Though it's certainly stylish, it would be wrong to describe The Westin Philadelphia as "hip." With its grand ballrooms, chairs-by-the-fireplace lobby, and tastefully appointed guest rooms, "timeless" is the better word.
Accommodations at the Westin Philadelphia are among the city's most spacious and comfortable. The Westin chain's trademark Heavenly Beds are as fluffy as Cloud Nine, to say nothing of the Heavenly cribs and dog beds (no joke). The full range of amenities are standard, with Westin Workout Rooms on offer to appease your inner Tony Little.
The Westin Philadelphia's greatest virtue, however, is its location. The hotel is within blocks of Rittenhouse Square, the city's most beloved green space, and close to historic attractions including the Liberty Bell, Elfreth's Alley Museum, and Betsy Ross House.
