A hotel near Penn's Landing's, a happenin' hub

Penn's Landing, a waterfront area of Center City along the Delaware River, proves a hub of family-friendly activities at any time of year. With a name that commemorates the landing of William Penn, Pennsylvania's founder, Penn's Landing embodies the creative and innovative spirit of the city by hosting seasonal pop-ups and a plethora of outdoor fun. In summer months, residents and visitors alike flock here for alfresco dining, concerts and movies; in the colder months, wintertime revelers come for the ice-skating, fire pits, beer garden and more. Throughout the year, a fireworks extravaganza commemorates such holidays as Independence Day and New Year's Eve.
