Stamp of Approval

Create a Notable Moment

Leave Your Mark

Our iconic 1926 building, once where the heart of city government beat, a Notary’s stamp was given to signify the start of a marriage, a business or new journey. Now stands a destination with a different brand of service, but with an enduring mission of creating notable moments for its guests. With the echoes of history reverberating through these hallowed halls, The Notary Hotel encourages visitors to leave their mark on the city of Brotherly Love.

Architecture

Civic Roots With a Modern Aesthetic

The Notary Hotel’s exemplary design draws on the building’s civic roots, while also seamlessly introducing a fresh modern aesthetic. The hotel has retained the former City Hall Annex’s rich historic ambiance, with a combination of original finishes and stylish upgrades, including marble floors, chandeliers, coffered plaster ceilings, and decorative bronze molding. The lobby brings together elements of local history and culture, thanks to a collection of antique typewriters alongside pedestaled bronze art sculptures of vintage hats and a large scale neon LOVE sign, a nod to the city’s iconic LOVE Statue. The focus on Philly (past, present and future) is completed by a curated lobby soundtrack that draws from Philadelphia's storied musical heritage, with tunes ranging from classic hard bop jazz to family friendly hip hop. This charmed historic building stands as a fine example of Classical Revival Civic Architecture.
