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.

Philly Trip

This hotel is right near the Independence Historical District. The room was nice. It had extra nice shampoo, soap and lotions. They had ice water in the lobby. Any hotel at higher prices should have them but often don't. I had a problem with getting onto the wi-fi, whereas, in other hotels I don't. Their system is more complicated than it needs to be.

Very disappointed

I booked this hotel for a romantic weekend with my fiance. I was excited about the heated pool and the close proximity to Market Street. Although the hotel has a nice location, that is all this hotel offers, which does not at all justify the high price tag. Check in is at 4 and check out is at 11 and the pool is only open from 10 to 10, Me and my fiance were hoping to go for a late night swim after strolling around downtown Philly, but when we arrived back at 10pm, not only was the pool closed, the way overpriced restaurant was as well. I would not recommend this hotel unless you only care about proximity to downtown.

A short walk from the hotel you can walk across the bridge from Pennsylvania to New Jersey. Great place for a view of Philly and a perfect place for photographers!

Nice Place at the Historic District

If you need a place to stay at the historic district,, this will be a good place to stay. Clean, comfortable, every things in order. All the site you want to go are in short walking distance.

Fun stuff

Really great staff, lovely hotel and room. Only thing is the rooms really need mini fridges! We will be planning another trip to the area next year and will definitely be staying at this hotel again.

Go to Gigi's bar down the street. Great staff, awesome food and beer, and you get a discount for staying at this hotel.

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!

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.
