Local Attractions



Experience Philadelphia Like a Local.

Go beyond the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, and get ready to experience Philadelphia like the locals do. Check out these insider recommendations from the expert staff at our Philadelphia hotel. 


"Sabrina's Cafe, a BYOB on 18th and Callowhill (3 blocks from the hotel) has an amazing brunch. The stuffed french toast is my favorite. If you go on Sunday, get there when they open at 8am - otherwise you'll have a long wait!"

"The Rose Tattoo Cafe is my favorite dinner spot. Ask for seating upstairs if available. And try the chipotle watermelon and shrimp salad appetizer - delicious!"  

"If you're looking for a lovely evening at a fabulous restaurant, try R2L on 16th and Chestnut (6 blocks from the hotel). It's on the 37th floor and has an amazing view of the entire city."

"Brick American Eatery at 17th and Lombard (10 blocks from the hotel) is my favorite place for Saturday or Sunday brunch. I love the grapefruit martini and eggs benedict."

"I love Marra's Italian restaurant on Passyunk Avenue & Morris Street in South Philadelphia. It is a quick cab ride from the hotel and has the best pizza and pasta in the city."

"When you have a sweet tooth, treat yourself to ice cream at Scoop deVille on 18th & Chestnut (8 blocks from the hotel)."

"The Walnut Street Theatre is the oldest theater in Center City and a great place to see musicals. At 8th and Walnut, it's a cab ride away frm the hotel. Barrymore's Cafe is located right in the theatre and serves up delicious desserts."

"Philadelphia Trolley Works and 76 Carriage Company has the best tours of the city, including double decker buses, trolleys, walking tours and carriage rides."

"My favorite spot for a cheesesteak if Tony Juniors at 18th & Sansom. Just a quick 15 minute walk from the hotel.  This place also has other sandwiches like chicken cutlet and broccoli, mmmm, great!"

"Jim's on South Street is another great place for cheesestaks. The original Jim's has been a Philadelphia tradition since 1939."

"DiBruno Brothers is an incredible gourmet grocery store and cheese market. Shop for delicious, one of a kind groceries, or if you have lots of room in your suitcase, you can even pick up a gift basket to bring home."

"Zahav is a very cozy, family friend Israely restaruant, located only two block's fromt the Old City's nightlife. Order TAY’IM (Taste of Zahav) – Salatim and Humus for the table, Each guest chooses two small dishes (‘Mezze’), one skewer and dessert."

"Maggiano’s Little Italy has an unbeatable Family Style menu with generous portions at a great price, and they always provide excellent service.  I always leave there full, and happy.  Save room for the warm Apple Crostada."

 "Great shopping on Walnut Street, Rittenhouse Row.  Only 6 blocks from the Sheraton are amazing shops. Chestnut Street also has great, unique shops"
