A highly controversial city and one that has deep historical importance, Philadelphia is probably the most famous city in Pennsylvania. It’s here, between the walls of Independence Hall, that both the Declaration of Independence and - 10 years later - the US Constitution were discussed and adopted. You might also know Philadelphia for its colourful and politically-charged street art, its tasty cheesesteaks and its museum of art. The latter is a must-visit spot for Rocky Balboa’s fans, the fictional character created and interpreted by Sylvester Stallone. In a famous scene, Stallone runs up the long flight of stairs that leads to the museum. You will need two to three days to fully enjoy and appreciate the city, to try all the cheesesteaks and to hunt down all the graffitis. So, check out the five best 2-bedroom hotels in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, for a cool stay.

Visit Philadelphia in style
Pennsylvania’s most famous city, Philadelphia, swings between its glorious past and its troubling present. There’s a lot to explore and discover in Philly as it is affectionately known. Despite its celebrity status, Philly isn’t Pennsylvania’s capital as one might think. It is however one of the most important cities in the state and in the country that’s made famous by its iconic buildings, historical past and many movies. The city, in fact, probably deserves two to three days to be fully visited and why not do it in style? Book a two-bedroom suite and let the hotel staff take good care of you.
