Steps from chic Rittenhouse Square, the pristine park ringed by million-dollar apartments and historic mansions, this find does a marvelous impression of a small, European-style luxury hotel. The inn is at the heart of Center City, a 10-minute walk to the convention center, the Franklin Institute, and City Hall, but feels secluded on its tiny, leafy street a block from Walnut Street's shopping corridor. Set in a large mansion built around 1911, the lobby exudes haute-British style, and wine is served at 5pm. Upstairs, burrow under Frette linens and revel in cream-colored Berber carpets, antiques, and reproductions of Louis XIV and Chippendale furniture in 1 of 10 surprisingly large guest rooms and suites. All guest rooms have new marble bathrooms, and pastries and fruit are served in the morning from the city's best bakery, Metropolitan, to round out the sophisticated experience.
