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.

Neighborhood
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.
Hints and tips
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.

Perfect location, loved it!

This is an old style Holiday inn right in the Historic District of "Old Philly". The staff was friendly and attentive when I had interactions with them. The 8th floor outdoor pool was nice and had great views of the city! The only complaint was the lack of a free breakfast and the cost of eating at the restaurant in the hotel. We did not eat there not only because of the price, but because of all the great places to eat in the city! I would recommend it this hotel to others. NOTE: this is an old hotel and the look is a little dated, so if you have an issue with that then go to the Ritz and pay 400.00 + a night.

Go to 9th street and Christian which is the center of the Market area. This area is really cool if you like old school markets. There are also a bunch of small little eating spots too. When your there grab a slice of cheese pizza from Lombardo's right on the corner of 9th and Christian.

Very Nice Hotel

We planned this trip to see a Philadelphia Eagles game and take in a few of the historic sites of Philadelphia. Since we only had a day and a half, this hotel had the perfect location to go sightseeing. Everything you would want to see in Philadelphia was only a block or two away. We did have to drive anywhere to see sights like the Liberty Bell, Independance Hall, and Benjamin Franklin's old homesite. The staff was very helpful and knew exactly what we were looking for, even when we didn't know! The only issue I really had was we left the "do not disturb" sign on our door and someone come into the room anyway. We knew this because the lights were turned off and the towels from our shower had been removed from the room.

Smaller Room then Most in Hotel....

Although hotel was clean, the room was smaller than the others, and the food cost in the hotel resturant was high in respect for the quality of food received. Location was good to the histroric area of town, however a fire station is on the NE corner of the intersection the hotel is located on, and the noise of continual fire truck sirens durning the night was upsetting.

Terrific location

We enjoyed walking to the historic sites of Philadelphia, and to the great restaurants on Market St. right around the corner. The room was clean, roomy and comfortable. The one thing we found lacking was a small refrigerator for our leftovers, and the view out our window was not great. The area was quiet and we felt safe at night.

Great Hotel

This hotel is in the perfect location. Public transportation was convenient to and from the airport. Dropped off a student at Penn, transportation was close by. In the heart of the historic district, close to everything. Many fantastic restaurants all within walking distance! The people at the front desk were very knowledgeable and gave us all kinds of useful information! I would definitely stay here my next trip to Philadelphia......
