The Vibe: Feel like a local with no staff.
The Area: Among the trendy shops, bar and eateries of Philadelphia’s historic Old City.
The DNA: Lokal Hotel prides itself on what they bill as ‘invisible service’: no check-in desk, unstaffed; instead curated in-room guidebooks that offer dinner, drink and shopping recommendations from those in the know, though a grocery delivery service is available.
Suite-Me-Up: The six spacious loft-style, Scandinavian mid-century meets industrial vibe, apartments with roughly-plastered walls and salvage woods have hand-pick vintage gems like leather chairs, rugs and magazine stands. Facilities include air conditioning, full kitchens, washer/dryers, a coffee machine with locally roasted coffee, Sonos sound systems, Apple TVs, luxurious beds from Parachute and a bar cart with everything you need (including recipe book).
