The Westin Philadelphia
Philadelphia Weddings Westin Philadelphia Style
Neil – I cannot express in words how wonderful our weekend was. On behalf of Emily, Jared, and Woody and I – I want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Nothing could have been better. The accommodations, food and service were more than we could have dreamed of. Everyone raved about the room, the food etc.
Working with you was a true pleasure. Your responsiveness to our questions throughout the whole process was impeccable.
I will certainly recommend more couples to the Westin.

Westin is a comfortable upscale property with a good central location, within easy walking to public transportation (SEPTA) & tour bus access (PHASH and Big Bus) to local attractions.
Westin's best Philadelphia asset, in my opinion, is their incredible concierge, Geraldine "Gerry" down at the concierge desk. Professional, knowledgeable, courteous, bubbly and fun, this delightful woman became a fantastic resource to help schedule several days of intensive sightseeing, always mindful of my wish to walk and take public transportation rather than spend a lot of money on rental cars or cab fairs. She had a huge credenza full of well-organized brochures, with seemingly everything a tourist could possibly want to know, right on hand--- For a typical day exploring Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell and the colonial historical museums, she had great recommendations on how to time visits to avoid long lines. For a day out to Warminster to see relatives, she pulled a pre-printed train schedule up immediately. For visits to the PMA, Barnes and Rodin museum, she helped us pace things out so we'd have more time to enjoy the art. When I wanted to check out the Wanamaker Organ at Macy's, she had the concert times within minutes.
Since it was a very busy weekend at the hotel, we heard her work with a wide variety of guests on things like tour options, dining, used book stores, walking times, boat tours, kid-friendly attractions, good values, etc. She always took time to focus on each customer, listening carefully to see what folks were interested in, then tailoring options just for them.
So, whether you stay at the Westin for one packed day or a long relaxed stay, start your plans with Gerry. She'll get you where you need to go.
