Where is an excellent place to board my cats for a week and a half in Philadelphia.

I'm going to Germany and Spain for a week and a half at the beginning of March. I need to board my cats. (I am not comfortable with a pet-sitter coming into my apartment; the nature of the trip is such that my most trusted close friends in the city are also going, and besides, I don't want to put the responsibility on another person in case something goes wrong. My cats are mischievous and break things.)
Yelp is yelp, and is somewhat helpful, but I'm looking for more in-depth discussions of experiences, and I trust metafilter people more than I trust yelp people. What's the best place to board my cats? The idea of sticking them in a tiny cage in the back of some vet's office, surrounded by barking dogs and other cats that sneeze on them is upsetting.
1) Must be within a reasonable taxi ride from the Penn area. A reasonable taxi ride would be less than 15 minutes long. I'm not looking for something out in the suburbs.
2) My cats must be able to room together.
3) I am NOT looking for a cat-sitter, or a person who will take care of my cats in his or her house with a bunch of other cats.
That's it. Tell me the best cat-boarding experience you've had in Philadelphia.
