Lokal is a 6-unit boutique hotel with a focus on invisible service in Old City. Featuring six apartment-style suites, Lokal will offer guests an authentic Philadelphia experience and an escape that feels like home. The team behind the project will anticipate needs and create a high level of behind-the-scenes service. In doing away with many of the trappings of a traditional hotel, Lokal seeks to provide a unique connection with the city without sacrificing the comfort and care travelers expect.
Named after the great William Penn, who founded Pennsylvania, this studio apartment is on the second floor of our historical walk up building, and overlooks the quaint shoppes of 3rd Street.
This unit features a queen sized bed, sitting area, full kitchen and island with seating for two. The full sized washer and dryer makes packing for even the longest stay convenient.
Our fully tiled bathroom showcases an oversized walk in shower, plush towels and robes, and local soaps and lotions.
You are big boys and girls. You know what you’re doing. We trust you. That’s why we know you will love our invisible service. That means no front desk. No onsite staff. We do you one better. Using all of the fanciest technology, we give you the best service, right at your fingertips. From automated coded check-in, to in room Ipads with multiple service driven apps, our staff and service are never more than a screen touch away. And if you decide you want to kick it old school, we can do that too. Let us know ahead of time and we can send a real life person down to check you in and answer any questions or address any needs.

Lokal Hotel was founded by Chad & Courtney Ludeman to enable others to feel like a local when visiting Philly. They manage this themselves and want you to know that you are traveling the way they like to. Skipping the tourist traps while hitting up the hidden gems only the locals know about. They like to travel with their kids to show them new experiences and cultures. They like a well designed room they can mix a drink in and enjoy each others' company in.
