Loews Philadelphia completes $14M renovation

The Loews Philadelphia Hotel, once known as the historic Philadelphia Saving Fund Society building (PSFS), completed its three-month, $14-million guestroom renovation.

The restyled rooms were designed with the need to be constantly connected. As such, the rooms provide increased Wi-Fi capabilities, larger work desk areas paired with ergonomic guest chairs and several accessible electric outlets added to all 581 guestrooms to accommodate both leisure and business travelers.

The newly refurbished rooms also have new wall coverings, draperies, duvet covers, lamps and cityscape artwork. New hues of black, white and red accentuate the original black and white marble located throughout the property. Additionally the hotel converted existing space into 10 parlor suites, each with a murphy bed and a connecting guestroom for families traveling with children or business travelers.

Renovated and reopened as the Loews Philadelphia Hotel in April 2000, the former PSFS building is the city’s tallest hotel. Many of the historical features of the former PSFS building remain preserved in the hotel, including the bank’s safe, Cartier clocks and various pieces of furniture. Today, the property has more than 45,000 square feet of meeting space, including three ballrooms and 14 conference rooms.

The hotel is within distance to the Pennsylvania Convention Center, Reading Terminal, various historic attractions, museums, theaters, shops and restaurants. It also has the SoleFood Restaurant, offering a fusion of seafood inspired dishes.

Headquartered in New York City, Loews Hotels & Resorts owns and/or operates 19 hotels and resorts in the US and Canada, including the newly acquired Loews Madison Hotel located in the heart of Washington and the Loews Boston Back Bay Hotel, one of Boston’s historic buildings, situated on the corner of Berkeley and Stuart Streets.
