See You In Philadelphia!

May 8, 2008
The historic City of Philadelphia offers a broad range of lodging options to tourist. These options cater to election of choices base on taste and/or budget.

Philadelphia, the largest city in Pennsylvania, boasts of its historical significance as the birthplace of the United States - where both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States were signed. Few cities in the United States can, thus, match its historic attractions. Every year, millions of tourists thrill to the sight of the Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell. Many visitors likewise enjoy touring Carpenters' Hall and Congress Hall, where Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and other early leaders laid the foundations of the then-new nation. Philly, as the city is popularly called, also takes pride in its world-famous orchestra, excellent colleges and universities, scenic parks, and outstanding museums.

It is easy to find lodgings for tourists in the city. A wide variety of hotels and inns, from luxury five-star to modest and discount accommodations, abound in the city's downtown and suburb areas.

For those looking for posh five-star accommodations, among the popular destinations are the famous Rittenhouse Hotel, the Wyndham Philadelphia, the Four Seasons Hotel and the Westin.

The Rittenhouse is only 8 miles from the Philadelphia International Airport. Located in the Center City's most prestigious downtown area, the hotel is within walking distance from the major museums, cultural attractions, world-class shopping, and the business district. Consistently recognized as one of the world's best hotels, The Rittenhouse has become the definitive name in five-star Philadelphia accommodations.

Soaring nine floors high, the Hotel offers 98 spacious guest rooms with lavish marble bathrooms, including 11 suites, all measuring between 450 and 600 square feet - the most spacious lodging available in the City. Beautifully appointed with rich mahogany furnishings and lush fabrics, the rooms maintain a historic charm and residential ambience that distinguishes Rittenhouse as the Philadelphia lodging leader.

The Wyndham Philadelphia at Franklin Plaza, located four blocks from the Pennsylvania Convention Center, provides spectacular views of downtown area. It offers both luxurious comfort and convenience with its newly renovated and handsomely appointed guest rooms and suites. Dining options at the Wyndham include the Shula's Steak House - ranked among America's top five steakhouses. Another dining option is The Terrace, which is a full service café that serves the finest American favorites for breakfast and lunch.

The Four Seasons Hotel, towering at eight-stories high, is located at One Logan Square, a few steps from the city's financial, retail and commercial center. Fronted by a peaceful and relaxing courtyard, the Four Seasons Hotel offers 364 elegant guest rooms, including 96 suites, all featuring federal-style furnishings depicting Philadelphia's rich history.

Located very near the Rittenhouse Hotel is another luxurious accommodation with a Rittenhouse Square address: the Westin Philadelphia. The Westin caters to both business and leisure travelers with its 294 guest rooms and 19 suites. All rooms are beautifully appointed with welcoming décor and revitalizing amenities. Its signature Heavenly Bed® ensures a relaxing night's sleep, and its the Heavenly Bath® offers a perfect place to refresh.

For discount and cheap lodging seekers, the options are plenty. There's the Comfort Inn Downtown Historic Area Hotel located in downtown Philadelphia, about half a mile from the Liberty Bell Pavilion, the Betsy Ross House and the Edgar Allan Poe House. Within about four miles of the hotel are The Ben Franklin National Memorial, Chinatown, the National Constitution Center and the Zoological Gardens.

Then there is the Courtyard, located in the 'Heart of Center City' and across City Hall. It offers all the facilities that make business and pleasure travel easy. Another option is the Club Quarters located in the business district of Philadelphia, and within two blocks from Rittenhouse Square. The Pennsylvania Convention Center, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Kimmel Performing Arts Center and the Academy of Natural Sciences are also all within close proximity to the hotel.
