Loews Hotel
1200 Market Street
Center City
Philadelphia, PA 19107
Cross Street: 12th Street
From $149 Double

The Loews, opened in spring 2000 in the former PSFS Bank tower, is the fine product of the marriage of an Art Deco architectural landmark and a prestigious hotel chain. The tower, located across from the Reading Terminal and the convention center, was the nation's first skyscraper of modern design and construction, with gleaming polished stone and clocks by Cartier. Loews Hotels turned the 1932 granite-and-glass building into a first-class property. The three-story entrance hall has been preserved, and petite rooms feature 10-foot ceilings, modern Art Deco interiors, and miles of spectacular views. Business aids are extensive, but watch out for the surcharges levied on phone use. For convention travelers, the location is ideal, though this stretch of Market Street is a bit grittier than it is near Society Hill or Rittenhouse Square.

Kids get special treatment in the form of Fisher-Price welcome gifts and loaner Game Boys and DVDs. Pets are coddled, too: An animal-loving concierge can provide leashes, litter boxes, catnip, scratching posts, and, well, pooper scoopers..
