A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review

• The atmosphere will add a posh, urban vibe to your wedding. Reflecting the grandeur of the 1920s, this historic hotel’s magnificent architecture serves as a stunning backdrop for wedding photos and has been showcased in an episode of “My Fair Wedding”® with David Tutera.

• It’s a great home base for family-friendly wedding weekend activities. Located right in the heart of the Philadelphia Historic District, the hotel is close to some of the nation’s most important historical sites.

• Wedding planning assistance is complimentary. A wedding planner will work with you to develop an overall vision for your wedding, and help you execute each detail.
