My husband and I are expecting our first baby in September, and with the pandemic, we couldn't leave the country for our Babymoon as we had hoped. We decided to do a staycation in the city and Lokal was PERFECT! It felt like home away from home and it was right in the heart of Old City, steps away from our favorite coffee shops and restaurants! We had an issue with the tv sound in out initial suite, and within minutes of informing our contact, we were moved to another, even better suite with a beautiful street view! I would definitely recommend. It is not your typical "hotel" with a front desk and room service. It's much more homely and we loved that about it!

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful stay at the Old City location. There was so much to do within walking distance (restaurants, shops, etc.) and the owners provided lots of recommendations in the field guide as well. The room was perfectly clean and we felt comfortable staying even during the pandemic. Honestly, I wish my current apartment looked like the room we stayed in! It was beautiful. It had a huge window that brought in lots of natural light. There was so much attention to detail like the iPad, the locally made soaps and coffee, the robes, the rainfall shower head--the list goes on. We had a chance to communicate with Courtney and Chad, two of the owners, and they were so kind and responsive. I can't wait to stay at another Lokal location.

Everything about my stay at Lokal Hotel was top notch! From the smooth check in to the amenities and beautiful designed light filled room. I really enjoyed my visit to Philly but the Lokal team went above and beyond to make this stay perfect and memorable. The room was clean. The bed was comfortable and the linens so soft. The kitchen space was a nice touch and plenty of space to store, cook and clean. The shower was huge and they provide all amenities. Old City area is a nice area and convenient to other Philly attractions. Thank you so much for a great stay!
