Making You Feel at Home, No Matter
How Long Your Stay

Custom furnishings made for comfort and ease, spacious bathrooms, and fully equipped gourmet inspired kitchens signal that you are in a special place. Each of our fully furnished suites is carefully designed to make both professional and personal short-term stays at The Royal Athena feel warm and welcoming. Our one- and two-bedroom luxury Philadelphia apartments are five times the size of any local hotel option, and make you feel like home with a staff to assist you with your needs. The Royal Athena amenities are comparable to a five-star hotel, such as Starbucks coffee on-site and our always-social Club Royal lounge. For those on-the-go, Royal Athena provides you with free high-speed internet access, 24/7 fitness, and outdoor amenities that can be poolside, riverside, or on the Heritage Trail. Retail amenities, everyday conveniences, and lunch, dinner or cocktails along Manayunk’s Main Street are within walking distance.
