The surrounding area is home to the Valley Forge Convention Center, Philadelphia Expo Center and major corporations including Pfizer, Lockheed Martin, SunGard, AmerisourceBergen, Northrop Grumman and SAP. The hotel provides easy access to Interstate 76, along with other major highways and is also just a short commute to historic downtown Philadelphia, where travelers can visit top tourist spots like the Liberty Bell, National Constitution Center and the Betsy Ross House.

“Philadelphia is rooted in education, history, culture and entertainment, and travelers will appreciate how close Hotel Sierra King of Prussia is to everything that this dynamic city has to offer,” said Josh Davalos, general manager of Hotel Sierra King of Prussia. “We’re confident that the hotel’s intuitive amenities and guest-empowered approach will exceed guest expectations and will be an exciting, vibrant addition to the area.”

Focused on delivering a guest-driven experience, this hotel offers select amenities that effortlessly bridge the gap between domestic routine and responsibility with life on the road. A complimentary, bistro-style breakfast coupled with full-size, contemporary kitchens (suites) and dual-dedicated fitness centers help maintain daily health regiments, while free Wi-Fi, flat panel televisions with expanded cable, an interactive business lounge and the weekday edition of USA Today help to keep guests connected. Unexpected indulgences include clock radios with iPod docking stations to keep personal playlists on cue, freshly-brewed coffee, a guest shuttle and free parking, laundry and dry cleaning service, plus a 24-hour onsite market.

“With our recent acquisition of the Hotel Sierra brand from LodgeWorks, we are thrilled to add Hotel Sierra King of Prussia to our extended-stay portfolio, and we know the hotel will be a great complement to our Hyatt Place property that is also located in the area,” said Gary Dollens, global head of franchise and select brands for Hyatt. “As we transition Hotel Sierra King of Prussia to Hyatt House by early 2012 and look to build brand preference within the extended-stay segment, we are excited to expand our presence in the East Coast with this new property.”
