An excellent option for those seeking a homey atmosphere with indulgent extras.
Although it opened in 1998, this hotel was designed to reflect 1930s modern deco—you may feel as if you've traveled back in time to a cruise ship in the early 20th century. Its convenient location among Philadelphia's downtown attractions makes it popular with tourists who want to avoid the generic hotel scene and don't feel like spending half their holiday in the car, driving to or from the next attraction. Guest rooms are equipped with all the basics, such as air conditioning, Direct TV and private baths; at the same time, a singular note is offered by artwork that reflects the hotel's overall Art Deco atmosphere. The inn offers the best of big hotel living and B&B intimacy, with a fitness center that is always open and a deluxe, homemade breakfast buffet included in your stay.
