The MW2011 hotel is across from the Reading Terminal Market, home of dozens of local farmers and restaurants providing one of the most fun food experiences offered in any city (, and less than two blocks from City Hall and the main intersection of Broad and Market Streets. The old city of Philadelphia, between front (the Delaware River) and 8th Sts, is less than a mile walk. The majority of Philadelphia’s great restaurants, theaters and museums are within a mile in the other direction.

Located on Market Street, the hotel is situated within the city's central shopping district. A few steps to the West is Macy's, located the historic Wanamaker Building. Two blocks to the East is the Gallery at Market East, an indoor shopping mall and public transportation hub. All along Market Street and its side streets, you'll find convenient retail and dining options.
