My husband and I spent our first anniversary at Spruce Hill Manor, and we were delighted with the care and comfort we received during our stay. Janet was the perfect hostess, offering tips for getting around the city and providing a lovely spread for breakfast. She was extremely personable, yet we felt that we still had plenty of privacy.

Yes, Janet is an exceptional host. We arrived quite late in the afternoon and wanted to go downtown so that we could get a flavor of Philadelphia and have dinner. Janet drove us downtown, which was very nice . But she did more. She actually toured us around in the city and treated us with a tourist drive .Can you... More

The superlatives you read in these reviews are true. the physical location is beautiful, but Janet takes service to new levels of graciousness. This home is filled with beautiful antiques and art which infuse the experience with a sense of life from another time. My room, the Billie Holiday room, was quiet, clean and completely comfortable. Janet brings seemingly endless... More

We chose Spruce Hill Manor due to its location and proximity to University City. However, Janet's warm welcome and the beautiful accommodations make it a must-stay in Philadelphia. We were warmly received and taken care of. The queen room is very spacious and nicely decorated. We highly recommend it as a place to stay in Philadelphia.

I give this place 5 stars for the physical comforts of the home, convenience to the city and the warm and welcoming owner Janet.
