Sitting atop the glistening and glossy new Comcast Technology Center, Philly’s new Four Seasons Hotel and restaurant has been one of the most anticipated projects coming to Center City in the last few years.
And now the 219-room hotel is finally opening its doors. On August 12, The Four Seasons will accept its first visitors, and it’s currently taking reservations, according to a statement from the group.
The hotel, which sits at the top few floors of the 1,200-foot-tall center, offers rooms starting at above $600 a night and ranging from 350 to 450 square feet, officials said last fall. Guest suites can hit 850 square feet total. Amenities include a spa and wellness center (along with an infinity pool) on the 57th floor. The rooms themselves include speakers, voice-activated TVs, and a Four Seasons chat feature (which connects to an app on your phone).
But for many, the draw of the new space lies in the hotel’s restaurant, headed up by celebrity chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, which sits on the very top floor of the Comcast Technology Center. It features wall-to-wall glass, providing sweeping views of the entire city.
The Four Seasons is celebrating the opening announcement today by giving out over 1,000 umbrellas to Philadelphians at five locations around the city, in an attempt to, “provide a glimpse into the superior hospitality and unparalleled experience guests can expect at the hotel.”
