February 4, 2021 — The pandemic has left countless businesses squabbling to make ends meet – especially in the hospitality and tourism industries. Two Philadelphia hotels, and their adjacent restaurants, have made innovative changes to stay ahead of the curve — in maintaining both occupancy and staff employment — all while providing fun, safe, and luxurious en-suite experiences to travelers and local diners during this challenging time. To learn more, see below.
KimptonHotel Monaco, located in Old City, Philadelphia, and adjacent restaurant Red Owl Tavern, a neighborly yet sophisticated all-day tavern across from Independence Mall, have teamed up to offer couples a romantic indoor dining alternative in the historic heart of the city. Parties of two or four can book a Dinner With a View in a private hotel room at the Hotel Monaco, for either a three-hour time slot or overnight stay. Guests can indulge a three-course dinner courtesy of Red Owl Tavern paired with a bottle of red, white, or sparkling wine at a candlelit table with sweeping views overlooking Independence Hall, as well as a pre-paid movie from the Hotel Monaco’s selection of On-Demand movies. The three-hour Dinner With a View is priced at $199 with the option to add an overnight stay for an additional $99. See the Hotel Monaco website to check availability and book a time slot.
The Logan Hotel, overlooking scenic Logan Square in Center City, Philadelphia, and adjacent restaurant Urban Farmer, a modern American “chic” steakhouse, are offering a luxe en-suite date-night experience that includes an overnight stay in one of The Logan’s 700 sq. ft. Pennsbury Suites, specially designed to include a designated dining area with beautiful views of Logan Circle and Swann Memorial Fountain. During the stay, guests will enjoy a three-course gourmet meal courtesy of Urban Farmer Executive Chef Sonny Ingui; as well as other perks including free parking. Optional add-ons include a personal bartender that will bring a fully stocked bar cart directly to private rooms to shake, stir and pour guests’ cocktail of choice – all from a safe distance, as well as a special discounted rate for a trip to The Logan’s Underground Spa & Wellness.
This package is available every Tuesday through Saturday for $459 (prices vary on Valentine’s Day weekend). The experience must be booked at least 48 hours in advance. Book here.
