  • The Franklin in Philadelphia, PA

    The Franklin first opened in 1925 as the Benjamin Franklin Hotel. Designed by Horace Trumbauer, architect of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the hotel was one of the largest and most lavish in Philadelphia. This historic structure, built on the site of The Continental Hotel, the setting of Abraham Lincoln's 1861 pre-inaugural speech, has hosted celebrities, royalty and world travelers for over half a century. For Philadelphians, it is a cherished landmark and favored place to celebrate life's joyous occasions. Ideally located in the Washington Square West area, convenient to the new, expanded Pennsylvania Convention Center, Jefferson and Pennsylvania Hospitals, and within walking distance to shopping, dining, public transportation and entertainment, The Franklin takes city living to the next level.
