It's Hip to Honor History

AN OLD CITY PHILADELPHIA TREASURE

Visit Old City a new at our one-of-a-kind hotel

This one-time warehouse district, located between Front and 5th Streets and Chestnut and Vine Streets, allows visitors to delve into this city's (and our country's) storied past. They don't call it the “Birthplace of America” for nothing; you'll find the Betsy Ross House and the Edgar Allan Poe National Historic Site, where the writer resided during the publishing of his short story "The Telltale Heart.” Go on a time-traveling walkabout, strolling to Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell, the National Constitution Center, the National Museum of Jewish History as well as modern-day delights from art galleries and theaters to boutiques, restaurants and bars. Be sure check out nearby events like First Fridays, an epic exhibition of the neighborhood's arts scene that allows galleries, shops, studios and restaurants to open their doors the first Friday of each month to celebrate all things art. Exploring the past has never looked so cool.
