The 10 best hotels in Philadelphia

Discover the top hotels in Philadelphia handpicked by local expert Laura Ratliff.

Known as the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia is a vibrant and historic destination with a captivating blend of culture, art, and rich history. As the birthplace of American independence, the city attracts travelers from all walks of life and has diverse hotel offerings to match – from boutique gems in charming neighborhoods to luxurious accommodations in the heart of Center City. The city is an easy weekend trip from my home in New York City, and I’ve possibly spent more nights in Philadelphia’s best hotels than many locals. Let my expertise make wading through the choices easy for you – the traveler. My recommendations are based not only on the hotels' amenities, but also on their unique features, proximity to key landmarks, and overall quality of experience, helping you unlock the best of Philadelphia's hotel scene and ensuring an unforgettable stay in this dynamic city.


Wm. Mulherin's Sons Hotel


1355 North Front Street



This one-of-a-kind gem is set in Philadelphia’s trendy Fishtown neighborhood. Housed in a restored whiskey blending and bottling warehouse, Wm. Mulherin’s Sons has just four rooms, but they all seamlessly combine its rich historic past with contemporary sophistication.
Every detail here pays homage to the hotel’s industrial heritage, creating a rustic and inviting ambiance for guests. Beyond its stylish rooms, the hotel’s namesake restaurant offers an exceptional culinary experience.
Renowned for its rustic Italian cuisine, wood-fired pizzas, and an extensive selection of craft cocktails, Wm. Mulherin’s Sons’ restaurant is a favorite spot for both locals and visitors alike thanks to pies like the Spicy Jawn, topped with pepperoni, hot coppa, caciocavallo, sharp provolone, long hots, and tomato.
Moreover, the hotel’s location is ideal for exploring the surrounding area. Fishtown is known for its eclectic art scene, live music venues, independent boutiques, and a wide array of dining options.


Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia at Comcast Center


One North 19th Street



The Philadelphia Four Seasons is situated on the upper floors of the iconic Comcast Technology Center, one of the tallest buildings in the city and considered the jewel of the city’s skyline. Its grand architecture and floor-to-ceiling windows offer breathtaking panoramic views of the cityscape – if you’re anything like me, you’ll be blown away by the 360-degree views from the 60th-floor sky lobby.
But beyond its impressive facade, the Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia boasts exceptional service, providing guests with a seamless and opulent stay from start to finish. The hotel’s 219 spacious and elegantly appointed rooms boast contemporary amenities, like Sodashi toiletries.
Located right in the heart of the city’s financial district, it also offers easy access to corporate offices,convention centers as well as proximity to cultural landmarks like the Barnes Foundation and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.


Kimpton Hotel Monaco Philadelphia


433 Chestnut Street



This enchanting boutique hotel in Philadelphia’s historic Old City district is housed in a striking building dating back to 1907. True to the Kimpton brand, Hotel Monaco has a whimsical and eclectic style that embraces bold colors, rich textures, and quirky elements and is also pet-friendly (one of my favorite facts about the hotel), a trademark of Kimpton hotels.
Other notable Kimpton amenities – like the complimentary evening wine hours and loaner bikes – are available here. The on-site restaurant, Red Owl Tavern, focuses on farm-to-table cuisine and Philadelphia’s craft beer scene, with a rotating draft list of some local favorites.
Meanwhile, the hotel’s prime location in Old City is within easy walking distance of some of Philadelphia’s most iconic landmarks, including Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell.


The Notary Hotel, Philadelphia, Autograph Collection


21 North Juniper Street



Initially built in 1926 as the City Hall Annex, the Notary Hotel is another Philadelphia property updated to showcase the city’s rich history. Formerly The Courtyard Philadelphia Downtown, The Notary’s architecture reflects the Renaissance Revival style, boasting an impressive marble staircase and a stunning, restored rotunda adorned with intricate details in the lobby.
Almost all of the building’s original features – from majestic chandeliers and decorative moldings – have been preserved, creating a sense of grandeur and nostalgia that carries over to the Art Deco-infused rooms. Not surprisingly, dining at The Notary Hotel is a delight, too – the hotel’s on-site restaurant, Sabroso + Sorbo, serves up flavorful tapas and other Latin-inspired cuisine.
Fun fact: The hotel’s name, “The Notary,” pays homage to the building’s history as the former City Hall Annex, where notary public services were once offered.


The Study at University City


20 South 33rd Street



Known for its contemporary yet scholarly vibe, The Study at University City is a chic boutique and top-rated hotel in Philadelphia’s vibrant University City neighborhood. Designed to cater to the needs of both business and leisure travelers, The Study’s 212 rooms are thoughtfully designed to create a comfortable and productive space, featuring academic-inspired amenities like mini-libraries, and writing desks – unsurprisingly, given its university-centric location.
Food isn’t an afterthought here either, as the popular CO-OP is focused on the best of East Coast cuisine, drawing on local ingredients and purveyors to recreate both classics like shrimp & grits and spin-offs like local black bass with roasted cauliflower and fennel in bell pepper emulsion.
Since the hotel is so popular with university parents visiting their students, book earlier during peak dates like graduation.


The Inn at Penn, a Hilton Hotel


3600 Sansom Street
