Originally constructed as an elegant residential hotel built in 1917, The Touraine combines original architectural details with modern comforts. The Touraine is Philadelphia's most central and beautiful address. Located on a tree-lined block of Spruce Street, the Touraine is just a quick walk to Rittenhouse Square, the Avenue of the Arts, and all the transportation and shopping of Center City. Ours is a thriving community of locally owned businesses, from craft beer to great coffee, bike repair to bagels, and countless beloved BYOBs where you can dine outside. Our block is home to exquisite buildings and vibrant street life.
