Philadelphia Travel Guide: Lokal

Posted on Jul 25, 2017 by

The birthplace of a nation is experiencing a renaissance as a top tourist destination. The first World Heritage City within the United States, Philadelphia boasts a rich history, a host of cultural sites and a new wave of beautifully conceived boutique hotels offering modern convenience and old-world charm. We find Philly fine.

Lokal

Lokal is a beautifully designed boutique hotel in the heart of Philadelphia’s Old City. Comprising six apartment-style suites with ‘invisible service’, the hotel offers – as its name implies – the opportunity to live like a local. Quaint streets and heritage sites, inviting cafes and some of the city’s best bars are on the doorstep. But with each suite featuring a kitchen and living area, it’s tempting to stay in too. Designers Jersey Ice Cream Co selected furnishings from local makers. You’ll enjoy all the perks of visiting, but also feel at home
