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.

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.

friendly staff

Although our visit was short, we had a series of questions and request for the staff behind the desk. Each question was answered in a friendly and professional manner and our request concerning a later check out time for instance was granted with a "no problem" attitude. By the way, the room was clean and without any problems at a good price and ideal location in the heart of the historic district.

Business Trip to Philly

Attended a business meeting. Hotel was clean & staff were friendly. I had an accessible room & accommodation needs were met. The Ice machine & snack machine was not working on 5th floor. I ate in the hotel restaurant but they were out of various meal (7:30 pm) options so settled for a sub when I wanted a meal. Otherwise great stay. Not sure why I need to pay for parking when already paying to stay in hotel.

Great Location from Greyhound Bus Stop

I needed a quick hotel that was located in downtown Philadelphia near the Greyhound bus stop of Filbert Street. This was a nice hotel with great customer service. The rooms were average but Holiday Inn is always a nice chain hotel to stay at. Overall, great experience.

Unbeatable location, awful night's sleep

Incredibly noisy mechanical work made for an awful night's sleep. Hotel engineering team dealing with some kind of mechanical problem created an ungodly racket that me & my family from sleeping. I called front desk to complain and each time I complained the noise stopped (so clearly they knew what they were doing) for about an hour (perhaps hoping we'd be deep sleepers), before starting up again. Then I would call to complain & the noise would stop again...but only for an hour or so. Why this couldn't wait until daytime is beyond me. Staff said they couldn't move us because hotel was sold out and they couldn't compensate us because room hadn't been booked directly with hotel.

SIngle traveler visiting friends

I was in philadelphia to see some friends during a long weekend, and since they all had to work, I chose to stay in Old City. The Holiday Inn was right aorund the corner from the Liberty Bell, Independence Plaza, Constitution Hall and the African American Heritage Museum. The rooftop pool was very clean and good size. The rooms are a bit small, but can't complain for Old CIty. Great stay and I'll be back!

Perfect weekend getaway

The hotel is in the perfect location. It's in the middle of a lot of landmarks. No matter what direction you walk in there is something to see. It is also great that the pool closes at 10pm. After a full day of sight seeing it was great to cool down and unwind in the pool. We would definetely stay there again.
