Most visitors to the city of Philadelphia end up staying just a short amount of time – long enough to do business, sightsee, pop in on family or visit friends. Yet what if you found yourself in need of a place for an extended period of time, say 30 days or longer? Stays of this length require a different type of lodging, something with more of an apartment feel and homey atmosphere.
Enter Roost Apartment Hotel, located in the Packard Building at 15th and Walnut Streets in Center City. Roost offers just such a lodging experience. Visitors to the city who have the need to remain here for longer than a month can now come home to more of an apartment, yet give up none of the amenities of a boutique hotel.
It's truly the best of both worlds.

Roost can also accommodate shorter stays, if need be, depending on availability. But their main focus is on accommodating the folks who, for business or pleasure, need to remain in the city for an extended stay. These folks now have the option of lodging in one of Roost's contemporary, well-equipped studio, one- or two-bedroom units.
Residents here enjoy a wonderfully renovated space, with large, modern kitchens; hardwood floors; attractive marble bathrooms; and embellished plaster ceilings. The decor here is mostly hand selected, and many items are local to the area.
All of these things come together to create a fantastic home base for any traveler or displaced homeowner, while also giving them a more homey feel than a hotel room can offer for the duration of their stay.
What advantages can one expect to find here to make the apartment-like experience all that much better? Roost offers housekeeping services, which many apartment-dwellers would love to have. You'll also be able to take advantage of free WiFi, so that your workload or personal interests never take a backseat.
Fitness doesn't go unrecognized, either, as Roost houses a fitness center for residents to use. Front desk services are available 24 hours a day, as well.

What else is terrific about Roost Apartment Hotel? It's super location right in the heart of Center City allows residents here to be close to the action. Restaurants, bars, shopping, entertainment, public transportation and other local attractions are just steps away.
Many businesses are located right in town, allowing for easy access should you need to frequent one or more of them or need services such as faxing, printing or other communications.
This superior new lodging option takes the basic hotel room and makes it that much better for the visitor who knows they'll be in Philadelphia for a good length of time.
Coming home to a place that feels like home, at least for a little while, can make a real difference for someone facing an extended stay.
