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 was great for a three day stay in Philadelphia! Friendly service, very clean, and a decent price. Nice workout room, only downside was no complimentary breakfast, but everything else made up for that. Best of all was it's incredible location! Two blocks from a metro stop, Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, the Constitution Center, and more! About 5 blocks from Chinatown and some awesome food! Overall, this was a great hotel and we would absolutely recommend it to anyone!

Great value!

Stayed Memorial Day weekend 2013 -- $90/night booked on discount website. While the hotel is a dated building and currently undergoing updates, my stay was perfectly good. My room had updated furnishing and was very clean. The hotel location is extremely convenient to the popular touristy spots. Major compliments to Sentia at the front desk, who deserves a customer service award for being extremely helpful and courteous.

Ok stay

I probably would NOT stay here again. Hotel charges $25/night additional to park & the garage doesn't have direct access into hotel. Wifi didn't work either.

Super Spring Break!

This hotel was great for us! Could not have asked for a better location..right in the heart of the old city! The staff was so nice and helpful. The only improvement that we might suggest...beds were a bit uncomfortable. Will definitely come back and stay again!

Great Working hotel location

Experience was good. I had wheelchair access room (guess that's all they had left?) right outside the elevators. Bathroom a little yucky....but room, bed, TV OK....wireless access a little spotty and frustrating at prime times. Location however was Spot ON!

Location, location, location

This is the second stay at the Holiday Inn in the Historic District of Philly for a convention and love the location. Only a few block walk from the convention center, the hotel is surrounded by history.
