A SYMBOL OF FREEDOM, STEEPED IN HISTORY
When Willian Penn, a Quaker, began planning the city of Philadelphia in 1682, he based it on his vision of freedom and religion tolerance. Little did he know that his City of Brotherly Love would become one of the most politically and socially important cities of its day.
The nation’s second capital played a critical role in the American Revolutionary War, the Declaration of Independence and US Constitution were drafted here and it hosted the Centennial Exposition in 1876.
The East Coast’s second-largest city, Philadelphia today is filled with charm, historical legends and cultural attractions. Near our hotel, guests can discover it all, including the Philadelphia Museum of Art, whose stairs are the very one’s the legendary Rocky Balboa trained on; JFK Stadium, host of the 1985 Live Aid Benefit; Lincoln Financial Field, home to the NFL Eagles; Reading Terminal Market and more.
