Great experience!

Loved my first stay here - Sherri and her staff were polite and was beautiful, clean, and comfortable. Highly recommended - much more enjoyable than dealing with over-priced Center City hotels.

A Beautiful Stay

A warm welcome, clean and cozy accommodations, and a tasty breakfast in the morning!! What else could one ask for? Walking distance to delicious restaurants, good shopping, and public transportation. Thank you La Reserve, I will certainly be back.

Feels like home

I love La Reserve! Very relaxing place, Sheryl is such a beautiful person. Great place for peace, quiet writing time. Breakfast is delicious; love her blueberry pancakes. Gotta get back there very soon.The large windows gave me plenty of great thoughts in the mornings, Applebees was not far from Reserve also there is a market nearby for groceries if you get the suite with kitchen.I'm very picky about where i sleep, when i go there i wanna stay another day.

Friensly, hospitable place to stay

This was our 1st time to stay in a B&B. So we had no idea what to expect. This will not be our last time! We met very interesting people and this B&B was outstanding in all aspects.

Perfect location, lovely B&B, nice people, great price - what's not to love?!

We had a great experience at the La Reserve. We were in town for 3 days looking for an apartment (as we're moving to Philadelphia this summer) and this B&B was in the perfect location for traipsing around Center City for showing after showing. It was so nice to be able to come back during the day and just decompress a bit before having to go out again for another showing. We stayed in the Chatham Suite - which was nice and homey - it had a separate kitchen and living room, which came in really handy. It was on the top floor of the rowhouse and it was very quiet and restful. The rest of the B&B was equally lovely - the lounge/salon is wonderful - even after we checked out, we were able to relax there for a few hours before we had to leave for our train. All the staff members we met were polite and helpful. The continental breakfast in the morning was yummy - homemade muffins and other baked goods along with cereal, bagels, juice, yogurt, hardboiled eggs, etc. The last time I stayed here (this was my second stay), I had their weekend cooked breakfast - which was also lovely as well - they offered you a small menu to choose from and make your meal to order. I'll definitely be recommending this place to family and friends who come to visit after I move to Philadelphia. Perfect location, lovely B&B, nice people, and a great price - what's not to love?!

A Must Stay in Philadelphia

The accommodations, service provided & breakfast were outstanding. The rooms were exquisite and very spacious. Sherri, the innkeeper, and her staff went out of their way to make sure our family and friends' stay was carefree. Perfect location to Philly's wonderful history, shopping, and restaurants.

Absolutely Wonderful!

Absolutely wonderful! My husband and I stayed at the La Reserve Bed and Breakfast in August for my birthday weekend and we could not have been happier. First and foremost I would like to recognize the exceptional customer service from the General Manager Sherri. It is not too often that a manager will go above and beyond her role to ensure a couple has a fabulous weekend visiting the city! Sherri was so welcoming into the B and B and was very generous, friendly, and a breeze to work with. I think hands down her service made our stay wonderful. On top of the phenomenal service from Sherri, the location is perfect and the bed and breakfast is so charming and cute! Everything is within walking distance and the parking garage is very close. We were able to enjoy a wonderful weekend in the city exploring the local area and enjoying great food. The home made breakfast was wonderful and the Chef was very friendly. Thank you Sherri for making my birthday weekend a success we will sure to come back and recommend you anyone who is looking to stay in the city!

La Reserve -- a home away from home

La Reserve is a wonderfully cozy B&B located in the heart of Philadelphia. It was beyond scrupulously clean with a darling deck. Breakfasts were delicious & plentiful, preparing us for a full day of sightseeing in historic Philly.

Fantastic gem in the heart of Philadelphia

I was lucky enough to experience two separate rooms during my four night stay. I can't say enough praise especially for the suite! Sherri made my stay perfect and I will only stay here on my next trip.
