We like design. We like feeling at home. We like doing what the locals do when we travel. We don’t like to be bothered. But we do like curated, expert advice. We also like good coffee and nice towels, sheets and beds.
As a husband and wife team, we have always loved to travel. But as design-centric people, it is always a disappointment to arrive at our destination and find a hotel with the same beige walls and maroon paisley bedspread. It makes us want to tweet #SAD!
So we decided to create a place where we would love to stay. We wanted a place that allowed our guests to experience the real Philadelphia, the Philly we know and love. And so we created Lokal – a design driven hotel that is highly curated to the local Philadelphian experience. Because everyone should be allowed to vacation in an environment that makes them feel happy. And everyone should love Philly as much as we do.
What was the inspiration behind Lokal?
The inspiration for the Lokal concept came from how we like to travel. We want to stay in design-driven boutique hotels in the heart of residential neighborhoods and feel like we are staying like a local, rather than a tourist.
Why Invisible Service?
The concept of “Invisible Service” came not only from a necessity to make a tiny hotel function, but to enable guests to visit with just the right amount of interaction from us. Everything you will need is loaded into your rooms just like at home and we are a call or text away if you need additional service.
Why choose Old City for Lokal’s first location?
The Historic District of Old City is the perfect spot for our first location. It’s in the heart of the boutique shopping, gallery and cafe section of Old City where no other hotel can fit. You are literally living where the locals live during your stay with us.
