As one of the great American cities, Philadelphia has a lot to offer to visitors. As the only World Heritage City in the US, Philadelphia is rich with a history of innovation, academic achievement, and cultural flourishing. In Philadelphia, you’ll be able to go from chowing down on a street side Philly Cheesesteak to stepping inside the Academy of Natural Sciences without missing a beat.
Every kind of hotel is represented in Philadelphia, including luxury hotels, boutique hotels, bed and breakfasts, chain hotels, and hostels. There’s a range of prices for each type of hotel, depending on what you’re looking for.
The hotels in Philadelphia will offer the standard set of amenities for the type of hotel. If you’re willing to pay extra, it won’t be hard to find a hotel with a spa, pool, gym, room service, or parking spot for guests. Likewise, finding a stripped down version of the hotel experience will be quite easy, although rooms tend to sell out quickly from time to time.
Most of Philadelphia’s hotels are concentrated in the center of the city, near the Old City and Center City neighborhoods. There are other hotels on the periphery of the city, but they’re so far away it might not be worth booking them despite their lower prices. The hotels in the center of Philadelphia have good access to public transportation and the rest of the city, though they may not have parking garages.
Philadelphia has something to offer for everyone amidst its parks, theaters, music venues, restaurants, museums, and academic research centers.
Philadelphia’s museums like the Franklin Institute and Battleship New Jersey are especially worth a visit for those passing by, though they’re hardly the only notable museums. For a living museum, check out the Amish markets, where members of the Amish community sell their wares in traditional form.
If museums aren’t your thing, check out Philadelphia’s cuisine, which combines American fare with an Italian flair resulting in fatty deliciousness.
Philadelphia’s sports scene is tough to beat, boasting popular baseball, football, basketball, and hockey teams. Many of the stadia within Philadelphia are near hotels, so you should be sure to check the schedules and book accordingly. Given that there’s a sport for every season, the sports have little effect on the price of Philadelphia’s hotels, but it may affect the availability of particular hotels you might be interested in.
Many cool tourist attractions. Of course Liberty Bell and Constitution Center are must visit places. Loved Reading Market for local good vibe. For young kids, Please Touch Museum is wonderful.
An amazing city and a trendy spot to hangout! Definitely a great place to go!
This is one of our favorite cities. It has a little or lots of everything that a city should have.
It really is always sunny in Philadelphia. Even in a dreary foggy day, Philadelphia is bright. Philadelphia has a great day time feel as far as getting all of your walking and exploring done. But the night life is very blah. Lots of sports bars filled with testosterone filled football fans who can't handle a little bit of booze. But that's just inner city. Outside the city is a real treat. It almost feels like a nice walk through a small town in a Thomas Kinkade painting (we visited right after the snow storm) I happened to stumble across a really cool antique thrift shop and a HUGE music store which specializes in vinyl. I thoroughly enjoyed Philadelphia. So much that I began to research living expenses within the housing market!!
