Loews Philadelphia Hotel Review

Topped by the red neon letters PSFS (for the former tenant, Pennsylvania Savings Fund Society), this 1930s building was the country's first skyscraper in the ultramodern international style. With an attitude that is decidedly contemporary, the hotel has guest rooms equipped with comfortable chaise lounges and flat-screen televisions. Complimentary toys and games are available for children. There are three levels of concierge rooms with a private library and lounge. The lobby lounge and Sole Food, an eclectic, fusion seafood restaurant, both have Art Deco touches. A 15,000-square-foot state-of-the-art fitness center includes a sauna, steam room, and indoor lap pool. Be sure to check out the 33rd floor for best views of the city and beyond.

    Pleasant stay

    On a recent trip to Philly, my stand-by hotel was booked, so I gave Loews a chance based solely on the build. Conveniently located as I was spending much of my time at by Reading Market. The stay was ok. Nothing exceptional or horrible, a pleasant stay.

    boring and dull, dull and boring

    can't tell you how grey this place is, the outside of the Wanamaker building, the carpets, the staff, everything is just looks like a black and white movie and not a very good one, as the views from the windows looks like Newark. Stayed at Days Inns in Florida with more charm and staff generally very inept.
