An ornate fireplace dominates the breathtaking marble lobby of this towering hotel in the historic district. Enjoy cocktails in the adjoining lounge. The spacious rooms, many of which overlook bustling Old City, have free wireless Internet, basic traditional furniture, flat-screen televisions, and sofas. All are decorated in clean whites, deep blues, and cream colors. Bathrooms have large marble baths and lighted makeup mirrors. Upon check-in, children are greeted with
a "sensational kids" gift bag (which itself turns into a nifty little backpack) with toys; they're also treated to complimentary cookies and milk. This is a pleasant base for visiting the nearby art galleries and cafés, as well as the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, and other sights.
