La Reserve has a real old world classy feel. All of the Rittenhouse area has the feel, actually. It's like the creme de la creme of Philadelphia. If you think Philly is all cheesesteaks and sports fan--go spend at night at La Reserve and see how the other half lives. Classy doesn't capture the whole feel though. It's also really warm and cozy and a bit like staying in a rich great aunts house. I had to resist snooping around for secret doorways and attics. You could really relax here, or you could really focus and get a lot of good thinking and working done. It's peaceful and private, and they provide a real substantial desk to sit at, and a classic comfy reading chair. It's hard to put my finger on why just the four stars...but I think its because it felt a little cramped and cluttered at times.

I walked in to the cheerful staff decorating the parlor room for the holidays together. They immediately dropped what they were doing to assist me. The atmosphere was so warm and unique. I was charmed by the Victorian bedroom decor, which managed to feel very comfortable, relaxed, and homey. There was a writing desk, positioned under a tall window, afternoon sunlight streaming in...swoon! You can spend all day walking to any of hundreds of shops, museums, parks, and restaurants, then come back here, stretch out and rest better than you would in your own home. Rittenhouse Square is only a few blocks away--perfect for a morning stroll with coffee in hand, or a lazy afternoon with a magazine. Or you could just sit in La Reserve's own private courtyard and get the same towering trees against brick effect.
