After a busy day of sightseeing and exploration, lay your head down where history was made.

The diverse selection of hotels in Philadelphia’s Historic District (which spans from the Delaware River to 7th Street and from Vine Street to Lombard Street) ranges from boutique inns to big-brand chains, each of which has its own charm and appeal. Onsite restaurants, Delaware River views, in-room fireplaces and private balconies are just a few of the many amenities that the Historic District’s guests can enjoy.

Best of all, hotels in the Historic District put you just steps away from the neighborhood’s must-see cultural attractions.

Check out our complete guide to booking a stay in Philadelphia’s Historic District below.
