Center City is the center of the action
Why stay out in the suburbs when you can book a place within walking distance of all the Philadelphia highlights? When it comes to location, it doesn’t get much better than the Avenue of the Arts in Philly’s Center City neighborhood. Stay Alfred at Griffin Center City is situated mere steps from historic sites like Philadelphia City Hall and modern attractions like the One Liberty Observation Deck. Often called “the Gayborhood” by locals, this neighborhood is packed with culture and character.
Within a few blocks, you can explore the deliciousness that is Reading Terminal Market, catch a show at Walnut Street Theatre (which just so happens to be the oldest playhouse in the country!), enjoy the outdoors at Rittenhouse Square, and snap a pic with the iconic LOVE Statue at JFK Plaza. Also within walking distance are the Academy of Music, Pennsylvania Convention Center, and a slew of great restaurants and vibrant nightlife. Some of our favorite eats in the area include Green Eggs Cafe for breakfast, El Vez for Mexican fare, and McGillin's Olde Ale House for a cold beer.
No trip to Philadelphia is complete without a visit to the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, and the famous Independence National Historical Park is just a 15-minute walk from your front door. After marveling at the park’s legendary monuments, don’t miss the Benjamin Franklin Museum, Independence Seaport Museum, and the country’s longest-inhabited street, Elfreth’s Alley.
