Museum District, Philadelphia
Experience a larger-than-life stay at The Tidewater. This notable piece of history in Philadelphia's Museum District was once a local grain distribution center. The former building was reinforced with the nation's first slip-form construction method. Today, each space inside has a fully equipped kitchen, in-suite laundry, and industrial-style windows. And the rooftop is a perfect spot for marveling at the stunning architecture. We love to cycle iconic Kelly Drive by city bike, passing the rowers on the Schuylkill River. Have your camera ready for the picturesque gardens in Fairmount Park. Or do as Rocky did and jog up the steps at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. You're also within walking distance of the local bars and restaurants dotting Center City. History, art, flavor-packed cuisines, and so much more — it's all waiting to be discovered at The Tidewater.
