I’m telling you about Philadelphia hotels – where to stay in Pennsylvania’s largest city, which lodging to choose, and how to book on your own. We’ve already been to Philadelphia ourselves and stayed in a cheap hotel that we booked on Booking.com, and now we’re ready to share with you some helpful tips on where to stay in the historic downtown and what the room rates are. We recommend 3, 4, and 5 star hotels in Philadelphia with good reviews – the best rated options for your stay after sightseeing: with spacious and clean rooms, breakfast, pool, and parking in the old city and near the airport.
Hotels in the center of Philadelphia
If you are going to go to Philadelphia on your own and are choosing where to stay there, we recommend booking a hotel in the center so that it is close to the main attractions. We liked two hotels there the best:
The Ritz-Carlton (from $300), the best and most comfortable but fairly expensive 5-star hotel, which is right across from the famous Philadelphia City Hall with the Penn statue on the roof, and close to One Liberty Lookout and Love Park;
Penn’s View Hotel (from $135) – A relatively inexpensive hotel in historic downtown Philadelphia with a high rating and breakfast, located near the subway across from Penn’s Harbor, the site of William Penn’s landing in America.
It’s also very convenient to stay right on the banks of the Delaware River with a beautiful panoramic view from your room – at the wonderful Hilton Hotel in the Harbor, which is recommended by everyone who has stayed there.
If you’re coming to Philadelphia by car, it’s best to book a hotel with free parking and close to the subway so you can leave your car there and take a tour of the historic downtown by public transportation. Look for a good option near the Race Vine subway station, the Best Western Plus Hotel.
Hotels in Philadelphia near the airport
