About The Dwight D

Kimmel Center

As an interior designer and 3rd generation hotelier, The Dwight D hotel combines my passions for beautiful spaces, furniture, and art and the finest in hospitality.


When the historic 19th century property in the Rittenhouse Square neighborhood which previously housed the Eisenhower Fellowships became available in 2012, I longed to return it to a space for grand and luxurious living.


Inspired by the building's architecture and center city Philadelphia's long tradition of glorious townhomes, I completely renovated the property with the objective of building the perfect location for travelers who seek an alternative to traditional chain hotels. 


The result is a luxurious but personable boutique hotel-a place where guests can accentuate their visit to this most historic of U.S. cities by experiencing downtown living in a quintessential and authentic Philadelphia setting featuring the highest standards of quality and the finest guest services and amenities-all delivered in an elegant yet casual atmosphere.


My goal is that our guests have a peerless and unique experience, gain a sense of place while discovering our city's great attractions, restaurants, and shops, and stay like a local!  Welcome to The Dwight D, where local meets luxury.
