In short and long term investment plans, Braemar Hotels & Resorts is focused on investing in luxury hotels and resorts. Braemar Hotels & Resorts made a significant step on this road with an investment of $20 million for the renovation of the former Courtyard by Marriott Philadelphia Downtown building that listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The final result will be The Notary Hotel.
The history of the 15-story building, designed by architect Philip Johnson in the Classical Revival Style, dates back to 1926. With its perfect location in the heart of Philadelphia, The Notary Hotel will be very close to City Hall, Pennsylvania Convention Center, and Reading Terminal Market.
The Notary Hotel Sleeping Room
The historic building is transformed into The Notary Hotel, where classic and modern meet. The project, where Premier Project Management undertakes the responsibility for the redesign process, includes marble finishings, chandeliers, and bronze details. A historical collection of antique typewriters and exclusive bronze sculptures will be exhibited in the lobby, which reflects the historical structure of the building.
The Notary Hotel offers 499 guest rooms and 12 event rooms with a total area of more than 10,000 square feet. With 3,000-square foot Junipers Ballroom, The Notary Hotel aims to become one of the most popular wedding and business meeting locations in Philadelphia.
The Notary Hotel Restaurant
The Notary Hotel will host the next generation tapas restaurant Sabroso and the Sorbo coffee house on the first floor of the building and will be one of the new destinations of the city. And at The Notary Hotel, the guest will always be able to experience the historical music culture of the city.
At the beginning of the summer of 2019, Philadelphia will meet a brand new hotel in the building that has been there for nearly a hundred years.
