W Philadelphia

Sleek Tower

What it is

A stylish 295 room skyscraper with a restaurant inspired by 1960s Rome, a wellness-oriented spa, two bars, and an outdoor pool heated all year.

What it isn't

Cold and urban. The designers have tried hard to create whimsical moments at every turn; don’t miss the leafy Secret Garden on the roof overlooking Philly’s iconic City Hall.

What we think

Anyone who considers Philadelphia a “second city” compared to its northern neighbor, New York, might think twice after a stay at W. The designers behind this soaring retreat have pulled out all the stops to create a modern yet memorable hideaway, here. Floor to ceiling windows? Check. Graphic and design-y touches? Every room looks like it was torn from the pages of Elle Decor. Plus, every option is ginormous, starting with the 402 square foot Wonderful rooms on up to the penthouse Extreme Wow Suite (it really is “wow,” with two bedrooms, a separate living space, balcony, and sprawling 2,200 square foot floor plan). Did we mention the in-room foosball table and egg shaped soaking tub that looks out on the city?

You're here because

The hotel has a 24-hour gym complete with personal trainers and group runs through the neighborhood.

The Moment

When they called their spa Away, they weren’t kidding. This feels like a hush-hush hideaway thanks to the serene spaces and otherworldly treatments. Your indulgence today? A Luminous LED facial and Detox Massage. Bliss.
