In 2013, Philadelphia’s ever-growing Navy Yard added a remarkable 22 new companies, which makes last year the highest single year’s growth since the campus’ conversion from a shuttered naval base to its new life as an awesome mixed-use business campus.
Now, The Navy Yard invites its visitors to stay over with the arrival of the Courtyard Philadelphia South at The Navy Yard, the first hotel ever to open at The Navy Yard.
For those who work at The Navy Yard, residents of South Philly and visitors to the nearby Sports Complex, the new hotel will provide a much-needed lodging addition to the neighborhood, which is on track for even more development in 2014.
With its January opening, the $34 million Courtyard Philadelphia South at The Navy Yard makes a key addition to the city’s diverse hotel offerings.
Located in the historic Philadelphia Navy Yard business complex with nearby access to the city’s sports arenas, the five-story facility offers 172 rooms with executive suites, more than 1,800 square feet of meeting space, a fitness center and a trendy new restaurant and lounge with park views dubbed The Bistro – Eat. Drink. Connect.
Plus, free Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel, and GoBoard technology keeps guests up to date on weather and national news.
With this summer’s planned opening of Lo Spiedo, Marc Vetri’s new restaurant at The Navy Yard, this South Philadelphia destination might just be the next great Philadelphia staycation.
