PHILADELPHIA—Sage Hospitality has unveiled the plans for the Logan, Philadelphia’s Hotel. The project has officially begun its transformation and is slated to debut this fall 2015 and will be part of Curio – A Collection by Hilton. The Logan will reopen its doors and introduce an art inspired interpretation on Modern Luxury, a contrast to the traditional décor associated with its predecessor, the former Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia.
The Logan hotel will be named to honor James Logan and further celebrates the Logan Square location. A dedicated and influential statesman, philosopher, diplomat, and scholar, Logan represents a commitment to this new hotel’s way of living: serving the public, taking action to better society, and pursuing life with unrelenting intellectual and cultural curiosity.
“When the doors re-open, Philadelphia can expect something truly unique, a hotel they will be extremely proud of,” said Walter Isenberg, president and chief executive officer of Sage Hospitality. “Everything about this transformation is inspired by the city, its people, its magic and grit.”
Throughout the lobby and first floor, lighter pastels will give way to deep ocean blues, metal, and stone. Guest rooms and suites will feature entirely new moods, made possible by newly designed floor to ceiling interiors. Meeting and banquet space, along with an all new ballroom, will offer fresh designs. New catering menus will combine historical service levels with modern menu offerings.
On the lower level, energizing and soothing color palates will create a landscape for a new spa and fitness center. A rooftop lounge will open in the spring of 2016, offering Philadelphians and guests the chance to enjoy the great outdoors overlooking the city.
Adjacent to the hotel will be a modern farm-to-table steakhouse. Denver-based Sage Restaurant Group will introduce Urban Farmer — Philadelphia’s Steakhouse to the local community. This will be the third outpost of their Urban Farmer in Portland, Ore., which focuses on serving local, organically sourced food from the region’s farmers, ranchers, and foragers. The restaurant will be open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily.
“Every aspect of Urban Farmer in Philadelphia will be custom tailored and pay homage to the people who live, work, and play in Philadelphia. From the look and feel of the restaurant to the locally sourced offerings that are served there”, explains Sage Restaurant Group co-founder Peter Karpinski.
