Sonesta Philadelphia Downtown

Art Collection

Philadelphia is a city whose appreciation for the arts is legendary.

Ironically, artistic expression is an integral part of the Sonesta experience. This is evidenced in our architecture, décor, food presentation and most notably, our world-class art collection. The Sonesta Art Collection consists of more than 7,000 contemporary paintings, sculptures, original prints and tapestries by both emerging and established artists such as Frank Stella, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Sol Lewitt, Jan Dibbets, Malcolm Morley and Carl Palazzolo. In select Sonesta locations, guided walking tours are offered to enhance the appreciation of the art and to provide background on the artists themselves.

Sonesta has been a long time believer in Contemporary Art in hotels as a way to set the hotel collection apart from other chains. Today, the 7,000 piece Sonesta Art Collection is on display throughout its hotels worldwide. Whether you are an art connoisseur or simply wish to enhance a few moments during your stay, we are hopeful our collection of art in hotels inspires you.

At Sonesta Hotel Philadelphia we are embracing and creating art throughout our upcoming re-design scheduled to commence at the end of 2013.

Our re-design will feature a unique contemporary style with a keen focus on bringing in the local culture through partnering with local artists to compliment Philadelphia’s rich cultural history. Accompanying our chic décor will be state of the art technology throughout the hotel.

The Sonesta Collection of hotels, resorts, and cruise ships offers upscale accommodations to savvy travelers in select locations throughout the world. When you travel to any of our locations, you will find we have let the outside culture in. We have taken the best kept secrets of each individual area and made them our own. Please don’t keep ours a secret!
