5 Best Boutique Hotels In Philadelphia

Updated: June 26, 2021

Philadelphia is a bustling city located in Pennsylvania on the east coast of the United States of America.  The “City of Brotherly Love” played a crucial role in the country’s development.

In 1787, the Founding Fathers of the U.S. boldly signed the Declaration of Independence in this city. Today, Philadelphia is a famous tourist spot with numerous historical sights, delicious food, and a plethora of vibrant culture.

Perhaps one of the most iconic sights to see is the Liberty Bell located in Independence National Historic Park. However, you can also see a slice of history walking through Elfreth Alley. If you are a museum fanatic, you’ll love the Franklin Institute, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the African American Museum. Don’t forget to also fill your stomach up with a world-famous Philly cheesesteak!

If you’re interested in visiting this historic city, here are the five best boutique hotels in Philadelphia.

 

Wm. Mulherin Sons Hotel

Wm Mulherin’s Sons

This late 19th-century boutique hotel offers guests a unique experience. Wm Mulherin’s Sons is actually a trendy Italian restaurant with rooms, which is not something that you see every day. A short stroll away from this hotel is other local restaurants, bars, and a robust indie music scene.

Staying at this hotel is an exclusive experience. There are only four rooms with arched windows, wood flooring, skylights, and a claw-foot bathtub. Its building used to be an Irish whiskey factory, and its past life still fills the hotel. You can even see exposed ducts, barrel-weighing scales and pulleys, and pipes from the former factory today.

Guests at this hotel love the unique design, excellent location, and delicious restaurant and bar.
