Hotel History

Hotel History

A city landmark for more than a century, The Bellevue Hotel has earned its place as the only  Philadelphia hotel on the National Register of Historic Places. Built in 1886, and opened in 1904 to handle overflow from the original, smaller Bellevue across the street, it was designed from the start to stand as one of the world’s most magnificent hotels. Owner George C. Boldt, known as the “Father of the Modern American Hotel,” envisioned a towering French Renaissance building to be called The Bellevue-Stratford—a vision realized by architects G.W. and W.D. Hewitt.

Pet-friendly

Pet-friendly

Bring up to two dogs along for your Philadelphia getaway when you stay at The Bellevue Hotel. Pick up a “Dog on Vacation” sign at the front desk to hang on your doorknob for the duration of your stay, so we know your canine companions are in tow. If your pups want to see more of the city, take them to the dog run at Seger Park, a green space about a half-mile from our hotel.

Let us know if you’ll be traveling with pets at least three days prior to your arrival. Dogs can tour our halls on leashes, but we ask that they stay off the 19th floor and Ballroom Level. 

Fees

A cleaning fee of $100 is added for stays of up to six nights, with an additional deep-cleaning fee of $100 for seven to thirty nights. If you’re planning an extended stay, please call us at (215) 893-1234.

Weight Limits

We ask that you check in with dogs weighing under 50 pounds individually or 75 pounds combined.
