Housed in the Philadelphia Savings Fund Society Building, the Loews Hotel Philadelphia wins big on its minimalist slate-grey style, with touches like the house spirits aging in oak barrels behind the bar at Bank & Bourbon restaurant. Families are taken care of with the Loews Loves Kids program - there are music download cards and a whole library of board games and Gameboys for teens, while little ones will enjoy the books and crayons provided in-room. Parents will also love the 'Kids Closet' supplies, from toys to baby blankets, but probably not as much as they’ll enjoy the body scrubs and steam rooms after escaping to the 12 Fit Spa.

Peter and Paul, and the grand layer-cake that is Independence Hall. Head over to nearby Rittenhouse Square for the best selection of Italian, American and Asian cuisine, or catch the subway from 11th Street Station to wander even further afield in the City of Brotherly Love.

Holiday Weekend

Enjoyed the décor of the room. Location was perfect for a Christmas weekend in the city. Only comment is that no one asked if we needed help with our bags until after we had checked in. After holding them that long we decided to take them to the room ourselves.

Don't miss visiting the Reading Terminal Market. So many food vendors could make your head spin but you'll enjoy it.

Decent Hotel

The decor seems a bit dated and the hotel in need of a renovation, but no major complaints. The fitness center was one of the best that I've encountered in a hotel, and the location was ideal. All things considered, a pretty good value.

excellent start to the weekend.

Had theatre tickets and decided to stay the night. Loews was perfect. Great location, very interesting decor, romantic and great for couples, comfortable, clean, staff was amazing - anyone we ran into asked us how we were and if there was anything they could do for us. Hit the reading terminal market and the museums the next day. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Son's 13th birthday

We had a corner room on a higher floor..it was AWESOME!! We had a great mom and son time at The Lowe's in Philly. Yes the price is high, but you def get what you pay for and it was worth every penny.

Shooping & SightSeeing in Philly

Hi, I was looking for a new city to explore and decided on Philadelphia. Here's what I liked: Front Desk Staff - they checked me in early - sent a bottle of wine and a bday card to my room (they did not have prior notice) The Room - I was on the 27th floor, - the pics of the rooms don't translate well -- it's a really nice decor. The Location - Safe and friendly surroundings, I could go out and follow Market St all the way down to Penn's Landing. I really felt in tune with the area. Door Men They were all great at recommending where to go and how to get there. What Needed some Work - Waitstaff in the Solefood restaurant (actually in philly overall) --- I don't know if it was just me, but I felt rushed to order and then rushed to pay ... but the worst of it was at SoleFood. I wasn't even halfway through my breakfast and they brought the check. This discouraged me from having drinks or any other meal there. The Spa/Gym Facilities --- First of all, it's a beautiful spa and the amenities are top notch.. But when I needed help with the lockers, one staff member actually said 'i'm busy' so I had to head back out to the front desk to get the help I needed.

Perfect location, friendly staff, good Spa

All perfect: Staff, room, location. Only thing is that the housekeeping woke us up at 8:30am on Sunday... so, please put the "do not disturb" card on your door if you do not want the same to happen.
