Top 10 Boutique Hotels in Philadelphia
Abundant extras and lush surroundings leave guests feeling downright spoiled.
What this property lacks in overall size, it makes up for tenfold in charm and elegance, as well as in its boast of offering the largest hotel guest rooms in the city. Its Adolf Biecker Spa and Salon has been named among the top five spa salons in the U.S. by Intercoiffure Mondial, adding to this hotel's appeal to upscale leisure travelers seeking an indulgent European experience. Many of the spacious guest rooms offer views of downtown Philadelphia's Rittenhouse Square, as well as whirlpool bathtubs, mahogany furnishings, entertainment centers, mini-bars and marble bathrooms with separate dressing areas. While the hotel accommodates business travelers with high-speed Internet access, speaker phones and fax machines available in-room, they'd better keep a close eye on their expense accounts, since the property is home to excellent restaurants, including the Mary Cassatt Tearoom and Lounge with views of a cloistered garden, the renowned Lacroix at The Rittenhouse serving French cuisine, and Scott Conant's Italian restaurant Scarpetta. During your stay, make sure to shop at Evantine for fresh flowers, crafts and international trinkets.
