Philadelphia City Hall Reviews & Ratings

  • Disappointing and way overpriced in comparison to a free tour of a beautiful capitol building in Harrisburg. But they spent $5 million on the gates.... four gates at $1.25 mil each......You got to earn the money back somehow. This tour was almost two hours and could have been kept to 45 minutes. We kept going in and out of the dusty building to the four different parts of it and the factoids and "jokes" of the guide were not that interesting nor great.... Plus, we couldn't hear the guide very well at all- speak up and keep it short!. When inside, we kept standing at cobweb covered windows in front of what seemed to be a very busy services office and people in them were loud (a better location could have been selected for that part of the tour). We looked at paintings on the walls (not on canvass with a frame, but literal wall). The couple of rooms that we were allowed to go in were not that impressive either, again, in comparison to a beautiful and free Capitol building with marble, beautiful tile, gold, etc. This place is filthy. To add insult to injury.... Only four to five people allowed to go at a time to the top of the tower and the associate was miserable but very important. So at the end of the tour you are sitting in a room and just waiting to go up. Don't waste your time and money, just walk around Philly and visit other attractions.

  • Very lovely and vibrant place in the middle of the city. There is always something is happening. Good place for travelers, families, etc. Many historic places in a vicinity. Loved the place and the mood. It is fun at any hour of the day. Not to miss any of the nearby historic places.

  • This historic structure is massive. You can’t get the entire building in a shot it’s so large and robust. The architecture is stunning — absolutely unbelievable the use of very intricate details — look closely and you’ll note the wide variety of stone colors throughout the multiple levels — with the amazing tower itself a whole new set of tones and finishes. The tower of course is topped of by a very large statue of William Penn than can be seen in silhouette from many city blocks away. This is a must see/visit if you’re making your list of venues to include in your tour.

  • City hall in Philadelphia is a beautiful historic building. It can get quite busy around it with many tourists around. The architecture is more unique versus other city halls I have see . The statute of William Penn is on top of the building and it adds to the building history. Overall a wonderful place situated in the center or Philadelphia as it should be.

  • Philadelphia's city hall building is such beautiful architecture. Very large building that draws crowds to it. On the side they have a park with a section that has sprinklers where water shoots out from the ground. I saw many children and some adults bathing there. The place is an exciting place to explore when your visiting this beautiful city.
