Where to stay in Philadelphia

Most of Philadelphia's hotels cluster around the compact city center, ensuring quick and easy access to major tourist sights and activities. The only drawback to staying in this area is the lack of free parking, so if you're exploring by car, considering booking into a bed and breakfast in one of the city's residential blocks. Visitors planning on longer stays can also consider several apartment hotels, offering spacious furnished units with complimentary Wi-Fi, free bike rentals, and access to rooftop terraces.

  • If you are interested in all things nautical this is the place to go in Philadelphia. This a great family, fun place to visit. The staff are very approachable and informative.
  • Great value for the price. Whether you're a history buff or not, it will still be enjoyable. I was pleasentlty surprised at how much my wife and I enjoyed it. Great for a relaxing day at Penn's landing.
  • The dance recital for my niece was in a small, but quaint setting. Very presentable. Signage was good. Parking is HORRIBLE.
  • We were pleasantly surprised at how fun this was with our 5 year old. Lots to play with and climb on. Really engaging exhibits! Plus you get to your the submarine and war ship.
  • Nice place to take a walk. Was crowded on the day we were there. The restaurants are expensive. You can walk into the city and find affordable places to eat.
