Dawson Design Associates transforms former Four Seasons Philadelphia into The Logan

Hotel development and management company Sage Hospitality is converting the former Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia into The Logan, which will be part of Hilton’s luxury Curio collection. It is named after the Pennsylvania statesman, philosopher, diplomat and scholar James Logan.

Renovation work already started at the 364-room hotel, with the project scheduled for completion in Q3 2015. Dawson Design Associates is transforming the hotel in Philadelphia with an “art-inspired interpretation on modern luxury.”

According to Walter Isenberg, president and CEO of Sage Hospitality, “everything about this transformation is inspired by the city, its people, its magic and grit.”
