After a busy day of sightseeing and exploration, spend the night where American history was made.  The diverse selection of hotels in Philadelphia’s Historic District (which spans from the Delaware River to 7th Street and from Vine Street to Lombard Street) includes boutique inns as well as big-brand chains. On-site restaurants, Delaware River views, in-room fireplaces and private balconies are just a few of the many amenities that the Historic District’s guests can enjoy.  Best of all, hotels in the Historic District put guests just steps away from the neighborhood’s must-see cultural attractions, including The Liberty Bell Center, Independence Hall, the Museum of the American Revolution and so many more.
