Eye on Philadelphia: A New Four Seasons at Comcast Center

(Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia at Comcast Center)

The buzz in the City of Brotherly Love? Sure the Philadelphia Eagles are gearing up for a showdown with the New England Patriots, but we’re not talking about the Super Bowl... What we’re anticipating is a brand new Four Seasons hotel, set to open in Philly this year. What’s so exciting about this launch is its setting atop what will be the city’s tallest building. In fact, the Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia at Comcast Center will be—to quote the official press release—“the most highly situated hotel above street-level in North America, occupying the top 12 floors of the 60-story building.”

Scheduled to open in fall 2018, the Four Seasons will have 219 rooms with sweeping city views, a destination spa with enormous windows, two ballrooms, and a penthouse dining experience on the 59th and 60th floors that’s destined to be a hot spot.

The general manager is Ben Shank, who began his career almost two decades ago at the original Four Seasons Philadelphia (operated by the company from 1983 to 2015). Starting off as a busboy, his Four Seasons career spanned the continent at properties from Orlando to Maui. But Philadelphia is his hometown, and he’s proud to be returning home.
