Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia at Comcast Center opens in city’s tallest skyscraper
Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia at Comcast Center has opened in the USA’s 10th tallest building, marking the return of the luxury hotelier to the ‘City of Brotherly Love’ after a four-year hiatus.
Positioned within the highest hotel in North America, Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia at Comcast Center’s 180 rooms and 39 suites are spread between levels 48 and 60, offering unobstructed floor-to-ceiling views of the city and beyond.
Guests are welcomed upon entry to their guest room by musician, record producer and visual artist Brian Eno’s soundscapes, created exclusively for the hotel. Additional thoughtful touches include at-one’s-fingertips technology and bath products by Guerlain.
The entire Comcast Center building and the interiors and furnishings of Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia have been designed by world-renowned architect Norman Foster of Foster + Partners, who has effectively redefined the skyline of one of the country’s most historic cities.
Michelin-starred chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten has chosen Four Seasons for his Philadelphia debut, taking his place literally at the top of the city’s dining scene with the 59th-floor Jean-Georges Philadelphia restaurant and the 60th-floor JG SkyHigh cocktail bar. The restaurant will serve French-American cuisine within an atrium featuring 12-metre glass walls and a mirrored ceiling – reflecting both diners and the city below. Greg Vernick is also part of the Four Seasons culinary team as he unveils Vernick Fish, conceived as a modern American oyster bar open to the street.
The hotel’s 57th floor is a haven of health and wellness that includes an indoor pool that “spills” into the sky; a state-of-the-art fitness centre in partnership with celebrity training guru and Four Seasons global fitness advisor Harley Pasternak; a wellness boutique; and the seven-treatment room Spa at Four Seasons.
