Why We Like This Place

  • This sophisticated French boutique hotel in the heart of Philadelphia offers luxurious accommodations and European style, with artwork inspired by Rodin and timelessly elegant Beaux-Arts architectural details.
  • The grand Paris Ballroom is intimately lit and especially suitable for a live band. It’s also easily customizable—you’ll have your choice of Chiavari chairs with accompanying covers and sashes, table overlays, and menu cards.
  • You’ll enjoy a complimentary bridal suite for the wedding party, stocked with chocolate-covered strawberries, sparkling wine, and bath amenities. In addition, rooms for the parents of both the bride and the groom are included.
