Exploring Philadelphia at a Distance

Philadelphia is currently in the initial green phase of the Safer at Home re-opening plan. Though this paves the way for a different kind of hotel stay, hospitality remains at the heart of what we do. The Windsor Suites remains committed to connecting our guests to the authentic local experiences of Philadelphia, while maintaining a healthy and safe travel experience.
