a crossroads where
history meets modernity

When you visit the Alloy in King of Prussia, you will be right in the middle of the action and a stones throw away from dining, shopping, entertainment, and plenty of other things to do near Philadelphia. Your hotel room is only one mile away from the largest mall on the east coast with some of the best shopping and entertainment you can experience. Looking for fresh air? Take a trip to Valley Forge National Park or the Elmwood Park Zoo to stretch those legs and take in experiences you can get no where else. Perhaps you’re staying with us for our close proximity to Villanova University? We are just a short 15 minute drive to the acclaimed university that boasts a beautiful campus and exciting D1 Big East sports.

shopping at king of prussia mall


The King of Prussia Mall opened as a very modest retail outdoor shopping center but has recently dethroned the Mall of America as the largest shopping center in the United States. Boasting 425 stores on two floors, there is surely something for everyone when you want to take a quick trip from the hotel. When you are spent from all the exciting shopping and experiences, you can retire back to the hotel for a great meal at Hammer and Fire, and relax in our comfortable hotel rooms.

Elmwood Park Zoo

Located 4 miles away from our hotel, the Elmwood Park Zoo is a great place to explore. With over 100 species that come from all over the world, the Elmwood Park Zoo is the perfect place to live on the wild side for an afternoon.

Valley Forge National Historical Park

Valley Forge National Historical Park is the site of the famous Continental Army encampment during the Revolutionary War where George Washington and troops hunkered down to survive a harsh winter and regain their strength. Currently the National History Park preserves over 3,500 acres of the original camp with restored historic building and reconstructions. The park has 26 miles of hiking trails and frequent historical reenactments, so no matter your preferred speed, there is something for everyone. 

Villanova University

The 260 acre campus, home to just under 7,000 undergraduates, is located 15 minutes away (5 miles) from our Hotel. Whether you are looking at the university for the first time or a long time visitor, the Alloy is the perfect hotel to stay at when in town visiting Villanova.
