This striking Old City building has a former life as a cap-making shop, but is now one of Philadelphia’s best boutique hotels. There are only six rooms, and all of them have been carefully styled and expertly thought through. Decor-wise, it shows off the Jersey Ice Cream Co.’s modern-meets-industrial style to perfection. Expect minimalistic expanses interrupted with bold flashes of colour throughout. All rooms have laundry provisions, seating areas, full kitchens and other useful additions, but perhaps the most truly contemporary aspect are the so-called “invisible service” amenities. Check out via app and use the in-room tablet to access a city guide to Philadelphia. All in? This hotel is a total winner.
The average holiday-maker or business traveller is spoilt for choice when it comes to accommodation options in Philadelphia. But not all hotels were created equal and some, like the ones on this list, are more than a little bit special. From on-trend interiors that will make your Insta followers green with envy to the very best in service and facilities, these are the boutique hotels to up the luxe-rating of your stay away from home. So whether you’re in town to see the city’s best attractions and museums, or have other things to do on your mind, you sure won’t regret making a room reservation at any of these.
