Our Hotel

Just two blocks from the Pennsylvania Convention Center, the Philadelphia 201 Hotel is walking distance to Love Park, the Franklin Institute, and the iconic Philadelphia Museum of Art. Travelers can explore historic landmarks such as the Liberty Bell, Franklin Square - one of the city's five original squares from 1682 - or the home of Betsy Ross, where the first American flag was made in 1776. In their downtime, guests can take advantage of our newly renovated indoor pool and fully-equipped fitness center, or relax at our welcoming Terrace restaurant or bar, the Local. Our 759 guest rooms feature comfortable beds that invite guests to wind down after a busy day, as well as fantastic views of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, a scenic boulevard that runs through the cultural heart of Philadelphia. For meetings, our planning and banquet staff transform our 58,000 square feet of flexible event space into the perfect venue for conventions, board meetings, or any occasion anyone wants to celebrate.
