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.

Then we dare driving into the downtown and walk around a bit to find our dinner place: am excellent and cool little place, with locally grown organic ingredients for salads and stir-fry plates. THAT food we enjoyed sooo much, after weeks of fast and junk food throughout the US. Jeanny says she had the BEST salad ever in there.
Layovers can be fun! To pass the time there are many choices, check email, call and check on family, try to sleep but the one thing we like the most is to people watch. The next time you have a layover see if you can tell where people are going to or ...

Interesting incident at station on the way back. I joined a queue to change my ticket and arrived behind a lady on the phone. Guy tapped me on the shoulder and said he was with the woman so I let him in. ...
Jusuf finally dropped us off at Independence Park for the obligatory visit to the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. Both worth the visit. By the way, the cab fare for Jusuf was $122.50, and we tipped him a hundred bucks. Just sorry we didn't think to take his picture. He was an absolute gem - - no one else would have gone out of their way for us simply for the promise of a larger fare.
Don't go away. There are more cemeteries to come.
