Downtown Philadelphia Hotel

The 172 rooms at The Bellevue Hotel marry the building’s grandeur—as seen in each living space’s 14-foot ceilings and ornamented detailing—with the downtown Philadelphia personality by way of vintage art and city photography.

From here, you’re ideally situated: Walk down Broad Street to tour the Victorian-era Academy of Music, or drive two miles to Old City to view the historic Liberty Bell.

How The Bellevue Hotel stands out

YOUR BEST SELF

My whole thing is finding a hotel that helps me become my best self.  For me The Bellevue Hotel does have the spirit and grandeur of another time - it makes me feel like I can become my best self.  It's a kick to stay at a place like this.

XIX - the signature hotel restaurant - deserves a look and eat there if you can.  They don't make hotel restaurants like that any more.

Of course go out and enjoy Philadelphia.  Restaurants, bars, museums, the liberty bell.  Then come back to The Bellevue Hotel.  While you're here become your best self and take that good feeling with you.

 

AVOID THE FEES

I researched the fees for the top hotels in the area.  The Bellevue Hotel is on the low end.

Free Internet access.

Valet parking is $53 per night.  Adjoining self parking for $40 per night.

No resort fee.

I don’t like any fees.  None at all.  I get it that parking in downtown is going to be costly.  If possible you’ll save money when you avoid parking a car.  Even still with our points we are paying pennies on the dollar for this great downtown hotel.

Why it’s good with points

A luxury downtown hotel is a great way to break out of the normal.  Get yourself back in your most uplifted mood with fun around the city and then recharge even more back in your luxury room.

The rooms are good sized and welcome us back to them.  Thank you very much, is what I say, happy to be here.  My mood gets a big lift from relaxing in a place like this after a day enjoying the city.

A King Room is 15,000 points per night - same with the 2 Queens Room.  Get a World of Hyatt credit card with a 50,000 point sign-up bonus – that’s three free nights.  That’s a lot of value in a luxury hotel from just one credit card.

King Room

KING ROOM

Enjoy street or atrium conservatory view with soaring 14-foot ceilings open up the space in this room, which includes a king bed and a work area within its 325–350 square feet.

 

The advice is always to have a partner also get the sign-up bonus.  That way you’ll have twice the points and get two times as many nights.

Get the World of Hyatt credit card and get on your way.

Sapphire points are worth one Hyatt point.  A Sapphire credit card is a great way to get even more Hyatt points than you can with the Hyatt Credit Card.

Once you get the sign-up bonus from your Hyatt credit card also get a Sapphire card.
