Located in Chestnut Hill, a village of Philadelphia known for its hometown feel and quaint collection of galleries, shops, restaurants and a traditional farmers’ market, The Chestnut Hill Hotel is a historical landmark. The building was built in 1894 on the spot of a former hotel and was a "Summer Hausen" for colonial Philadelphians. During Prohibition, it became a speakeasy, among other things, and has been restored three times since then, most recently in 2010. Each of the 36 rooms is unique, including the four in the nearby Carriage House, which delights guests with reclaimed wooden doors and seasonal fireplaces. There are also five rooms in the Post Office building, three of which include kitchenettes and are decorated in a fun and campy Andy Warhol style. The Chestnut Hill Hotel gives guests a taste of “Old Philly” while still offering the most modern amenities.
