Construction on this property was completed in 1866 by Robert Mills, architect of the Washington Monument; before it was a hotel, it originally opened as the city’s first General Post Office. Since then, it has been deemed a National Historic Landmark, and was renovated by the Kimpton group in 2002. The marble four-story structure, located in Penn Square, contains 183 guestrooms, of which 14 are suites. This boutique property is pet-friendly, with complimentary Evian for dogs, water bowls, and maps of optimal local dog walks; or for those who left their pet at home, “guppy service” is offered, a goldfish brought to the room upon request.

Room to Book:

With 20-foot vaulted ceilings and 600 square feet of space, the Robert Mills corner suites on the third floor are twice the size of other suites.

Insider Tip:

Stop by the lobby between 5 and 6 p.m. for a daily complimentary wine tasting with a monthly rotating selection of varietals focusing on one white and one red. Beer is also available.
