It’s always exciting to read a new hotel is coming to a city near you. With a new hotel comes new eateries, event spaces and options for activities. Recently, I read about The Guild House Hotel coming to Philadelphia, located in a historic city landmark. As I read more about the hotel’s details, I got even more excited to check out what is sure to be the city’s new hot spot.
The Guild House Hotel opens June 6, and reservations are now available. The Guild House Hotel will be housed in a historic landmark, The New Century Guild, previously used as a hub for education, entertainment and activism in the early 20th century.
Founded in 1882, forward-thinking, independent female abolitionists, suffragists, artists and writers used the building. The Guild House Hotel will celebrate that legacy, including in the 12 suites inspired by the iconic female leaders from that time and amenities provided by women- and minority-owned businesses. June 6 also marks the day the original New Century Guild opened its doors 115 years ago.
Coffee will be provided by Sip & Sonder, a Black women-owned entrepreneurial and creative hub; the tea will come from Blushing Wren, a Philadelphia-based, woman-owned business sourcing locally and sustainably grown ingredients. Fork & Melon, a clean line of skin and body care products, will craft the bath amenities.
Add this hotel to your list of properties to consider when you book a trip to the City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection — history is around every corner of the city!

Monticello, New York, population 6,400, is an old Catskill town in Sullivan County that thrived from the 1950s–70s, with hundreds of country resorts. Although the town lies just a two-hour drive from Manhattan's cultural attractions, Monticello always seemed light years away in terms of cultural ambiance.
