Hilton Garden Inn Philadelphia Center City completed renovations to the 10th floor meeting space and the Garden Grille & Bar.

Upgrades include new televisions and furniture on the 10th floor. An ADA motorized lift was installed in the Garden Grille & Bar and will lower one end of the bar to accommodate all guests. The renovations were designed to give the hotel a modern, contemporary look.

Renovations in the 3,400-square-foot 10th floor meeting space also included new window treatments, new carpet and marble countertops.

The hotel is located across the street from the Pennsylvania Convention Center and next door to the Historic Reading Terminal Market. More than 100 restaurants are in walking distance, along with historical attractions, theaters, museums and shopping.

“We’re thrilled with all of the recent changes taking place here at Hilton Garden Inn Philadelphia Center City,” said Jason Bartschi, Director of Sales for the property. “The new spaces are outstanding, and we’re proud to bring a truly unique meeting and dining experience to the Philadelphia area.”

The renovations were made with the intent to take this top-rated hotel to the next level.

Hilton Garden Inn Philadelphia Center City is managed by GF Management.

As a new mother, I’m right there with you and need just as much help developing a healthy work-life balance. In my experiences working in events, I’ve found the following to be helpful ways to care for my mental health, despite being in a stressful profession:
