I stayed here because flash-sale on a travel website. The hotel is in a great area, steps from the Old City and Rittenhouse Square. The hotel bar was quite busy and had a great selection of bourbon and unique cocktails. The room was large, but the decor was a little dated: think Patrick Bateman in "American Psycho." The staff was welcoming and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: If you are flexible, definitely check the discount websites a day or two before your trip. I saved...

Our first time to the city and Loews made it just that much better. Excellent staff and outstanding accommodations. Everyone on the staff was very friendly and helpful but we want to give a shout out to Jose, our server at the Bank and Bourbon restaurant there in the hotel. His attitude was terrific as was the food. Also, the hotel is close to the historic district which makes it very convenient. I would go there again and certainly recommend it to everyone.

Room Tip: Great city views from the higher floors

The old PSFS Building is a treat to see, and Loews has done a nice job here in this convenient Center City location. Was here for a 3 day conference, and the accommodations and meeting facilities are above average. The breakfast buffet and evening meals have a nice selection of food and beverages. My only complaint would be the elevators, waiting several minutes on more than one occasion to be able to get a ride up to my room. Could be the volume of traffic because of the multiple conferences going on at the time. It;s quick walk to the Reading Terminal Market and some excellent local food.

Room Tip: 12th floor rooms were very quiet, but not a great view of the city.

My colleagues and I spent a few days at the Loews for some meetings. The rooms are well appointed and clean. A good amount of space if you are traveling as a couple or with a roommate. The elevators are a little busy at peak times which was a tad frustrating. There are still plenty of touches left from when the building was a bank including a safe in the foyer. It is very cool!

They have a brand new restaurant with good food but a somewhat limited menu. Lots of interesting things but if you travel with kids, even breakfast might be a challenge. It also gets a little noisy in the bar which makes having a conversation a tad difficult at happy hour. The area is across from the convention center which was great if that's what you need. Lots of shops and restaurants. Overall, a great experience.

Thank Rachel R

We booked several rooms for my daughters wedding on May 23 and 24. From the moment we checked in to the time we left we could not stop raving about the courteous staff and how accommodating everyone was. Plus a pleasant surprise for the bride and groom on their wedding night with rose petals and champagne and strawberries and if that was not enough embroidered pillow cases with their name and wedding date on them! Plus we spent an evening in Bank and Bourbon and enjoyed the atmosphere and the food as well and the staff in there was just as pleasant and accommodating. We did have a huge crowd but no one had to wait for another drink or a menu! Our favorite staff member is Willie!

My wife and I stayed at the Loews Hotel in center city Philadelphia while attending my niece's wedding. The room was very comfortable with a king-sized bed, the staff were all helpful and friendly, and the snacks we had at the bar were quite delicious.
