Historic Landmark For Women’s Empowerment Will Transform Into the Guild House Hotel, Luxury Boutique Accommodations In the Heart of Philadelphia

Guild House hotel, Philadelphia’s newest luxury boutique hotel, will open its doors this March in celebration of Women’s History Month. Located in the National Historic Landmark that once served as home to one of the nation’s leading women’s empowerment organizations, Guild House Hotel will honor its roots by celebrating the New Century Guild’s legacy, supporting female & minority-owned business owners and furthering the organizations’ traditions. Founded in 1882, the forward-thinking,independent female abolitionists, suffragists, artists, and writers behind The New Century Guild used this building as a hub for education, entertainment, and activism in the early 20th century. The Guild House hotel seeks to celebrate its legacy by connecting the past with the present to create an intriguing and inspiring experience for guests. This can be seen in everything from the 12 suites inspired by the iconic female leaders of the New Century Guild, and the elegant interior design to the amenities provided by women- and minority-owned businesses, and the sense of community created at the hotel intended to honor the historic traditions and women’s empowerment initiatives set forth here nearly 140 years ago. “Every aspect of the Guild House hotel tells the remarkable story of its historic past in a way that feels fresh, modern and relevant, offering guests an unforgettable experience,” said Brennan Tomasetti, co-owner of the Guild House Hotel. “We’re proud of our connection to these women and the passion for social progress, justice and equity that the New Century Guild embodied for more than a century. We strive to honor their legacy by nurturing our own inclusive, inspiring community.” To learn more about the Guild House hotel, visit their website at guildhousehotel.com, or on social media @guildhousehotel on Instagram or Facebook.
