Sage Hospitality has unveiled plans for a new independent boutique hotel, the Logan, Philadelphia’s Hotel, which is slated to debut this fall as part of the Curio – A collection by Hilton portfolio.
The former Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia will reopen its doors as the Logan in honor of James Logan, an influential statesman in colonial Pennsylvania. The property’s Logan Square location is nearby the nation’s first botanical garden, the zoo, museums, the Liberty Bell Center, and Independence Hall.
“Everything about this transformation is inspired by the city, its people, its magic, and grit,” says 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 favorite place to be.”
Redesigned by Seattle-based Dawson Design Associates, the hotel will feature an art-inspired aesthetic after the total renovation is complete. Light pastel hues will predominate throughout the lobby and first floor, transitioning to deep blue, metal, and stone tones associated with sculpture. Guestrooms, suites, and event spaces will also feature newly designed interiors.
Amenities will include a new spa, fitness center, and a rooftop lounge to open next spring.
Adjacent to the hotel, Sage Restaurant Group will open Urban Farmer – Philadelphia’s Steakhouse as the third outpost of the award-winning restaurant concept first introduced in Portland, Oregon.
“Every aspect of Urban Farmer in Philadelphia—from the look and feel of the restaurant to the locally sourced offerings that are served there—will be custom tailored and pay homage to the people who live, work, and play in Philadelphia,” says Peter Karpinski, co-founder of Sage Restaurant Group.
