Transformation of Philadelphia hotel into art-inspired venue underway

by Jason Holland | 19 Jun 2015

Dawson Design Associates is to transform a traditional hotel in Philadelphia, US, with an “art-inspired interpretation on modern luxury”.

Hotel development and management company Sage Hospitality has unveiled plans to convert the former Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia into The Logan, which will be part of Hilton’s luxury Curio collection. It is named after the influential Pennsylvania statesman, philosopher, diplomat and scholar James Logan.

Renovation work has already started at the 364-room hotel, with the project scheduled for completion in Q3 2015.

A new spa and fitness centre will be created, as well as a new ballroom for events and an adjacent steakhouse restaurant. Additionally, a rooftop lounge is scheduled to open in Q2 2016.

Located at One Logan Square, The Logan is near to the US’ first botanical garden, zoo and permanent theatre, as well as a range of art collections, museums and other attractions, including the Liberty Bell Center and Independence Hall.

Dawson’s designs include dramatic deep ocean blues, metal and stone “more often associated with sculpture than Monet” throughout the lobby and first floor, while guest rooms and suites will feature entirely new moods, made possible by newly designed floor to ceiling interiors. Meeting and banquet space, as well as the new ballroom, will also feature modern designs.

"Everything about this transformation is inspired by the city, its people, its magic and grit,” said Walter Isenberg, president and CEO of Sage Hospitality. “The Logan will be something that visitors and locals don't just think of as a hotel, but as Philadelphia's favourite place to be.”
