  • Truly an awesome building. Whether you are a Mason, a history buff, or appreciate beauty and architecture of past centuries, it is worth the trip. The docent tour was wonderful as well.
  • Best tour I have taken in a while. You will be amazed at all of the different themed rooms in this place. Lot's of history and is a must on your to do list while visiting Philadelphia!

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.
