BEN

You’ll work off those calories getting to this fourth floor unit, but Ben makes it all worth it. This oversized unit features large rear windows that face the rear of the building, sporting one of the best views of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

This unit features a queen sized bed, sitting area, full kitchen and island with seating for two. The full sized washer and dryer makes packing for even the longest stay convenient.

Our fully tiled bathroom showcases an oversized walk in shower, plush towels and robes, and local soaps and lotions.

It's rare to say that a hotel provided at 10+ experience, but Lokal hit every mark. The Ben room had such an amazing view. The access to all the amenities was extremely convenient. Even the reading materials were on point!

BEN’S AVAILABILITY


Searching Availability…


The just-opened six-unit boutique property in Philadelphia, offers no front desk, onsite staff, or public space. Guests check-in using an automated code and then enter their apartment. The bright and airy open spaces come courtesy of the building’s former warehouse bones, but the design is thanks to New York-based design duo the Jersey Ice Cream Co. For their first hospitality project, founders Tara Mangini and Percy Bright stayed true to their vintage-meets-handcrafted aesthetic (each kitchen features a different found portrait propped up on a shelf, for example) but infused it with a bit more minimalism than their other work. “We had to be aware that we weren’t designing for one or two owners, but for many different kinds of people,” says Mangini. Each room shares a “familial resemblance,” she adds—with trim in a rich historic marine blue and the use of real and ersatz midcentury pieces like marble-topped end tables and brass bar carts.

Thank you for a wonderful stay! Yesterday we got married nearby at the Power Plant and the hotel provided the PERFECT home base for our friends, family, and photography session. We would move in if we could.

Start to finish this was one of the best "hotel" experiences ever. Talk about personal, professional and lovely! Not only do I love that I don't have to deal with a front desk, I get to feel like I'm home away from home. Only this home is nicer than my own and I may never want to leave. When in Philly, stay Lokal - you will love it!

Rustic reclaimed wood floors and Venetian plaster walls play off contemporary brass lighting, midcentury-inspired custom furnishings, and concrete kitchenette countertops. (That cabinetry color you’re obsessing over? Seaworthy by Sherwin Williams.) Light streams in from the oversize casement windows in each and, in the bathrooms, claw foot soaking tubs and classic white subway tile lend a note of historical elegance. Philadelphia’s central corridor has no shortage of lodging options, but if you truly want to experience town like the residents do, reserve a room at Lokal, in a converted townhouse that was once a millinery for Union soldiers during the Civil War. Brave the steep ascent from street level to stay in one of the hotel’s six loft-style guest rooms, which feel like an Instagram daydream thanks to interiors by social media darlings Jersey Ice Cream Co. The spaces are designed for both short- and long-term bookings, so it makes sense that the hotel’s service has been dubbed invisible. There is no reception desk—codes for the keyless entry system are emailed to you before you arrive—and housekeeping services are available on demand for a seamless stay (though washers and dryers are tucked away in a closet in each room). Proprietors Courtney and Chad Ludeman have also curated a highly detailed guide to Old City and its surrounding neighborhoods to make exploring easy. In it, you’ll find not only the best bars and restaurants to visit, but also where to pick up artisanal spirits for a custom take on your room’s brass bar cart.

Loved! Rustic, clean & comfortable.

Our hotel room, "Will", is a very spacious loft, completely equipped, where artistry meets comfortable, and the charming location embraces the modern finishes in all the design decor. In one short sentence: Home away from home!

I spend more nights in strange beds than I do my own. I'm constantly on the road for work and wish that you owned a building like this in every city. I loved being here. I loved the style, the business model, the linens and furniture and the customization.

I loved the self-serve nature of the place. It felt so like home and let me be a responsible adult who checks myself in. But honestly the place was so cozy, beautifully appointed and exceeded my needs.

My favorite feature was how each touch radiated with your energy and reflected the care and work that went into creating Lokal.

I really like the bunk beds. Me and my sister did rock-paper-scissors to see who got the top bunk and my sister got it. But she let me be on top. At night we switched because I liked the bottom better because I got to play with the blocks. Thank you for letting us stay here.

Lokal could by definition be your 'home away from home'! It was beautifully decorated and stocked with everything you could possibly need. I was so impressed with all of the details! There was even soy milk in the fridge because I mentioned that was how I take my coffee. I really appreciated the cocktail list, the loaded iPad and how everything in the suite was sourced locally. It could not have been a better experience! I can't imagine staying anywhere else.

We loved the location. The rooms looked as they did in the photos online. Plenty of space for a family of 3 to have their own spaces. The kitchen was great and we liked that there was a little eating area and a separate living room with a comfy couch. The sky lights in both the bathroom and the queen bedroom were really great, making it much easier to wake up in the morning.

The owner truly was just a click away and was very responsive to queries and to lend a hand to accommodate my early arrival. Well done to the designers and owner. Such a great conversion in a hidden gem area of the city.

The meaning of local is all over the unit. The kitchen was fully stocked with the most delicious teas, coffee, and a full drawer with spices. I could go on and on about the simply PERFECT stay I had. Way to go, Lokal!
