Benjamin Franklin was one of the most famous residents of Philadelphia – that is, until Big Bird moved in. As one of the only two Sesame Street-dedicated theme parks in the USA, Sesame Place is a must-visit for fans of the show. Here are the best hotels around Sesame Place, now bookable with Culture Trip.

The Brick Hotel

Hotel

Built in 1763, The Brick Hotel has a storied past that includes a visit by George Washington. Though the clientele no longer includes Revolutionary War heroes, you can still savor the Victorian-era architecture and bar stocked full of old spirits. Want to build a brick hotel of your own? The LEGOLAND Discovery Center is 30 minutes away and can provide you with the colorful bricks to build the mini-motel of your dreams.

Temperance House

The Temperance House is a bit of a misnomer, but it’s no less comfortable or convenient of a stay. Suites overlooking State Street hang above a seafood restaurant overflowing with classic crab cakes, Nova Scotia salmon and lightly breaded fresh catches. You’ll immediately spot the Tap and Barrel Tavern, which may seem to stick out like a sore thumb at the Temperance House. Just know that it’s not the only room full of spirits, as you may discover when you sleep in the Haunted Porter’s Room.

Courtyard by Marriott Philadelphia Langhorne

At Courtyard by Marriott, the letter “C” stands for more than just comfort. It’s close to Sesame Place and a Parx Casino if you want to play craps or cards. Your suite has in-room coffee available if you’re trying to stay caffeinated before calming down with evening cocktails at The Bistro. There’s also a fitness center for your daily cardio session, a pool to keep you cool and a communal fire pit, where you can cozy up with your BFFs.

Residence Inn by Marriott Philadelphia Langhorne

Traveling with your best friend and his rubber ducky? You’ll both have your own space to relax in the two-bedroom suite at Residence Inn by Marriott. These suites have two separate tubs, each filled with water and nice fluffy suds, so bathtime can be as fun as you prefer. Sadly, though the hotel is not pet-friendly; rubber ducky can come, but your pet pigeon Bernice has to find a different coop to cuddle in.

Sheraton Bucks County Langhorne

It’s hard to be a grouch when you spend a night at the Sheraton in Bucks County. Even the traditional rooms – long, rectangular and without an aluminum wall in sight – are spacious, comfortable and exceptionally clean. The suites do have blackout curtains, so it’s easy to put a lid on an unnecessarily early wake-up. The pros: free wifi, a sparkling pool and a 24-hour fitness center. The cons: if you love trash, we regret to inform you that housekeeping will empty every can.

Springhill Suites by Marriott Philadelphia Langhorne

If you happen to be a cute, furry little friend with a bright red cap, you can fly from Springhill Suites to Sesame Place in an instant. Don’t worry; if you’re not Super Grover, you can simply walk across the connected walkway and get into the park. Snag a grab-and-go breakfast on your way or stop at Captain Ernie’s Bistro for chicken wraps and pizza slices that even picky eaters will love.

Springhill Suites by Marriott Ewing Princeton South

Springhill Suites by Marriott is just over the Delaware River in New Jersey, keeping you within 15 minutes of Sesame Place and not much farther from Six Flags Great Adventure. The ABCs of amenities are all here, including a pool, a fitness center and free breakfasts. This hotel is pet-friendly, though you may want to double-check if that’s limited to dogs and cats before you invite Mr Snuffleupagus to share a double queen room with you.

Element Ewing Princeton

The Element in Ewing Township is an ideal stay for single adults and small families. The little ones will dig free waffles and eggs at breakfast, while the adults love wine, beer and cheese at the evening reception. Want to play a fun game while you drive? Count the number of golf courses you can plan to hit next time you bring the kids up to Sesame Place. One, two, three, four.

Homewood Suites by Hilton has a two-bedroom suite that can sleep eight, so everyone from the Street can join your adventure. Elmo will gladly share the sofa bed with anyone who loves to snuggle, and Julia will love plugging her tunes into the MP3 compatible clock radio. There is a full-sized refrigerator in the fully equipped kitchen, though we have a feeling a certain Cookie Monster will fill it with milk. There’s only one king bed, so, maybe, let Big Bird claim the extra leg length.

River House at Odette's

Fans of smooth whiskey and riverside bliss will find a home in the River House at Odette’s. It’s way too easy to slip into complacency in the Bridge & Bow Suites. Start every morning with coffee on the balcony, cook any meal you wish in the fully equipped kitchen, and end each night with drinks by the fireplace.

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel – and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.

Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.

Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way. That is why we have intensively curated a collection of premium small-group trips as an invitation to meet and connect with new, like-minded people for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in three categories: Epic Trips, Mini Trips and Sailing Trips. Our Trips are suitable for both solo travellers and friends who want to explore the world together.

Epic Trips are deeply immersive 8 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and enough down time to really relax and soak it all in. Our Mini Trips are small and mighty - they squeeze all the excitement and authenticity of our longer Epic Trips into a manageable 3-5 day window. Our Sailing Trips invite you to spend a week experiencing the best of the sea and land in the Caribbean and the Mediterranean.

We know that many of you worry about the environmental impact of travel and are looking for ways of expanding horizons in ways that do minimal harm – and may even bring benefits. We are committed to go as far as possible in curating our trips with care for the planet. That is why all of our trips are flightless in destination, fully carbon offset - and we have ambitious plans to be net zero in the very near future.
