The Wyndham Hotel Philadelphia creates a stark contrast against its Historic District setting, cutting a sleek urban figure within the old world charm of its surroundings. The hotel was given a focused facelift in 2014, and now ivory and stone décor is set against uncluttered dark wood furnishings. Despite its laidback name, the on-site Coins Restaurant and Pub is equally chic, with its urban lanterns and contemporary American cuisine. If you prefer to enjoy your meals alone, the extensive menu can be ordered from as a room service option. Get in a good workout at the on-site fitness center, or settle in for a day of watery entertainment at the rooftop pool.
Location
The Wyndham Hotel Philadelphia is buried in the Old City, a few blocks from the Delaware River and the waterfront activity hub of Penn's Landing. It's a neighborhood renowned for its history – at the nearby Independence National Park, visitors can encounter the famous Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, the legendary place where both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were signed. Take the Constitutional Walking Tour to explore the area, or catch the subway downtown from 5th Street Station for more 21st century options among the restaurants and stores of Center City.

Policies
Suites toward the south of the hotel are quieter, and for those who enjoy the spookier side of the Historic District, Christ Church's cemetery views are worthwhile.

Water babies are happiest on the seventh floor, which is just beneath the swimming pool.

Philly vaca

The rooms were spacious and clean. Bathrooms need updating. No free breakfast, coffee, water or snacks in lobby. Close to older part of Philly and all the best places to see and visit within walking distance.

Disappointing

We picked this hotel because it was literally in the center of everything we wanted to do. How ever the electric went off in the middle of the night no problem because they were fixing the electric, but the ac never went back on so waking up sweating hot wasn't fun than we got woke up by construction the manager was nice enough to move us and give us that night free which isn't what we wanted we just wanted to be able to sleep in a little. So we go to our second room and we go to get ready for our day... The tub was backed up when we showered we were bathing with water past our shins. Even the maintence guy said they were having problems in this room so I don't know why they would have put you in here. To me it wasn't worth the money so one thing I am thankful for is how Simon (the manager) handled the situation. But to be honest it kind of ruined my whole thoughts on Wyndham hotels. Eh you win some you lose some.

Great Philadelphia Hotel!

Hotel was super clean, busy but quiet, staff was extra helpful, location is hard to beat! The hotel staff provided us with multiple room keys for the same room for guests arriving at different times, stored luggage for us on our last day, answered all of our questions, etc. The lobby was always busy and the bar was full and hopping but never noisy or annoying. Hotel was clean and spacious. If I'm returning anytime soon to Philly I will be staying here!

Great location!

Great location and a friendly staff. Not the newest property but it was a great experience overall. Be sure to specify you want a room without handicap accommodations if you don't need them.

Good business trip

I enjoyed my stay here. It was in a great location and a nice walk from the convention center. The restaurant staff were very kind and helpful and the room was always kept clean (great work by Cat). I would return there anytime and would recommend it.
