Penn's View Hotel

14 N. Front St., Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 19106, USA

This cosmopolitan little hotel in a refurbished 19th-century commercial building on the fringe of Old City has its own brand of urban charm. The owner is a well-regarded Italian-born restaurateur who also runs Ristorante Panorama, the downstairs eatery, and Il Bar, with perhaps the best wine cellar in the city. Rooms are comfortable and rather European looking, some with Chippendale-style furniture and floral wallpaper, others with a more modern feel (late 2015 saw a sweep of room renovations and updates); some rooms feature fireplaces and whirlpool baths. Some have views of the Delaware River.
