Boutique Hotel Find: Lokal Hotel Philadelphia

Philly’s Old City neighborhood just got a new design-led boutique hotel that not only resembles the pages of Kinfolk Magazine, but also offers what the owners are calling “invisible service.” Essentially, this means that the hotel anticipates the guest’s needs before they arrive. For us, that meant asking us questions like “light or medium roast” and then ensuring our desired style of coffee magically appeared on arrival. Armed with a key code to the apartment and an impressively curated city concierge that came in the form of a binder, a stay at Lokal Hotel feels more like a visit to your Philadelphian pied-à-terre complete with all your creature comforts, than it does a standard hotel stay.

Jersey Ice Cream Co., the design minds behind Lokal Hotel have carefully crafted a Scandinavian mid-century meets industrial vibe in the six apartment suites. Guests can enjoy the fruits of what must have involved plenty of trips to flea markets and garage sales to hand-pick vintage gems like the leather chairs, rugs and magazine stands thoughtfully placed around the suites. Not forgotten are a host of modern creature comforts like a Sonos sound system, Apple TV, luxurious bed sheets from Parachute, an enormous rain shower complete with locally sourced Duross and Langel products, plus a bar cart with everything you need (including a recipe book!) to host cocktail hour at the apartment. Should you need to cook, a fully stocked pantry should get you on the way to hosting a dinner party with your new local friends following that cocktail hour.

A stay at Lokal Hotel offers guests the warm, collected design focus of a well loved home alongside the inspiration to go out and explore the charms of Philadelphia like a local.
