Between dips in the rooftop pool at Sonesta Philadelphia Rittenhouse Square, guests have so many options of things to do and see. The iconic Rittenhouse Square is at the hotel’s doorstep and provides plenty of old shade trees for relaxing under, along  with carefully tended gardens, sculptures, and other works of art for enjoying. The park is surrounded by cafes, shops, and restaurants making it a place you could easily spend a sunny summer day. Events throughout the season add just another reason for visitors to add this town square to their itineraries.

The recently updated LOVE Park, with its brand new fountain, schedule of games and performances, and food truck days is another great outdoor space for Philly locals and visitors to see.

Boston’s Public Garden was the first public botanical garden in America, and it holds a special place in the hearts of Bostonians, who wait for spring to arrive and for the park to come to life each year. The park’s swan boats are a favorite of all ages, and Victorian flower displays, rare plants, and artfully designed walkways make the space perfect for photo opportunities.

Royal Sonesta Boston is just a beautiful walk along the Charles River and down Charles Street from the Public Garden and the perfect place to make your home while exploring Boston and Cambridge.
