In 1775, Philadelphia was a hotbed of activity with delegates from our 13 colonies meeting in Independence Hall to vote on whether or not we stayed under British rule. Once that decision was made, they deliberated over the wording of the Declaration of Independence.
Fast forward a few centuries, instead of John Hancock, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams walking in what today is Old City, the Historic District, it’s millions of tourists coming to visit the Liberty Bell, Carpenters Hall and other places that make Philadelphia the Cradle of Liberty.
Amidst the historical sites, shopping and cultural venues are high-end hotels, such as the Hotel Monaco where guestrooms are several grades above standard, The Study at University City’s communal areas are perfect for connecting and people-watching, and Lokal Old City where industrial chic meets high tech. Each of the following nine hotels is decked out in the bells and whistles of 21st century technology.
