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.

Great Location

This hotel allowed us to see all we wanted to in historic Philadelphia. It was a short walk to all the historic sites you want to see. Starbucks, pizza, and ice cream were close too. We didn't have to get in the car once.

Franklin Fountain ice cream cost me 35 dollars for 3 cones and 2 sundaes. It was good but not worth the price.

Philly 2009

The location was great for seeing the historic sites. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly, helpful and enthusiastic. We would have liked the pool water to be a tad warmer - the water was very cold and with the breeze from being on top of the roof, it was chilly! All in all, a very good hotel and we would recommend it to others.

Over Night Stay

The room itself was very nice. The bed was pillow soft and extra pillows were provided. The decor was up to date. However, it was stuck behind a wall at the end of a hall. Right next to the room was the exit to the stairwell where people where coming in and out all night because there was no smoking in the hotel except for the stair well which had built in ashtrays right in the steps. The noise from the street was pretty loud too. Awoke to sevral people chating outside the front entrance very early. The room was located on the second floor. I liked the room but would not have stayed another night.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The hotel is located only one block from most of the historic sites. It is also only one block from the Distric Court House where I needed to be first thing on the moring. It was nice not having to rush in the morning or worry about transportation. A parking garage was provided. A little confusing to get to because of the one way streets.

Ideal Location, Great Customer Service

This Holiday Inn was excellent. The customer service was top-notch. Parking was discounted since we were guests at the hotel which was also a plus. The location is just 1 block away from the Independence Hall and Liberty Bell so we were able to see a lot of Philly in the short time we were there. The hotel is also near the Betsy Ross House and tons of other A+ attractions in Philly. And for the coffee addict, there is also a Starbucks about 1 block away. Initially, I thought the price was too expensive as I typically stay at more budget hotels. But the location seemed ideal and I really wanted to see as much as possible during my short stay. The extra expense was well worth it. I could not have asked for a better place to stay and will stay there again the next time I am in Philly.

Great sightseeing in walking distance

Close to historic sites we wanted to see and close access to good public transportation to get to University of Pennsylvania. We came to this hotel twice for these reasons, when we moved our son to Penn and when we went to graduation.

Great Stay

The hotel was literally in the middle of everything. Most of the big sites were within blocks, making site seeing a breeze.

Many places stop serving dinner on weeknights before 9, so check kitchen hours beforehand if you plan to eat late.
