Locate Your New Philly HQ

Find your new digs on the corner of South 17th and Sansom Streets, just a short distance from Philadelphia's City Hall. We love sitting where storied history meets cutting-edge newness—situated two blocks from Rittenhouse Square and about nine miles (or 25 minutes) from Philadelphia International Airport. (Take a flat-rate cab for $28.50 – plus tip.) Alternatively, the SEPTA train proves inexpensive and convenient; simply take the “Airport Line,” which stops outside the baggage claim areas of each terminal, to Suburban Station (located at 17th and JFK Boulevard, four blocks north of the hotel). The train costs $7 and takes approximately 20 minutes to get into Center City. Find the schedule here. The Lady Liberty Shuttle also offers transport from the airport for $10. The shuttle stops at all Center City hotels and can easily be found at the airport. Click here, or contact our concierge at 215.563.5006 for more information. Lastly, if you’ve arrived here by car, take advantage of 24-hour valet parking in our onsite garage ($48 per night, with unlimited in-and-out privileges). Please allow at least 30 minutes when calling for your vehicle. The valet loading and unloading area can be found on 17th Street.
