More About Hotels near Garden Court, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania...

The Garden Court Historic District

The City of Philadelphia created the Garden Court Historic District in 1984 to protect the neighborhood's many early 20th century homes. Designed by Philadelphia native Clarence Siegal, Garden Court was one of the first neighborhoods in Philadelphia built to accommodate automobiles. Although the area has gone through many modernizations and changes in the past hundred years, many of the historic structures still remain. 

Garden Court is one of the smallest neighborhoods in Philadelphia and offers little in the way of tourist activities, aside from wandering the leafy urban streets and admiring the architecture. There is a small row of shops around 48th and Spruce, but otherwise the area is entirely residential. The small Ben Barkan park has public tennis courts.

Stay in the Neighboring University District

There are no hotels in Garden Court proper, so visitors who want to stay close by will need to look to the neighboring University District. A short walk away, the University District is home to several of Philadelphia's most prominent schools, including the University of Pennsylvania. Unlike Garden Court, the area is rich with activity, shops, and colorful restaurants. The Garden Court neighborhood is not served by the SEPTA subway system, but the University District is, so visitors staying there will have a direct way to get downtown. 

Budget Options Near Garden Court

The University District boasts several large hotels. Try to avoid booking during graduation and other school events to get the best rates. Excellent area hotels include the Sheraton Philadelphia University City Hotel and The Inn at Penn: A Hilton Hotel. Homewood Suites by Hilton University is closest to Garden Court and offers apartment style suites, which are ideal for families.

Another option is a small, intimate bed and breakfast. There are several in the neighborhoods surrounding Garden Court. The Castle Bed and Breakfast and Guest Suite at the Pink House are both very close, although their rates may be higher than larger nearby hotels.

Alternatively, there are several Airbnb options available in Garden Court. These are mostly private rooms rather than entire apartments, but they do offer visitors the chance to stay in an authentic 1920's house.
