NICHE was born from the desire to create a beautiful space with flexible stays and housing in University City. If you’re in town for a visit, for a few months, or even a year, we have a room suited for you.
NICHE is a distinctive, historic property - no two rooms are the same. We offer truly custom accommodations. NICHE offers two types of units: The NICHE Rooms and The Custom Stay Studios.
The NICHE Rooms are ideal for shorter stays, with access to our beautiful lounge, for working or relaxing, and the private garden - they, of course include access to all property amenities.
We are professional hosts with customized service at our core, which means we're here as much or as little as you prefer. If you don't need us, you won't see us, but never hesitate to ask for anything you do need.
Philadelphia is known for its history, art, prestigious universities and institutions. University City/West Philly is a true melting pot of food, culture, music and art.
