Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Investigators



  • Room decor is a little dated
  • $40 valet parking
  • $50 pet fee

Bottom Line

This elegant, 98-room luxury property right on Rittenhouse Square Park has the largest rooms in the city -- they start at 450 square feet -- and draws both well-heeled families and business travelers. The first-class service, impressive original artwork (including drawings by Mary Cassatt, whose father's house once stood on the site), and kid-friendly amenities are all pluses, but the room decor -- though stately -- is a little dated.
