4 star hotel
Area: Center City West
0.29 mi from Rittenhouse Square
Best Rooms: The hotel is surrounded by taller buildings, so a good view may be hard to come by; however, rooms facing 18th Street are a better option than rooms directly facing a neighboring building.
Best Rooms: Rooms facing north toward Locust St. have views of a beautiful mural on a building across from the hotel, while rooms facing south overlook a courtyard area. Rooms on floor 5 offer the best of these two views.
