A gem during my business trip
su agosto 10, 2013
I needed room for only one night after a function at U Penn, and this was the perfect choice. I only wish I had more leisure time to enjoy the beautiful home. Janet was amazing, a perfect hostess in every way. If you are coming to Philly - or local as I am - this is the right choice. I'll be back!

Spruce Hill Manor is wonderful! Janet was so friendly and really knows the area well & has great recommendations for anything you need. The B&B is very clean, full of charm and character and in a great location; within walking distance to numerous restaurants, shopping, and cultural attractions. It's also right outside the downtown area of Philly, a short drive or even walk to a lot of great sights. (public transportation is very close by as well)
Parking was fine, it's free on the street from Friday at 6pm and there is a driveway. We never had trouble finding a spot.
We stayed in the Billie Holiday Room. It was spacious and the bed was very comfortable! We had a kitchenette, private bathroom, TV with cable.The bathroom was spacious and clean and had all the essentials.
Breakfast was nice. It is a help yourself spread of excellent freshly baked quiche, breads, oatmeal, cereal, and fruit. The dining room is beautiful! Worth standing there for a minute or ten to take it all in. There is also water, coffee, a large variety of tea, fresh baked goods and snacks available all day.
We stayed during daylight savings time. Janet was very accommodating and let all the guests check out later to make up for the lost hour. We wanted to check out the Mutter Museum on Sunday, our check-out day and didn't want to leave our luggage in the car. She let us keep it in our room, as well as use the room when we got back before we headed out on the road. We really appreciated her kindness so much. She even gave us a parting gift as we left! It's the little things that really mean a lot!
If you're looking for charm, hospitality, and a comfortable place to stay, we both highly recommend staying here.
A very personal experience - very much appreciated

This was our first experience at Spruce Hill Manor. As this was a visit to two of the local hospitals for surgery- we could not have been more apprectiative of the care and consideration that was given to us. This was like being cared for 24/7 with such a good heart and spirit. Our sons also were accommodated with little or no adance notice. Would definitely recommend to all - much more than you will ever expect or receive elsewhere

This was an amazing place to spend our anniversary. Janet was so kind. She even drove us one day to the subway, since we didnt know where it was yet. On our anniversary, she had a tray with chocolates and wine (and an ornament) left on our bed for us. The room was so big and comfortable, and always cleaned. She even did our laundry one day. A kind woman. We would highly, highly recommend this home to any visitor in Philly. She is a gem!

Beyond any expections. we could not have been happier and were saddened when the last day arrived. janet gave 200% and we felt loved and cared for beyond any place we have staye.
Do not ever ever ever think another facility could beat this home away from home for the last two weeks.
thank you so much for making two seniors feel like kids again. hope to see you again in the near future.
Historic charm with a personal touch

Spruce Hill Manor deserves all its rave reviews! This lovely old house, with its golden woodwork and lush yard, is ideally location for travelers. All the rooms are spacious and impeccably decorated with an eye to period detail. Best of all, innkeeper Janet Reitano takes great joy in her work: She's warm, accommodating, and full of fascinating information about her house and the area. Note: If you're traveling without a car, the Lady Liberty Shuttle from the airport is only $10 and takes you door to door. Thank you, Janet! My daughter and I can't wait to return.

The Innkeeper was wonderful, breakfast was fantastic (great quiche!) with wonderful breads and fresh fruits. It was a pleasure to stay in a place with so much character as opposed to a hotel room. Overall wonderful experience! Thank you.
Thanks for a wonder time!

Janet the Inn Keeper was AMAZING! She took care of taxi/travel details, offered sightseeing tips with maps and brochures. She even drove us herself to one of our dinner meetings! And most importantly she was sensitive to our families needs and managed room cleaning and assistance on our schedule. Would HIGHLY recommend the Spruce Hill Manor - Kathy, Lynn and Celeste
A gem in Philadelphia!

Janet, the Innkeeper is a delight! She made us feel at home from the moment we walked in the door! She had several little extras including Halloween candy and other seasonal treats. The B&B is lovely and we we more that pleased with our stay. I highly recommend!!
A joyful step back in time

Beautifully decked out with antique furniture, mirrors, upholstery etc, it was a joy to stay here. In a great location for a taste of suburbia whilst being within walking distance of the centre and great places to eat. I wish we'd been able to stay longer and enjoy the porch and garden. We'll be back!
