The Terrace

Museum District, Philadelphia

With your bucket list in one hand and a cheesesteak in the other, start your Philly stay right at The Terrace. Standing proudly on Center City's principal avenue, the round tower of Benjamin Franklin Parkway keeps an eye each on City Hall and Logan Square. Drop your bags upstairs, strike up a conversation on the terrace, and squeeze in a round of pool in the game room before heading out to explore. Check off Matisse and Picasso from your list at world-renowned art institutes like the Barnes Foundation and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Check out Love Park and the historic mansions of Chestnut Street for a breath of fresh air. Spoiled for foodie choices, fix a reservation at El Vez (for mouthwatering tacos) or Oyster House (you guessed it, for delicious Atlantic oysters). Check please, then buzz through an evening of friendly pubs, elegant cocktail bars, and trendy lounges. Wherever your adventure takes you, The Terrace is the warm welcome you need at the end of a long day and the fresh start to do it all again the next morning.
