Maybe you are a Philadelphia resident who’s between apartments after a messy break-up, or maybe you’re an aspiring novelist who needs a change of environment to get that book finished. Perhaps you’re a Jason Bourne-type rogue spy, hiding out from black ops assassins while you figure out our next move. Maybe I’ve been watching a lot of films recently. Whatever your reason for wanting an extended stay in Philly, ROOST is your go-to accommodation option.
ROOST offers all the best bits about hotels, such as the services and amenities, with that homely feeling that comes with having your own front door. Morris Adjmi Architects went to work on the 1920s Midtown building once occupied by financier Charles Packard, and reorganised the space into 27 furnished and fully-equipped residences. With monthly rentals for a one-bedroomed place coming in at upwards of $4,500, you’ll be expecting some swank. And swank you get. Apartments are kitted out with Apple TVs, Geneva bluetooth sound systems and Bonavita coffee makers for starters. On the décor side of things, the designers have opted for ornate vaulted ceilings, parquet flooring with 100-year-old Turkmen rugs, and custom artwork from LUMAS. Nest down indeed.
