The Hotel is nestled between the most historic square mile in America, located in the heart of Independence National Park with spectacular views of the vibrant neighborhood, the Park, and the expanding waterfront. The completion of the 20-million-dollar renovation and subsequent brand conversion to Renaissance Downtown has greatly upgraded the hotels presence within the community.
Newly redesigned Franklin Social is an all-day American café concept in Old City, Philadelphia. Situated at the corner of 4th and Chestnut Streets and overlooking Independence Park. Join us for craft beer from around the corner, wine from across the world and delicious American eats. The restaurant also offers guests seasonal al fresco seating, featuring ambient lighting, ample greenery, and lovely views of the gardens surrounding the historic Second Bank of the United States. Opening in conjunction with Franklin Social will be the Franklin Lounge, a relaxed cocktail bar also offering a variety of beers and international wines. With a vast selection of new and familiar flavors, Franklin Social will offer something for everyone. Franklin Social’s convenient coffee and juice counter will offer the local neighborhood all-day, grab-and-go offerings including locally sourced pastries, fresh juices and smoothies, and a bespoke coffee and espresso program from Philadelphia’s own La Colombe.
