Travel Tuesday: Philly Pt II

Happy Tuesday!  If you missed my Travel Tuesday: Philly Pt I last week, you can check it out here!  We stayed at the awesome Kimpton Hotel Palomar, and saw some great art around the city.

The one aspect of the trip I saved for its own post was…of course…the food.

We were able to hit quite a few unique Philly restaurants, and I was so pleased with everything I ate in the city.  For lunch after The Barnes Foundation we were in search for the best cheesesteak in town.  We ended up at Woodrow’s Sandwich Shop, which is just a couple years old, located on South Street.  It’s also just down the street from Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens, so it’s the perfect spot to head to if you’re feeling hungry for lunch before or after you visit the gardens!

Paulina, Sabah, & I all ordered cheesesteaks, with their homemade truffle cheese whiz…yes, you read correctly…homemade…truffle…cheese…whiz.  & it was amazing.  I honestly can’t even begin to tell you how delicious it was, & with the cajun fries on the side…ah, I want some right now!! Def stop by Woodrow’s Sandwich Shop for a cheesesteak, it’s low key, and I feel like not too many people have realized how amazing the cheesesteaks are here…yet.  They will soon though, that cheese whiz is mesmerizing.

Travel Tuesday: 24 Hours in Philly Part I

Ok, full disclaimer before I get started…Philly has always been my least favorite city.  Way to open up a Travel Tuesday blog post, right?  Well, my thoughts on Philadelphia have been slightly changed by a recent girls trip over MLK weekend with Sabah & our fab travel organizer, Paulina!  We were able to fit in a lot in our one night stay, and I left Philly thinking hey, I might want to come back here again!

Paulina got an awesome deal at the Kimpton Hotel Palomar, located in the City Center neighborhood.  This was my first time staying at a Kimpton, and it did not disappoint.  The Palomar is a chic boutique hotel, in a perfect location for sightseeing.  Check-in was super quick, the woman behind the desk was friendly, and even though we were a few hours early she was able to accommodate and get us a great room right when we arrived.  Throughout our short stay, the customer service was great.
