Dining

The Sonesta Philadelphia has two in-house restaurants, the Art Bar and Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, both located on the lobby level. Located in the heart of Center City, the Sonesta Philadelphia is steps away from many of the best restaurants Rittenhouse Square has to offer. Choose from a variety of top rated restaurants from fine dining to local Philly favorites. The great thing about staying at Sonesta Philadelphia, guests are close to everything. Nearby neighborhood enclaves contain great dining, shopping and entertainment, all very close together, so hopping around to a multitude of hotspots can be accomplished by walking, or at the most, by a very short cab ride.

Ask our Front Desk or Concierge staff for information about our local restaurants. If you ask us where to find a great Philly Cheesesteak, we know exactly where to find that too!
