Sonesta Philadelphia Downtown

1800 Market St., Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 19103, USA

After a $30-million renovation in 2014, Center City's Sonesta pairs hyperstylized looks with an interesting collection of amenities. An urbane design aesthetic, heavy on the blacks and reds and minimalist furniture, touches both common areas and private guest rooms. For active types, there is a rooftop swimming pool and 24-hour fitness center, plus complimentary vouchers to the nearby Philadelphia Sports Club. Art Bar, the hotel's cocktail and small plate gathering space, features an attached gallery run in partnership with the neighboring Center for Established Visual Arts. In 2016, the ground floor restaurant space will become home to a 200+ seat location of Ruth's Chris Steak House.
