Inn At The Leauge
1450 Sansom Street
Center City
Philadelphia, PA 19102
Cross Street: Broad Street
$232 double. Rate Includes Breakfast

In 1862, a cadre of Philadelphia gentleman founded a society to support the policies of President Abraham Lincoln. Almost 150 years later, the Union League, a stoic French Renaissance-style brownstone building that cuts quite a profile at the heart of Broad Street, opened select floors for overnight stays by nonmembers. Although the vibe here is undoubtedly old boys' club, and there are some seemingly quirky rules about where guests may roam -- and what they may wear -- this inn nonetheless provides a certainly memorable lodging, what with its leather trimmings, gentlemanly wood paneling, polished marble floors, 28,000-book library, and impressive art collection -- including quite an imposing portrait of President Ronald Reagan.

Guest rooms are traditionally furnished and modest in size. Reservations are by phone only. Breakfast is included, but don't dare show up late, for such behavior wouldn't be prudent for a place as proper as this.
