About Our Charming Boutique Hotel in Philadelphia
Stay in the Historic Birthplace of America
Immerse yourself in history in the Birthplace of America when you stay at Penn’s View Hotel, a Penn’s Landing hotel nestled on the Delaware River. This historic boutique hotel in Philadelphia was built in 1828 and has enjoyed many incarnations, beginning as a shipping warehouse serving Philadelphia’s docks throughout the 19th Century.
As trade on the Delaware River dwindled and the city grew, the Penn’s View building evolved and enjoyed a new life as a hardware store, then a coffee house throughout the 1950’s. Finally, the building was purchased by the Sena family in 1989 and was transformed into one the most luxurious Old City, Philadelphia hotels. After careful planning and renovations were complete the Penn’s View Hotel opened its doors to guests in the early 1990’s with just 27 guest rooms, one dining room, and a bar. Over the years innumerable guests have enjoyed our boutique hotel in Philadelphia, and over time the hotel has expanded to encompass three buildings that include 49 guest rooms, two suites and a delectable on-site restaurant Panorama and Wine Bar.
