The Philadelphia Waterfront, “the perfect location to be a part of it all”,  is home to an exciting array of activities that beckon locals and visitors alike. Our hotel, Hilton Penn's Landing, is located right next to all the action.

The excitement kicks off this summer in Philadelphia with a number of activities and attractions available near the waterfront. Guests can quickly discover the highlights of the city by boarding the unique amphibian vehicle for Duck Tours Philadelphia, which ventures across land and sea. To the delight of beer lovers, the city hosts the Visit Philly Beer Garden Series from the end of May through the first week of September, offering you the chance to sample craft beers, indulge in local foods and participate in fun-filled events held at various city locations.

Throughout summer, Festival Pier, Great Plaza and the the BB&T Pavilion are the destinations where guests find an assortment of live concerts presented by well-known bands. Additional musical entertainment takes place when the Blue Cross RiverRink Summerfest and Spruce Street Harbor Park combine efforts to offer the Waterfront Sessions Concerts. Guests can also stroll around the Art Star Craft Bazaar or attend one of the many ethnic festivals presented by the PECO Multicultural Series.

In the evenings, guests might enjoy watching the fireworks at Penn's Landing while relaxing in our exquisite indoor pool area, or taking in the summer breezes relaxing on our outside deck just off the pool area. Don’f forget to check out our restaurant, Keating’s Rope & Anchor, Bar + Kitchen, where you can enjoy another fabuous outdoor patio for food and spirits overlooking the waterfront with live entertainment Friday through Sunday.  You can also venture to the Great Plaza and see movies presented under the stars. The Friday Smooth Jazz Summer Nights are offered throughout August, and visiting a local waterfront brewery and sampling English-inspired ales is always a fun way to pass the evening. Cap off the night with dinner and drinks aboard a historic tall ship while gazing at the city skyline. Our hotel allows guests to be part of the action, while still having a relaxing place to retreat to at the end of the day.
