The Arco

4.1/5 Superb ()

Midtown Village, Philadelphia

A place that balances historic charm with contemporary conveniences, The Arco hits the spot. Colonial architecture with a brick exterior. And a toasty fireplace surrounded by modern lobby artwork. Each space includes rustic hardwood floors, paned windows, and bathrooms with French countryside wallpaper. The Chromecast-enabled television can stream anything from historical dramas to your favorite rom-com. You'll be in the heart of Philly, and Midtown Village provides ample activities. Walk around South 13th Street for an array of bars and international cuisine — the bao buns from DanDan will leave your tastebuds happy. There's also the tranquil park of Rittenhouse Square. By the time it's checkout, you'll be ready to book your next stay at The Arco.
