using the last minute estandby upgrade scheme (You book the room you want and then if better rooms become available they email you a couple of days before offering you an potential upgrade at a much cheaper rate than at the original booking) We also did this at the INK48 hotel in New York. You are not guaranteed the room but if its available the day before you get a better room at a cheaper cost. We were in a Spa King Room and it was one of the nicest rooms we have had (until we stayed in a the Kimpton INK48 in New York)
Massive room with amazing bathroom (see photo) with views over Philadelphia. There was lots of light through big windows and more than adequate blinds to give you privacy.
Staff were friendly and efficient as they normally are at Kimpton Hotels. I must mention Clint on Reception who was about as helpful as you can get. He booked a SEGWAY tour which was great fun and interesting(remember sun block though). If the management read this then please pass on our thanks to him. He was perfect. Very professional yet friendly which is always a fine balance. He even set up an account to book the tour online for us.
