The Best Hotels in Philadelphia, USA

The StarTripper Journal presents the best places to stay in Philadelphia, both international luxury and boutique choices.

Our Team to Philidelphia are professional travelers.

Philadelphia, or 'Philly' as it's affectionately known, is still retaining small-town charm, but has all the glamor of New York City and Washington. The city's oldest buildings are well-preserved and America's early history and role in building democracy are sometimes more accessible here than in the capital – it's a beautiful place that is easy and rewarding to explore.

A must is the newly renovated Rodin museum - it holds Rodin's great works The Thinker and Burghers of Calais among its 140 sculptures that span every part of the French sculptor's spectacular career.

In Philadelphia shoppers find options to fit every age, taste and budget. While Rittenhouse Square and other high-end areas are perennial destinations for the latest looks, pocket neighbourhoods like Midtown Village, Fishtown and Old City each offer their own unique allure.

Since clothing and shoe sales are tax-free, there’s no better place to stock up on style than in Philadelphia.

Currency is US-Dollar (USD or $).
