It's Hotels Week over at our sister site, Curbed Philly, which means lots of news and features about the best places to stay in town.

And, even though most "hotel restaurants" consist of little more than a broken toaster and a few pans stuffed with dried out scrambled eggs, some are quite good. And within that subset, there are a handful of hotel restaurants that go beyond being a decent option, and are true destinations in their own right. Here now are our picks for Philly's Best Hotel Restaurants.

LaCroix

Copy Link
Lacroix is one of the best, if not the best hotel restaurants in the city. Named for legendary chef Jean-Marie Lacroix, the restaurant anchor of The Rittenhouse Hotel is known for a splendid brunch.

The Fountain at The Four Seasons

Copy Link
The other hotel restaurant competing for the title of best in town, The Fountain is a throwback to old world elegance mixed with new school sophistication. But, it's damn expensive.

David Fields is the man behind AKA's a.kitchen, which is home to some amazing small plates and the most creative wine list in the city. Celebrities from out of town show up here often.

M Restaurant

Copy Link
The Morris Hotel is a great place to stay, and M Restaurant is truly one of the city's hidden gems. The food is hyper-seasonal, and the outdoor seating is some of the prettiest around.

Square 1682

Copy Link
The Hotel Palomar is one of Philly's most unique hotels and Square 1682 matches up with it well. Chef Guillermo Tellez turns out some really special food, and the vibe of Square doesn't suffer from the milquetost hotel restaurant stigma.

10 Arts at the Ritz-Carlton

Copy Link
Even though Jen Carroll is long gone, 10 Arts hasn't missed a beat in the kitchen. The menu is full of creative small plates, and the bar offers up some delicious cocktails that'll offer up a nice buzz.

The Prime Rib

Copy Link
The Prime Rib at The Warwick is a throwback to an old school leather couches and chairs-style steak joint, complete with big-time bourbons and boisterous red wines.

Red Owl Tavern

Copy Link
The brand new Hotel Monaco brought with it two eateries, one of which is the great Red Owl Tavern. The menu has a little something for everyone, and the service is some of the best in town. And you can't beat that view of Independence Hall.

Ristorante Panorama

Copy Link
The almost hidden Penn's View Hotel on Market Street is home to Ristorante Panorama, one of the premier wine destinations in Philly. The trip is worth it if for no other reason than to see the amazing Cruvinet system.

Chez Colette

Copy Link
Chez Colette has lived inside the Sofitel for quite some time, and is the place to be for big party nights like New Year's Eve and Thanksgiving Night.

SoleFood Restaurant

Copy Link
The Loews Hotel is home to SoleFood, a seafood-centric lounge and restaurant. They've got lots of creative dishes on the menu, and in most cases the price won't burn a hole in your wallet.

Barclay Prime

Copy Link
The Barclay has gone from hotel to condo, which isn't the same, but we can't do a list like this without namedropping Barclay Prime. Of all the hotel restaurants in town, there isn't a better steak anywhere.
