The hotel is in the heart of Center City, just steps from Philadelphia’s imposing City Hall and a couple of blocks from the historic Reading Terminal Market, a popular spot with Philly’s foodies.

It’s a 15-minute walk to Independence Hall, the hallowed spot where the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution were debated and adopted. The nearby Liberty Bell is another potent symbol of American independence, and you can learn more about the importance of the Constitution at the National Constitution Center.

Independence Hall was also the site of one of America’s first gay rights protests in 1965, and the city’s Gayborhood is a few minutes’ walk to the south of the Loews Hotel. This area is full of fantastic bars, trendy restaurants, independently-owned shops and quirky galleries. Rittenhouse Square, with its elegant apartment buildings and designer boutiques, is just a few blocks away.

Hotel History

The Loews Philadelphia Hotel is housed within one of the earliest skyscrapers built in the USA, a 33-storey modernist masterpiece that was originally home to the Philadelphia Saving Fund Society. The building was designed in what came to be known as the International style, influenced by European modernism, and symbolised a dramatic break with the more ornate architecture that had gone before it. The iconic red neon PSFS sign up on the roof has been kept for posterity, and you can still see original design features such as the bank vault doors in the lobby.
