The Westin Philadelphia has completed a multi-million dollar renovation project that has touched all areas of the property, including its guest rooms, public spaces, and dining experiences. In addition, guests can look forward to “enhanced amenities and sustainability initiatives,” according to the hotel.

Here’s what you can expect from the newly transformed Westin Philadelphia hotel.

A Philly Mainstay Transformed

Located in the heart of the nation’s sixth-largest city in Rittenhouse Square, The Westin Philadelphia has taken the wraps off of its new look.

“This renovation has allowed us to further elevate our standard of luxury through thoughtful design, amenities, and experiences that meet the needs of the modern leisure and business traveler,” said Matt Nelson, General Manager of The Westin Philadelphia.

The first thing guests will notice is the property’s new look, designed by Bill Rooney Studio Inc. The goal was to blend the building’s historical architectural details with a modern design that 21st-century travelers expect from a high-end hotel.

This was achieved through the use of neutral colors like wheat, gray, and white combined with bold brass accents, “hand-selected graphic art and organic leaf-patterned carpet in the property’s public spaces that serves as a nod to Pennsylvania founder William Penn’s passion for biophilic design,” according to a press release.

All of the hotel’s 294 guest rooms and 19 suites boast a new look, though the renovation wasn’t limited to the rooms. The property’s more than 15,000 square feet of meeting and event space got a thorough upgrade, cementing it as a top option for hosting events of all sizes.

The hotel’s signature dining outlet, Lea Restaurant & Bar, also received a refresh. The restaurant boasts seasonal, locally-sourced ingredients paired with inventive cocktails served in an elegant space with a spacious marble-clad bar, a variety of chic seating options, and hand-painted artwork, all accented with brass and wood trim pieces.

How to Book

The Westin Philadelphia participates in the Marriott Bonvoy loyalty program, which means members can earn and redeem points for stays.

If you’re interested in staying at this newly renovated property, you can book a guest room from around $175 per night. Alternatively, you can redeem 40,000+ Marriott Bonvoy points per night.

Luckily, it’s relatively easy to earn Marriott Bonvoy pointsMarriott offers several co-branded credit cards, all of which offer solid welcome bonus offers. You can also transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards and American Express Membership Rewards points at a 1:1 ratio.

To celebrate the property’s new look, the hotel is offering some specials for bookings. Through August 29, 2023, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn 5,000 bonus points for stays at the Westin Philadelphia when booked through this link.

Additionally, there are discounts and extra perks when groups book at least 20 room nights.
