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.

 

The return of familiarization trips is one key sign that things are beginning to return to normal in our industry. In mid-June the Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau (PHLCVB) hosted more than 40 meeting and convention planners for a three-day familiarity tour. Their stay included a visit to the Franklin Institute and world premiere exhibit Harry Potter: The Exhibition, evening reception on the Rocky Steps, and a watch party as Philadelphia was announced as a host city for the FIFA World Cup 2026.

 

If you’ve hosted meetings at the Javits Center or other venues in Manhattan, you know that there’s more than enough to do in the borough to easily keep attendees busy for days.

 

Pittsburgh may be known as The Steel City, but it has plenty of greenery, too, and opportunities for groups attending meetings here to get out in nature. The Pittsburgh CVB, which has the tagline “Only in Pittsburgh,” has proudly shared the news that the Great Allegany Passage was named a winner in the 2022 USA Today “10Best Readers’ Choice” travel award contest for “best recreational trail.”
