Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia

Strange sleep on some very uncomfortable beds that felt like sleeping on a deflated air bed, my bed was the choose one as for some reason some one had put a large pointy plank of wood underneath the deflated air bed making an uncomfortable bed unbearable I think I would of rather slept on a park bench, at least you know what your getting into with them. Pancakes ...

... and cheese. We watched a film called meet the millers which was so funny! Jennifer Anniston actually plays a different character to Rachel which was surprising! My last day! One of the English guys from NYC, josh, decided to come and spend the day with me which was nice. He was in DC so was not far on the coach. It was a really beautiful day so walked down boathouse row which is a line of big, individual houses along the river. Again, this part of Philly was open and relaxing ...
... with USAIr.) Worse yet, the plane is an old Boeing 757. There is not an inch of spare leg room and the people in the row ahead push their seats as far back as they can go. I am curled up like a pretzel. The three bite size pieces of oversalted chicken in mucilaginous gravy and spoonful of overcooked green beans that pass for dinner are served by a gum-chewing flight attendant. We settle in for a long and unpleasant flight. The day is not ending as well as it ...

From there we could see New York’s skyline and it was amazingly beautiful. After a while of jumping around (needless to say that 12 hyperactive and excited exchange students together in a van results in energy levels that reach the sky), admiring the skyline, and taking group photos in front of the van, we set sail again!

Historical Traveler Reviews Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia
Superior in all respects....
The quality of service and the friendliness of staff outshines almost every place I have ever stayed at. Right on Logan Square, great location. Would recommend this hotel to anyone. The Fountain restaurant in the hotel had great food and a great view.
My husband and I were given a weekend package gift certificate. The hotel included a list of everything we were to receive as part of this package. When we checked in the hotel refused to honor the whole package and charged us for items listed as included in the package that was purchased for us. Their answer - we have decide to change the package
Four Season Weekend 8/12-15
The hotel and service were excellent. We spent 3 nights there and did all the historic and children friendly activities. We later went to the outer sites such as Valley Forge and water parks. We liked the city so much we came back for two extra days at the backend.
Great pool and spa area for the location. Wife did "Tea" with my daughther and they had a great time. Food outstanding all around.
Like many cities, Philadelphia suffers from a general labor shortage and the service in town was lacking at many points so it was always pleasant to be at the hotel itself. Everyone addresses you by name when discussing business or hotel services. Our room was a good size with a king and pull out as we have three children under 10 and it was needed. I thought they were great with the children and the hotel was very child friendly. They always helped with tourist questions and food recommendations.
It is about $100 more a night than an ordinary hotel
(say the Sheraton) but you clearly see what you are getting. We did get a weekend special in our package and I would suggest talking directly as opposed to the internet wholesale processors.
Fantastic in every way!!!
Stayed July 27-30. Was in Philly for Manchester United soccer game. The team happened to be staying there and my kids were absolutely beside themselves. The atmosphere at the hotel was fantastic....the staff was five-star all the way and the team's players and staff took special interest in their youngest fans! Hotel staff is extremely friendly and accomodating. Hotel was beautiful and room was top-notch. Well located for walking Center City. Will be returning with spouse Labor Day weekend for a well-deserved break of our own. This hotel will ALWAYS be my first choice in Philly.
Stay Aug. 6-8 2004
There is a reason the Four Seasons has an incredible reputation. Every fabulous thing you hear or read is true. From the minute you arrive, greeted by name as if the entire staff has been eagerly awaiting your arrival, to the send off with a huge box lunch that made me the envy of every one on my flight, the entire experience was nothing short of heavenly.
The Philly Four Seasons is a step back in time. The staff is friendly, courteous, knowledgable and most of all fun. The perfect balance of sophistication but not in the slightest bit stuffy.
My room was on the 7th floor with a view of the Square and lavishly stocked mini bar that made me never want to leave my room. However, the lure of the "Four Seasons in One" spa treatment proved too much and I couldn't resist .
The spa treatment was the closest thing I may ever get to an out of body experience. Never before have I been so tenderly lead through Winter Spring, Summer and Fall and emerging at the end of the journey with soft skin and loosen muscles. The treatment started with peppermint exfoliation and ending with the ultimate massage. Hands down the best I have ever received. If you have the time, get the Four Seasons in One treament. It is worth every penny and quite possibly the best spa gift you could ever give yourself or someone else.
The indoor pool is also quite large and even smells not of harsh chorine but almost a hint scent of peppermint. It is luxury at it's best.
The first night I made a meal of the in room fruit mini bar and a room service salad that I honestly wanted to photograph before I ate. It was both beautiful and delicious. The second night we experience at Fountain Cafe and Restaurant was equally wonderful. The Fountain restaurant fills quickly with reseration so we waited in the lounge. We ordered, what turned out to be the highlight of the entire trip, the Philly Steak spring roll. Carbs, Scharbs...it's the best thing I have ever tasted. It quickly made Pat's and Geno a faint memory.
The evening ended with a caloric binge at dessert tastings buffet. Small perfect sized portions of the Food of the Gods...and Goddess'. Pure indulgence!
The Four Seasons in Philly is magnificent in every way. The rooms, robes , towels, flowers etc. are all the purely exceptional quality the Four Seasons is known for, but the Philly Four Seasons is even a step beyond.
Friendly staff, magnificent food and a spa that is relaxing invigorating all at the same time.
Go! Spend the money. It's worth every penny.
Service A+++, Room C-
My boyfriend and I spent a night at the hotel in 2000. The expirence was wonderful. The hotel was very pretty. We had a drink while we waited for a our room to be ready. The staff was very nice and offered us a free drink while we waited.
The staff knew us by name, and accomidated all our wishes. The hotel itself is perfect.
The room.... welll it was a bit dowdy and cramped for my taste. I liked the Four Seasons in New York and DC better.
Other than our room, the hotel was up to Four Seasons standards.
My husband and I have stayed at our fair share of hotels and the Four Seasons in Philadelphia was easily one of the best. The room was gorgeous, furniture and appointments were so nice. The bed and linens were to die for.
But it is the service that sets the FS apart from the other upscale chains. We were constantly greeted by name. Also impressive was this: we went for our anniversary for just one night and they apparently knew that (I think I mentioned it when I made my reservation via phone) and within 20 minutes of checking into our room there was a knock at the door with complimentary strawberries dipped in chocolate and "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate around the rim of the beautiful (Royal Daulton) china plate. What a nice surprise! The restaurant was excellent for dinner and brunch the following Sunday morning was amazing! I think we gained 5 pounds in a day! The indoor pool was nice for a swim and I think almost fell asleep in the large Jacuzzi. Everything was perfect, I had no complaints. We can't wait to return. Soon!
Great Hotel,Great Food.
Stayed here in August 2003. Was very impressed with the Hotel. Had an amazing executive suite,it was very spacious. Great view. Room service was awesome(recommend Philly Cheese Steak & the Fish&Chips). Also in the evening they have a late night dessert(@midnite or around there) buffet type thing(I think its only on weekends)and it was amazing(wide selection). Only have one minor complaint. The valet was extremely slow bringing the car,even when we had called ahead of time we still had to wait. But overall I would say its probably the best hotel I have ever stayed at and I have stayed at quite afew. Would throughly recommend.
Worth every penny!
My husband and Iwanted to get away and relax for the weekend. The trip was spur of the moment and it was the first time we stayed at a Four Seasons. From the moment we opened the door to our small suite, we knew the weekend would be wonderful. The bed was so comfortable! The french doors separating the bedroom from the living room area was wonderful.
We also enjoyed the restaurant at the hotel. Breakfast was fantastic!
They also had a complimentary tea time in the lobby on Saturday. The hotel is in a great location so we walked everywhere and there is a Roman Catholic church just across the way so if you are Catholic and want to go to daily or Sunday Mass the hotel is two skips from the Church. The decor was top of the line and the indoor pool was nice. We also tried to get reservations at a top Philly restaurant before we left but were told the restaurant was booked however the concierge at the hotel was able to get a table for us. This definitely will not be our last time at this hotel.
Best of the Best
Celebrated my 44 wedding anniversary by selecting the weekend speacility package. The price was extremely reasonable, the ambiance left little to be desired and the service was impecable. We ate two meals in their dineing room the meals merrited their rateing. I highly recommend this hotel especially if you can obtain their weekend package.
