The Westin Hotel Philadelphia is decked out in cool tones of grey and white to keep in with the Westin group's elegant image, though the warmth of open fires and cushy sofas await guests in the lobby. The hotel is equally equipped for both business and pleasure, with grand ballrooms – even one featuring an equally grand piano – and high-speed Internet in the meeting rooms (fees may apply). If you're looking for workouts in between the workloads, borrow some gear from the WestinWORKOUT program or check in for some serious exercise at the fitness studio – the sauna awaits your sore muscles afterwards. The lobby lounge offers casual snacks, but those looking for a full-blown steak should try Winthorpe & Valentine instead.

Neighborhood
The Westin Philadelphia's Center City location puts you near Rittenhouse Square and the local retailers and international designers along Rittenhouse Row, as well as the Shops at Liberty Place. Business travelers will find themselves close to major companies like PricewaterhouseCoopers, Comcast and Wachovia. History buffs will be happy to learn that Independence National Park is under a mile away. You can always rest your legs and use the SEPTA local transport to shuttle between destinations from 15th Street station.
Hints and tips
The restaurants on upscale Chestnut Street can be pricey, but gourmets will appreciate the likes of Italian Le Castagne.

If you want cheaper but solid eats, head north to the Chinatown neighborhood just by Franklin Square, and go for popular haunts like Sang Kee Peking Duck House.

Great Service makes for a Great Trip

From check in to check out, our experience was excellent. The front desk staff was very pleasant upon check in, and had no problems taking our questions about how to get around Philly. The room was good, but not great. The bed was very comfortable, but the bathroom left a little to be desired. The duel shower heads weren't so duel as one didn't work properly. After spending the day on the town, the bar was a nice place to relax and have a couple drinks. Overall, the hotel experience was great.

great value and location

[...] Clean, fresh but nothing special. Friendly staff. Location is good for restaurants and walking to Phila Museum of Art and Independence Hall if you like walking. If you can get a good price you should consider it.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

The famous John Wannamaker pipe organ (now Macy's) is played at noon and five pm on weekdays. Free of course. The Macy's Chestnut St entrance is close to the "great hall" with the organ.

Comfortable Stay

Upon entering the room for the first time, my girlfriend and I were immediately impressed with the spacious room and massive, plush bed. The style of the room (tastefully contemporary) also did not disappoint...perfect, as I was trying to impress her on a romantic evening. The room was quiet as can be overnight -no annoying guests or city noise. My one complaint - the alarm clock went off at 7:00AM and my attempts to shut it off failed initially (I snoozed it). At around 8:30, once I had dealt with the alarm clock situation, someone knocked on our door and woke us up again with a "good morning"! I managed to gargle a "we're sleeping" in response. Other than these two minor disturbances, this place was totally awesome and I would recommend it for either business or pleasure. Just make sure you check the alarm clock before you hit the hay...

Go to Tequilas on 16th and Locust - authentic Mexican cuisine in a romantic, candlelit atmosphere. Very cool.
