“From its energetic environment and luxury accommodations to its prime location in the heart of Logan Square, The Logan Philadelphia is a community landmark, and will continue to be a social magnet for locals and visitors as we celebrate a new chapter for this beautiful hotel,” said Dianna Vaughan, global head, Curio – A Collection by Hilton. “With its unique design fueled by this city’s deep history and local artwork, we’re proud to welcome this hotel to our growing collection of remarkable upscale and luxury hotels.”
Of the 391 rooms, 64 are spacious suites complete with marble bathrooms and French doors that separate the bedroom from the living area, offering travelers a residential feel. For those seeking a truly one-of-a-kind experience, guests may reserve the Presidential Suite – the new standard of urban luxury among Philadelphia hotels with an expansive balcony and sprawling views overlooking Benjamin Franklin Parkway. Other hotel highlights include an indoor heated pool, 24-hour fitness center with state-of-the-art Precor equipment and a 24-hour business center.
In addition to luxury accommodations, The Logan Philadelphia is also a culinary destination in itself. Located adjacent to the hotel is Urban Farmer Philadelphia, a unique steakhouse concept by restaurateur, Peter Karpinski, Co-Founder and COO of Denver-based Sage Restaurant Group. The Commons Lounge, located in the lobby, offers a comfortable, yet stylish place to sip a cocktail, socialize and enjoy small plates from 3 p.m. to midnight daily.
