Basic Accommodations at the Society Hill Hotel in Philadelphia

What’s a Society Hill Hotel Room Include?

A very small boutique hotel, the Society Hill only has 12 rooms on site. Each features air conditioning, cable television, and classic wood furniture. Some of the larger rooms also have work desks and sitting areas with chairs or a couch. The private bathrooms are small and sparse, but they do all include hair dryers. Many rooms have views of historic buildings.

What Amenities Are Available?

The Society Hill Hotel has a restaurant on the first floor with a full bar and coffee service. There is an ATM and free Wi-Fi Internet service in public areas and in all rooms. There is also a small amount of free street parking near the hotel.

What Are the Rates Like?

The average room rate at the Society Hill Hotel is around $100 per night, though some can be found for as little as $85 per night with last-minute deals. The larger Junior Suite and Superior Junior Suite average between $115 and $135 per night. There is an additional $10 fee for a roll-out bed, and a maximum of one extra bed per room.

Accessibility Concerns

This hotel does not have an elevator or wheelchair-accessible rooms.

What’s the Bottom Line?

Located in historic central Philadelphia, the Society Hill Hotel is a basic but affordable place to stay that's just a few blocks from the Delaware River and many Colonial Era attractions. While it's conveniently located and one of the more affordable options for hotels in Philadelphia, the Society Hill Hotel comes up short in comforts. The small rooms and limited amenities compare unfavorably to the nearby Sheraton Society Hill, though the on-site casual restaurant is a nice perk. Cheap but sparse, it's the most bare-bones hotel experience in the neighborhood.
